TGIF.  Four extremely important letters to kick-off this round of Fashion Friday, and boy if we haven’t decided to spoil all of our Exposure followers this Friday with another photo installation of the incredibly talented Ludmila Kolesnikov.

As sweater-weather starts to fumble into our lives, thrusting its frigid morning hands upon our rosy-red cheeks, street style has steadily begun to deviate from Summer mode into Autumn-inspired fashion warfare. Paper bag waist pants compete to outshine deep coral wrap coats and stylish pedestrians race to shift the shades of their wardrobes with the changing colours of the leaves.

Meanwhile, the versatile Ludmila Kolesnikov sports a chic Autumn ensemble and provokes September-reverie within every Fall fashionista.

Ludmila has progressively become one of my favourite models to work with, and it’s not difficult to see just why. With her mystical beauty and enthralling natural look, she never ceases to charm my camera. Her editorial features can shape and suit each photo session or style that I conceive. Like a chameleon, she is able to accommodate herself to just about any photo environment while adequately epitomizing the vision I desire.

Fashion Friday: Class, Style, and a Splash of Rouge

It’s that time of week again, folks! Happy Fashion Friday to all of our lovely Exposure fans and followers.

Today the studio is featuring our photography of the stunning Ludmila Kolesnikov.

Brandishing 1940’s elegance in this classic series, Ludmila flaunts her exquisite features while sporting a scarlet dress; its vibrant splash of colour paying homage to her voluminous fuchsia-pout. This girl never ceases to astonish the keen eye of a photographer. She is the quintessence of a camera’s longing infatuation.

Introducing “Sensual Samedi”……..

I would like to announce my new blog theme “Sensual Samedi”, where I will be featuring my favourite muses & clients every Saturday. In case you are wondering, “Samedi” is Saturday en Francais! Throughout all the years photographing women, I have had some private requests to photograph men. I recently had the pleasure of working with Maxime Durocher, a highly publicized male courtesan who caters to a strictly female clientele. These images are from our first photo session together in-studio, very fitting for  the “Sensual Samedi” theme. I hope you enjoy his images for more info on Maxime Click HERE

Fashion-Friday! Tamar: All That Sultry Vogue 

page-1-img-5

These sensual images flaunt exactly why I enjoy experimenting with lighting so much. My photo session with Tamar highlights how effective it can be to toy with contrast and brightness in order to draw attention to the dynamic structures and contours of a model. I’m always amazed by how the slightest manipulation of light and shade can be such a powerful tool to shape the overall mood of a picture. In my experience, no photo-shoot is ever quite the same, so when I’m faced  with someone like Tamar (above) who possesses such jaw-dropping features that demand to be immortalised within the permanence of my camera, the tiny fashion photographer residing within me starts to fidget and tap; an itching restlessness to come out and make a scene! In this particular shoot, I found that the harmonious interplay between light and colour were elemental in making this series such a provocative display.

Shot back in Wiltshire at my old studio, this shoot was without question one of my favourites to prepare and produce! what made it even more memorable was the great pleasure of working with Omar Roessler; one of the most talented makeup artists I’ve ever collaborated with. He was able to achieve exactly what I had envisioned, using his skillful hand to harness the look that I’d been trying to manifest while effectively spotlighting Tamar’s sultry features against the lustrous space of my studio.

Tamar, our graceful model, was with Sutherland Models in Toronto at the time. With a hint of luck, I discovered her on the subway as I was making my daily commute home. Between her dynamite look, my vision, and our incredible makeup artist’s crafty expertise, the series came out swathed in aesthetic allure.

Some of you might be interested to know that I shot an additional nude version of this series as well.

As a Matter of Fact, It’s Perfect for Print

    

     Communications specialist Brady Dahmer and his west coast-bred knack for creativity produced the compelling ‘Not Fit for Print’ show; an exhibit that was to be featured in the opening gala of BC’s Fashion Week back in 2006. I was among 24 fortunate Canadian fashion photographers who’s works were hand-picked to be showcased in Brady’s groundbreaking exhibition. Upon its quick acquisition of public esteem, the expo enabled me to gain a reputation and flourish on the national stage as a distinguished ‘Top- Photographer’. 

     This ethereal image is entitled ‘Zuzia’. It was shot in an abandoned house we discovered in Toronto; a structure that wound up serving as an impressive location to revamp as a stand-in studio for our shoot. I can distinctly remember the illustrious lighting inside the vacant home  -how it urged a spellbinding aura through the windows, splashing the building’s empty walls and the nude form of our elegant model under a sculptured gleam. It had our cameras’ tongues wagging… a circumstance that demanded the careful attention of a photographer’s willing eye. 

     Whenever I look back on career milestones like these, I’m always struck by the profound gratitude I feel when engaging in my line of work. I’ll never stop relishing in the pleasure and joy of what I do!

     Zuzia would soon go on to make a comeback upon its installment at the 2011 Toronto LGBT Film Festival.
