A glamorous studio is definitely a luxury, but isn’t always needed to land in some of the hottest magazines in the world. Take this photo shoot for example. Amongst the flurry of events back in December, I made sure to check out what it was like to be behind-the-scenes for an editorial for the 13th issue of Hobo Magazine: a super rad bi-annual avant-garde lifestyle mag based in Vancouver and Paris, known to enlist and celebrate the talent of artists inspired by individuality and nature. There’s a good dose of refined fashion, art, film, current issues, and travel with a splash of unexpected celebrity features – all with original literature and beautifully shot, inspiring photos. Definitely a magazine Vancouver should be proud of.
Our brilliant Fashion Instructor, Tyler Udall (International Fashion Editor and Stylist), was the Art Director, Stylist and Photographer for this shoot. He had select pieces and accessories from Chanel, Rick Owens and Marc Jacobs flown in and chose from Ralph Lauren, Mandula and local creations from Anna De Courcy and Obakki. As you can probably tell by following The Que, prim, proper, glam and formulaic isn’t exactly what Tyler does. Raw, refreshing, spontaneous… that’s Tyler spot on.
Chanel, meet grungy bathroom. Rick Owens, meet Mother Nature. Throw in some Kevin Murphy Powder Puff (love! Have you tried this product?), dark sequins dotting the lower lash line, an attention-seeking cat, a few updos a la Nicole Lefaivre (and I mean UP), an easy-going and talented crew (which includes the very talented Makeup Artist Jenna Kuchera) and, of course, Tyler’s amazing vision and what you get is an out-of-the-ordinary, fail-proof method to produce beautiful imagery in any environment.
