It is that time of year once again, Movember. To launch the beginning of Movember, my friend Jeffrey Rafuse (House of Barons) was asked to come to the office of the mayor of Ottawa to give him a straight razor shave. Matt (GM of House of Barons) Jeff and I brought everything necessary for a proper shave including an over 100 year old barber chair to the brief case/shave kit. During the press conference held by mayor Jim Watson, he was sat down and shaved in the boardroom infront of the local press. Thanks for bringing me along.

Was going through some photos from 2013 and am bringing them up to date.
Fast Food and Fast Nudes.
Shot by Christopher.
For this shoot we used plenty of red and blue gels (sometimes overlapping to make purple) on a variety of strobes. I wanted to have an outrageous amount of coloured light and I wanted to play with motion in a way that mirrored the energetic and colourful nature of the model.
Since my camera cannot do double exposures, I shot the majority of these images using longer shutter speeds and froze the subject multiple times in one exposure by having an assistant manually trigger the flash several times, while coordinating with the movements of the model.
The end result is both technically and creatively satisfying and a unique representation of our model.
