I wanted to do something fun, something creative, and something challenging! This photo was only a vision in my head until I had the help of so many wonderful people in the Halifax photography industry.
It started out with my fellow photographer friend Mike Phang and I talking about interesting ideas to shoot. He had the awesome idea of doing a spread like you see in Vanity Fair when they put out the “Oscar Nominees” or “Best Of” for the year. But then the ideas started to evolve into something that wasn’t so focused on the people in the picture, but rather a story in the image. Mike had been shooting behind the scenes of many of my shoots, so I thought, why not shoot a moment in behind the scenes, but just replace everyone with models?
I was very lucky to have so many people wanting to be involved, and I am also very thankful to be given the space and time to create this image.
