She is taking Hollywood by storm!

I had the pleasure of working with actress, Katheryn Winnick, for another editorial for TORO Magazine.  This Sultry siren shares the screen with Paul Giamatti in Cold Souls, a dark comedy about Giamatti’s fictional alter ego, and Killers starring Katherine Heigl and Ashton Kutcher.

And…of course, it’s always a pleasure to work with Toronto’s Top Glamour Photographer, Mr. Philip Brideaux, this time we shot at the amazing Loki Lounge, the perfect setting for the stylish wardrobe by Christine Vieira, for The Artist Group Ltd. Christine pulled pieces from Canadian designers such as, Andy Thê-Anh, and jewellery from the Alynne Lavigne Collection, as well as, pieces by Jimmy Choo and Sonia Rykiel for H&M.

I created a Classy but Sexy makeup look for Katheryn, using all metallic eyeshadows. She had such smooth and flawless skin, all she needed was light foundation and a little highlight! I wanted to bring more attention to her eyes,we achieved this by adding a pair of “naughty & spiky” false lashes. Then added a coat of gun metal lacquer on her finger nails for a finishing touch! Click here for the full story.

Although the holidays have long been over. Still can’t over how fun it was to shoot Toro Magazine’s Lingerie Editorial. Take look at some of the behind the scenes photos with Priscilla Caripan and Eikona Photography. Thank you again to Candace French for helping me out on set that day!

Plus a video shot and edited by Toro’s video Producer, Tony Felgueiras.

I was booked to groom a country musician who needed promotional photos. I assumed it would  just be an ordinary day on set, but boy was I caught of guard.

I arrived at Photographer Victor Tavares‘ studio, to find out it was, Johnny Reid.

This soft spoken musician brought his guitar as a prop for one of his photo sets. During down time, he played his guitar and sang for us. It was like nothing that I had heard before. His powerful voice filled the entire white concrete studio. He sang with passion and his sincerity, his artistry truly inspired me. I was also fortunate enough to meet Johnny’s mother, who was also on set.  You can tell that his mother was so proud of him, as she listened to him sing. Here are some of the photos from our shoot!

My first impression of Johnny, was that he looked like the friendly guy next door…with a Scottish accent. I thought, pretty distinct for a country artist, but it was his talent, passion for music, and his love for his family that truly made him unique.

I recently watched the 2009 CCMA Awards, I am so happy that Johnny’s hard work has paid off!

He is the recipient of the 6 awards, Album of the Year, Male Artist of the Year, Fans’ Choice Award, CMT Video of the Year, Top Selling Canadian Album, and Songwritters. Go Johnny Go!
