Not long ago I did a shoot with photographer Kim Akrigg , who I have worked with a few times before. She recently relocated to Toronto, and it was great getting to do one final shoot before she moved.
Here are the end results of our collaboration, the model is Darian from Key Model Management, and it was published in SugarKiss Magazine.
I know I have more then neglected this blog and my readers for the past few months! I have been busy as a bee, building contacts, building my portfolio, building my website etc.
I will try to post more. I just thought I would pop in and show you some wonderful photos from a recent photo shoot I did with Ben Von Wong of Montreal and Kelsey Harker who i have worked with before and did a lovely review on earlier in the year.
Without further ado here they are. Two Looks! The hair was done by wonderful hairstylist Rhi Yee. It was a quite boring wig which she turned into a geometrical masterpiece. The blocked out eyebrows was actually the first look. I added the eyebrows back in after.
I promise to do a review sometime in the next few days.
I finally got some photos back from my huge giant amazing photoshoot! I know you all want to see them so without further ado here is miquette and sarah and some natural beauty makeup, + a smokey eye + some behind the scenes
This was all done in the kitchen in the basement suite at my moms house!
I have been in school a month and quite obviously havent been keeping up with my blog. So sorry readers!
A quick recap brings : I have been in school at John Casablancas for awhile now! I have completed my first exam, though havent gotten the marks back from it. Learned about makeup and the appropriate way to talk, and be around clients. Learned more about skin then I ever wanted to know! Learned about eye shapes, face shapes, contouring, and what is what.
I have also done my very first photoshoot!
I was extremely lucky to work with my friend Kim Akrigg and model Tara from lexington models. My first photoshoot was on an agency represented model with one of the most talented photographers I know! I have allready started talking with a few other photographers in the area about shooting, and these pictures are allready starting to really get me in the door.
Without further ado I bring you: Tara and her butterflies
I’m impressed by talent and art every day of my life. I’m extra lucky to live in a city where if you throw something you will hit 10 someones who are great artists. But it’s not everyday you find someone as talented and as amazing as the people I am about to discuss.
There is a make up artist in this city whose work has impressed me so much, I find myself spending hours studying it. I’ve sung my praises to the world and of course talked to her about working together several times (it will happen if I ever get my schedule in order *Crosses Fingers*) Dina Koop is the make up artist I am raving about, her passion for her work shines out of every face she touches and every photoshoot she does.
What is a great make up artist without a talented photographer to collaborate with and showcase the work? I’m glad that photographers like this exist in the world. Ryan Doco Connors has shot everyone from experienced models to people in the villages of Japan to the girl next door in his very own backyard, and made every one of them look extraordinary and beautiful. His work can be anything from soft and mysterious to striking, dark and filled with emotion.
Last but certainly not least Kelsey Harker. How can I begin to describe Kelsey? Modeling is more than being extraordinarily beautiful (which she most definitely is) it’s about knowing how to move, knowing how your body looks best, knowing what facial expressions and what lighting will convey certain moods. Kelsey is nothing short of a living work of art.
But what happens when all three of these talented people get together? Apart from me being super thankful?
