Remember when I filmed this video of Lola Frost and Melody Mangler a year ago? (If not, I strongly advise that you check it out here)

Well, looks like at the end of the video shoot, I actually grabbed 2 or 3 photos of the 2 amazing burlesque dancers. And when I say 2 or 3, this time I really mean 2 or 3.

This is one of them…

Lola and Melody are 2 of the best burlesque performers in North America (both part of the burlesque hall of fame) and I felt very privileged to share a couple of hours with them last year.

If you know Lola, you should also know that she now has an extremely rad hair cut (quite different from the one above) so something tells me that I should have another shoot with her and Melody…

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.

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.

My friends Lizbit and Cyn came to the studio to say “hi” last week. So we took a few photos.

I’m not one to let a portrait opportunity go to waste.

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.
