Chevron | Lola Frost

Posted on 5th May 2014 in fashion, risque

Hands down, Lola Frost (fb, twitter, tumblr, instagram) has been the biggest nurturer of my growth both as a human and an artist. Helping me dig into my own skin to be more comfortable and brave with my expression. [see most of our work together here]

Nudity is a big part of this, being such a controversial topic. It’s hard to believe that 60 years ago there were patrol officers at the beach making sure women didn’t have too much upper thigh showing. Today, everywhere we look there is sex selling something. And if it’s not selling something, it’s being flaunted by brave vixens and hermanos pushing the boundaries. I think for most of us, we’re trying to understand what the difference between sexuality, expression, intimacy, and allure is. As we become accustomed to seeing nudity, we start to wonder what excites us; we begin to explore our own definitions.

To steal the time tested axiom: it’s not quantity, it’s quality.

This shoot was built around the chevron tights, and beautiful Vancouver alley ways. Jewelery used in the shoot is from Miriam of Piyan Designs.

Brick Walls and Cobblestones with Krystena McCrudden

Posted on 4th August 2012 in fashion

This shoot was the first time I’ve connected with a model from Model Mayhem. What seems to happen is last minute cancellations… I must stop myself from ranting here, go to my twitter feed if you want to hear my rants!

So, Krystena McCrudden (Model Mayhem & Facebook) met me in a town in Southern Germany called Heidelberg, one of the few places that wasn’t completely bombed and destroyed in WWII because the Americans decided it would be a nice place to use as their military base [so the rumors go]. I got there early, as I had skipped out on work due to a fun birthday party the night before.. and the train was leaving…

So, I had time to walk around and find the spots that fit my fancy. I really cannot stress how much this helps me when I’m doing a photoshoot. It’s just a part of preparation that ensures you get the shots you’re hoping for. Otherwise, you’re walking in blind.

I shot the whole thing with my trusty T1i, and the 50mm 1.8 on the front. Nothing more.

Krystena is a pro. She came prepared with a dozen outfits, wasn’t scared to flaunt her stuff, and yes, almost everybody that walked by had their jaws dropped, men and women, boys and girls alike.

We met by the old bridge, and roamed from there..
