Through the helter skelter morning…

“Looking through a broken diamond
To make the past what it should be
Through the ruins and the weather
Capsized boats in the sea
O deserts down below us
And storms up above
Like a stray dog gone defective
Like a paper tiger in the sun”

Beck “Paper Tiger”

Portraits of my friend Lisa are some of my favourites. She just has this classic look to her that seems to transition so well to photography. All of these are from 2008 if you can believe it. They were shot with one of my oldest digital cameras, the quality is surprising good considering what I was using.  I’ve been looking at a lot of my older photography lately because I am putting up various photographs to my Society6 page to sell for prints. Going through all my photos to find ones I think people will purchase is an odd experience and it also takes a really long time. But it helps when I run across photos that remind me of a really fun afternoon with one of my friends.

Love looks away in the harsh light of day…

A look back at few classic portraits in my collection, these were shot in 2008 with model and photography Lisa-Michelle. I cherise this set of photos, we had a much needed adventure near her house and spent a few hours getting shots of each other. We have an amazing photo shoot planned for next week when I visit Vancouver – it should be really fun not only to see Michelle but to get the chance to take photos of her. She is very lovely and great at being a model, I wish I could say the same for me. Poor Michelle has to deal with the fact I hate smiling in photos and…lets just say I make the worst model. I promised her I’d pratice before coming out (lets just say I haven’t but I’m confident I can at least not look angry in every shot). When I do photo shoots I love it just being a hang out and just let everything progress naturally. It always works best with Michelle because we both are photographers so we both think about the shoots and know what the other one is trying to accomplish with a shot. I am very excited for next week and promise a sneak peak in my 365 photo a day project. Enjoy her beauty in the meantime!

Where I End and You Begin

lisamichelle (4), citizen erased, citizen erased photographyThis photo shoot is one of my favourites, its from 2007 which feels like a century ago. This beautiful lady is my friend Lisa-Michelle, she`s a fellow photographer and one of my favourite models. We love going on little adventures together and take photos of each other. She has taken really great photos of me even though I am not comfortable poising for other people`s photos. She probably has a nice collection of me making mean frown faces for that exact reason, lol. I am enjoying looking back at these photos, I hope you do too!

I have a lot of older photos taken of Lisa-Michelle so she’s reappear again at some point. I enjoy doing these Thursday Flashbacks to previous photo shoots I’ve done in the past. I haven’t had much chance in the last few years to do more for Citizen Erased Photography. I am pretty shy, and since moving to Montreal without my usual friends around to rope into photoshoots I’m at a lose of who to take photos of. I’m really hoping to get some people to model for me this year as it’d be great to show you more current portrait photography (beside my cat, lol)
