Back in the spring my favorite Calgary model, Andrea Ference, and I took some of Mark Abenir’s amazing dresses he designed for his label Averynthe, and headed out to Vermilion Lakes in Banff National Park, Alberta for a fun fashion photo shoot. Mark has great vision and Andrea’s stunning, never-ending legs were showcased beautifully in his spring collection. She was a trooper climbing around in muck, over dead logs, through freezing water and posing in icy wind on a moose nest to capture these amazing images. I am a sucker for taking fashion out of the studio (boring) and into creative locations/backdrops that often are in direct opposition of what the subject represents…it’s just more interesting for the eye, I think anyway.
