Ensnare

I’m a little behind with posting on my blog about the work I’ve been doing on the portrait-series-with-no-name. These two photos are from a shoot I did with Kirsti a few weeks ago in Pacific Spirit Park. We went into the forest looking for the perfect location, but the early evening light was too low. Instead I found just the spot I needed in the bushes at the edge of the road right where we’d parked. I love how this portrait turned out with the beautiful green leaves and Kirsti’s striking gaze.

I have to say that Kirsti is one of my favorite people to photograph because she’s very photogenic (despite her claims otherwise) and she’s game for the dressing up or stand here, stand there requests I make while shooting.

I should mention Kirsti’s work has been featured on the Canadian Design Resource Blog twice in the last week. Once for the “Octopus & Frigate Birds” Illustration she created for Lulu lemon, and once for the logo design she created for me.

Kirsti is my favourite subject of your photographs of people. You two always seem to come up with something striking each time you shoot together!

Thanks Jamie. I’m glad Kirsti decided to participate in my portrait series because I knew she’d be great.
