Lifestyle – Just Becz: Rae’s red hot shoot

‘Just Becuz’ sessions are just about my favourite kind of shoots. There’s something to be said about an unabashed display of vanity born out of confidence, beauty and just plain fabulousness.  There’s nothing like getting primped and primed for part of a day, selecting the best outfits and scoping out cool locations and then spending the other half letting out your fierceness in front of a camera. Well Rae did just that recently and I was honoured to capture the amazing beauty of this totally stunning, oh so smart, not to be messed with diva during a fly-by trip to the Dirty South.  Here is a slideshow of some of my favs from the shoot.

BTW – I’m loving the updates on my blog. They make blogging so much easier and will hopefully make me much more efficient in sharing the work I shoot!

Lifestyle – Just Becuz: Teaser! Red Hot RLL

It’s mid-May already! Like seriously, why does time fly and to where is it flying? If only that question could be answered.  It feels like New Years day was like yesterday and all of a sudden we are heading towards Summer solstice.  Hmmm!  Anyway, flying or not, I did have a fun time shooting a super fly ‘Just Becuz’ session recently. Looking forward to sharing more from this shoot shortly.  Here’s a lil’teaser for you…

Commercial: Part III – Telema’s theatrical designs

Telema is a pretty talented designer and he has been commissioned by theater productions and cultural troupes to design costumes, accessories and sets. During the shoot for his 2010 ready-to-wear collection, I took the liberty to capture some of his theatrical (Royal Africa) designs.

Now before anyone even asks me if this is a real model or if the shot is real, I have to ‘yes it is!’. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a real six pack like this before and I’m not sure when I’ll ever see one again.

Commercial: High fashion meets the urban jungle (Part I)

So I have been quite busy lately, or at least it seems that way. As promised a while ago, here is the first set of my favorite images from the shoot I did with Telema the owner of Telema Designs to preview his 2010 collection.  He also coerced me into developing his new website, which is one of the other reasons why I’ve been MIA.  I think it came out not to shabby, if I may say so myself (wink! wink!).

Anyway, back to the shoot…The theme for the shoot was ‘high fashion meets the urban jungle’.  As I mentioned in my previous post, the shoot was such a busy day and I really learnt quite a bit about working with models, make-up artists, stylists, designers, creative directors and of course the on-lookers – all at once! At times it seemed like complete chaos, but at the end of the day the main mission was accomplished.  There are definitely a few things I will do differently next time.  In constantly learning about myself, my passion and my style, and looking through these images as I processed them, I realise that there is still so much to explore in the realm of photography. While I continue working on a few other commissions, enjoy the shots below and watch out for a few more in my next post.
