Hi Blog! Long time no update, anyways, I had a photoshoot a few weeks ago with my girlfriend, her co-worker Natalie, and their boss. They’re putting together an advertisement to be printed in Preston Magazine for their salon, so we shot our friend Carissa, in the art gallery beside their salon. If you’re looking for a kick ass haircut in Ottawa, go see my gf iLona at Texture Hair Salon - http://www.texturehairsalon.com/
Here’s one of my favourite shots from the shoot, just strobes through umbrellas, one from below, one from above.
I’ve been out shooting quite a bit, and skateboarding.. well not so much, mostly just shooting. It’s pretty embarassing how terrible I’ve become at skating, actually it’s really embarassing, I just can’t find the time to get out and do it like I used to, I guess my devotion to golf is part of the problem. I’ll update soon with some skate photos, for now here’s a photo I shot in the studio a few months ago that I never got around to editing. Ilona Bohlman did hair, and Ellie McMillan did the make up, the model is Grace from Cover Models Management.
It’s been a fun weekend, I revisited my old drinking hole (Ralphs) with Mindy, Colin and Rob on Friday night.. the place hasn’t changed one bit. Saturday hit up some rock and bowling for my birthday, then down to the pump.. Basically I drank more this weekend than I have all year. Good times I think? Happy St Patty’s day to everyone, drink green beer.
Another photo of Whitney from my shoot with her a few weeks back. I’ve been busy and neglecting my photoshopping duties. I turn 27 next week, send me presents for my new house.
A shot from last week with Whitney one of Vireshs newer models, I’ve been shooting a bit more lately, and the spring is coming soon, I actually can’t wait. I bought some new golf clubs that I need to hit. I’ve also spent the past month and a half working on www.wheelsandwax.com a community based website that I run for action sports photographers. I managed to integrate the existing phpBB message board (including the user database) into Joomla and combine it with Coppermine for a Photo Gallery section. Anyways enough geek talk, here’s a photo of Whitney (Make up by Ellie McMillan):
I had my first shoot in the studio 2 weeks ago, since sometime in November. I shot two of Viresh’s models Ioanna and Adrian, we were just going for some simple beauty shots, which was probably a good thing given how rusty I was. This model is Ioanna, and the make up was done by Ellie McMillan. Oh and happy Valentines Day to everyone.
I did a shoot with Val about a month ago, I just took forever to get to the photos. I always seem to get side tracked, speaking of which I still have about 10 outstanding ones to edit.. grr.
Another photo of Alison from Cover Models Management, we shot this one outside on sparks street in Ottawa. It was actually pretty cold outside, I already miss the summer.
This is a photo of Erik from Cover Models that I shot about a month and a half ago, I’ve just finally gotten around to going through all the photos, it’s amazing how quickly I can get overwhelmed with photos to go through and edit, I think I’ve got 30 or 40 photos left to edit. I started watching the Sopranos today, season 1, disc 1 & 2.. not bad stuff.
I had a shoot on Saturday, and despite feeling completely out of it; mostly due to Friday nights shenanigans; I made it out with just some coffee in my stomach to meet up with Viresh and one of his new models Alison. I decided that we should just hit up Sparks street and shoot some shots looking down towards the city, and Viresh spotted this bench and thought it’d make a nice 2 page spread, I thought vertical with empty space was radder. Alison from Cover Models Management.
And Happy Birthday to my MOM
