While at the Estate Party at Photoshop World in Boston, Michael and I met Jodi, a graphic designer and model from Illinois, and luckily she was up for doing a photo shoot with us the next day! We chose to do a boudoir shoot with her at the hotel to show off all her great ink; this girl knows how to choose tattoo artists. I’d also like to point out that she is approaching 50, and look at her! I hope I age that well!

She brought along a wonderful selection of wigs for the shoot, but her real hawk was pretty fun too :)

Thanks so much for shooting with us Jodi, and thanks to Ian for assisting with lighting!

I kept this entry safe-for-work, so feel free to click:

Hotel Arts Model Shoot

Saturday, April 11th, 2009

Yesterday I took part in a great collaborative fashion shoot at the Hotel Arts in downtown Calgary. Our team consisted of three photographers, three assistants, five models, two makeup artists, and one hair stylist/salon – as well as the Hotel management and staff themselves. Throughout the evening we broke off into our teams and worked with the gorgeous models, making use of the beautiful space in the hotel. It felt really rushed (I feel like I barely shot anything!) but I was definitely pleased with the results and with the great collaboration we had going on.

Special thanks to Michael Warf for organizing the bulk of this, Torin Segstro for being my lighting assistant, the Hotel Arts for having us, and to all the models (Mikyuki, Melissa, Elaina, Rydell, and Lacey)!

I’ll hopefully share more of the shots later, but for now here are my favorites:


Pontos de Vista

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2009

I just wanted to leave a quick note to say I am featured this month on the Portuguese photography site Pontos de Vista for my zombie photos. Woot!

If you have some free time, dig around the site… there are some really cool photos on there! It’s addictive like Flickr!

(After March, you should be able to find my gallery from this link.)

Zombie Pinups: Becca

Thursday, January 29th, 2009

This Zombie Pinup session was done with Becca just a couple days before Halloween, and we were very lucky to find the ball park gates unlocked for our theme! I think this may be my favorite one so far.

My goal for this batch was to not use Photoshop… and I did it! (Except for the watermark, but you know…) Finally, I have conquered Lightroom’s brush tool, and am impressed at how versatile it was for what I wanted, and how much faster it was than doing the same thing in Photoshop. Oh Lightroom, I love you more each day.


Zombie Pinups: Cassandra

Wednesday, January 14th, 2009

This was a really hard one to narrow down, because Cassandra had such a great makeup job done. Though Cassandra is great at zombie makeup herself (she did the makeup for both myself and Dino at Lethbridge’s 2008 Zombie Walk), she enlisted the help of makeup artist Jamie Ripley, and wow! Plus, Cassandra is a zombie natural and is downright scary in some of these.

The farm girl theme worked out pretty fantastic with the location we picked :)

Zombie Pinups: Dylan

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2008

I still have two more sets of Zombie Pinups to go through, but that might not even happen until next year… but at least for now, here are Dylan’s zombie photos! She brought along two lovely outfits, and this was the most public location I’ve done these yet – right on one of the busiest streets in Lethbridge, by the mall, and in the park. It proved my point that when people encounter strange things, they pretend they don’t see anything! Only one woman was brave enough to ask, and that was only because she recognized me from the cover the Lethbridge Herald the week before from the Zombie Walk :P
