Every time Audrey Hipturn (fb, instagram) and I brainstorm a shoot, it’s a dream. She’s got creative ideas and great suggestions and does the extra little bit to make the shoot magic. It’s always such a pleasure to work with her, and it makes me a bit sad that her and her partner have moved to the UK to pursue studies at school. Smart woman.
I had a friend of a friend’s apartment for a few days that was nearly empty and all white, and was able to jam pack it with humans to photograph for a few days, Audrey being one of them. Living on the island these days, it’s like a magical mystery tour for me when I book shoots in Vancouver. Late night conversations, shooting till I’m exhausted, and I usually make my way to Foundation for some delicious vegan food to loud old school rap – all a big blur of commotion.
Audrey had an idea to shoot with nachos, which I was totally on board for, but I always like to plan shoots with a few different styles to maximize the amount of photographs that I can use without it feeling like too much of the same person in the same clothes. Ah hah! His tricks.
