I connected with AlphaSiren (FB, Twitter, Instagram) a little while ago mostly because it turned out she was looking for a website to get built. Maybe that’s not all true. I read a few of her articles on HUSH first. I really dug them because they challenge society to think about how we’re living, and what we perceive in our current society.
AlphaSiren is a powerful writer exploring sex and relationships, feminism, and the alt-scene (of Vancouver). She unabashedly puts her money where her mouth is and writes about things she is genuinely interested in; exploring and sharing. I like this kind of writer, a very powerful combination.
After talking with her for a while – and submitting to her tenacious plan to conquer – we began to think of some projects we could work on together. The first one was a quick professional portrait shoot.
We initially planned to shoot in a café. Sunday afternoon they were full, so we headed over to Charles Bar in Gastown, Vancouver and began shooting [and some football]. Honestly, no better way to get into the mood with a glass of wine and large windows.
It was interesting for me to work on this more professional headshot/portrait stuff, as it’s something I’ve not had a lot of experience doing, but very interested in doing. I feel this style is formal but showing little touches of personality. That’s my goal always/anyways as a photographer.
