Ben Trovato first saw the light of day in July 2009. Through passion and dedication, creator Marius Troy has created a platform where his vision to help aspiring fashion photographers become discovered, as well as generating inspiration to all interested in the art form, can be accomplished.

Since its creation, Ben Trovato has had almost 100 million hits, and millions of visits. It has been featured in fashion magazines all over the world, and has quickly grown to be the place the business turns to for inspiration and new, raw talent.

BT has opened doors for hundreds of photographers, made careers, and been a portal where not only the successful photographers had their work featured, but a place where the up and coming talents are selected to showcase their work.

The site has grown not only in status and popularity, but in size as well. Fall 2010, Founder and Editor in Chief Marius Troy invited Belgian art and fashion enthusiast Bjørn Van Poucke as part of the team, responsible as Assistant Editor and Marketing Manager. The most recent addition as Communications Manager, Michelle Lanning, finalizes the Holy Trinity Ben Trovato stands for. (taken from blog)

I have yet again had a lovely time working with very talented photographer Kim Akrigg. We went with the idea of bold accents in color with pale smooth skin. A first time working with model Chantelle Lauren–great work ladies!




I Heart Mea – Tropical

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:
