KIMIKO

I wanted to simplify things and do an easy shoot..no makeup and hair or stylist needed, shoot for about an hour, and use one light.
I asked Kimiko, who is a hairstylist at Heartbreaker Salon, to come by.. she brought along Jude (who’s an awesome tattoo artist), and some breakfast buns from Save On Meats. Great way to start a shoot by eating breakfast and chatting for a bit! 😀
Except for the last 2 shots. I used the Elinchrom 150cm indirect octa and a black/white V-flat for fill, or to add contrast to the image. Gridded head on the other two photos.
Kimiko rocked it like a true supermodel, and then her and Jude ran off through Gastown to celebrate Whiskey Wednesday!

J-BIZ – Testing Elinchrom Ranger RX Speed AS

Aaron Aubrey Photography Vancouver | Vancouver Photographer

I first met Jamie through my buddy Tom in grade 8. The second time I saw him, he was wearing weird pants and two-tone vintage dress shoes.
To say he’s a character is an understatement, which is probably why we’ve kept him around for so long 😉
We grew up skateboarding together and all three of us moved to Vancouver from Calgary at roughly the same time, me for music, Tom for film, and Jamie for art…Jamie’s art is just mind-bogglingly crazy, and what amazes me even more, is how much he has produced over the years.
I hit him up to hang out so I could test out my new Elinchrom Ranger RX Speed AS kit that I bought off the talented Thomas Dagg in Toronto.
FYI..His best line when I’m waiting for it to arrive: “Just wait till you find out I sent you phone books!”..ha!
Anyways, I tossed the pack, head, reflector, and my camera body into my bag, and brought lenses in a separate bag as we were trekking by foot.
The kit didn’t feel that heavy on my back, and it wasn’t too tiring to deal with, even though we were out in 27C heat. I used the bare head w/ reflector for a couple shots, and also used my 28″ Westcott Apollo as a nice crisp indirect box with the diffusion material pulled back (pics later in post)

Here’s my Think Tank Airport Acceleration V2.0 bag with the Kit (I put my camera body where the spare battery is)

And here’s how I rig up the Apollo with the Eli head.

I figured I’d also throw in a shot of Tom as well 😉
