Men’s fashion has long been a sort of side passion of mine from portraiture. I find men’s fashion to allow for more character driven storyboards, models with unique and unconventional features as well as a flexibility with location due to not needing a team of stylists, make up artists, hair people and assistants to get a shoot done. Case in point was the shoot I did using the incredibly hip and stylish clothes from JacFlash (1036 Queen West).
After some time spent casting, I decided on a model with a unique style and interesting features. He delivered as far as internalizing my directions to create a shoot that was visually dynamic.
The shoot was picked up by Desirable magazine who was doing a feature on male models and was published in it’s June Issue.
I am not known for my studio photography but I felt the clothes and model were captivating enough without needing to add a strong background. And the minamilist gray (which I love) gave a good contrast in its simplicity, enhancing the contrast created by understated lighting against the styling and model’s look..
