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!

Portrait Session & Posing

Had a great portrait photography session right in downtown Edmonton! Lindsey was my last scheduled friend this summer who was kind enough to let me try out poses and play around with lights (which by the way I have just purchased) to gain more shooting experience shooting portraits. I’m also going to tap my experience into one of the greatest portrait photographer debate: To pose or not to pose your subjects?

I have scouted this spot since the first day I began scouting for portrait locations, and it’s at a really old abandoned building right beside the police station in downtown Edmonton.  The beauty of this location lies in the texture of everything and how much space I got to shoot and to hide my lights for the shoot.

Bridesmaid Photo Fun

Went down to Sherwood Park for a photo session with these ladies. I was contacted by one of the bridesmaid and was asked to do a photo session with just the girls a week before Oli’s actual wedding. What an honor! In my opinion, I think the key to a successful relationship/marriage lies largely on the married couple’s friends and family as well. These bridesmaid are definitely just as important to this session as the bride to be! So I sort of decided to leave Oli the bride out as the centre of attention, and treat this shoot as a celebration of their friendships and relationships. These girls were all a lot of fun to work with! We ended up going on a small tiny hike somewhere I selected and used the mid-day overcast sky to our advantage and worked out some pretty awesome photos here.
