Photography of the Latin avant garde design in full body paint, makeup and fashion design by Chau Le. I had the pleasure of working with Chau Le for her competition at the Heineken event in Vancouver BC, her design was a latin / sugar scull / avant garde mix of reds oranges and yellows on a beautiful model.
The fashion shoot was done on location using a medium size soft box and working with my workhorse lens setup of the 24-70 and 180mm f2.8 and speedlights for photos. The location being a busy downtown bar did not allow for an easy approach as there was both spray, and patrons and bodypaint all in close proximity, and funny enough I ended up leaving my wallet on top of a jukebox (which I used as a way to level my flash for a hair light on the model).
You can check out the photos included here and also check out the youtube videos of the shoot, behind the scenes and my editing work as well in post production in photoshop.
