Before I got into family portraiture/headshots, I’ve photographed a few aspiring models. School’s now out, for winter break, and I thought I’d try a couple more ‘fashion-y’ photoshoots! Introducing David! He’s an aspiring model/actor who attends the Vancouver Film School. So I thought it’d be pretty awesome to do some more avant-garde-esque photos. We shot in Gastown in Vancouver, which provided lots of interesting backdrops. Oh, and a couple interesting characters… Haha, I guess that’s what you get for shooting in alleys! 🙂
We found some corrugated metal, and thought we should start out there!
Can I just point out his awesome shoes?
Some neat bars in front of a window…
Hurrah for cheap lace trimmings/notions- allowing us to have some fun with it…
I love brick walls, and doorways!
Some feathers were added into the mix of fun!
I really like this one 🙂 🙂
Hello, catchlights! It’s actually just the sky!
Okay, onto my favourite(S) from the shoot. We went up to the roof of a parkade. Can I just mention again how much I LOVE cloudy days? It’s like a giant softbox. And I’m not limited to shooting in the shade. The light is just so soft and perfect. (Only minor downside is that I can’t get any flare…)
The flower belongs to me! I clipped it onto my headband, but realized that it’d make for a pretty awesome prop 🙂 [Please marvel at my superb creative skills…]
This next photo is my favourite!!! Doesn’t the brick chimney remind you of Europe?? And the pigeons flying in the background!! <3
Some people hate vignettes, but I love them! Especially in photos like this one:
It was SO much fun working with you, David! Thanks for rocking some amazing outfits (and those sweet shoes). And I’m super grateful that it didn’t rain… I’m pretty sure the last 40123092834 sessions I’ve had were all done in the rain, so it’s kind of nice to have a change of pace! And since I’m off for 2 more weeks-ish, I’m hoping to shoot a lot more! (In the process of sorting everything out, but I am EXCITED!!!)
