If you are a photogenic couple and you are interested in doing a photo shoot, romantic and lifestyle concepts, I look forward to hearing from you. I will be doing it free of charge and you will receive a few prints from each session. Any ages and ethnicities will be considered, however, your look is very important, so please send me a couple of your recent photographs, preferably where you are together. If you have a pretty location for the shoot, like a nicely decorated room, a small garden, a cottage, that would be even better. I will be able to reply only to those whose looks fit the requirements, and we can discuss the details on that stage.
If you have property in Toronto, GTA or within 2 hrs from Toronto, that could be interesting as a photo shoot location, it could be a nicely decorated house, a cottage, a farm, a garden, or maybe you own a business, have an office, a workshop or a studio (not a commercial photo studio) that has a potential as a photo shoot location suitable for fashion, commercial, lifestyle or other concepts, and you would be interested in offering it for a photo shoot, I would appreciate if you could give me more details, its location and photos.
Please also let me know if you would be willing to offer it in exchange for photographs or prints for your personal use or for your business, or a reasonable hourly rate.
As soon as I posted the ‘Tea party’ photo shoot I felt it’s necessary to mention its sister shoot I’ve done in 2010. Both of them have food and fashion as the main elements of the concept, but that’s probably where the similarity ends. This is one of my most favorite photo shoots to date. I love the dramatic historic feel of it. This is where fashion and fine art meet.

Tea party with a beautiful asian hostess Josie at a table served with desserts and accessories. The settings took a few hours to create but it was well worth it. Thanks to the help of everyone involved, we managed to pull it with impeccable quality. The edible part of the set didn’t last long after the shoot.

1990s – the beginning of the rejection of fashion. The popularity of grunge and alternative rock music also helped bring the simple, unkempt grunge look mainstream. (wikipedia)
