Fashion Modeling Photography

We had a fashion studio photoshoot with Ana not too long ago (@Chantale Nadeau/ NIWA models).
This time I used a silver reflective board to add visual interest to the background. I layered the graphics furthermore by putting a simple vivid red seamless paper on the floor, allowing the silver board to pick up a colourful reflection.

It’s always a bit of a challenge to create an exciting studio environment, but hopefully I can keep experimenting. Here is one of the images from the session shot using a film camera :)

I was thinking about changing the way I depict shadows lately. With that intention in mind, I set up a session in attempt to try out a new method in the studio.
I built up the lighting from a low key standpoint so that afterwards in post process, the shadow information remained in the mid tone range, making it possible to show plenty of details.

Here are my favourite shots from the session. Thank you as always to my awesome team mates :)

Here’s a shot from a simple fashion shoot in my studio where we aimed for 5 outfits in total. I decided to use my medium format film camera for this session. It is still very challenging to scan film in my house since the process of preserving the stunning colour you get from film is a rather delicate one. I definitely need to keep up my exploration of new methods!

The other day we did a minimally styled fashion editorial in my studio.
I tried not to light the subject directly this time in hopes of creating a less stimulating look. The idea was to pair this low key lighting with a minimalist, organic vibe. I’ve attached some of my favourite shots from the session below.

Much appreciation to my awesome team for making things happen :)

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).

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.

I would like to share a recent beauty story where we played around with the theme of "Galaxy".  We opted for airy and spacey elements such as fluffy hair and subtle, but pigmented shimmer. 

Please visit my gallery to view the rest from the story!
