Some rules you follow and some rules you break then when you get to make the laws you break All the rules ! Photo shot with 24 mm 1.4 because when you are crossing the ocean in a small boat you really don’t need a long lens. A Babak Photo 2011
Last minute touch ups before the shoot. The cleaner the hair & make up the less post production and touch ups needed making for more of a natural final image. When you get lazy on set you pay big after. A Babak photo.
A few shots that I did from the stage performance at the Contessa Awards [ Hair styling awards show ] in Toronto. I was not covering this show but the great production and styles made me fire a few shots . Babak Photos
An Outtake from a 2010 Naha Awards collection. This collection is still one of my favorites as it mixes fashion with avant-garde hair. The lighting budget was very tight on this shoot. This was shot after the shoot using a 60w house hold bulb – Hand held 35 mm glass at a safe f2.5 . I did a few portraits in that location afterwards. A babak Photo & Charlie Price Hair.
Me and model going up next to a poster I shot.
I knew this would make a interesting photo when i saw the size and the placement of the banner, so I asked Felix to take position a cross the floor he then arm him self with the 70 -200 mm and wait for us to come up the escalator . We had to do this ride 3-4 times to get the escalator empty on a busy show day. Needles to say we got a lot of looks from people attending the busy show since no one could see Felix’s positioned were wondering what the hell we were doing . With me and the model in the photo the size of the poster is more dramatized.

A shoot with Sharon Toxic-Vision clothing & model Hayley Campbell at the studio. Makeup & hair Elena Pacienza . I used strobes for this one, 1 soft box for the model and 2 lights on the back wall to get it a bit cleaner but still have the rawness feel to it. A BABAK photo 2010

A few behind the scenes shots that I did at my last photo shoot. Let the photographer be the shooter at the photo shoot. Leave the shooting to him! People taking photos on set is distracting to the model and the photographer. Babak Photos 2010 – Models ” Top Kate Eaton & Bottom Kelleth Cuthbert

I did this shoot with Aleksandra in my car, I used the dashboard lights and a small camping flash light to fill in. I wanted a fast fun shoot without all the production. The exposure was f1.4 at 1/10 sec on a 35 mm lens.
