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!

Hotel Boudoir with Jennifer

I’ve shot with beautiful Jenny Mel a couple of times over the last year or so after meeting her at a fitness competition in Halifax early in 2018. We’ve also been fortunate enough to have every one of our shoots published somewhere, which is a rarity, to say the least. You can see the results of our very first session here Portfolio Building with Jenny Mel

I was in Moncton for a work trip a while ago and had some free time so I reached out to Jenny and my friend James to assist. We took over a suite at the Crowne Plaza in Downtown Moncton and the plan was set!

The resulting set was published in Boudoir Inspiration magazine and was one of my favorite portfolio sessions in recent memory.

I hope you enjoy the set.

Portfolio Building with Caroline Joy

It’s been a busy fall and we’ve been pretty non-stop now for months, which is pretty great because it helps this frigid winter pass seemingly much more quickly! LOL!

This session seems like it was forever ago, but it was actually only last August when Caroline and I met for the first time along with Dream Team members Bryana Doyscher (for makeup) and Paul Girvan (to assist) and headed out to Crystal Crescent Beach near Sambro for a portfolio building session that we offer from time to time for new and upcoming models.

Caroline, as I’m sure you will agree, has an awesome glamour look and can rock pretty much any swimwear with her tall and curvy frame. Just what a lot of swimwear designers look for when looking for promo models.

We always try to be creative with these portfolio sessions and try our very best not to provide the same boring images that a lot of photographers will provide. Sometimes the planets align and the “Dream Team” hits one out of the park and we end up getting the set published. Well, this was one of those times. 🙂

The set was picked up by Crush Magazine out of Australia (one of the Vanquish family of magazines that our followers will likely be familiar as we’ve been published in a number of Vanquish magazines) and heated up the January 2019 issue that was released just this week.

Caroline brought along a number of looks and when she donned the sexy red one piece, it screamed Baywatch and was the highlight of the session.

Hope you like the preview!

If you are a new model and are looking to shoot with a professional and internationally published photographer, we do offer, on occasion, discounted portfolio sessions with the right creative team and interesting concept. SO don;t be afraid to reach out to chat about what an investment with us for a portfolio session can do for your book.

Portfolio Building with B

B has been trying to build a portfolio and break into the local modeling scene. B wants to be a lingerie and swimsuit model and although she had shot with a few photographers from the area she felt her portfolio was still lacking. After finding my web site and looking through my portfolio she contacted me to book a session with hopes that we could create something worthy of being published in a magazine. Having had my work published many times, I decided to take on the challenge and see what we could create once we put our heads together. 

The result is available in Vanquish Magazine and was published in August 2016 and you can view the magazine on-line http://www.vanquishmagazine.com/bustybrunettespart2
