A video about my creative shoot

I did a creative shoot in April and I asked my friend Sara Jewell if she would like to film a little promotional video for me.

Sara is so talented and I am so grateful to be surrounded by so many amazing creative people. I love the video she has created for me and I am happy to share this film with you.

Pushing my creativity with Alvina

Pushing my creativity with Alvina

Pushing my creativity with Alvina in Edmonton, AB.

As a photographer, I always try to push myself and to push my creativity and this is what I did with Alvina, at the end of last year in Edmonton. We did that portrait shoot in my apartment in Edmonton and it was great to create for me.

Alvina is a make-up artist, a student, a model. She is a creative herself, so it was great to collaborate with her on that session. I never saw someone posing so easily and being so intense while also being so natural and peaceful.

As usual, I kept my posing pretty simple and minimalist. The only things I wanted to use for this session were this black stool and the white curtains. They are both from IKEA and they are super cheap! Hahaha! I also shot a little bit under-exposed, so my images have lots of grain. It was starting to be very dark in the end, but I actually like the results.

I edited these images with the Wolf Pack presets by Tribe Archipelago. Those are my all-time favourite presets.

After shooting with the old red car, Tara told me one of her friends has a VW bus that she would let us use for the shoot. So we headed there and let me tell you, we were not disappointed. That Volkswagen van was a gem! The colour was perfect.

The gazelle and the old red car

The gazelle and the old red car by Emilie Iggiotti

I have this thing with old cars and I can’t help it. I love old cars. And I really wanted to do a shoot with an old car but I did not know anyone who had an old car with lots of character.

Then I met my friend Tara (aka Akward Gazelle on Instagram) and one day, as I was watching one of her stories on Instagram, I saw that she is in a very fancy red car. I asked her whose car it was, and she said that it is her boyfriend’s car. Then I said: would you mind doing a shoot with me with that car? And she said yes!

So, fast forward a few months later, when we were finally able to find a date and plan the photo session. We had lots of fun!

I must add something: Tara did all the styling of that session. She has such great taste and an amazing style. It’s so easy to collaborate with her. She just comes up with these amazing outfits. So, all you have to do is pose her and take photos. Seriously, this is unbelievable. I am trying to convince her to become a stylist for all my shoots. Haha!

If you think she has great style, please say it in the comments!
