I was inspired to do a Cabaret-themed shoot with one of my favourite models, Dorrie Mack, after our first shoot together produced an image that strongly reminded me of the cabaret look.
So I enlisted designer and cosplay enthusiast Eva Mocek / Gearpunk'd to create some pieces specifically for the project. She recommended her good friend Coral Brandenburg for makeup and hair. Coral loves doing burlesque work and was a perfect fit. And I was able to borrow my wife's assistant Anique Alletson for the day to give me a hand with lighting gear and setup.
Online mag NIF Magazine published the project (NSFW), and UK-based print mag Femme Rebelle published a shot as well.
I shot the project at Peter House Studios in Mississauga. Pentax camera/lenses and Paul C Buff lighting.
