When another photographer trusts you to take images of them, it is a very humbling feeling. Billie and I have been good friends for a couple of years now. We first met when I had approached her, on my first trip to Toronto, about meeting up, chatting about photography and having her critique my work (check out her work, she’s a wonderful photographer). Since then we have become good friends and stay in good contact. This was a shoot we did for fun as Billie wanted to get more experience in front of the camera, for various reasons. If you’re reading this, as a photographer, get someone you trust to take photos of you. You can learn a lot on the other side of the lens. I was very flattered she asked me and was more than happy to shoot her. Read on for more…
This was such a wonderful day! While the images don’t show it, the 3 of us laughed the entire day. I was very fortunate to work with Shawnna Downing, who is absolutely amazing makeup artist (she also did the hair for this shoot). I’m a big fan of Shawnna’s work and was very excited to work with her that day. These were all shot in Billie’s apartment, using only window light and an occasional reflector. Hope you enjoy the images!
