Classical Guitar Goodness: Altius Duo

Up today: some Classical Guitar goodness with Altius Duo (Chad Yacobucci & Adam Batstone) based right here in Toronto.

I was also pleased to learn that Chad is now the director of the Guitar Orchestra to the Toronto Guitar Society now in it's 4th year! Small world....

Keep up to date with Chad and Adam including performance dates on their brand-spanking new website due out soon.

Behind the Scenes: Red Dress Twirl (a peek under the dress...)

UPDATE: Take a look at some of the creative process over at Retouching Academy.

The positive feedback on last week's Red Dress Twirl post has been wonderful and everyone is curious about how we came up with the dress. To satisfy that curiosity, we thought it might be easier - and hopefully more entertaining - to put together a short video.

Red Dress Twirl

Girl can twist & twirl a dress like nobody's business! [Update: click here for a peek under the dress!]

This is actually a part II and you might recognize Marife from our testing session not long ago where I tried my best to explain the concept of this photo above.

Amazing makeup by Maria Velve and technical assisting by Cristy. And a huge thank you to both of them for helping with wardrobe as well - you might be surprised how much effort it takes to organize a dress made to fit a 9 foot-tall Venezuelan model!

I think this might have been the very last photo shoot we did in my old studio just off the Queen West strip. Looking forward to future adventures in my new studio at 401 Richmond!
