This was a creative photo shoot with Toronto model/actress Premika Leo, shot in my old apartment in Verdun, Quebec. We literally threw the wig on her and went “freestyle” as I call it, no plan just shot and had fun. I love this set, this is what happens when the model and photographer create magic together! Hope you enjoy!
Jeny May is one of my favourite models/actress to photograph of all time. She is hands down the most expressive personality on camera I am worked with, and connects with the photographer to create amazing images. This set was photographed with “Life is a Cabaret” theme in mind in my old studio on William street in Montreal. Originally we shot this to submit to the infamous Suicide Girls site, and although it wasn’t accepted we had an incredible time shooting this set. Jeny is now living and working as an actress in LA, but may be coming to Montreal for a visit, I can’t wait to work with her again! Enjoy!
Loved working with Montreal model Leah Rose on this editorial style photo shoot. It was for shot for her model portfolio, and was shot in my old apartment in Verdun, Quebec. Despite the fact we had no professional make-up artist at that time, we managed to come out with some hot images. I styled the hair myself, as I am more concerned about the way hair looks in a photograph than the make-up. Leah is one of my favourite models as she is extremely versatile and can come across as many different characters, depending on the look you are going for. I hope you enjoy these shots, comments are welcome!
“Isn’t she…Pretty in Pink” this shoot conjures up images from the famous song from the Psychedelic Furs. I loved shooting this set inspired by Helmut Newton’s fashion style of photography. This shoot was shot in an empty house in Toronto, styled and photographed by Angelique Caplette, make-up by Natalia Zurwaska, Model: Zuzia…….Enjoy!
I met Tamar on the subway while living in Toronto, I am not one to ask a stranger to shoot but on this case I could not resist and just asked. Tamar it turned out was a model recruited by Sutherland models and she agreed to shoot a fashion “Creative” with me along with this amazing set of semi nudes. Sometimes simplicity really is best so I decided on a simple neon green sheer fabric on nude skin, the results were incredible. Make-up by Toronto artist Omar Roessler a 20 year veteran in the business, and my all time fav to work with. I really need to start shooting images like these again! this is where my passion lives. I hope you all enjoy. – Angelique Caplette P.S. Very minimal photo retouching here just how I like it!!!!!!
Good evening everyone welcome back to Fashion Friday, it’s been a very busy week shooting, and I a writing this a wee bit tired! This week’s photo session features Montreal alternative actress/model Faith Rayah. I had a great time working with Faith she is a very experienced and expressive model, my favourite shot is the hair flying image which took a few tries to get that look. Faith was wearing designs from Primal Attitude & Gabriel Motorcycles. Hope you enjoy!
Another sensual samedi with an oldie but goodie entitled “Watermelon Girl” to take your mind off the cold weather. These photos have never been seen or published other than one close-up shot. Melina approached me from finding my work on the net and asked me to work with her. I normally do not shoot “Creative shoots” (free) unlessI think the model can be published or the images will sell in future. I made an exception in Melina’s case, she is an exotic mix of Asian & Spanish and was a stunning model. I was later approached by the New York Times in 2009 to use one of these images in a summer issue but I was waiting to see if they would sell so I had to decline. In any case I hope you enjoy this set it is completely un-retouched and as is. I love the old days of NO photoshop! Enjoy comments welcome
I shot this set in my old vintage one bedroom apartment on Queen street west Toronto. I started officially shooting as my profession at that time and left my “day job”. Giselle was a model for Elite at the time, she was the kind of model that blows your mind when she gets in front of the camera, there was no need to direct her as almost everything she did looked like a photograph. I never was able to find her again after this shoot, I heard she developed an addiction but I have these incredible shots. There are many more of this set which I may post at a later date.
She came in like the wind and blew her beauty into my eyes, her body moved with grace, she left me with a heavy heart and curious mind……Angelique Caplette Photographer
