Brenda

Tuesday, February 24th, 2009

Now that the gift has been given, I have permission to post some of these photos ;)
(That, and I’m starting to catch up after being at WPPI in Vegas.)

Brenda did this photoshoot for her husband as a surprise for Valentine’s Day, and she was so excited about them that she had to show him a few days earlier! Brenda was so fun to work with, and I loved her funky hair… it wasn’t too surprising to learn that she is a hair stylist!

Fashion Shoot at the Pool

Monday, February 9th, 2009

On Sunday I got to partake in one of the most exciting shoots I’ve ever done! A group of photographers made up of Lethbridge folk and Calgary Strobists got together with the U of L swimming team, a group of models, a fashion designer (Caitlin Power), a makeup artist, and a scuba diver (Chris) for what can only be described as epic. Michael Warf, Kevin Logan, Cody Belter, and I split off to do head shots of the swimmers while the other photogs set up for the fashion shoot, and then we all headed to the dive take window to take part. All the models and swim team must really be commended for the great work they did… their jobs were not easy!

Cassandra

Sunday, January 11th, 2009

Okay, I admit, sometimes when it comes to me grabbing models and doing shoots I’ve planned out, I can get a little behind on editing them! So here it is, finally, the shoot I did with Cassandra just after I got back from California in November.

We revisited the old abandoned farm where we had shot her Zombie Pinups because I was just so in love with the inside of one of the barns. It has this strange (because I’m not a farm girl and don’t understand it!) series of metal rods running along grids inside, and tons of cracks for light to spill in. It was perfect for some daytime light painting! I love doing light painting on models… it’s just hard to get them to hold absolutely still for 30 seconds, but Cassandra was awesome at, you know, not breathing for that long.

Cassandra and I both hit our heads on the rods a few times, but luckily I never tripped!

After stepping over pigeon “remains” in there for long enough, she changed and we did some photos outside around the barns in her reeeeeeally cool blue corset. Not as cool as her Carmen San Diego hat, but cool nonetheless.

Kelsie sneak peak

Sunday, January 4th, 2009

On New Years Day I took a very brave Kelsie out for some winter photos. Henderson Lake, the Lethbridge location normally most overrun with wedding and portrait photographers, was absolutely barren except for a jogger and an unfortunate man stuck in a snowbank, trying to dig his vehicle out… oh, and us fools! It started to snow just as we left Kelsie’s house, which added such a gorgeous haze to the background of the photos. (I won’t complain about how long it took to Photoshop the snow flecks off of Kelsie.)

Cassandra

Monday, November 3rd, 2008

I am seriously bad for posting these because I am supposed to be working on other things and be in bed, but I couldn’t wait! Back when I did zombie pinups of Cassandra I noticed she is an awesome model (willing to climb all over and create her own poses) so today I finally did some “normal” photos of her, returning to the same location where we had done her zombie photos!

Sarah & Theo

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2008

Because last year was so awesome, Sarah and I wanted to do it again with her other horse, Theo (the one in my award winning photo!). Theo is a lot harder to work with because all he wants to do is eat, and it’s hard to push that Crusher around to get him to do what you want, but when we distracted him from grass/reins/dresses/other chewable things long enough, it totally paid off.
