You saw, the version of that photo with August sharp and Ruffle blurry here a few days ago, here is now the photo taken about one second later.

You guys have no idea how much I enjoy shooting with my new 85mm. That lens is so fast and soooo sharp at f/1.2!

I haven’t actually used it at any other aperture so far, and I am not about to, as it is so bokehlicious! (as my friend Thierry M would say.)

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!?

When you work as a photographer, all of your friends think that you only do glamor stuff and photo shoots in spectacular locations with models running around half naked.

While you actually spend 90% of your time on your computer, either processing and editing photos or videos, social-networking, quoting or invoicing clients etc…

But 90% in the office means you still have those 10% shooting on location somewhere.

And if you play your cards right, that 10% can be worth the wait.

Yesterday was a “10%” day.

I got to collaborate with Jennifer Williams and Kelly Trerise and a bunch of models (and yes, they where running around half naked…) and we were shooting at the 54th floor of the tallest building in Vancouver, the Shangri-la.

If you’re not familiar with Jennifer and Kelly’s work, check them out, if you’re a woman, be sure to book yourself a boudoir session with them, I can assure you you won’t regret it.

I’ll tell you more about the actual reason I was on set yesterday very soon, when I can show you the result of my hard work. (Yes, it was fun but we still shot for 12 hours straight.)

In the mean time, here is a photo of what we had to work with all day.

I once heard Vincent Laforet say that he never throws away photographs. No matter how many he took during a shoot. Good or bad being such a subjective concept. You never know when you’re gonna need a blurry photo or a picture with an odd crop where your model has one eye shut. (that might be pushing it, but you get the drift)

Well, like Vincent, I never throw away any photo I take, which results in a certain amount of hard drives (plus the equivalent in backup of course).

But the good thing is that I shoot so many photos that I eventually forget about some of them. And when I decide to go through some of my old shoots every now and then I discover some “outtakes” that I still really like but that didn’t make the cut.

As a proof, here are 2 photos of my friend Nikkey on which I didn’t even stop the first around.

P.S: Can you see the crack on that lens!? It actually still shoots quite well.

Pamela and friends…

These days I am not shooting that much, I still am, but not that much.

But I am browsing through some old photos to clean my computer a bit.

Here is a photo I took at the beginning of 2010.

What would I do without outtakes I ask you…

Jaime…

When I am at the studio, I sometime take an afternoon and invite some people to pose for me.
It’s a great exercise, to work on my directing skills, lighting skills and also it’s the perfect opportunity to learn how to shoot a different photo in a space I have used many times.
So this is Jaime, in one of the corner of the studio, she was actually getting ready when I grabbed this shot. I came back to my love of Candid photography for a few seconds, when people are not aware that you are shooting them.
