Prom Dress Photo Session CCIS Ualberta

A photo shoot I did for this beautiful grad dress along with the designer & maker. The idea stemmed because I wanted to look for a big puffy dress or graduation dress to shoot with. Jo has been looking for a shoot and capturing how she looked before she chops a huge length of hair for a charity called Hair Massacure. Knowing Jo is a designer and has made a dress she never got to wear to her high school prom, this photo shoot was definitely inevitable!

Quite happy with how it turned out. Hopefully I’ll get to shoot with her again when her hair gets chopped off  =)

Don’t you just love her long dark hair? If it wasn’t for a cause, i’d do anything to stop her from chopping her hair xD

Absolutely love the simplicity of it! The benches at the University of Alberta are definitely something!

Calgary model CoCo

Calgary Trip Fashion Photography

I’ve had the opportunity to travel down to Calgary with a buddy a while ago, and I met up with an old friend who happens to be super talented and had some modeling experiences. for more info on CoCo you can visit her page here.

This shoot was totally unplanned and uncalled for! We drove down with all the equipment I own simply because we don’t know what location and how everything will be! I almost always plan my shoots, but this time I decided to let the shoot take its course, and see what the wardrobe, model, environment, and equipment takes me!

Does the whole blindfold theme remind you of 15 shades of grey?

Studio Fashion Headshot Portrait Photography

In the studio for some head shots and fashion oriented photography! I had a chance to set up a backdrop and get into some indoor studio action!We’ve had sooo much fun! There is much to learn in the studio. When your subject is confined in an area there is no stories to convey, suggest, nor can they give “life” to your story. They act differently and rarely natural. So the photographer needs to do most of the leading in her emotions, what poses and facial expressions they give you.

Tanning Studio Promotion Photo Shoot

Got an assignment from a Sherwood Park based Tanning Studio to shoot a before and after spray tanning photo shoot for model! Ashley the model actually contacted me herself after seeing some of my work, and i’m totally glad to take on the challenge! Baja Bronze Custom Spray Tan is a very homie studio owned by an extremely nice lady Dani who is also a loving mother. She gave my assistant and I great hospitality during her stay at the studio during our shoot, and in such a short time we have all somehow became friends. We even got Dani’s little girl to help with a few lighting set ups haha.

Ashley is definitely amazing to work with, we had a lot of fun thinking about different ideas and she was super excited about making it happen! Aside from having great skin and being beautiful, Ashley surprises me every frame when she puts in her own style and touch of creativity into the ideas we talked about and we had such a good time! All the photos came out soooo nice!

Ashley had some pretty nice poses, so I thought i’d include all the proofs here. Thanks again to Ashley who let me release the photos for my promotional use. They’re truly some good images I can show off as a strobist photographer!

Sugar Skull Makeup Photo Session

Halloween is coming! Had an on-location Sugar Skull Makeup photography session last Sunday with the talented model Clarissa as a belly dancer! Clarissa is a young lady who is striving to achieve her dream as a make up artist / hair stylist and gaining experience modelling on the side. I don’t usually work with models so when we were acquainted, I presented her with an idea of my own and a location for the shoot like I do with everyone else. Clarissa not only had her own ideas but had amazing ideas that built on top of what I had!!

Despite the sudden drop in temperature that Sunday, she stuck to it and also came to great lengths in order to come to this shoot. This shot has some pretty tricky things we have to hurdle, and so I needed yet another assistant for lights and thank goodness Clarissa had a companion with her because she also helped out with the shoot. It was a cold, but very fun day and I’m quite happy with the results.

This shoot relied heavily on flash gels to pump the color, and I’m beginning to get more familiar with color grading on photoshop so this shoot definitely benefited from it. Included are some of the original shots at the bottom. For those wondering how it was taken I have included some unedited photos! Enjoy!

If you’d like to see more of Clarissa’s work from other photographers, here is her Facebook Page. Oh and here is my Facebook Page.

So anyway, Happy Halloween! Stay safe. =)
