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.
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 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.
Recently I participated in a Boudoir shoot. Not really all that different than any other boudoir shoot other than this was in support of Lung Cancer Research. The hostess of the day offered up her home to us to shoot in also provided the fantastic makeup for the models as well. The results were nothing less than incredible. But who am I to judge…you can do that yourself by viewing the images below.
All in all I was pleased with the results and our hostess, Michelle was very pleased with the amount raised in support of such a worthy cause. Our lovely models were Kristina, Andrea, Trish and Julie. All I can say is wow. These ladies looked awesome and it was very easy to get some great shots.
I participated in a Bodypainting shoot with the lovely Rebecca Ann. She was painted in the style of a Celtic Warrior by the incomparable Bill Milward. The results as you can see were spectacular. One of the neat things is that one of the rooms we shot in was painted blue lending itself to being able to use it for Chromakey(Green Screen) photography allowing me to edit some the pictures and put them in Celtic like scenes. The overall product turned out amazing.
Recently I had a terrific shoot with an exceptional lady and her horse. Emily and I shot at her stables and even though we were shooting indoors inside the stable it was incredibly cold. Although we were indoors, the stable itself was not heated and the outdoor temperature was -16. It was pretty close to that inside. We managed to capture some awesome shots of her with her horse.
Even though she had not done much modelling in the past it is obvious to see that she is a natural beauty in front of the camera. The interaction of her with her horse was truly a pleasure to see. I consider myself lucky to have worked with her and would definitely relish the chance to do so again. Hopefully it will be in a much warmer atmosphere.
