First Shoot with the Canon EOS R

Studio V Photography: Hey guys welcome to the vlog. Here are the photos of Rock N’ Roll babe Molly Rennick in her Gold Bikini. We shot these in the the Dominican Republic on the VX2TV Beach Party trip. It was an awesome trip had an awesome time you can check out more video from the trip on the VX2TV YouTube channel.

These shots are from my very first photo shoot with the Canon EOS R. I had pre-ordered the camera and it arrived two days before I took off for the Dominican Republic. I brought it down with me fingers crossed and decided to test it out with Molly. I shot these with no poloraizer or ND filter. I wanted to see how the camera handled the high contrast of the sunset behind the model with no help. Also these images were shot in full rez jpg and edited in Photoshop. Overall I have to say i’m pretty happy with the results considering it was just jpg. Stay tuned more hot photo shoots from the VX2TV Beach party coming soon.

My review video of the Canon EOS R after one week of shooting with the camera.

Bella Ricchi Teaser

Studio V Photography. Here's a little teaser video form a shoot I did with Toronto Hip-Hop artist Bella Ricchi. For those of you who follow my vlog or blog you might remember her form a shoot I did a little white back where we shoot a pictorial for Nin5Four Canada Magazine. That was a fun set. So we got together again and shoot some social media content to pump out there over the next few months. I have a full vlog from the shoot coming soon but for now here is a little time laps teaser video of us doing out thing.

Enjoy, and please subscribe. I'm trying to build up my channel.

Megan Klassen and the G7X

Studio V Photography. So I just picked up a Canon G7X Mark II the other day and I wanted to test it out. I've really gotten excited about the idea of vlogging so that I can share all the fun moments that happen at my photo shoots. I really have no idea what I'm doing at this point with respect to creating vloggs but just as I did with photography, I figure the best thing to do is jump in with both feet, make my mistakes and learn as I go. The fear of failing holds us back so much. I figure failing is part of the learning experience and the experience is what it's all about. . . . So anyway. . . I wanted to test out the new video camera and called Megan Klassen in for a shoot. I met her the year before at an even for Arsenic Magazine and wanted to work with her so that's what I did.

We had a good click right from the get-go and the shoot was a fun experience. It was a little different for me to think in terms of creating photo content then at the same time think about creating video content as well. It was a bit of a challenge but I'm sure I'll get better at it as I do it more often. 

Below I have two vlogs. The first one is a behind the scenes vlog from my shoot with Megan and the second vlog is me doing a time laps edits with Megan's photos.

Enjoy and please subscribe to the youtube channel.

Elias Theodorou

Studio V Photography's first shoot of 2016. Always good to get that first shoot of the year off your back. If this is any indication of the 2016 shooting season it's going to be a really really fun year. Today I had the pleasure of shooting, The Man, The Legend, The Best hair in MMA, Winner of The Ultimate Fighter Canada, Elias Theodorou. What an awesome character. This man just oozes charisma. It's so much fun working with people that are confident in themselves. Only wish I didn't have a time constraint. There is so much more I would have wanted to shoot with him. Regardless of timing we ripped through a few different looks and nailed them all. The images will be used for an editorial feature in VX2 Magazine around the time of Elias' next fight which at this time is yet to be announced. Totally excited to see these images go to print. Here are some low rez teasers shot with my phone. 

Sorry ladies I know you want to see more. I'll post more photos of Elias Theodorou after the publication comes out. Enjoy these for now and stay tuned. 2016 is going to be amazing. 

Jungle Andy

What do you do when you find yourself in the jungle with a gorgeous model? Well you shoot pictures of her that's what! hahahaha. Well if you're Studio V Photography that's the first thing you do. I was shooting down in the Caribbean and I brought Andy with me as an assistant. It's always handy to have a little help when shooting on a location in the middle of nowhere. Andy's always experimenting with things and doodling and coming up with cool ideas. That's probably why I loved having her around. It is fun to be around likeminded individuals. That's the trouble with having a creative state of mind, you're always seeking other creatives to interact with. Everyone else is just to Plain-Jane. But back to the story, this was just a little impromptu shoot for fun while we were in the jungle waiting for the models to get themselves ready. We wanted to experiment with this tassel thing that Andy brought. See what we could come up with and if we wanted to use it for a shoot concept. Having an assistant who's a creative and also a model, Double Rainbow! hahaha. If you got that reference I know you're laughing. 

Magazine Shoot BTS

Today we're off to the Marina again to shoot on the Poco Loco. We have Karlie a beautiful Latina bombshell, Felicity winner of Miss Teen Ontario and Paul the editor in Chief of Nine5Four Canada Magazine. The day started out nice and foggy and I was looking forward to doing something creative in the thick fog but I knew by the time makeup and wardrobe wraps up the fog will be gone. But whatever the weather i'll make it work. 

Here is a little teaser shot of Karlie sitting on the stern of the Poco Loco. She had some killer curves. You guys will love the magazine feature when it comes out. Got some amazing shots of Felicity as well. What an awesome day out in the sun shooting. Can't wait to get these pictures published. You can find more behind the scenes pictures up on my instagram feed. Look up @Studiov14 

So Excited

Only a few more days till I get to shoot on this sexy 74 foot luxury yacht. It's going to be awesome. Super pumped. Shooting an editorial feature for Nine5Four magazine. The model is a relatively new face on the scene but she has so much potential to become huge in the industry if she plays her cards right. Valerie oxx 

Sarah Would Creative

What's better than getting Would once? Getting Would Twice. hahahaha Punny punny. Well not really but I give myself thumbs up for effort. Last week I had the pleasure of working with the lovely Sarah Would. As per usual Sarah arrived at the studio in her bubbly personality and carefree attitude. I cranked up the rock music and we start off with a little catching up. It had been two years since we last worked together and a lot has changed but two years ago feels like it was only yesterday. Sarah opens up her suitcase and clothes explode out onto the couch. As she's showing me the outfits she brought she reaches into her bag and pulls out a tutu. "I don't know why I brought this I just grabbed it and shoved it in my bag" she says to me. In my head i'm thinking we could probably do something cool with that. So we knocked off the concepts we had on our shot list and now it's time to get creative with a the tutu. I wanted the tutu on Sarah's head to create a funky textile afro type shape and lots of character. Sarah put on the tiniest leather jack ever. It barely held in her natural awesomeness'. I used a three hot light setup and a bit of natural light form a partially covered window. My old school 1980's Pioneer SK-31 ghetto blaster also found it's way into the frame. We started shooting and having fun with it. Sarah got into character, I got into the zone and the rest was not important. Other than the noise from the high ISO everything looked awesome. In post production I started getting a little crazy with the cheesewhiz. There were a couple different directions I wanted to take these shots. Ultimately I went with the mirrored image concept and created these. Something different for my portfolio. 

Here is a little Quickie video I made of Sarah posing around in her tutu for STUDIO V TV. This was such a fun shoot. I really love the process of letting loose creatively and allowing imagination to take over. And you know what else I really love, the relationships I develop with, I want to call them models but to me they are people like everyone else. Two years with no communication and we reconnect like we were old friends. That's a testament to the type of bond I build with the people I work with.

Arsenic Magazine Submission Shoot

Exciting News. A good friend of mine Adam Julian called me the other day with some exciting news. He's organizing another submission shoot for Arsenic Magazine and this time i'm getting involved in the fun. Myself and fellow photographer Daniel Camer will be shooting some sexy ladies at a hot venue in downtown Toronto. The shoot will be broadcast via Snapchat to thousands of people across the social media interweb. We are casting 8 solid models for the shoot. Everyone on my mailing list will get an invite to apply for the casting. If you're not on my mailing list you're going to have to find it the hard way on my Facebook page. We're selecting models ASAP as the shoot is in a few days.

Sarah Balint

Score another one for Studio V Photography. Shooting the beautiful LA based model Sarah Balint. This was an exciting shoot. We got a hold of a beautiful location for our shoot thanks to another photographer. He was house sitting his parents place and invited myself and Sarah to come shoot at the house. These are pictures from the first look we shot. Second look I'm saving for publication submission.  

For the first look I got lucky the house had a beautiful living room with a south facing window. So I decided to go with a natural light look. I posed sarah by the window first than on the couch using a speedlight as a fill flash when needed. I'm really happy with the way the images came out and am looking forward to shooting Sarah again sometime. Hopefully she comes back to Toronto again soon.
