It’s been a bit of a challenge staying creative over the last couple of years as this ongoing pandemic has shut us down yet again. That included updating and writing blog posts here too, so I apologize for not being more active with updates and sharing new work. (more…)
Andrea and I go back almost to the beginning of my journey photographing people a dozen years or so ago and although we’ve both been very busy over the years doing what we do, we have always stayed in touch and when Andrea asked me to help create some new portraits to help show off her “tom boy” side, or really, her true self, I said “Of course!!”
I moved into a new shared studio space in the North End of Halifax about six months ago but things have been so busy between work, client sessions, waterfalls and pandemic shutdowns that it’s been difficult to find enough time to get comfortable shooting in this new to me space. So this seemed like the perfect time to experiment and adapt some tried and true lighting techniques for the smaller space.
Suffice it to say that we had a blast shooting these images and spent most of our time telling stories, catching up and, as expected, laughing our asses off. 😛
Andrea was thrilled with the results and I hope you enjoy them too!
It’s been very tough to schedule anything this year. Between ever changing regulations and restrictions to lockdowns and cancellations. Even with these challenges, we tried very hard to shoot as often as we were able but ended up shooting only about 1/3rd of what we normally shoot in a regular year. So, since we truly believe in quality over quantity, the little we did manage to shoot ended up being some of the very best we have ever produced in our 13 year history. (more…)
We’ve been leading this trend in Atlantic Canada for about 2 years now and have been investing a lot of time to work out the technique and skills required to create these wonderful pieces of art (more…)
