On the weekend I took part in my first real shoot of the year. Although I took some photos at the 2019 Motorcycle Supershow on the 5th of January. (You can see the previous entry on this.) This latest shoot involved working with a great bunch of models and other photographers. the primary theme of the shoot was to create portfolio shots for the models as well as increase the depth of my own portfolio. Out of the 5 models I shot with on Saturday I had only shot with one of them before so working with new talent is always exciting.
I recently visited the first Motorcycle show of the year to see if I would like to get anything new for my riding season. There were a number of motorcycles that were up for sale that I certainly would like to have taken home, however I would have had a tough time explaining to the “Boss” that I spent a couple of grand on a new toy. I had to satisfy myself with just being able to capture a number of images of the machines on the ground.
Along with the motorcycles there was entertainment put on as well as a leather fashion show. I captured some of the shots from those events too.
Here as some more of the bikes there.
The second of my shoots for the festive season involved four other ladies. I have had the pleasure to shoot with most of these ladies before and it certainly was a pleasure to renew the friendships that we have established over the past.
The first of the ladies is Emily. We have shot together a number of times and everytime I do she never ceases to amaze.
Karo was one of the new models that I shot with and as you can see she is a natural. I got many terrific shots of her and look forward to shooting with the again.
Kristina was another of the models that I have shot with before. She as you can see is obviously very photogenic. You cannot seam to take a bad shot of her.
Kim has shot with me a couple of times before as well. She is always a pleasure to shoot with. Totally in the spirit of the season she lights up the set better than any of the lights.
This was an awesome shoot with these ladies and throughout the coming year I hope to shoot with them all again.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
I have been up to a number of Christmas themed shoots in the last couple of weeks, having the opportunity to shoot with some very talented ladies attired in festive costumes. This post deals with one of these shoots. Here I capture the Festive looks of Cristiana, Hannah, Ana Belle and Alaska.
I recently attended the Vistek Profusion show in Toronto and picked up some new equipment. A couple of Litra LED lights which will allow me to take some lighting on the road and light things up more easily. It was also an opportunity to meet some beautiful ladies. two in particular Emily in her bright red dress and Melanie sitting quite comfortably in a nice high back leather chair.
Hailey wanted to do a shoot dressed like Sandra Dee from Grease. I don’t know about you but she really nailed the character. Her hair was done by the very talented Shania Lawless.
I had the opportunity to take part in a fitness shoot at a new gym. I got some great shots of the lovely ladies working out on the equipment, however I would be remiss if I did not thank our lovely models Kathleen, Celine, Stephanie and Anne as well as the gyms owner Zach and the organizer of the event, Geoff. What a great experience.
I had the pleasure of taking part in a Meetup at Britannia Beach this last weekend. It was a convocation of both models and photographers all coming together in the beautiful weather to take part in a terrific event. There were over 60 people in attendance at the Meetup with 40+ Photographers and 20+ models. It was a relative round robin of shooting the models in all sorts of poses and outfits in different locations at the beach.
I and a couple of other photographers took part in a COSPLAY Boudoir shoot with some very talented young ladies with a very creative way to introduce Cartoon Bombshells. As you can see from the images below there were 5 different characters. She-Ra, Marge Simpson, Holly Wood, Betty Boop, and Jessica Rabbit.
This past week I had an opportunity to shoot with a very beautiful lady. With her being new to the modelling world she was learning all the tricks of the trade in order to have photographers capture that perfect shot. I have posted a couple of unedited shots here but will soon have the opportunity to clean them up a little. As you can see she is a stunning young woman who will no doubt go far.
