Sufey (fb, twitter, instagram) is an extraordinary woman; smart, beautiful, driven, and a yogini. She’s been heavily involved in the Prince George yoga scene for the past year since she acquired her yoga instructor certification, and has begun to warm the cold north one smile at a time.
We’ve been working on concepts for a shoot for a while, trying to find something that aligned with her vision and direction as well as my aesthetic. We came up with the idea to compare her in various yoga positions with mother nature; an exposé showcasing how mother nature shows us and teaches us.
I had a location picked out to do the shoot, but when the time to do the shoot came I realized I had made a grave error in that the shade of the mountain was now where I wanted to shoot! This is obviously no good, the light was amazing… So, we headed to go to another location of Sufey’s suggestion. To get there, we had to drive by the PGX grounds. These grounds I walk regularly and have envisioned many shoots there in doing so… needless to say we stopped. It’s kind of funny how things like that just sort themselves out.
I shot the whole thing with natural light, my trusty 50 mm 1.8f, and my Canon T1i.
