Another editorial I shot over the summer. This one was also published on Assignment Fashion Blog. It was a fun shoot, going out to the forest. I had brought a flash system along, but once I arrived it stopped working for some reason so I had to improvise with bounces and such like. Bit of a change for a studio geek for me, but it was a fun challenge and I think we got some great shots.

Further adventures in the realm of test shoots. From time to time they send in one of their international models to help build their book in a more editorial way. In this case it was a last minute add on, and with about an hour to spare I threw together a quick set with what I had lying around the studio and did this shoot.

I recently had the pleasure of shooting a 12 page editorial for SAD Magazine, a vancouver art and culture quarterly. The subject of the article is the comedy scene of Vancouver, so I was to photograph a hand full of the movers and shakers of the scene in a glamorous 40s style. This is just one of the images, you’ll have to grab the magazine to see the rest.
It was a great project to be part of! I had an amazing team helping me along the way, got to work with some hilarious people (a few shots ruined due to me laughing while hitting the trigger) and a handful of fun challenges. This shot, for example, was originally supposed to be in an office, but for unforseen reasons we had to move at the last minute to the roof of an apartment and create a scene there. Other fun challenges were building sets, like paper sky scrapers, dark offices, bohemian studios and the like, to the fact we were working exclusively with film so we couldn’t fake a thing.
I’m extremely happy with how the photos all turned out. If you’re interested in picking up the magazine its available all over the place in Vancouver or you can find it online here: http://www.sadmag.ca
