Beach Photoshoot

I participated in a beach Photoshoot recently.  It wasn't my first time doing a sunset swimwear shoot, but this time I wanted to try something different.  I decided to use artificial light for most of my shot in complement to the sun to light my images.  The idea was to get more control over the light and produce beautiful images.  I believe the result speak for themselves, let me know what you think.

Gatsby meet Gangster

It was about 14 months ago when I was shooting a wedding that I discovered this little pub inside a Hotel.  Right away the place resonated with me.  "I have to shoot here!" I thought to myself right away.  After months of thinking about different concepts and ideas I constantly had this gangster theme that kept coming back.  So I started my planning process with the gangster idea.  As I got closer to getting a theme or creative together, the whole concept got a more 1930's inspired glamorous turn.  This is where Gatsby meet Gangster styled shoot came to be.  

My plan was to have a styled shoot with a full theme of creatives; 6-7 model, hmuas, assistant, etc.  Have a huge retro style party and do a shoot out of it. Ultimately I had people cancel at the last minute so the concept changed yet again.  All that to say I am quite happy with the end result.

Thanks You:  Big shoutout to my models, Amber Erlik and Utkarsh Singh, two real trouper and fantastic persons.  Nicolas Leclerc for assisting me.  Hotel V for allowing me to shoot in their hotel and Dominique Levesque Bridal Salon for the dresses.  hmua: Amber Erlik
