Today I had the pleasure of working with an amazing team of creatives on a shoot that’s been brewing in my head for a while. I will always be a student of light and one of the masters of lighting is a photographer by the name of Albert Watson. You might know him by his famous portrait of Steve Jobs that was used pretty much everywhere when Jobs died.
I recently watched a video of Albert Watson working in the studio with a Russian dancer and was inspired to do a session with similar lighting.
Today’s shoot was out of a studio in the Cotton Factory in Hamilton. The studio is owned by a former student of mine and I had shot there before. This was my first time working with makeup artist Kaitlin O’Neil and she was amazing! Our subject was Raavyn who I photographed in a fitness session a few years ago.
My friend and colleague Megan Muir was first assistant on today’s sessions and I always enjoy working with her.
All in all it was an incredible team effort, enjoy the results below.
