Ask My Boyfriend | Georsha Gal

Posted on 5th October 2014 in fashion, risque

Georsha (fb, instagram, tumblr) is on it. When I showed up she had coffee and cookies for me. Take notes kids, that’s how you do it.

She’s been so kind and patient with these images. I’ve been on the move and migrating myself and all things I come with so there’s been a bit of a bottleneck of productions.

Georsha came to Vancouver from Argentina where she was producing all kinds of events for the arts, from comedies to stripteases. Coming to a new city and trying to establish yourself once again is no doubt a frustrating endeavor, but I can guarantee that this woman will not stop.

Perhaps you’ve already seen her on a stage near you?!

It’s always a challenge for me to work inside a house with my 50mm. As you can imagine, such a lens requires me to stand back from the object quite a ways. I always find myself straddling tables or plastering myself up against a wall! Or… shooting from the balcony to the bedroom window. I like it.

Red, White and Blue | August Wiled

Posted on 14th August 2014 in fashion, risque

August Wiled (FB, Twitter, Instagram) and I have been friends for a while, so it was delightful to get together for another creative project and talk and talk and talk (you may remember her from our shoot in the country from back in 2012). Projects like these for me typically occur over several months of planning, shooting ideas off one another, and lots and lots of excitement. It’s magical when it all comes together. Oh, and that striped suit she’s wearing? She sewed that herself.

For this shoot we had planned to do it at an abandoned grandstand but when we arrived at the location (Burnaby Lake) we found that there was some kind of summer camp going on with all sorts of kids and parents bustling about the boats and kayaks and lounging in sun chairs… The quick thinkers we are, we improvised.

Oh, and this has got to be one of the hottest days I’ve ever photographed on. Big up to August for holding it down like the professional she is.

A Summer Fling | Nicky Ninedoors

Posted on 24th July 2014 in risque

Last drops of day amplified
By a sweet fringe of gold
Hovered dangerously close
To skin so tempered pale
Of a midsummer nymph.
Rings of fire shrieked;
Lost breath halted thought
While the dancer tiptoed about
Like a midnight rehearsal.

~

Have you ever heard Nicky Ninedoors sing?

The last drops of daylight on this beautiful day were soaked up by Nicky who so elegantly danced around a hidden meadow at Stanley Park in Vancouver for my lens.

Thus continues my fascination with nymphs.

Drag my Heart | Ann Narky

Posted on 17th July 2014 in fashion, portraits & headshots, risque

Ann Narky is a very foxy lady with a go big or go home attitude. When I pulled up to location she was standing outside her car fully done up and ready to rock and roll as homeless bottle collectors pushed their fully loaded shopping carts on by. She had the props, the outfits, refreshments, the hair, and the attitude ready. A dream to work with.

We did the shoot down in the warehouse district of East Van, just south of Terminal and east of Main.

As usual, my trusty Canon T1i and 50mm 1.8 was used.

Chevron | Lola Frost

Posted on 5th May 2014 in fashion, risque

Hands down, Lola Frost (fb, twitter, tumblr, instagram) has been the biggest nurturer of my growth both as a human and an artist. Helping me dig into my own skin to be more comfortable and brave with my expression. [see most of our work together here]

Nudity is a big part of this, being such a controversial topic. It’s hard to believe that 60 years ago there were patrol officers at the beach making sure women didn’t have too much upper thigh showing. Today, everywhere we look there is sex selling something. And if it’s not selling something, it’s being flaunted by brave vixens and hermanos pushing the boundaries. I think for most of us, we’re trying to understand what the difference between sexuality, expression, intimacy, and allure is. As we become accustomed to seeing nudity, we start to wonder what excites us; we begin to explore our own definitions.

To steal the time tested axiom: it’s not quantity, it’s quality.

This shoot was built around the chevron tights, and beautiful Vancouver alley ways. Jewelery used in the shoot is from Miriam of Piyan Designs.
