The time has come for John James Jewelry Look Book Part 2. A quick drive to Drumheller with Wilkosz+Way, a whole lot of bug spray, makeshift makeup station and a giant sun umbrella. Check, check, check! I know I'm very excited about creatives, and I rave and rant about them, but seriously, this one is epic! The location was perfect, Ania was rock solid as per usual, and well I can gush for hours here. I'm so lucky to work with such a brilliant, creative and positive team. Love, Love, Love!

Here is the wrap up of the busy weekend. The last 2 days went just as smoothly as the first two and I got to meet and work with new amazing people from Texas and Oslo. This was the first production of this kind by Veer, I am ready for another one! High five for everyone, we rocked it!

Three Art Directors, nine photographers and over 200 models! Welcome to the Corbis Photo Op. Each Art Director has 3 photographers, 1 hair/makeup, 1 stylist both with an assistant. Then in a span of 2 hours on average 15 models show up, and it's go time. Such organized chaos, I love it! It's so much fun. My assistant for Thursday was the lovely Olga Onulov, and for Friday, Kyla Loewen. I've missed working with these two gorgeous ladies and, of course they did an amazing job. I had such a great time, everyone rocked it, awesome 2 days so far. Bring on day 3!
Day 2 styling and makeup area. We had 16 models today, I'm amazed at how organized it looks! Such pros!
Glenmore Park, Day 1 wardrobe and change room area. The wind knocked the racks over a few times, other then that, smooth sailing!

So I got some behind the scenes shots from the photo shoot I talked about in my last post. Yes! Here is the Chanel Chance bottle, along with Gucci and Givenchy. The thing is giant and weighed like 20 pounds. April got a workout!
One of the softer looks.
Marta and the Chanel C's.

So last Sunday, the 13th, was a perfect day for a photo shoot with Wilkosz+Way. Here is how the day went. Phillip Elliot on hair, Leah Van Loon styling. The first shot, April Kargard (Mode Models) was the face for what will hopefully turn into a perfume bottle series. To the same theme of the Chanel perfume bottle with Riley, we shot April with a giant Chanel Chance bottle. None of the behind the scenes shots turned out, but we did use the image below as a guide. This is one of my most favorite shots out of my entire portfolio, so I'm really hoping Aprils turn out just as amazing.
Then onto part two.
April in mens oversized suit jackets, killer shoes and throw in a bathing suit. Quite the mix. From the mind of stylist Leah Van Loon. To contrast the masculine, Phillip did some gorgeous soft wavy hair and I switched up the makeup from light and airy to vamp. A bonus, it was a very rare gorgeous day so it ended up being a half indoor/outdoor shoot. There was six outfits in total, so I'm excited to see how they all turned out!

I LOVE these!
So worth the wait. Wilkosz+Way, Leah Van Loon and Ania Boniecka, you kick some serious ass. I did the hair on this one, pat on the back, it turned out fantastic. I'm so excited about these!
I'm torn between the first two for favorites.
These are from a shoot a while back that Wilkosz+Way did using a giant florescent light. Clean, romantic and very beige.... and very gorgeous! Ania B rocked, as per usual, and W+W made some fine work of the styling! Nicely done guys!
