A Picnic in the Park

February 17th, 2013 7 comments

It’s not every day that you have an extravagant picnic in the park! But if you do, be sure to bring the antique furniture, vintage china and a selection of cute and delicate pastries. And don’t forget to wear fancy dresses and get your hair and makeup done professionally for the occasion. It’s also a good idea to bring along a photographer to capture the memories. Here are some of them:

Fashion Designs by Von Monica Couture

April 30th, 2012 4 comments

Monica Fraser, the head designer of Von Monica Couture, contacted me to photograph two of her designs. I had previously photographed her beautiful peacock motif collection, and love her work. Each piece is hand-made, meticulously designed, one-of-a-kind clothing. There’s a story behind each one — the fabric, the inspiration and the work that goes into each detail.

Danyella Angel was gorgeous in the leopard print top, black dress and makeup by Kym Davidson. A special thanks to Mika of  The Studio By Mika Does Makeup for hosting us during the makeup and hair styling!

It was a pleasure to work with such talented people. We were also fortunate to have a beautiful Spring day – a rarity in April in rainy Vancouver!

Harajuku Fashion Shoot – Part 2

April 4th, 2012 No comments

Here is Part 2 of the Harajuku-inspired fashion shoot that I did in December.

Harajuku fashion originates from Japan and gets its name from the Harajuku station in Tokyo, advice which is popular place to find many types of street styles, order collectively called Harajuku fashion. The styles usually include colourful and crazy hairstyles, makeup and outfits.

For this shoot, I teamed up with makeup artist Mika, stylist JoAnna Keller and model Laurel. We had a lot of fun with the creative makeup and styling as you can see in photos below!

Check out Part 1:  Ganguro Fashion Shoot.

 

Ganguro Fashion Photoshoot

January 2nd, 2012 2 comments

Ganguro is a pretty unusual style from Japan. The look involves dark tan makeup, blond or orange hair, black eyeliner, false eyelashes with white around the eyes and on the nose, and white lipstick. There’s usually also jewels and stickers added to the makeup. The clothing is very bright and colourful. The style started in the 1990′s and was influenced by the dark tanned blond look from Camlifornia, but taken to an extreme! Ganguro is one of many street styles from Japan, and can be seen in Harajuku and Shibuyu, Tokyo.

Here are some photos of model Kristy with ganguro makeup by Mika Does Makeup. The outfits were provided by stylist Joanna Keller. Kristy was perfect for the shoot and is very familiar with the Harajuku fashion scene. The makeup was also perfect and the outfits put together by Joanna were great. The shoot was a lot of fun!

We did a couple more Harajuku inspired looks, which I will post soon!

 

If you are interested in trying the ganguro look, here is a very good tutorial on YouTube:

It’s October and summer is long gone in Vancouver, but here are some reminders of the warmth of summer from a photoshoot that I did in July. The shoot featured bright colours, sunglasses and wigs and the beautiful and talented models Sandra and Charr with makeup and hair by Rhi Yee.

I also used the opportunity to test out my Olympus E-30′s multiple exposure mode:

The multiple exposure mode gave some pretty cool images, so I will be doing more of them in future shoots!

4 Cinemagraph Portraits

August 30th, 2011 No comments

Cinemagraphs are a combination of video and still photography, visit web thumb usually more of a photograph with some motion. The term cinemagraph was coined by Jamie Beck and Kevin Berg. Cinemagraphs are actually animated gifs, no rx price which have been around for a long time, but they have a cinematic quality and retain the feel of a photograph.

A photographer friend of mine, Jenny Chen, was visting Vancouver so we decided to collaborate on a photoshoot and use the opportunity to try to create some cinemagraphs. It was the first time either of us had tried this. I followed an excellent video tutorial, which demonstrates how to create cinemagraphs using Photoshop CS5 Extended.

Here are 4 cinemagraphs from that shoot:

Oksana and Scarlett – Glitter Makeup Photoshoot

August 3rd, 2011 No comments

Here are some photos featuring glitter eye makeup by makeup artist Tessa Mitz, and models Oksana Bach and ScarlettS. We started the shoot in the studio using a couple different hand painted muslin backgrounds. One was a European-looking village scene and the other was a moonlit beach. I wasn’t sure if these would look too cheesy, but I think they worked and gave a different look than a seamless paper background.  I’m always interested in different ideas for studio backgrounds!

After the studio session, we moved to a small Vancouver park to finish the shoot. A lot of my photography is done in the studio, so it was great to have the opportunity to do an outdoor location shoot with natural light.

Here’s a slideshow with Scarlett’s photos:

The music for both the videos is by Remote Spaces from the “Silo” album.

 

Summer Sugar Skull Photoshoot

July 7th, 2011 No comments

Model: Chloe Gerak
Makeup: Jennifer Ruth
Hair: Katie-Rose Petley
Stylist: Jihan Amer

Soundtrack: Gothic by zero-project

This is the third in a series of sugar skull inspired collaborations that I have done with Jennifer Ruth, and several different models, hairstylists and fashion stylists. The previous shoots were Winter Muertos – In the Darkness of Winter  and Primavera de Muertos, each following a seasonal theme. I also collaborated with Catriona Armour and Kyla Lee for my first sugar skull photoshoot last year. The images for all these shoots were inspired by the beautiful artwork of Sylvia Ji and the very cool work of 666photography.

The Día de los Muertos sugar skull shoots have resulted some of my post popular photos. I’ve been fortunate to work with very talented teams – the models, makeup, hair and fashion styling have been amazing!  I love the photos and proud to have them in my portfolio.

I will be doing at least one more for the autumn season, and probably some others in the future because they have so many creative possibilities! Click on the image below to see more photos from the Summer Sugar Skull shoot.

Avant-Garde South Asian Bridal Fashion Shoot

South Asian Bride

 

A couple of my photoshoots were featured by AAINA – South Asian Bridal Beauty and Style in a post that included photography and information from my collabrations with model Amisha Sampat, designer Carma Creations, makeup and hair styling by Makeup Royale and Isha Paneswar, and fashion styling by Gurjit Parmar.

From the post:

” Vancouver Fashion Photographer, Lloyd K. Barnes, recently collaborated with some Vancouver Area South Asian Makeup Artists and Stylists to put together a fashion shoot which I think contains some pretty cool concepts for bridal inspiration.  By working with different vendors, he’s managed to create a number of different looks and styles.  Check out his Flickr Set featuring model Amisha Sampat for more pictures.  Each Image is unique and equally inspiring.  There’s something here for every style of bride, and I think it’s a perfect demonstration of how a different makeup style can completely switch up your look, from classic to anti-bride.”

Thank you AAINA for featuring our work!

Here are a some some photos that I took on the roof deck of The Studio by Mika Does Makeup with model Ariel K. Marie. It was pretty cold up there so it was a very quick shoot!
