3 models and 3 lighting setups in a 20 square foot space.

I had a fun challenge the other day shooting some fun creative portraits with my GC team and some awesome models.

We had a free night in our calendar and decided to get together to shoot some no pressure practice shots with three new models that needed some practice. To keep it casual we decided to shoot in Ziicka’s place, which is a tiny, basement suite with 6′ ceilings and hardly enough space for 2 people. So we decided to stuff three models, Ziicka doing makeup and styling, Jessica Holloway doing hair and myself with all my lighting and camera gear into that little space.

We ended up have a great time and shooting late into the night only stopping to eat some delicious Sal e Lemon tacos.

 

Here are a few of my favorites from the night.

Giving in to BaDD HaBBiTs

I had a great shoot a couple weeks back collaborating with Glass City wonder girl Ziicka, and the awesome local band The BaDD HaBBiTs. It was just a quick run and gun shoot in an east Van alley to create some new images for the band and to make some new friends. We had a blast goofing around and making damn good use of available colors and textures within one city block of alley.

Zii took care of the creative direction and styling while I concentrated on squeezing every ounce of light out of my poor little speed lights. Fighting daylight aint easy with small light sources and big modifiers covering a whole band.

So this is another bit of older work that I am finally posting up. It has been floating around on Facebook for a while but hasn’t really had a proper post. Ziicka from Glass City Collective was the master mind of this shoot and she assembled  the cast and crew as well as all the logistics for the shoot, her and the rest of the crew at Glass City are a great one stop solution for producing a shoot of any size both still and video.
