I wasn't able to share too much about this prior to the shoot as we wanted to keep things quiet. However, I am so excited to finally share the news... A team that I have recently collaborated with was presented with an amazing opportunity to shoot at the Canadian Museum of Making. No crew has ever shot models there before, so I am extremely humbled and consider this to be quite the honor! Not only were we able to shoot here, but the owner was also kind enough to allow a few of us in for a private museum tour prior to shooting. I was one of the lucky few in the crew to go on the tour a few weeks ago and it was such a cool experience. I took some photos during the tour that I will share and create a separate blog post about later!
The museum is full of many wonderful pieces. However, the main focus is the wide variety of machinery and tools used in the 1800 and early 1900's, so we wanted to bring the feel of those eras back to life for a day. With models, makeup artists, a hair stylist, photographers and wardrobe stylists on set, we all worked extremely hard to collaborate on making this vintage inspired shoot a hit. The end result was incredible, and I can't wait to share the final product once the professional photos are ready! In the meantime here is a sneak peek of @thelightstalker capturing all of the models together during one of the final scenes before we called it a wrap! I apologize for the poor quality as it was taken with my phone. I had to share something though.
Cheers to everyone involved for making it such a success! 🙌🏻
