Wanted to thank Vistek, Elinchrom and AstroLab Studios Inc. for having me share my photographic journey.  And a special thanks to everyone that came out to share their evening with me. The event was amazing, I was touched by all the Instagram messages.

My aim is always to inspire and I hope I achieved that. I can’t wait for my next opportunity share my love and passion for photography with you.

A sample from my recent portrait session with Maylin Aguirre @fashionmodel.it from Milano, Italia. We have been trying to coordinate a shoot for over 4 years and finally the stars connected in 2018. Photographed with the NIKON D4 and lit by Elinchrom ELB400 w/ a Rotalux 100cm Octobox.

WE REMEMBER

Had the privilege of photographing and chatting with Maj. J. Estrela, an Army officer in the Royal Canadian Corps of Signals, this past Rememberance Day. Special thanks to Royal Canadian Military Institute for hosting us and Robert Baines of The NATO Assoication of Canada for helping me put this together. I am currently looking for funding for a project to photograph and document the stories of 400 veterans from across Canada. I hope this is the first portrait of many to come. Thank you Maj. Estrela for your time, service and sacrifice.

FINALLY GOT MY HANDS ON THE ELB1200s

So after a long wait, I finally got my hands on the Elinchrom‘s New ELB 1200s with a Pro and Action head.

From the jump, this is not your daddy’s Ranger RX. It’s light, it’s small and it’s super powerful. One thing I really like was that Elinchrom took time and designed the new ELB 1200s to survive photographers like me, they really went to town to weatherproof and create a durable product.

The heads themselves are impressive from design to weight. Sadly I couldn’t get my hands on a HS head but hopefully soon.

Check out some of the shots from my test shoot.

Special thanks to Vistek for lending me the ELB 1200s. Can’t wait to get a set of my own.
