Daniel Cianfarra and his Swimsuits

Daniel Cianfarra and his Swimsuits

Daniel Cianfarra warms us up a little with his gorgeous photographs for the Everyday Sunday bathing suit campaign, which transports you to Turks and Caicos with its mysterious and heady ambiance.

It was nearing the end of the day at the shoot when Daniel and his team spotted some (harmless) sharks! We laughed when our client took off running each time we shouted “shark”! She fell for it every time!  And since they were without a photo assistant, the hair and make-up artist was holding the reflector with a comb in her mouth!

The goal was to create a dream or a post card…  which was difficult because they felt right at home with all the Canadians and Montrealers that were there!

Now let yourself be soothed by these images and pretend it’s the weekend!.

37 Days of Photography

37 Days of Photography

I’m still new to the whole travelling photographer thing and I had spent many months planning my latest trip that would see me gone for over a month. It taught me a lot and I gained a lot of experience. I’ve also worn down the brand new wheels on my Thinktank Photo Roller Derby.

This was my second trip to Europe in 5 months. This time I covered the World Equestrian Games in Normandy France, the Rescue 2014 International Lifesaving Championships in Montpellier France and part of the Canadian Show jumping Tournament at the fantastic Caledon Equestrian Park in Ontario (host of the Pan Am 2015 Games). Two solid weeks of being surrounded by the world’s best equestrian photographers was intimidating but exciting. A week later, I attended the Rescue 2014 event. I was to photograph team Canada for the Lifesaving Society of Canada. From what I could tell, I was the only professional photographer in attendance for the beach events which allowed me to get some incredibly unique shots while standing in the choppy ocean working on my sun tan. Finally I headed back to Ontario to not only shoot the last big outdoor Equestrian event of the year but to also check out the facilities, lighting, angles and backgrounds of the venue that is hosting the equestrian events at the 2015 Pan Am Games. I came home exhausted and happy. I’m already planning my next shooting assignment!

I asked Leeva: how does one go about to acquire such a plane? They explained that often, aircrafts change owners. They bought this one and sent it to a company specialized in refurbishing aircrafts for luxury clients… sort of Pimp my Pilatus experts.

“PIÈCES À CONVICTION” [Incriminating Evidence] by Stéphane Najman

 

“PIÈCES À CONVICTION” [Incriminating Evidence] by Stéphane Najman

The book of photographs “Pièces à conviction” [Incriminating Evidence] by Stéphane Najman transports you directly to the core of humanity. It captures nothing more or less than its protagonists views on the passage of time. The photographer’s fine work is highlighted by insightful and poetic text. In addition, a documentary by Charlie Marois depicts this in-depth look into the private lives of a number of Montrealers and is offered to you free of charge. The launch will take place on October 2 at 6:00 p.m. at Espace 40 Mile End.

“Pièces à conviction” is the product six years of work. It is also a photographer’s perspective on time that has passed after 30 years in the profession and being well on his way to half a century. Stéphane Najman freezes reality by bringing forth the proof and suggesting the trial. The project accompanies the models on their internal journeys with disarming sensitivity. The models find themselves naked and facing their past and present realities, which can be troubling, joyful, unexpected, and occasionally, very surprising.
