Beauty Editorial Photography

I recently shot a beauty editorial story in my studio where I tested out my new toy (645 medium format film camera). The camera has auto focus and my favourite type of blur, plus the 16 images per each 120 roll is not so bad either ;) That’s pretty much the main reason I wanted to try it out.
The camera operation was smooth without any troubleshooting, so for now, I guess I will keep it!

Here’s one of the images from the session.

Thank you to everyone involved for making this one happen / kind & modest Melanie Jane (Model), and my talented teammates Windy Chiu (HMUA) and Michelle Davis (Stylist).

My teammates and I met up for another studio session the other day.
This time around, I set up the lighting to emphasize the shadows. All the while I keep things feeling natural with certain flatness I incorporated as opposed to making it punchy and full of contrast (which would give it that “studio look”).
We worked with Elena from Elmer Olsen Models.
She was very smart and super quick to pick up on our our concept, making my job that day fairly easy! I wish her nothing but the best for an awesome modelling career and am hoping she gets lots of great opportunities in the near future.


Here’s one of my favourites from the shoot :)

Before it gets too cold, we have to take advantage of shooting outside. Our latest editorial was no exception.
Although the whether was cloudy and overcast, it was still bright enough for us to shoot under the right exposure.
Here’s my favourite shot from the day of. As per the editing time, I decided to go for a black & white treatment, focusing on showing as much tonality as possible.

Thank you as always to my great teammates for your time and effort :)

A while ago, we set up a quick session in my studio.
This time I incorporated a subtle red gel from the left side, which added an accent to both the background and the subject. 
Even though it's a rather subtle effect, it still makes a difference in helping everything feel put together, as well as adding some visual interest.

Here's a favourite shot from the shoot.

Much appreciation to my wonderful team this time! ;)

I would like to share a studio session I shot recently in which I used colour gels. The colour palette of the shoot was blue and yellow. We showcased these tones both in the clothing, lighting, and props to create consistency.

Here's a favourite shot from the session!

Thank you as always to my amazing teammates:

We recently did a fashion editorial shoot that was a mixture of indoors and outdoors on location.
In attempt to take an advantage of the dwindling summer weather, we shot a couple of the looks using natural light.
It was great to get such a pleasing warm tone organically from the sun.
Here's a favourite shot taken at the parking lot near my studio.

Thanks as always to my wonderful team :)

Once in a while, I have an opportunity to work with a very creative model. This time I worked with Melissa (@Chantale Nadeau / Ciotti Models). I could feel her artistic sense by her posing and her expressions. She consistently brought a uniqueness throughout the session—I couldn't tell when to stop shooting! Nevertheless, I very much enjoy seeing other people's creativity unfold, and I'm looking forward to when I can collaborate with Melissa again in the future.

Thank you so much to my awesome teammates for this lovely story:

We recently had a session with Aicha (Elite Toronto) who was a very intelligent, and professional girl to work with. She was quick in grasping our concept immediately; I hope she has plenty of success in her career!

This time I set up the lighting a bit more low key in order to create a subtle hazy feeling.
I hope to deepen my experiments with underexposed portraits in the future.

Thank you as always to my awesome teammates!

We recently shot a beauty story themed "nude on nude". We used a brown monotone scheme as our color palette and tried to create a calm and mellow feeling.
I shot the following on 35mm lens.

Thanks as always for my great team mates :)

The other day I had a photoshoot with Jo Creet (Chantale Nadeau models). We shot 4 looks in my studio and then moved onto the location for another 3 looks. There were lots of interesting discarded material surrounding the area to work with such as broken glass, rocks, bricks, and scrap pieces of wood. There was definite potential to even shoot another story there sometime in the future. 


Here's an image taken on location shot with film.
Thanks again to my awesome teammates for your time and hard work!
