SESSION/SHOOT: Marc-André


Une session dans un sous-bois près de chez Marc-André, ça valait la peine. Beaucoup de couleurs chaudes, de décors verts envahissants sous un bleu d’infini et d’une nature luxuriante qu’on oublie trop souvent.

Note: L’ajout de textures photographiques comme le grain a été volontaire. Je voulais par là rapprocher davantage le spectateur avec l’histoire que je met en scène. Aussi, les oppositions entre clair/foncé et orange/bleu créent des harmonies et des contrastes intéressants qui sont utilisés comme métaphore dans un environnement humain, contraire et divergent, où l’homme vit dans ses défauts comme dans ses qualités.

MARIAGE/WEDDING: Josée & Charles


 

Remember that wedding I was talking about in the last post? Here is Josée, a wonderful and such funny, successful woman.

I followed the bride to Vicky’s house, her host for the day but also the woman who took care of everyone’s hair before.

Vicky’s dog was also excited. With around twenty something gals in the house, the atmosphere was so palpable yet serene.

What an amazing smile of hers. She looks so graceful, fully prepared, 100% committed.

Such an original groom: love the fact that the reds were matching and that he wore such an impressive outift next to her amazing wedding dress.

Charles made each and every cupcake. With a little help from some others, he managed to get through all of these while Josée was the main wedding planner.

Then came the first dance. “Kiss from a rose”, by Seal, such a lovely, lovely song.

Thanks for sharing such lovely moments with me, again. Bonne chance à vous deux! : )

SESSION/SHOOT: Alexandra & Charles


Alexandra being my first model (but also high school friend and the premium judge of my early photos) last year when I changed equipment, she wanted to have some photos of her and her boyfriend, Charles. Initially, we planned something in Montreal but we’ll maybe keep that for later, when I’ll project something for Alexandra alone. So we ended up in some secret wooded area of mine.

DSC_1019 DSC_1048 DSC_1050DSC_1025 DSC_1068 DSC_1073

On the day of the shooting (the 24th of July), spontaneously, we planned something near my area. We were looking for something romantic, intimate, without being cheesy or too serious. Doesn’t she just look bubbly and adorable on these ones?

Gorgeous shot of Alexandra, dramatizing all her sense of humour. And, oh, how can you look over the classy Charles below?

SESSION/SHOOT: Seven Sound


Several weeks ago, I showed you this.

SS1

Finally, I’m showing you the outcome of the photo shoot I had with Seven Sound I had back in April. After chatting a while about the concept and what their style was, the atmosphere they were looking for, I brought them in a wooded area, not far from the train station I know. Textures and black and white photos were suggested and accepted with a lot of enthusiasm from me.

Let’s pretend you’re a model on this one, Nicolas.

ss_04 ss_05

They brought their music instruments too. Heavy things.

ss_06 ss_07 ss_07nb

The first one to show to little individuals shots in front of the two others! And since I wasn’t able to choose between colours and black and white…

ss_08

Detail shots.

ss_09 ss_09nb

Great job on having that faithful expression we were looking after, Felix.

ss_10  ss_11nb ss_11ss_12 ss_13 ss_14 ss_14nb

Love how the guitar just enhance the significance of the image itself.

ss_15 ss_16 ss_17 

I can just easily imagine that as a cover for Seven Sound.

ss_19-thelolaction

They are such great friends together. A lot of talks, smiling and of course laughing throughout this session.

ss_19-unhumanthings

Because I wanted industrial shots, I ended up asking them to lay down in some construction pipes.

Some LOL action making its way.

Serious business afterwards.

Smiling.

Thinking.

 ss_25 ss_26

What a great, happy young men you are, Nic.

ss_27 ss_28

Here are some other interesting photos of the band but maybe just less official than the other ones….

VOYAGE/TRAVEL: Ville de Québec


Began digging through the photo shoot I did with Seven Sound, near a station in Ste-Rose. This must be one of my favourites.

SS1

Love the fact that they are friends, they are casual and have a great personality. More to show soon.

Next, a preview from my trip from Old Quebec. What a wonderful city! Didn’t have any problems; people were full of enthusiasm and pass three great days in company of my parents.
