BLK LBL VLOG 006 - PHOTOS & BTS

Alberta is home to some of the most amazing natural landscapes, and Pincher Creek County is no exception. 

A 5:30am call time, amazing weather (although crazy chilly), untouched landscape, and the kind of sunrise that dreams are made of, all made for the perfect recipe to pull off this shoot exactly as we had imagined it. We had 2 hours from the time the sun peaked over the hill tops to get all of the looks we needed before the light turned to shit. We made it just under the wire.

BLK LBL is the client we were shooting for, and what they've done is created a new style of bi-pod for the AR-15. The purpose of the shoot was to show how efficient and discreet the bi-pod is when attached to the gun, and the photography will be used for future ads and marketing materials. 

The entire shoot was done with the Fuji X-Pro2, which performs crazy well in these lighting conditions, using mostly the XF 16mm f/1.4 and a little of the XF 35mm f/2, 

Here are a few of the images from the shoot, larger versions available in my portfolio:

And of course, a full BTS video from the shoot:

Graham Construction

Sometime in the beginning of August my wife and I were driving and we passed by a Graham Construction sign, at which time I told her that I needed to figure out a way to add them to my client list. Having grown up around Estevan, SK, which is always undergoing some form of construction, I've grown up seeing Graham Construction signs all over the place my entire life.  Coincidentally, two weeks later I got a phone call from an agency in Calgary that was working with Graham and wanted me to bid a multi-day job shooting a bunch of portrait work for the company. Boom. Graham was very specific about wanting to use their actual employees for the portraits to best represent who they are as a company, so we spent a couple of days shooting at the head office in Calgary as well as at one of their construction sites downtown.

Here are a few of the portraits we created during that time:

And some behind the scenes, because well... who doesn't love behind the scenes.
