[NSFW] Bubbles - Untold Magazine

We may be locked down for the third time in twelve months and I haven’t picked up my camera in almost a month now, but there is still some catching up to be done as there are a few shots I haven’t had the chance to share yet.

Back in February, I got a call from my friend Amber who was looking to expand on her OnlyFans content and we hashed out a few ideas. One of them was to shoot in a bathtub full of bubbles and and the idea was born! We were joined by #DreamTeam makeup artist, Bryana and my good friend Paul came along to assist and we ended up creating a pretty amazing set of images. So much so that we submitted them to several magazines and we were eventually published in 2 awesome magazines. Dominante, a French based men’s glamour magazine, and a wonderful new high end magazine, Untold, where we managed to grace the back cover!! This was a wonderful surprise and are thrilled to have been selected for this honor and to be included with some incredible talent from around the world. 😀

We can’t wait for this lockdown to end so we can get out again to start creating some gorgeous new images!

Sunday Morning Sunshine - Edith Glamour with Amanda

With this publication, we top over 50 print publications over the last 4 years in a wealth of magazines from around the world. The latest is also one of our latest sessions and one of the quickest publication turnarounds we’ve seen, barely 4 weeks! Thanks to Edith Glamour for accepting this set with the incredibly talented Amanda and assisted by my good friend and fellow photographer Paul Girvan. This edition provided us with 10 gorgeous pages in the magazine feature plus the back cover!

This is the fourth time we have used this boutique hotel in Halifax’s north end for client sessions and we absolutely love the light in this particular suite! Unfortunately, this time around, the striking, high contrast light you see in the title page only lasted about 5 minutes and with the clouds, never came back all weekend as the sky clouded over and was grey for the rest of the weekend. No, don’t get me wrong, cloudy skies make for fantastic diffused light, which always looks amazing, but the high contrast early morning light is magical. 🙂

Also, when you have a wonderful model like Amanda, it’s difficult to not take amazing photos and this set looks to be one of our most popular for publication to date, with 3 sets approved so far!

Enjoy!

Premier Issue of Krome Magazine - Part I (NSFW)

We were pleasantly surprised last week when we were asked to be part of the international premier issue of a brand new fine art magazine called krome magazine!

This is an excerpt of one of two sets included in Volume 1 Issue 1 featuring the incredible Toronto based traveling art model, Joy Kidston, from a set we shot a couple of years ago at Churchill House, Hantsport, that remains one of my favorite sets of images to this date.

Hope you like it too! Check out the new magazine and pick up your copy here.

Watch for the second set in the coming days as well!

Xpressions Magazine - The Ka (NSFW)

It’s been a crazy busy year and I hope to add a few more updates over the coming weeks but I wanted to share this bit of good news right away. 🙂

We’ve been published for our third time in Xpressions Magazine (https://www.facebook.com/XpressionsMagazine) for their December 2017 Fine Art Nude edition featuring a shoot we did with the incredibly talented Kelly “The Ka” Martell. These images were shot in an underground bunker about 2 years ago with my friend and fellow photographer Glen Burnett using only ambient light and a small LED flashlight as the source. 

I hope you enjoy the images.

Location Boudoir Session with V

V and I discussed shooting for several weeks before we finally managed to find a time that worked for her as she runs her own small business several hours from Halifax making it difficult for her to find the time to travel. So we met half way at a heritage property in the Annapolis Valley that has some absolutely stunning rooms, windows and furniture to work with.

We still only had a very short time that the space was available to us so we picked a few locations and a single outfit and off we went to create some beautiful images.

Boudoir Portfolio Building with B

I’ve photographed B several times and have even hired her for a couple of workshops that I teach from time to time. She’s without a doubt one of my favorite models to photograph. She joined our team recently while we had an incredible location available to us to help create some new portfolio images. I think it worked out quite well. 🙂
