Brandi. Swimwear shoot


Here's a swimwear shoot feating model Brandi Gray.
This was an overcast and rainy morning in Bouctouche, NB that day. We had to wait while storm passes and hope for the sun to come out. It never did during the shoot, and when it did, we were already wrapping up. :(

I have images from quite few shoots just sitting on my drives and waiting. Some shoots I was just not happy with at the time, others just didn't know how to edit. And so they wait like unfinished paintings for me to dust them off and continue working on them again. 
Here're few images from one of those shoots back in 2014 with good friend and musician Gregorry Parra.

"A Suivre" Poster Images



Images created for dancers of Les Grands Ballets de Montreal and their choreographic workshop called "A Suivre" (http://www.grandsballets.com/en/performance/atelier-choregraphique/)

Creating this set of images was truly a group effort. As the shoot progressed, we figured that much better images were coming out while the dancers were moving, instead of trying to hold each pose.

I took series of images while the dancers improvised. After capturing about 30-40 images, this particular images really stood out from the computer screen making it an obvious choice.

"A Suivre". Dancers-Choreographers of Les Grands Ballets de Montreal.




I recently did portraits of Les Grands Ballets dancers for their upcoming show in Montreal called "A Suivre".

Quote from press release about "A Suivre":

  "A space where experimentation and bold ideas are given free rein, Les Grands Ballets’ choreography workshop is an opportunity for the company’s dancers to explore the art of choreography and the various aspects of staging a show.
  Entirely conceived and created by the dancers of Les Grands Ballets, who for the occasion will be choreographers, technicians, publicists, and last but not least…dancers. "

Dancer's career can be really short and that's why it's so cool that they have the opportunity to try themselves in something different.  

If you want to get more info about the shows and dates or support the guys, you can do it here:

Here are portraits of all twelve choreographers as well as some behind the scenes images. We shot the guys in their ballet studio. Individual portraits were mostly lit with window light and only strobes were used for the group shots. 

Huge thanks to Mike Phang for helping out on this shoot.

Karyn. Full Set.



Here is a full set of images from a shoot with Karyn.
Karyn came prepared. She did her own hair/make-up and even styled everything herself. She also brings her incredible personality on set and as a result I was left with tonnes of images to choose from, so that's why this post has more images than usually.

Some images contain partially nudity and can be considered NSFW.

Karen. NSFW



Right before I moved to Montreal, I got the opportunity to photograph Halifax based model Karen Murdock. 
I always wanted to photograph Karen. The combination of quiet calmness of her face with expressiveness of her body made Karen very appealing subject for me.

Here're few of the images from that day in studio.

Tiago



I'm learning that there're many male models in Montreal anxious to get in front if the camera because most photographers prefer photographing girls (big surprise). So maybe there's a niche to be filled. :)

Here's another new face at Specs Models - Tiago.

"Ghost" Rider.



I already posted some images from second part of the shoot with Halifax model Kelly Martell (http://kacorbeau.tumblr.com). If you missed it, then go HERE.

Kelly drove her Harley Davidson "Ghost" to our shoot in Shediac and I wanted to feature them together. For a backdrop I chose mural painted by local artist Monette Leger.

George Belliveau. Album Cover Shoot



Past summer I was working on a new album cover for NB country singer George Belliveau. We planned a studio portrait shoot for George alone and one shoot on location with his band.  While going over some location options, George mentioned he would prefer old pier or wharf. For no apparent reason. Just because it would look cool.

I knew of couple locations around Moncton which would fit the description. One of them is old wharf located in Belliveau Village. When I told George about it, I learned that that's where he grew up. And all of a sudden everything clicked. I knew we had to shoot there and nowhere else. It made perfect sense. It wasn't JUST cool place anymore. Now it had a story.

Fitness Model Jessica Bonnelly. 3 Years Later




First time I worked with Jessica was in 2012.  It was right before her very first competition (click HERE to see images from her coffee table book).

And here we are three years later shooting together again, right after she took 1st place in medium class at NB Provincials.  It was interesting to see how much she's grown as a figure model. She has gained a lot more confidence since then, but still remained same humble girl I remember when we met first time.
