VX2 Magazine Issue 14 Cover Shot by Studio V Photography

Check this out, that's a pretty hot cover if I can say so myself. Toronto hip-hop artist Bella Ricchi shot by yours truly Studio V Photography for the cover of VX2 Magazine. One of my favourite shots of Bella Ever. I know this cover image has been posted on social media before but inside the magazine are a handful of new, never before seen, edits from this shoot as well as an interview with Bella herself.

Tanisha Amber shot for VX2 Magazine

Here is a a photo of stunning Canadian model Tanisha Amber shot by Studio V Photography and published on the pages of VX2 Magazine. This shoot was the first time I met Tanisha and wow did she leave an impression. She's got so much character she should be on video not in pictures. We were kinda rushed so I didn't shoot her for as long as I would have liked. But keeping my fingers crossed she might be flying with VX2 Magazine down to Cuba for a week of shooting in the sun. So if all goes well I'll be working with her again really soon.

VX2 Magazine Volume2 Issue1 Cover

Studio V Photography. I'm excited to announce that I got the cover of the current issue of VX2 Magazine. I had the pleasure of working with the beautiful Dani Galli last summer. We shot a beautiful set just before sunset. The light was nice and defused. It was a perfect afternoon for a shoot. I'm very happy with the shots and so was the magazine. They were so happy in fact they put the a picture on the cover. I'm really happy with these shots.

Sarah Scotford Published in VX2 Magazine

Studio V Photography / I shot these beautiful shots of Sarah Scotford back in 2010. But back then I was editing my photos in a super high contrast vibrant edgy style. That style was cool back in 2010 but now it's 2016 and that edgy look is no longer in vogue. So a few months ago I showed the original edits to the editor of VX2 Magazine and he loved them. But when I sent him the images he told me they were only 72dpi. Needless to say the images were too small for print. At first I was a little miffed because I loved this set but soon spun things around realizing that this was just a great opportunity to re-edit these shots in a more contemporary style. And so I did and I love this set even more now and they look amazing printed in the magazine. I'm so happy with the way these came out.

If you want to book a submission shoot contact your favorite Toronto glamour photographer and book a session. I'm always game for getting more work published. :)

Bella Ricchi In Nine5Four Canada Magazine

Studio V photography. Wooohooo exciting news. My photos of Bella Ricchi are published in Nine5Four Canada Magazine. whaaaaaat!!! Sweet! Ya I'm pretty excited. Bella is a Toronto area Hip-Hop and RnB artist. She was so much fun to work with. Lots of laugh and positivity all around. She's got a killer body and lots of attitude. On a personal level I think it's so awesome to support local talent. I feel like we've really got to support our own and put Toronto on the global map. Enjoy the pictures.

Karli Sal in VX2 Magazine

Studio V Photography. This summer we shot this set of Nine5Four Canada Magazine but that's not where these images ended up. I'm excited to announce that I have a Karli Sal photo set published in VX2 Magazine. I didn't edit these shots, don't judge me. lol. I was so busy last summer the magazine farmed out the edits to get them done. It’s not up to my standards but I’m happy to have the photos published. You can check out some behind the scenes shots from the shoot here. It was an awesome shoot. Nothing like hanging out by the lake with some beautiful models and getting creative on a hot summer day. Click here to see photos form this set that I actually edited.   

Inside Fitness Hot & Fit Issue

I was browsing through a pile of old magazines sitting around the studio and found this gem. WBFF superstar Bree Lind in the Inside Fitness Magazine Hot & Fit 2012 issue. Pretty sweet. Never gets old seeing this stuff. This dates back to before I rebranded to Studio V Photography. Bree was a lot of fun to shoot. To bad she's from Calgary or I'd shoot her a lot more often. 

Nine5Four Canada Magazine - Journey

I had the pleasure of working with Journey on a photo shoot for Nine5Four Canada Magazine. She did some modeling when she was younger than took some time away from it all. Now she's back and trying her hand at glamour modeling. Studio V Photography thinks this beautiful Native American model has a lot of potential. If she makes the right moves and builds up her experience she could create a name for herself. She's got the right look she just needs to put herself in a position to succeed. And of course it's always exciting when I see my images in a publication. So cheers to that! Another magazine feature for Studio V. I'm excited, looking forward to more. 

Nine5Four Canada Magazine - Megan Powell

Studio V Photography and Playboy Model Megan Powell featured in Nine5Four Canada Magazine. 

This past July I had the pleasure of working with Megan Powell on a beautiful luxury yacht. This is the shoot that almost didn't happen. It was a hot sticky day in the city and I couldn't wait to feel the cool breeze out on the water. Paul the magazine editor, Sarah Ve the Makeup artist, Swimwear designer Tatiana Vano and the models all met up at the marina parking lot ready to head out on the water but our yacht was missing. That's a new one to add to the list of #PhotographerProblems (Read that story here) Eventually we sorted out the, kinda important, no boat situation, and we were off into the cool refreshing lake breeze. We spent the afternoon out on the lake weaving between the Toronto islands looking for good spots to shoot. I got fantastic shots of Megan doing her thing all over the boat. That polarizer sure came in handy shooting in the bright summer sun. I was really happy with the way the shots came out. Megan is such a silly playful personality it was really refreshing working with her. I hope to run into more models like here. As the chief photographer for Nine5Four Canada Magazine i'm sure I will. :) 

Hahahaha love this pic. Everyone is working on something and than there's Megan with her tongue out. lol. 

Marianne D'Vaz in VX2 Magazine

I'm excited to show off these pictures. I haven't worked with Marianne D'Vaz in years!!!! When the Editor of VX2 Magazine called me and said he had lined up a shoot with her I was stoked. We spent the day cruising around on a beautiful yacht shooting sexy photos for the magazine. Plus on top of all that I get to see my photos in print. It was so cool to work with Marianne again. I really missed her vibe. Hopefully we get to work together again soon. 

If you were following me on instagram you would have seen the story from this shoot @studiov14

Mayra Beachwear Collection

I recently had the pleasure of working with Mayra from www.mayracollection.com for a second time. Woohooo. She wanted some new photo content for her webpage and this time she brought WBFF Fitness Diva Selena Stevens to model her bikinis. Myra was adamant about shooting on a blue background and lucky for her I have a recently painted blue textured wall at the studio. It worked out perfectly.  

Well it turns out Selena is a riot. Totally awesome to work with and full of laughs. Mayra was on point in serious business mode. But that didn't last to long. The conversation was light and fun and the laughs came often. Before long we hit our stride, everyone was happy and all the shots were winners. You know It's a funny thing, literally, when everyone is smiling on set all the pictures come out amazing. Maybe i'm really newage with my thinking but when the fun is flowing it changes the energy in the room and everything becomes better. It's so hard to take a bad shot when you're having fun. Than before you know it the designer and the model turn the shoot into a dance party. hahahaha. #TrueStory  

If you're a fitness competitor go check out www.mayracollection.com Mayra sews all her bikinis herself and she's a perfectionist which means you're probably going to get an awesome product for your stage show. I haven't seen one bikini from her that I didn't like. Oh and she also made those wings too. How cool is that. 

Playboy Playmate Tailor James

Studio V Photography Tailor James magazine

A few years ago I had the pleasure of working with Canadian Playboy Playmate Tailor James. She was absolutely awesome not only as a model but as a person. Had so much fun working with her we're still friends to this day. It's so rare to find a model who can turn her eyes on like Tailor can. Being good at posing is great but if you can emote with your eyes that takes your modeling to the next level. For all you models reading this take my advice. Practice getting your eyes into character in front of the mirror. If you can master that skill it will help your portfolio. 

I'll write a more in-depth post later about working with Tailor James and post my favourite pictures from the shoot. This post is more about the publication. So ya, got published in Kandy Magazine. Woohoooo. *fist pump* *happy dance* OK nobody needs to imagine that. hahaha. I've been published so many times but it never gets old seeing my images in print. 

Enjoy the spread.
