The Bohemian Surfer AmyLynn Emm

Posted on 9th July 2013 in fashion

My recent excursion found me heading to Kelowna where I managed to meet up with the very professional AmyLynn Emm (FB)and work out some magic. Pretty sure we got that good. It was really quite fun doing this shoot, except that it was probably 35 deg C out there. I felt only a little bit cruel for making her put on long pants, and a big warm winter wool sweater… or two. By the end of it, we were both pretty drained from being in the sun so long.

AmyLynn is a Burlesque dancer in Kelowna with the Neon Kitten Cabaret, and dances under the name Pixie L’Amour. She also does GoGo dancing with VIBErant GoGos.

Our words of inspiration were 70s LA bohemian surfer girl. AmyLynn said she dresses like this all the time, so she had a tonne of stuff to pick from that worked perfect. It’s always so enjoyable for me, as the photographer, when a model is as interested as I am about the style of the shoot, and feels it deep down inside.. Their spirit animal instincts if you will… In fact, I like it so much, I usually try and cater my ideas to fit with what I feel the model’s style is.

I shot the whole thing with natural light – blaring hot scortching sun – and my trusty 50mm f1.8 attached to my T1i.
