Over the course of the past of weeks I had orchestrated something pretty crazy and new in my books. I had reached out to Peggi LePage, a mother agent who manages/develops some of Toronto's most talented models, with the idea of testing a few of them in a single day alongside my buddies Rupert and Andre. Rupert is one heck of a talented and accomplished photographer while Andre, while accomplished in his own right, has been someone I've looked up to for a long time now with his amazing portraiture work. We knew we had a similar approach when it came to portrait photography and we knew we wanted to collaborate on a project together. In a sense, we were really excited about the prospect of shooting all at once!
With the help of Ashley Huszti and doing an amazing makeup job on the models (as always!), this was also the first time collaborating with wardrobe stylist Aliecia Brissett who, needless to say, definitely killed it too! After a successful day, exhausted camera shutters, hot strobes, and the many rolls of film shot with Peggi's models - Oksana, Sarah, and Emily - we are super stoked to show you what we've created that weekend very soon! For now, here's some behind-the-scenes from that day shot by me while creeping around jamming to the new Black Panther album.
