In February, heading back to one of my favorite places to shoot, Vancouver, Canada. I’ll be up there for a week, and teaching a wide array of flash techniques, both in seminar style classes and one and two day intensive workshops. Hit this link for full info.
It’ll be a hoot. I reunite with some of my favorite models, and favorite photo community folks, such as the dramatically beautiful Shazmin, shot here with just one light.
Also get a chance to work again with friend and local Vancouver shooter, Syx Langemann. Syx is something of a legend up there in Vancouver, and I always enjoy the collaboration. It’s also a chance to update their family photo.
One of Syx’s specialties has always been nudes, dance, and figure studies, and he and Taryn actually met on such a shoot. So, in keeping with that tradition, I photographed the two of them when Taryn was pregnant with their first. They have two kids now, so time for a new portrait this year.
Vancouver remains a wonderfully vibrant and creative photo community, and I always learn a great deal whenever I am there. It’s a chance to experiment, teach, and shoot in a great city, and one that actually has decent weather in February. (Well, compared to Connecticut.)
