TORONTO PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP: GOOSEBERRY’S CONFIDENCE ON CAMERA WORKSHOP 01

As the founder of Gooseberry Studios, I’ve photographed hundreds of people over the years and a common comment I hear time and time (and time) again from individuals from all walks of life is that they don’t like how they look on camera. They see every minute ‘flaw.’ They focus on their insecurities. They have trouble facing the face that they present day in and day out to the world. They struggle to celebrate their body for the incredible physical things it can do and instead get weighed down by superficial aesthetics alone — aesthetics that aren’t even self-dictated, but instead declared by facets of society.

I’d like to say that as a person who works in media that I’m beyond such thoughts myself, but the truth is that I’m just as personally vulnerable to them. And I don’t like it. It’s a huge problem, one that I wanted to start talking about in an open, safe and supportive space. Which is why Gooseberry created our signature Confidence on Camera Workshop hosted in bustling downtown Toronto. We hosted our first class this month and here’s a little recap if you’re interested!

For this personal branding shoot we tapped into our high fashion sensibilities and passion for capturing moody moments that are doused in emotion. The results? Well take a peek if you’re interested!

TORONTO PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER: AS YOU WERE NO MAKEUP PORTRAIT SERIES SHOOT 03 MIRNA

We’re delighted to unveil As You Were Shoot #3! As You Were is an on-going fine art portraiture series of real women designed to explore natural faces and beauty in a fashion forward style. Each portrait is designed with an elevated wardrobe and stunning editorial location, as any high-end photoshoot would be – the only difference is that each photo subject does not wear any makeup at all.

The goal of the series is to celebrate a new female narrative, one that recognizes a woman’s presence rooted in a foundation of confidence, inner strength and defiance of expectation.

In partnership with Gotham + Grace, it’s our hope that As You Were will inspire an acceptance and celebration of self among women from all walks of life. (more…)

This principle was weaved throughout every aspect of The Classy Simple Life’s Personal Branding Shoot. We created a timeless aesthetic that was filled with light, laughter and longevity.

The purpose of this photo series is to challenge the societal belief that we need makeup. We’re not saying “never wear makeup.” We’re saying that we can still be professional, put together and gorgeous without anything on our natural faces, if we so choose.}
