Warrior of the Dawn

View this BIGGER on my website


All I can say about this shoot was "wow". I had a previous shoot with Danny Boy Stephens, an incredible Mi'kmaq warrior, back in January (see ) that I didn't think we could out-do....but this morning - this incredible, beautiful morning - I think we did it.


Photographed at 5:30AM on the shores of the Great Slave Lake outside Yellowknife, Northwest Territories.


Technical/lighting info: brought down all the studio strobes only to realize I forgot my Pocket Wizards, which basically rendered them useless. I sent my assistant, Andrea, back to the studio to get them, but didn't want to lose the incredible light, which I knew would change dramatically, and quickly. Improvised with a single off-camera Canon 550EX speedlite, model left (and about 10 feet in front of him), trigerred by a 580EX speedlte, on camera.


Thanks to both Danny Boy and Andrea for making this shoot a success. Tonnes more images to go through....this is just a quick preview.
