the new May issue of V-rag just hit the shelves. i had the pleasure of collaborating with makeup artists Eman Aziz on producing and photographing the cover and fashion editorial. my first cover actually! we worked with the 2010 Vancouver Gay Top Model winner Fraser, and fabulous fashion stylist Peter Hoang of thestarvingstylist.com. my good friend and amazing assistant for this shoot, Georgia, took it upon herself to take behind-the-scene photos, which is always great.
for you strobists out there, this shoot was almost 100% natural light. for the most part a reflector was all that was used to create fill, and on the last set in the alley a SB900 was fired behind the model to create some separation when shooting against the dark wall (which were left out of the editorial).
