(some titles sound better in Spanish) – A pictorialist version…
Sometimes you’ve got enough shoots in the vault, that you’ve gotta pace them out…It’s a surprise that we could even keep a secret for so long and not succumb to the usual ‘reveals’ on Instagram! Our good friend Kirsty proposed that our location be at a lovely Estate in Merrickville… One look, and we were sold. Every room was delightfully decorated, spacious, and unique. We had a lot of incredible vendors work on this with us, credits are below – we can’t thank our team enough. So much love for this one! I’m not a big fan of over-explaining visuals, so here is the fruit of our labour. Enjoy it! Let the shots speak for themselves. (And before ask, yes that Fleur of England Ashley is wearing in the first shot is available in Ottawa – at Amanda May Lingerie). A big thank you to Burnett’s Boards for publishing this piece of our imaginations.

The results from a fashion creative we photographed a few weeks ago. There’s no real theme here, apart from experimenting with hair and make up, and shooting some great portraits with our model, Stephanie.
I took the opportunity to make a long overdue trip to see my good buddy in Copenhagen, Denmark last month. Though I was pretty bagged from all the flying, I did manage to stay awake a full 31 hours straight to force myself to get adjusted to Euro-time. Upon arriving at 9:30am, Kristian (my buddy) put a coffee in my hand and suggested we immediately take a bike ride – the best way to get around in Copenhagen – to explore parts of the city. The shots below are from my first day / afternoon there. A beautiful city with lots of character, great beer, and a fine misty atmosphere that you may or may not be able to see in the photos. I wish I had more time to really get into the nooks and crannies of this Scandinavian city, but that would have to wait for the next time – We flew out to the French Alps a couple of days later for an amazing snowboard vacation.
