Photo Shoot

June 28, 2010

I’m very excited to be planning and styling my first independant photo shoot. I’m doing it for my portfolio, and one of my teachers is nice enough to count it as a project for his class.

I’m using Kensie Girl clothing, and the idea behind the shoot is the perfect summer outfit. In my head I can imagine a girl, wandering around in a cute little dress and heels during her summer vacation simply enjoying life. I want to do this photo shoot down by the river because there is a nice little board walk and it will feel like we are out of the city.

These pictures are where I draw my inspiration from, and I hope my end pictures turn out the way they are planned in my head!

Look forward to the final photo shoot images soon, I plan on doing it this saturday, but now it’s weather dependant!

Have a good week 🙂


Cheap Labor

March 22, 2010

One of my courses in school is a fashion show production class. It is our task to produce a fashion show for our fashion design students at the end of the semester.

Things have been a bit shaky in the planning stages, however we are working with what we have. So lack of time + creativity = an impromptu photo shoot with mannequins in a back alley to make some awesome posters to promote the show!

We took the gals out last week during a nice stretch of weather and banged out some great shots. The final posters are still being tweaked, so until then here are some behind the scene’s shots I took on my camera:

this is what you do when your set is a back alley

contemplating life, and praying the birds don’t land on her

flexible models are always a plus when we only have one small car for transport

More details about the show are to come, we are looking at some great locations but still need to narrow it down.

P.S. my school is having an open house tomorrow! feel free to drop by any time between 10am and 7pm. Also, the Beat will be there from 3pm-7pm.

LaSalle is located on the second floor of the Pender building on Hornby & Pender  down town.


Nicole Miller tie shoot

February 25, 2010

Just a quick post right now, as the Women’s gold medal hockey game is starting, of my finnished catalouge add for my fashion styling class.

We were provided with the tie and had to style our shoot around it with the theme of spring/summer formal wear. This is my end result, I actually had to shoot the model (my friend Stef In Motion’s boyfriend) inside because on the day of our shoot it was raining, and then take a picture of the stiares I like and photo shop it together.

I’m pleased with the results, considering we had to shoot inside. I also learned that shopping for men’s suits is quite difficult!!!!
