We’ve had a busy few months shooting with lots of clients and models with a few of the sets being sent off for publication in some of our favorite magazines. This week we are happy to share our first publication in a new magazine by the editors of Vanquish called Crush. (more…)
C had a baby about 10 months prior and she contacted me to shoot some new fitness images to submit to the Inside Fitness Hot and Fit 100 competition and was also prepping for a bikini competition a few weeks ago. If you’ve ever met me, you know I’m not exactly the picture of fitness, so I figured that shooting fitness was going to be as close as I was going to get. LOL!
So we chatted about the look she was going for and the wardrobe she wanted to go with and hit the studio to see what we could create.
She has been working *very* hard to get herself back in shape and we think she’s done an incredible job!
For this shoot, we scouted the old parking structure on Chebucto Rd in Halifax where we could use a parkade as the backdrop while being relatively secluded and without a lot of “witnesses” coming and going during our shoot. It was a perfect spot and since it was under construction by the new owner at the time, the only security cameras we found were near the elevator and entrance to the office section of the building. Perfect. 🙂
I was assisted on this shoot by two good friends, Tim and Rory. Rory was also the owner of the Porsche we used for the shoot.
The images were lit using a couple of speedlights with one in a home made portable soft box to provide some specular highlights on the car while the other was in a pop-up 20″ octabox as a key light. I tried to incorporate the natural ambiance as much as possible as well.
The model, Miss K, was visiting from Toronto and told us on this trip that she loved Nova Scotia and was planning to move to Halifax in the new year. It’s nice to see talented people moving *in* rather than leaving…
Enjoy the images!
