ASHLEY, ONFILM MAGAZINE (SKULLS PART I)


Ashley Dane Clark was amazing in the first part of my Skulls series and our success made its way to an online feature to OnFilm Magazine! It was a little bit of a wait, but totally worth it as a perfect way to kick of the series now published on my website under Projects (OnFilm's feature here!) Pretty happy that I was also able to share some photographs from this project while under wraps at my school's year end gallery show - MOSAIC. It was a fantastic experience I didn't get to blog about but it was a really cool turn out and thankful for everyone that was able to make it out to the event.

Finally, There was also some incredible behind-the-scenes filmed and directed by Twayne this weekend! Check it out here and make sure to visit the rest of Twayne's channel.

NEXT, IN THEORY


This past weekend I had a pretty busy day alongside Tiffany Rose Miles. We completed two shoots in the span of 6 hours with heaps of outfits and rolls on rolls of film. Our first shoot was with the stunning Chantel Scott with NEXT Models who I had shot at Next's office space. My goal for these shoots were to keep it really simple and minimalistic with nice shades of brown pastels, which Tiffany manage to pull out of a hat. It looked really good! My second shoot was at Raad Rahman's new space, Studio Theory with Plutino's talent Riley Young. This shoot was also greatfully assisted by my photographer friend Inna who made my life so much easier that day. We were pushing the natural light until late in the evening, and manage to secure a large set of outfit changes in the time we had. Needless to say, spring light is finally here!

ACT III


The other day was pretty awesome shooting at the R.C. Harris Water Treatment Plant in the east end of Toronto. It was super cold, but we pushed through it and came up with an amazing shoot. The location wasn't my first option when I decided to shoot with Shain Hanson, however, my team and I saw the opportunity here to build on the Skulls Series. Shain and I have met a couple times prior to shooting together, which to me has been really cool bouncing ideas together but I felt it was gonna be sweet to include her into this project. My initial concept for our shoot fell through, but when I saw what Tiffany pulled and the looks Kathleen had come up with for the Skulls Series, I was stoked. More from this shoot will surface soon enough, but here's some sneak peeks behind-the-scenes to Act III.

ACT I & II


This past weekend was jam packed with a couple of really exciting shoots. I had spent the two days in New Market with the help of some very talented and wonderful people creating the first two parts of a really cool series I have coming up. I had the wonderful Miami/Toronto based model Ashley Dane Clark and an amazing photographer (and also one half of Enzee Creative) Natasha Wiseman in front of my camera this weekend for the first parts of this Skull Series project. With the help of our friends from Bastone and Co., Sad Truth Supply and SkullStore Oddity, I'm really excited about the outcome of these last two shoots. It was a very smooth beginning to the series and had a lot of fun with both teams. However, for now I wanna share some behind the scenes taken by photographers Anthony D'Elia and Inna Tcherkacheninova, also my two assistants for the weekend, on a Kodak disposable. More to come, so stay tuned!

SARAH FOR OSPHILIA


It's been a while since I've showcased this set from Montreal I shot with Sarah Farnham. Osphilia, a nude/implied art collective, had recently featured the series to their new curated artist's gallery and I'm super excited to share more of the series with you. Some of these images have yet to see day light, so make sure to check them out on their new look website. I've also receieved this incredible sketch by another Sara, Sara Fuentes from Santander. To check out the feature click here or click on the image below!

JORDAN WITH IMG

Jordan was super cool to shoot with the other week. She had hit me up while she was in town for Toronto Women's Fashion Week so we had limited time to set something up. Luckily my buddy Andre had a plug to a studio later the next day and so we swung by and made it happen. I had about an hour and a half with her which I managed to shoot an entire roll of film and blitz some digital images. Jordan's a super talented model, and such an ambitious person that it was really easy to get along with her and quickly take pictures of with ease.  The studio was a relatively new space, readily equipped but still needed to be furnished, yet we worked with the time, light and space we had and got a ton of wicked shots we're both super excited about.
