I recently had the wonderful opportunity to capture a brand session for Kirk and Steph, two incredibly talented artists who are gearing up to showcase their work at Saskatoon's Nuit Blanche event. As a photographer, I love being able to collaborate with artists and visually tell their stories.
During this session, we wanted to capture the essence of Kirk and Steph's artistic vision. We aimed for a stylish and timeless feel, akin to a cinematic experience. Drawing inspiration from film photography, we wanted to create images that are visually captivating and will stand the test of time.
To achieve this, we carefully selected locations that complemented the artists' work and added depth to the overall narrative. We also paid close attention to lighting, using a mix of natural light and strategically placed artificial sources to create a sense of drama and intrigue.
We worked together to curate their outfits and props, ensuring they aligned with their artistic expressions. The colors and textures in their clothing added another layer of visual interest to the photos, enhancing the overall cinematic feel we were aiming for.
Throughout the session, I encouraged Kirk and Steph to express their creativity and unique personalities. By capturing candid moments and genuine interactions, we were able to bring their artistry to life and show their genuine passion for their craft.
As a photographer, my goal is to create images that not only document but also evoke emotion. I want viewers to feel a connection to the subjects and their work. With Kirk and Steph, this was particularly important, as their exhibition will be a culmination of their artistic journey, and we wanted to provide a glimpse into that journey through our photographs.
Overall, this brand session was a true collaboration between artists. By incorporating stylistic elements, drawing inspiration from film, and striving for timelessness, we created a collection of images that reflect Kirk and Steph's artistic vision. I feel truly honored to have been a part of this process, and I can't wait to see their work showcased at Saskatoon's Nuit Blanche event.
