It’s here! D.I.Y. Summer Sessions!

DIY Summer Sessions are something I try to do every year. This is the first year I am promoting and giving it a name.

BOOK. REHEARSE. STYLE. POSE. PRO

It’s quite simple! You book your session! We pick a look. You go home, plan it out and rehearse. Day of photo session, you deck yourself out, style your hair, put on your bling, show up for your session, pose and we capture you for 30-60 minutes.

THIS SEEMS STRANGE. WHY D.I.Y.?

I designed this session for those who have difficulty affording a professional photographer for great photographs. This session eliminates large costs such as, studio time, styling, hairstylists and makeup artists. You can do it all on your own and let me capture what you created.

Creatives: Casting Call: Models, MUA’s and Hairstylists

 

I had a fantastic weekend, visiting Hamilton, Ontario. I never like the city, but I discovered an incredible world there and now I know why a good amount of artists, head out here.

Having discovered the gorgeous layout of specific areas in Hamilton, Ontario. I am looking to shoot in the Hamilton area this Spring and Summer.

I am looking for a team to collaborate with to turn a group of series I have planned into photographs.

MODELS

I am looking for male and female models who are looking to create or add to their portfolio. Your aspiration must be to become a model, this isn’t for those looking to model for ‘fun.’

Actor’s and Fashion: James Franco

 

I must say I dig thick textures when it comes to men’s wear. I dig fall and spring season. Which bring out thick fabrics for suits, jackets and scarves, all of it, just excites me. James Franco looks remarkable in Gucci! All Franco fans love him for this reason, as he has this classic look that comes head on with this contemporary feel.

This suit is fantastic, and reminds me of the suits my father and grandfather used to wear, they are beautiful even now for the modern man.

I haven’t liked a pin striped suit on a man in ages. But this… has won me over:

The pervading mindset of luxury fashion seems to be: “If it’s not custom, it doesn’t touch skin.” Now Gucci has announced an extensive new made-to-measure service, with a mind-boggling selection of 82 fabrics (including baby llama) and the option to embroider your initials on the label, as well as commission shirts and shoes. To promote the offering, which will be available at boutiques in eleven cities worldwide including London, Gucci has also unveiled a new ad campaign called “All The World’s A Stage”. It stars James Franco wearing a variety of perfectly fitting suits including this check one – and the look of a man who laughs to scorn off-the-peg throughout. – GQ

Truthfully, I even enjoy Franco’s off magazine/spotlight look.Which is me on my ‘on the go’ days, a t.shirt and jeans, swap the phone for an SLR , and swap the blue hoodie with a yellow one, and the baseball cap with a cute knitted one to fit my curls and it’s me, so I’m all for it.

Peter Adrian – A Great Addition to Mens Fashion Conciousness

I stumbled across a photo of Peter Adrian on Tumblr, someone had shared one of his looks from his lookbook.nu page and of course it showed up on my dash. I clicked and was very happy to find a full fledge blog on all of his wardrobe choices. He is an aspiring, model, actor, artist and dancer from LA.

Men in my area, are lacking in the fashion department. If I ever find a willing participant to stand I will snap a picture to show you the khaki’s with all the pockets, wrinkled and doing nothing for their figure, with a striped tee from Old Navy. It’s terrible. Or a Bright banana yellow shirt with black pants with a red stripe (Nike track pants!) Oh dear, so boring and men’s fashion! So exciting! Why not dive in? Need a little help? Lookbook.nu is fantastic, and if you just need a nudge, Peter Adrian works with great photographers and has a nice collection of his wardrobe choices!

I find I consistently love his shoe choice, and layer choice (jacket etc). I’ll probably be posting his work again, just to share it so be sure to stop by again!

 

So finding his page, I think it has a great selection of a young but affordable wardrobe for 20 somethings. Check it out and see! His links, Facebook, Blogger.
