In 12 years as a professional photographer I am still amazed at all that can still be learnt in this trade! It definitely keeps work exciting and new! I have admired all the young new photographers entering the field with ambition and creativity, this post will demonstrate that!
Last week I had the opportunity to photograph along side many other photographers in a “Styled Shoot” hosted by Karly Ford Photo and Chasing Dreams Photography. What is a “styled shoot” you ask? Well, that was my question too! Turns out that I have already done some right here in our small community without really knowing it, or going into it this elaborately. This is a shoot that is pure collaboration with vendors and models, with clothing chosen specifically for the shoot, provided by specific clothing retailers, props and flowers designed and provided, hair and make-up is also a part of the collaboration and of course the people modelling everything for the photographs. These models weren’t just models though, they were real people posing in their real relationships, so all the interaction between them captured is real love. As photographers we just had the pleasure of photographing all of this put together.
For me, the learning came in the fact that collaboration can happen and can be planned for a shoot, not just by the client, but by the photographer! I look forward to creating more of this opportunity right here in the future!
Such gorgeous couples and a seriously beautiful family allowed us the privilege of capturing them in their moments, looking amazing! All taking place in Drumheller, Alberta. It’s always so fun for me to photograph in locations that aren’t anything like I am used to up here. We enjoyed the rocky, dessert, avoiding the small cacti, amidst the smoky haze over the sun from the BC wild fires.
Enjoy the images, there are many more, but I didn’t have much time and wanted to get some posted! So look out for more!
