She’s Pink | Tallulah Lee

Posted on 30th September 2015 in fashion, lifestyle

Tallulah Lee (fb, instagram, archives), the artist formerly known as Lu Lee. East Van at heart, Miss Lee always has a certain casual flair to her that I quite enjoy capturing, this time it was pink, obviously. You can’t walk down a street lookin’ like Tallulah – having a mane of flowy pink hair – and expect a crowd not to gather.

I bet she has a motorcycle.

East Van Candy Gangster | Nite Mare

Posted on 20th June 2015 in fashion, lifestyle

Nite Mare (fb, instagram, previous posts) is a dancer in the local burlesque troop The Lost Girls (previous posts, fb), regularly causing crowds to lose their minds.

I thought about laying down some sick gangster southcentral LA lyrics as an intro to this photoshoot, but decided that, after all, I am not a gangster. SO, you get that glorious song from CeCile (soundcloud player below playing it).

This shoot was done in the projects of East Vancouver, and yes, it was rather convenient that the chain link fence AND the candy store matched perfectly with her hair (including bow), dress, rainbow unikorn shorts, purse, and bandana.

Miss Jilleena is a Cowgirl

Posted on 15th July 2013 in fashion

On the morning of this shoot, I was set to drive the 2hrs it took to get to the location. I had my bags around my shoulder and as I was about to step out of the door, I double checked to make sure I had my car keys with me.

No dice.

It took me two and a half hours to find those car keys. Two hours which included, but not limited to: a new BCAA membership, one BCAA operator breaking into my car, dismantling the couch, refolding a few loads of laundry, numerous phone calls, and one (now wrecked) old clothes hanger.

All that done, I found the keys and jumped on the road. What was no doubt frustrating for Jilleena was that almost the entire drive out there, I had no cell reception! Poor Jilleena thinking I wasn’t coming and then I was…

Alas, I arrived in Lone Butte, BC, of all places, and pulled off the shoot with beautiful weather, and an even more beautiful model. The location was beyond expectations: on a Guest Ranch kind of in the middle of nowhere.

I met Jilleena Askewe on Model Mayhem, and we had been planning a shoot for a while. Every time it might have worked, one of us wasn’t around! But, finally we connected and it… well, what do you think?
