New milestone and YouTube Chanel for mpStudio

whoa! 200+ likes on my facebook page! To celebrate, I decided to make a speed edit video of my favorite light painting photography on Photoshop. This couple of weeks have been crazy! First a road trip down Calgary and living in a hostel, then meeting Renee Robyn from Renee Robyn Photography, and getting a chance to eat dinner beside her and talk to her for hours about photography and life!  Not only that my mpStudio Photography YouTube channel was finally born a few days ago!

There are so much I’d like to write about! But first, LET ME TAKE A SELFIE!!

This session was taken inside a huge sewer pipe that I found on the first snow in Edmonton. At the time the snow just hit, and I was getting desperate because the pipe was getting wet, so I called Micahel up to explore this cool opportunity. After our shoot, I was ready to do this for real… but before I even called anyone up the pipe was taken away the very next day! I guess I should be glad I got to do a shoot here! It was so much fun!

Fall Portrait Session at St-Albert Ravine

Another Fall photo shoot and this time at the beautiful ravine of St-Albert just 20 minutes outside of Edmonton. The leaves are fresh and the weather is great, got myself a very hard to handle 85mm lens from Vistek rental, and Dani and I are ready for some photo fun! St-Albert is a small town known for their huge green house store called Hole’s but very little people know  that St-Albert is fall of beautiful ravines and parks! I was lucky to know a friend who I play music with and lives in St-Albert, so she knows all the hidden gems of St-Albert.

This photo shoot was all fun, but there was a small episode… With all the growing gears comes growing responsibility and organization skills! I’ve recently struggled with what choice of weapon to bring to each photo shoot especially weekends when I have a full day of chores and errands to run. So today, I finally hit an oopsies. I dropped my keys at the back of my car and locked myself out of my own car!!!! I was super lucky to have my friend Virginia come out personally and called the toll truck company and break into my car in order to return to Edmonton in time after the photo shoot! What an embarrassing day in front of these beautiful ladies. =/

Here are the pictures in batch, I have the full sized photos at the end. Enjoy!

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!
