Ottawa is full of talent. We have great models, MUAs, stylists, and Chris Banfalvi, a crazy talented artist that makes swords, crowns, chariots and other pieces of work made from metal. His work is currently showcased at the Orange Art Gallery should you want to check out the exhibit. This was a concept shoot for something bigger on the works from our model Mylee Batista and her mom, Ashley. Chinenye (MUA) and myself will both be part of this project with what seems to be a large list of other talented artists. I can't wait for all this to get started. Thanks to my assistant for this shoot Steven Lian to make these images possible. He is a talented photographer himself.
Today was a beautiful afternoon. It is a rare day like today, that temporarily tricks your mind into thinking that living in a city with this type of climate, is a good idea. Since we were blessed with such a beautiful day, it would have been a waste if we weren't outside enjoying it in some fashion. For me, today involved an engagement photo session with Stacy, Terry and Corona (Australian Shepard Mix...I think). I always get a bit tense meeting new people because of my awkward social skills, but luckily I married Heidi and she makes that whole process easy. It's not like I am not social, but I tend to build up all this anxiety for absolutely no reason. Regardless, even though Heidi is just carrying a bag, she in fact is doing a lot more. Originally we were going to head to Andrew Hayden Park, but today our adventure brought us to Hog's back falls. For some reason, I had never really been here to take photographs. I am glad we did because this place is beautiful; credit goes to Stacy and Terry for choosing this location. I had a really amazing time, and got some great photographs in the process. The key to great photographs are great subjects who are willing to have a little fun and get a little silly. Thanks Stacy and Terry for accepting every idea I had and sorry you got wet and cold in the process. In the end I think it was worth it, here are some of my favourites...
This passed Sunday, I spent a full day participating in this commercial for Battle Reels. It was a long day but it was pretty fun I must say to be an "actor" for a day. Anyhow, the video debuts this Friday at the Digi60 Seconds Spring Screening. When I wasn't infront of the camera, I managed to document a few shots from the day, and the camera got passed around and even used as a prop...so I got some pretty interesting photos. Anyhow here were some of my favourites out of that camera that day. For more photos check out my Facebook Page.
