Bethany

April 15th, 2009

Last weekend Bethany was in town for Easter, so we went out on Saturday afternoon (you know, when the weather was still nice… what’s up with the weather this week??) and did a fun fashiony photo session. You see, this was only fair after her sisters Erin and Krista got the supermodel treatment in Las Vegas, but Bethany hadn’t been on that trip, so we had to settle for the slightly less glamorous Lethbridge! Bethany is a hottie like her sisters so she was pretty easy to photograph :)

Special thanks go out to her mom, Verna, for being the bubble assistant!

Jodi

April 11th, 2009

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

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:

Boston / Photoshop World 2009

April 5th, 2009

Two weeks ago I attended my very first Photoshop World, which was held in Boston MA. I was joined by co-worker and fellow photographer Michael Warf, and we had a phenomenal time! I learnt a huge amount at the convention, and our after hours shooting filled my portfolio with some wonderful things.

Naturally, on the slideshow above I had to pay homage to one of my all time favorite bands, the band who “saved” me from pop music, the Mighty Mighty Bosstones. Secretly I wished terribly to run into at least one member of the band while there… but sadly I don’t think they hang around Photoshop conventions!

Baby Kian

April 5th, 2009

The last time I saw Kian was when he was a tummy bump, so I was excited to get a chance to photograph him this morning. He’s such a cute baby, and very curious and quiet, so he barely fussed through our entire shoot because he was so interested in the camera! He was easily one of the calmest babies I’ve ever photographed, so that made my job a lot easier :)

Cyndy & Austin

April 5th, 2009

I met Cyndy this February when she wanted to get some Valentine’s photos done for her boyfriend Austin, and today I finally got to meet Austin now that he is in town for a bit! I had a great time with these two; they are so cute together! Cyndy described herself as being shy, but around him she is constantly glowing and grinning. He’s the same; he said he’s normally serious in photos, but couldn’t hold back the smiles around her. I love seeing people so much in love!
