The view from down here

This is my view when I look up from my computer. Maybe I should get outside!

Pantone Credit Card

I want one of these Visa cards featuring Pantone colors from the spring 2011 fashion season. Plus some extra credit would be nice too.

FFWD Fall Fashion

It is always challenging to shoot spring in winter and fall in summer so after posting about the amazing installation, River of Light, this summer, I decided to set the ffwd fall fashion issue against it as a backdrop. I love the way Creatmosphere lights their projects and it made me think of fall and the changing colors of the trees.  Colin Way was so fast on this one as we only had 2 hours between it getting dark and when they cut the power to the installation at Prince's Island Park. Teslin Ward did the make-up at the studio, beforehand along with Phillip Elliot on hair, and we set up a makeshift wardrobe room in the park. Kelsey Sirucek from Mode Models and her boyfriend Jeremy Scnieder were good sports as the weather here in August was terrible. In fact there was a huge thunderstorm (with hail!) right before we left for the location. All in all a fun shoot and it was amazing to see the installation so late at night with no one else around.


You can view the full story on line (we had a page cut!) and pick up your hard copy this week.

Outlooks Magazine shoot

Check out the September cover and fashion story for Outlooks Canada right now. We wanted to portray an anrdogynous feeling and the historic Lougheed House provided a nice foil to the modern styling. Lots of clothes from Paul Hardy and some key pieces from Holt Renfrew, Primitive, Leo, and Gravity Pope, with jewelry from Rubaiyat.  i Model Management models Ryan and Stella did a great job, and Olga Olunov's make-up made them fit perfectly with the androgynous look. Thanks to Gerard Yunker for shooting it and Len Mastaler from Outlooks for asking me to do it! The issue is available for free at many magazine and coffee shops nationally, or you can purchase it online here.

Here are a few shots for you. He is wearing almost all ladies clothes!
