Splash - A Latitude 53 fundraiser!

Hope all you return visitors like my new visual identity! I updated my logo, and made everything on my website and blog much simpler and cleaner. I really like it - it's more about the photos than all the foofy business surrounding them! The format of posts will be changing a little too with my new blog so excuse the differences between this how this post looks compared to earlier ones. I think it looks better (and I hope you do too!)

And of course I welcome your feedback - if you don't like it, or if something's not displaying on your computer, please let me know!

I do lots of editorial work for magazines and stuff, but it rarely makes the blog. But I'm really excited to show you all this SUPER FUN editorial shoot I did a few weeks ago for Splash! - a fundraiser on Friday April 1 for Latitude 53, in conjunction with Western Canada Fashion Week. The folks at McRobbie Optamedia and I threw a whole bunch of water at six very lovely, very cooperative models at Eastglen Pool. Although I was pretty close to the action, I somehow avoided getting wet, and so did my cameras! Bonus!

I also did my first D-SLR video project at this photoshoot, which fully shows the hilarious reactions of these six models getting soaked! It's pretty amazing! These videos will be playing in slow-mo (!!!) on big screens at the event on Friday. Eeeee!

And if you happen to be driving down 109th street and 105th ave this week, there's big banners with the photos on 'em hanging in the windows of the former Donovan's clothing store, which is the venue for Friday's event. They look amazing!

Y'all should attend to help raise some money for Edmonton's awesome art community! (And comment and tell me how it went - I'll be livin' it up shooting a wedding that night!)

 

And here is a link to one of the posters, with all the event information you need to attend, designed by the team at McRobbie Optamedia. The desaturation on this photo looks super neat too!!
