I recently shot Nicole from Next Models Canada with an amazing crew. Nadia Pizzimenti styled the fall fashion and Tami El Sombati did an amazing job on makeup and hair. Nicole is great fun and i knew i had to shoot her after seeing her in person during my casting for Separated. I submitted this fashion story of Nicole to over 50 magazines, so we will see if it gets picked up. Either way, it’s an great addition to my book.
People often ask me how i choose my locations. The answer is pretty simple, i look for locations daily during my travels around the city. i make mental notes of spots i’d like to come back to. Sometimes i shoot images of special spots, mark them on my iPhone’s GPS and use them to show my stylists and clients. For larger productions, i do a location scout, shoot images and put a package together of different places and send them to the client. They choose the spot they like the best and that becomes the location for the editorial.
I like to keep my locations secret or i try to shoot certain known locations in a way that i haven’t seen before. Here is a short Behind the Scenes of Under the Bridge. See the full Spread at SteveCarty.com
