Fashion Shoot with PA Gagné

A black fringe dress that came to life achieved this fierce look. It was so much fun styling this one.  As I said in the teaser, we wanted something very dark, very edgy and something that demanded attention. Paired with a double layered gunmetal chain choker, myself and co-stylist Wenwen Liu knew that I was set to play badass for the night.

PA came out with a bang!  He did a great job directing my poses, capturing the shot and in post-processing.  One thing that you know you’ll find in PA’s work is originality and flare.  Montreal is lucky to have a great photographer in its presence and I am honoured to have collaborated with him to produce this art that hopefully inspires many.

Montreal Street Photography on this Fine Weekend

Yesterday I got a new camera! It’s the Olympus E-PM1.  The E-PM1 suits my lifestyle because it is so small and compact – just like me! It’s perfect for my blogging needs because I’ll be able to bring it with me everyday of the summer, which means that no one is safe – don’t be surprised if you end up on one of my blog posts (though I’ll of course remove your photo if you ask me to).

Special thanks to Yannick Khong of http://pyktures.tumblr.com/ for helping me choose my camera, and for giving me the courage to creep random people on the street! This before/after shot is his doing…LOL.  FYI, I was using Yannick’s camera for most (and by most, i mean ALL) of these shots because I didn’t get a chance to charge my battery!

Palm trees everywhere..Welcome to Nice!

 

This is day one of my two month long European adventure! I just landed in Nice, France about 1hr ago. It’s 8 am here and considering that on the plane I sat next to the loudest most obnoxious baby EVER, I should probably get some shut eye. But, I can’t because I’m too distracted by all the palm trees!! It’s absolutely beautiful here and I’ve seen nothing but 1 major street and the highway.

But in all seriousness, I can’t get to my hotel room yet because I arrived a million years before i’m able to check in, so now i’m awkwardly trying to kill some time in the computer room. The receptionist dude also just approved of my accent because it wasnt that Quebecois. Thanks?! Oh and it cost me 35 € for a 10 min taxi ride. Did I just get massively ripped off? Probably.

Until next time!
