Erin DeGraw for Virtual Noise.

Friday here in Edmonton I shoot Erin for an Atlanta based website www.visualnoise.orgWe shoot for a couple of hours near her home, and I talked her into shooting a little portfolio piece for me. 

These are a few of her picks for virtual noise.

I thought the eye make-up was a bit much, however that's what they wanted for a sexy Oh Canada theme.

A couple of test shots

Like most photographers, I test my lighting setups (we used to shoot polaroids) before the talent is ready.  Ideally I like to get the basics right before the talent even arrives on set so I can get to know them a little while they are in hair and make up.

Avalon was our model a few weeks ago I grabbed this test of her, mostly because she's awesome.

A few months ago we rented a studio for a shoot.  While I was setting up and bullshitting with the studio manager (unfortunately I'm kind of horrible with names) he offered to stand in.  I love the braided goatee.
