Great afternoon photographing Joseph Langton, a model/musician from Toronto, to add to my alternative fashion book (get used to me saying alternative fashion book until I have a name for the project.  I am open to suggestions on the name).  Joseph is probably one of the coolest, most down to earth guys you could meet although these images would fool you.  It didn’t take Joseph long into the session to get into character and there were so many awesome shots to choose from.  As usual, these are my favourite five.

Soundtrack for the shoot was Rage Against The Machine’s self titled album and The Battle of Los Angeles album.  Man those albums kick a$$!!!

I decided a few months back to start a collection of my yet to be titled alternative fashion shoots for an upcoming book.  These shoots try to incorporate a high fashion style with the feeling of “after dark”, “lost souls”, “broken hearts”, “lovecry/soulcry”, etc.  The key is to keep it raw both in the shoot and the retouching.  I wasn’t quite sure how Colette would react to this type of shoot but she definitely pulled it off.  Gone is the usual soft lighting, perfect make up and fashion retouching in the darkroom.  She even happily smudged her make up.  We had fun trying to get the perfect shot as she tossed her hair from side to side although after 20 minutes of trying even I was getting dizzy and light headed.  Here are a few from the afternoon.

Soundtrack for the shoot was David Bowie’s Young American.

Karyn Dwyer at the Studio

Had a great time shooting this talented and gorgeous actor from Toronto.  Her credits include This Is Wonderland, Better Than  Chocolate, Last Call Before Sunset and most recently Republic of Doyle.  Karyn splits her time between Los Angeles and Toronto and needed some new head shots to cover both markets. This one was my favourite of the day.  Got to love those eyes!

Thanks to Colette for her assistance once again.

Soundtrack for the shoot was Portishead (all albums!).
