On Saturday, I had my first official shoot in the new studio.

As you might have seen on the previous photos, the space is big and white. But what you haven’t seen, is that we do have some cool steal doors and other funky materials here and there that we can use, so we don’t always shoot against a white wall.

To prove my point, I had my friend August Wiled over.

August is a model, singer, flute and guitar player, burlesque dancer and has been practicing ballet dancing for 16 years. Quite the resume!!!

If you’re looking for a great model in Vancouver, I definitely suggest you check her out.

We shot a lot of photos to get acquainted with the new studio and this is one of them.

What do you think?

Growing up, I wasn’t a big camping fanatic.

Then, I moved to Canada and discovered that camping could be done in places like Birkenhead lake.

I now officially dig camping… ;o)

I flew back from Alberta late last night, and I have seen some crazy things in the past 3 days, some incredibly sad and some very fun and intense.

Yesterday, I spent 6 hours outside by -25 degrees, directing 20 people, 6 trucks and 2 trailers in front of a giant oil rig. And at some point the buttons of my camera started to freeze. My face was red last night too.

In the meantime, as I mentioned here a few days ago, during my latest studio shoot with August Wiled, there might have been another model.

Indeed, Ruffle Silkskin, a Vancouver burlesque dancer came by the studio as well.

I have a lot of very cool photos of her, but for now, as a teaser and transition between August’s shoot and hers, here is a photo of the 2 of them together.

For those of you who wonder how I obtain such stable footage when I shoot videos, here is my big secret:

Always sit on a 5000$ chair with one leg crossed…

Here is a behind the scenes of the behind the scenes… Am I blowing your mind right now or what!?

Well this is it Folks, I have officially moved in to a brand spanking new studio in Vancouver.

This project has been on the back burner for quite a while now, and it is finally time to crank things up a notch. In my previous little studio I could shoot one or 2 models at the time, now I can shoot about 20 models + a big truck (not that this kind of setup would ever happen, but if it does, I am ready for it…)

This new venture would not have been possible without my good friend Dina Goldstein, who put all this together. I couldn’t be happier and honored to be able to share the studio with her. You might know her from her internationally famous “Fallen Princesses” photo series. She also recently finished the spectacular “In the doll house” project.

Dina was the first photographer to get back to me when I reached out to people 4 years ago, fresh off the boat from France. And my Canadian career would definitely not have started that fast if it hadn’t been for her.

My first official shoot in the space is this week-end, I’m pretty excited to see what I can do with it.

Stay tuned for some new cool photos.

Yesterday I was on a boat…

Everybody seems to be freaking out in BC because summer appears to be over. As you can see by the clouds and the sky here.

I strongly disagree and think we’ll be able to play Frisbee shirtless for the next 3 weeks.  But it doesn’t change the fact that it’s September 22nd and it’s now Fall.

Happy Fall everyone!!!

Skiing season started early this year in Vancouver, so today I grabbed my gear and headed to Cypress to try something a little bit different.

I may or may not have spent a couple of hours testing my GoPro Hero 3+

More about this soon…

I am pretty stoked about it!!!

This is where I spent most of my time last week.

The big green building is Martyshuk Housing “Loft” where they house some of their clients (who used to be homeless) and above it is the view from the south facing units. Pretty cool view isn’t it?

If you missed it yesterday, you can see her on my latest EKTA photo as well.

Saturday, I’ve had the great pleasure to meet actress Keegan Connor Tracy.

She was in need of new headshots and stopped by my studio for an hour.

I knew her from TV shows such as “Supernatural”,“The 4400”, “Eureka” or “Battlestar Galactica”, and she now plays in a show called “Once upon a time”.

More photos from her shoot in the days to come, but in the mean time be sure to tune in every Sunday nights (season premiere on Sept 30th) at 8pm on ABC and check her out.

And if you need new headshots, you now know who to contact, right…?

A few weeks ago, I got commissioned by the BC Government’s Correction Department to shoot the Peace Officers Memorial Service in Stanley Park.

This event, that takes place every year on the last Sunday of September, brings together representatives of BC’s finest officers. From correctional officers to police, and RCMP.

I gotta admit that, having hundreds of officers marching around in uniforms, with drums, bagpipes, horses, flags and all, gave me patriotic goose bumps.

Anyway, part of my job was to take nice portraits of the correction officers present that day, against a white backdrop. Pretty straight forward.

But the other part was to follow them around the park and photograph them while marching. And of course, it doesn’t say anywhere in the protocol that the officers have to stop for me to shoot a nice group photo (go figure), so I had to be quick on my feet.

So when they started marching, after looking around quickly, I realized that I had a very (and I mean VERY) short window of opportunity where my group was gonna walk on a tiny bridge, with the whole city in the back. And the kicker… the tiny bridge had a ledge that I could climb to shoot from higher and catch them all nicely.

This all took place in about 15 seconds, so if you were there that day and saw a dude run with a pelican case, throw it on the ground, climb and shoot while trying not to do a face plant, well, that was me…

I could only get 3 shots before they were out of frame and I had to run ahead of them again. This is one of them.

Good times, I tell you… Good times.
