SOLEIL – My last image of the year on Vogue Italia

Vogue Italia is considered by many to be the bible of fashion photography.  Models and artists are often immortalized in the industry when their work is approved and published in such magazines.  In this particular case  -and in the spirit of the season with family fun and visits- I had the pleasure of lensing my 4 year old niece, Soleil, who was visiting our frozen city all the way from the sunny California.  I am so beyond words in experiencing the moment of magic she gave me, here and without any further ado approved and published today on VOGUE ITALIA online, I give you Soleil! Let the Sun Shine!  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone!

@ECRMagazine – My Interview on Explore Create Repeat

My interview with Explore Create Repeat was published today.

“Girl and the Hat” on and the resurgence of the B&W series form the Bar Shoot

Location shoots are so much more superior to studio shoots.  There is more energy, action, things can go wrong and that is a blessing, like small miracles; so you can pick it up from scratch and create something new with whatever that you have.  Every frame is a gorgeous creation of the team members… there is no end!

Amazing styling by Luis Rajiv fueled me to reprocess and cull the best of black and white from the shoot we did at the DESOTOS bar in Toronto.

Reverence of Beauty (The VOGUE ITALIA frames)

VOGUE Link #1      VOGUE Link #2     VOGUE Link #3

I think we struck a chord here. Three frames of the beauty story Reverence of Beauty were published on Vogue Italia’s PhotoVogue.  Once again a big thanks to the creative team with Melissa @ Spot6 emoting with such power, talented Sebastien Tardif on the make-up and the awesome Daniele Manzini on hair.  Photography and Styling by yours truly.

Reverence of Beauty (published on The Beauty Scene)

This shoot was impromptu in concept but it was the spontaneity and the energy of the creative team that gave it life in creating the following beautiful visuals. There is no beauty without emotion and it was the sheer ability of our beautiful model, Melissa, to emote that I knew right off the bat that we had a winner. It really challenges you to reflect on what beautiful means… let this series be the “sign language” to illustrate that feeling.
