Early misty morning with Ziicka

A few days ago me and my favorite MUA/model/producer/creative director/blue haired friend Ziicka got up bright and early to shoot in the morning fog. I had a lighting setup I wanted to try out and Zii is just always game to help out in front of or behind the camera so we loaded up and went down by the water front to catch the morning mist and fall colors.

Turns out the fog wasn’t going to stick around for us but we made the best of it and got some nice shots in just a few minutes.

Here are a couple shots from the day and a behind the scenes look at the lights.

Finally updating some of my current photography work.

Fire red in the wind.

Again it has been a long time between posts on here. I have been busy, what can I say. But the good news is now I have some content to show off. I just added a small gallery of photos from a practice session with Ziicka at the Glass City space in EVF studio called Blue with Ziicka. It was a fun little testing session to try out some new lighting ideas I had and Zii wanted to try out not having eyebrows. OK. But they turned out pretty cool and I have had great feedback on them from the few people that have seen them. Check that gallery out here.

Next I shot an evening with clothing designer Harrison Oswald modeling his own creations and Ziicka doing makeup and styling. Check that set out here.

We had a great time and finished up so quick we had time to get Zii in front of the camera again to model some Titans Eve tee shirts. Check that set out here.

And finally for today I am posting up a few shots from a shoot I did for hair stylist Lucy Lopez. We were working with a theme of blazing orange and red hair on three beautiful models, Marmar, Liz and Kayla. Again it was fun times had by all and I really enjoyed getting to play with light to showcase the amazing hair styling of Lucy. That gallery can be viewed here.

That’s it for now, I have a bunch of video work coming up in the near future so look out for a big post of links to music videos soon.

Some Vice is Nice.

I never really hyped this gallery showing at the time because the subject matter and photography style is a bit outside of my target demographic (if you know what I mean) But it was well received and got a fair bit of attention around the Vancouver alt scene. So I figured it’s worth a post.

A few months ago the Glass City Collective, a non profit artist collective that I am an artist in residence with was asked to take part in the 16 Deadly Sins Fetish and Erotic Art Show at The FALL Tattooing & Artists Gallery. So instead of having a single artist represent the collective we did a group co-operative shoot. 5 photographers, 4 models, 3 stylists and a designer all working together in the East Village Factory studios. We had a great time and shot late into the night.

After all was done we had “Some Vice is Nice” a series of 9 custom printed and framed photographs for the show.
