My first shoot of the year was local musician Jennifer Budd at Threshold Studios in Hamilton. She a great up and coming singer in the area and was being featured in Hamilton Magazine's winter 2016 issue. I've shot all the covers for Hamilton Magazine for the last year and a half, so I have to approach every assignment with that in mind.
When shooting editorial, it is my job to get what the magazine needs, but I always try to go beyond and get something that could either land on the cover, or land in my portfolio. It doesn't always work out as well as you hope, but when you have three hours to spend with someone, you've got some time to experiment, have fun, and shoot until you have multiple cover options and portfolio pieces.
Below is a collection of images from my shoot with Jen. She was awesome to work with, which is one of the reasons we got so much great stuff.
