As an avid gear-head, I have longed to combine my love for cars/motorcycles and fashion in a photoshoot... until now. Get a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the workflow of this great men's fashion shoot! This project wouldn't have been possible without the tireless and creative efforts of Paul, David, Reed, Jeremy, Shaareen, Gelareh, Bram, and all the models involved. A special thanks go out to Broncolor (Canada), Tether Tools, and the Riverside BIA. I am forever grateful for the support and opportunity to turn this concept into fruition - thank you!
This is the first - of what I hope will be many more - BTS videos showcasing my photography. I'm always found behind the camera and not in front, so this is definitely outside my comfort zone. I hope that you can take something good away from this video and have it inspire you. For this #HowIGotTheShot video, I'm using colour gels (in blue and red) on strobes to create metallic-looking dark glam looks and one beauty look. Regardless of what gear you own or rent, being able to achieve these looks is fairly simple - you just have to step outside the box and get creative! I couldn't have done this photoshoot without the great team involved - check them out in the credits and give them a follow. A special thanks go out to Broncolor (Canada), Tether Tools, and Studio311 for their support with this project.
During early 2016, I came up with a concept to showcase the beautiful iconic landmarks of Toronto - my beloved city. The premise was simple: I would seek talented creatives (hair stylist, make-up artist, videographer, drone videographer, designer, etc) and scout some of the most recognizable locations across Toronto. With the popularity of the term "6ix" describing Toronto - in way of the area code 416, the concept came to be - 6 models (regular people), shot in 6 days, at 6 locations. This project couldn't have been achieved without the work and assistance of some talented individuals, so be sure to check them out in the credits and give them a follow.
