Luxury Handbag Photoshoot Behind The Scenes

This is a luxury handbag photoshoot we did a few months ago with a model named Taylor Mccaroll who is an international model and works all around the world right now.
The shoot was styled by Vanessa @pricelessvices with her contact details listed below. I have worked with Vanessa lots of times and she does wonderful work.

The location was all shot in studio using a white cove as the backdrop and using Broncolor lighting and modifiers.

The main modifier on the shoot was the Broncolor Para 133 then I did use a small octabox to add some fill when it was needed. I wanted to create quite a lot of shadow on floor of the cove and also on the model at times so I used the Para in a harder light setting to help make that happen. Taylor has a lot of dance experience so she moves and flows really well making it a lot easier to create the shapes I was envisioning in my mind.
Dena was in charge of hair and makeup with her instagram linked below. She works a lot of varied work including movies and fashion so I recommend her if you need and artist.

Then myself on the lighting, photography and retouching which was all taken care of in Capture One and Photoshop.

I wanted to say a big thank you to @luxedujour for supplying the luxury handbag s which included some beautiful pieces from Dior and Chane for the shoot and to Maison Simons in Calgary for supplying the clothing.
Video was captured and edited by Simon @alignedfilm

Male Model Editorial Photoshoot BTS

Male model fashion editorial photoshoot Behind the scenes

I haven’t posted much content containing male fashion models so I thought I would switch it up a little and add some to my youtube channel and this blog.
The shoot in the video shown was commissioned by a fashion magazine that was looking for “colorful” imagery and male models.
There wasn’t much of brief on the content and it was a really short timeline of only having a couple of days to organize, setup, shoot and deliver the images to the magazine.

Nike Commercial Project Photoshoot using Broncolor Para 133 Behind the Scenes

In this photoshoot we worked in Calgary with fashion model Geneve Miller. We had an original goal of shooting Geneve just in fashion images but after learning that she had a background in figure skating we decided she would be perfect for a Nike sportswear commercial photography project we were working on. So we shot these images in the Nike sportswear before she got hair and makeup done for some Alexander McQueen and Kate Hewko pieces.Read More
