Masquerade Mask with Glitter

Masquerade Mask with Glitter Makeup

Masquerade Mask with Glitter Masquerade mask with just a touch of glitter; just kidding LOTS of glitter!!! I wanted to do a shoot with glitter for the longest time. The vision for the shoot was simple, I wanted to use blue and gold glitter. I wanted the model wearing a dress or a top from the opposite side of the color wheel and  I wanted her to have platinum blond hair and bangs. Since my model didn’t have platinum blonde...

Using the Sun to Backlight

Using the Sun to Backlight Fashion photography

Using The Sun to Backlight Most of the time when I am using the sun to backlight, I try to put the sun behind me when I shoot my models/subject, so that they will be lit. For this shoot with Auneetuh (check out her blog!) I have the sun behind her and I shot into the sun, which created a beautiful rim light effect. Shooting into the sun can sometimes create a lens flare and also darken your subject. You...

Angel’s Portraiture

Angel’s Portraiture There are moments as a photographer that the creative process grants you the opportunity to be inspired and energized by someone else’s journey and story. Many people see photography as a one-dimensional picture; there are few that can see the artistic traits and dimensions of a picture. There are stories behind each of the faces that you see staring back at you. I experienced this with my latest model, Angel, as we finally got to the studio after...

BLUE & FUR

BLUE & FUR Hello September! The weather is still tranquil, but there is a little chill in the air. The leaves are changing colour and soon autumn will be here, but the change in season needn’t be cause for dread – if you meet it with some style and little hollywood glamour that is. Hence, my concept for the latest shoot: BLUE & FUR. The idea for this shoot was to create a cool night-like atmosphere with the use of blue colored gels, and...

L’Occitane Anti-Aging Cream

L’Occitane Anti-Aging Cream Sometimes, I forget how old I am. In my mind I’m still 18. I feel great and my body is strong; but when I glance at the mirror and notice one or two new lines in my face.

Actually no, but if you wish to maintain your youthful allure, I suggest a daily regiment of...

Bridal Gowns

Bridal Photo Shoot There is an immediate visceral attraction to bridal gowns designed by Anna Lang. Every time I enter her boutique shop: I am enamored by her creativity, her command of design, and her impeccable sense of style.  Her collection is a testament to her much deserved praise as one of Winnipeg’s top wedding gown designers. It was a privilege to photograph a few of these dresses with the collaboration of models, make-up artists, hair stylist, and creative professionals....
