Tyna and the Butterflies

Posted on 13th March 2017 in lifestyle, wandering

I like those days where we just get in the car and go. Where you plan a bit, with maybe some water and fresh batteries and destination, but the rest is serendipity.

Tyna Kottová (IG) and I picked the Butterfly Gardens just north of Victoria, BC.

Everybody is different, some of us plan for everything – my mom has always been notorious for having the biggest basket of toys heading to the beach, while others let plans go with the wind and hang on for the ride. I’m definitely of the former, though I like to tell myself I only plan the framework, the skeletal of what’s to come.

Can you guess what type Tyna is?

Blonde in Black | Analissa Longoria

Posted on 3rd May 2016 in lifestyle, portraits & headshots

Analissa Longoria is a fellow photographer who’ve I’ve been lucky enough to call my friend. She has a unique eye that’s studied far more then I have of the nuances and styles of some of the legends. I admire her vision and respect her own style that is emerging from her exploration.

And I managed to convince her to sit in front of my lens! (consider this quite the feat)

I was blown away by the emotion she gave me, such simple and elegant body posture that spoke so much to me. Her fearless spirit jumped right in.

All shots were done with natural lighting.

Dreaming with Lu Lee

Posted on 12th March 2015 in fashion, lifestyle, risque

In a Gaze (day 1378)

Slip sideways with a fuzzy dream
And carry those loose blossoms
That follow your footsteps
With a delicate clutch,
Simply to answer questions
From far away strangers
With elegant movement,
Shared back in a gaze.


 

As always, Lu Lee (fb, archives) has made simple delight as elegant as a dream.

This shoot was done in the alleys of EastVan. Alleys in any downtown area are a little interesting to shoot in; it doesn’t really offer the same clean style one gets from shooting in a studio with a seamless, but I kind of like things being a little rough around the edges. However, shooting in an alley in a business district during working hours, it’s funny how many businesses really do use their alleys and loading docks. Who’d a thought?

I liked finding that Porsche sitting in the parking lot, conveniently.

Casually, Aurora

Posted on 16th February 2015 in lifestyle, risque

When Aurora (IMDB) and I started planning for this shoot, I said I wanted to do something casual, something where she was just being in her natural element (it’s been my goal to capture souls as of late). She responded: “I don’t know what my natural is anymore.”

Aurora is an actress, a model, a multi-talented woman who I think shared a bit of her soul with me.

Your call though, do you agree?

Cross Ring | Kyrian Paige

Posted on 5th November 2014 in lifestyle

One of the most frustrating things about living and being a coastal based (Vancouver) location photographer is that it rains quite a bit. I frequently get jealous of fellow photographers who have mint studios or houses setup for indoor shoots because I just don’t have that. Work in progress I guess.

So went it with Kyrian Paige (Instagram, FB). I love being blown away by indoor location shoots with giant windows with a tonne of ambient lighting and beautiful decorations.

Kyrian has an elegance to her, a casual and cool badass vibe that helps her float through her work to make some magic. It was a quick shoot, but I had fun.

Also, that cross ring.
