Happy New Year 2015

It seems these are going to be the last photos I can show this year. Here are some shots from a fashion test shoot I did a while ago. It was so much fun to edit all in black and white this time. It's a different kind of joy to edit, with your focus mainly being on controlling the brightness, darkness and sharpness.
This coming year, I hope to continue realizing new aspects of photography in order to deepen my style.
Hope you all have a great start to the year 2015!

Make up contest

A while ago, we collaborated with a talented MUA, Paula Lanzador, for her entry for a MUA contest. We ended up doing 4 different make up looks. Each one was a totally different theme and it was a pleasure to see such a variety in creativity.
I want to improve my retouching skills way more, but I need to accept the level that I am at right now.
Big thanks to the model, Isla Hughes and the stylist, Michelle Davis.
Hope you can enjoy the images from our shoot.
Please check out the final 4 images in my gallery page.

Stanley Park

The other day, we had a location shoot in Stanley Park. I was fighting with lots of insects during photoshoot....haha.

We had a great opportunity to work with Jordanna Leah, a local fashion designer. Thanks to Isla Hughes, the model (John Casablancas International) and our great styling team of Tracey Le, the MUA, Katie Webster, the hair stylist, and Michelle Davis, the wardrobe stylist.

Two New Editorials

We have done 2 fashion editorial photoshoots recently. Thanks to everybody for collaborating in these photoshoots. I really love the fact that fashion photography is a creation from many artists who have different specialities. I can respect everybody's talent and that reminds me of how much I love this creative environment :)
Please check out more photos on my fashion gallery page.

Garden

Today we had a photoshoot with Claudia Bakehouse (John Casablancas International)

It was supposed to raining today so we decided to make an impromptu studio set undercover the balcony in my garden for this photoshoot. Sometimes I can feel the joy of my imagination coming together well in a shoot, and today felt like that kind of day for me. I especially loved the sophistication in Claudia's hands in the photos. I highly recommend other photographers to work with her.

A big thanks to our HMUA Toby Lee for collaborating with us today for the first time, and as always, I appreciate my wardrobe stylist Michelle Davis.
