This vintage style shoot  featured the lovely Charity Plamondon. She is an accomplished Vancouver model that has been working in the industry internationally for about 10 years. She is part of the John Casablancas Agency and has worked in Asia, Milan, you name it! Not only is she stunning in a photo or runway, she is also all around a very beautiful woman. Pure, soft and truly one of the sweetest, kindest people out there, never failing to mention how grateful she was to be able to do all of the things that she has had the opportunity to do.

I Heart Mea – Tropical

September 1, 2010

Photographer: Kim Akrigg
Model: Susan Puno
Stylist/Designer: Meagan Therese Squire
MUA: Carolyn Leanne Secord

This shoot was for Meagan Squires clothing line I Heart Mea. The 3 outfits were designed for a tropical themed fashion show that took place last April.

Meagan is a local Vancouver designer currently focusing on custom attire. I have had the chance to work with her a couple of times now and its always been a pleasure. She is an adorable girl with a fun sense of style. The first time I was graced by her company was at the Common Wealth Fashion show that featured this past month. I got to do up her ladies that were dressed in black, studs and plastic! Crazy and exciting night. She definitely has quite a range in her styling and designing abilities.

You can take a look what shes got going on at her site:

ekleiptikos

Photography: Lynol Lui

“ekleipikos, greek for ecliptic or eclipse came to mind while editing. with the power and beauty you witness during and eclipse, layers, multiplicity and chaos created from the apocalyptic distortions felt during the even. well at least that the beauty i’m thinking of, lol.”

Those words are from the very talented photographer and friend, Lynol Lui. He is always pushing the boundaries (and mine!). Whether it be the subject matter or conceptual ideas, styling of the photo or style itself, he never ceases to disappoint. His dedication to his work and constructive criticism on mine has made him a very inspiring person and mentor. I am looking forward to the continuation of our collaboration.

Its all in the past

May 23, 2010

Here is a little background on my history of photography. Some projects I have done while in Fine Arts in university, enjoy!

When I began to work with concepts I immediately got sucked into the exploration of collections, those who collect and the obsession in collecting. The photos below reflect this repetitive action not only visually by capturing those who partake in the action itself, but also within the process of making the art itself. These individuals have been chosen for their collecting of similar items that may not be needed in duplication, keeping items that after use will not serve a purpose, and buying items that you may not ever use just because it fits into the category of your collection. Generally people like this find a comfort in purchasing something they know they already enjoy. They know they will not be disappointed. It is their safety blanket.

The idea of comfort and then safety blanket was taken into the construction of this concept. I figure, what is more collective and repetitive then the process of making  a quilt? Not only before, in the act of collection all of the bits of fabric, but after with the repetition of the sewing itself.

I then felt like I was being sucked in to this repetitive obsessive nature and decided to float with it. The images I used were taken, then photocopied, then the photocopy was photocopied and so forth. This created a spectrum of the image from the original quality to a very contrasted degraded quality, speaking of the progression of collecting. The more and more you acquire of these items, the less and less sense it makes. the final step was making these images into photo transfers, so I could sew them into the quilt.

I don’t have an image of the quilt at the moment.
