Finally got together with local fashion designer Michele Beaudoin to do some fashion images using her designs. I’ve seen a lot of great dresses done by her so I thought I would give it a shot with some local models…
It is a really long time to wait for pictures you did back in December, but it was for a submission and our work paid off as it recently got published in Elegant Magazine. I just wanted to show off the work as I wait for tear sheets. I also want to thank the uber talented team that help me put this all together.

Here are the final edits from a recent fashion shoot I did with Chineye Ifedi (MUA), Erica Iffil (wardrobe), Nesserine Haidar (hair), and Lareinaa Aloysious (model). This is a very different look from the other two series. I also added another image from the first series as well. Please let me know what you think?
Here is a teaser from a recent fashion shoot I did with Chineye Ifedi (MUA), Erica Iffil (wardrobe), Nesserine Haidar (hair), and Lareinaa Aloysious (model). I have been brainstorming concepts with Chineye all month, so we have lots of great stuff to come for the summer, but this is this first shoot we worked together on. We probably should have worked together first before brainstorming on a million projects, but artists are not the most logical. Regardless, everything worked out and as team we all worked well together. I can't wait to keep editing the rest of the images from the shoot. Thanks ladies for a fun time.
I did some work for Allison to update her model portfolio. She came with her mother, who was really great in helping out as (make-up, hair stylist and art director). I have photographed Allison before for a shoot fashion shoot with Hanzel Fashion and it has been a lot of fun both times cause we were collaborating and sharing ideas and just trying to make great pictures together. Here is one of her favourites and the last one is one of mine.
Last Saturday was my second time working with Jana and Emilia Fashion studio on a fashion shoot in Ottawa. This time it was a beautiful all red collection they are getting ready for Ottawa fashion week. Well, mostly red....you can see more of their collections here: www.janahanzel.com & www.emiliafashiondesign.ca. Also, thanks to the models Kathy and Allison for making my job easy. This was my first shoot using the D800 as well; the files are so big I had to get new ram but the resolution is amazing.
Last Sunday, at Maplelawn Historic Garden, I worked with Fashion Designers Jana Hanzel and Emilia Torabi on a fashion shoot in Ottawa with several pieces they put together. I really had a fun time because I don't really get a chance to do shoots like this and I must say I really enjoyed it. We worked with models Natalie Osika and Gillian Cochrane from Angie's Model & Talent, and I must say it makes things very easy working with great models who know what they are doing. Also, my post processing was way easier ; thanks make up artist, Ariana Assadi. Finally, I want to give my biggest thanks to a friend I have not seen for 10 years, Lyndsey Mills. She came out and helped me with the shoot and even ended up being a light stand near the end.
Last week I met up with Cathy from Tangente Clothing based here in Ottawa to do my first fashion photoshoot. Cathy decided to use the atrium at the Bank of Canada to showcase her Spring/Summer collecton for 2011. Also, thanks to Lydia, our model who filled in for us last minute. Here are some of my favourites.
