I've worked with Jessie Harris once before on the Made In Vancouver photoshoot with Margaret Torgerson and he was great. That time I called him. This time around Jessie lined up a model and friend of his, Chantelle Bousquet, and asked Static to do a shoot of them. With help of the styling team of kdon, Shai, and Tamar we did an awesome fashion editorial shoot in Gastown that might be favorite so far. Thanks for everyone's help… I think it turned out awesome and I'm excited to work with you guys again. Check out the whole set over at Flickr.

Recently I had the chance to do a photoshoot with models Lenore Owens and Mitchell Bowman in Gastown that we ended up jokingly calling "Screamo". We had the help of our friends Kimberley Nelson of Discollection, Shai of PrepWork, and Tamar Ouziel. We've done several shoots together now over the past few months and I can't say enough about what a great styling team they have been to work with. Thx guys. Check out the whole set over at Flickr.
