On Location

OTM Winter Issue Shoot

This past Monday, I had the opportunity to work with Off The Map  Webzine and shoot an editorial for their winter issue with an amazing model from Nicole from Spot 6 Management, who just recently walked in the Chanel show, Cory Vanderploeg taking the photos and Liz Robertson from Ford Artists doing the makeup and hair.

There was wardrobe from Pink Tartan, Izma, Vawk, Symthe, Erin Kleinberg, American Apparel, Club Monaco, Jonathan + Olivia, as well as some amazing vintage from The Cat’s Meow including vintage Chanel!!!

Here are a few behind the scenes shots from shooting on location in Hamilton.

Location shoots: not the most glamorous for wardrobe stylists or the models. Our wardrobe room is the car for the clothes, shoes and accessories as well as the change room, especially when it was as cold as it was this past Monday…Canada Goose weather all the way.

Some of the fabulous wardrobe all organized and getting ready to be packed up and returned to the designers and stores.

As one can see it is not always very glamorous shooting editorials. It was a long and cold day in Hamilton, but I can definitely say it was worth it…the images are incredible. The issue of OTM will be coming out December 15th. I will post a link along with the editorial so the final images can be viewed. Tara and Aimee are two brilliant editors and Nicole and Liz made the day worthwhile, and I say Nicole was definitely a trooper and a supermodel in the making on set considering how long we shot and how cold it was.
