23 Feb Music Video – Black Dog by David Arn
Last summer I had an amazing opportunity to do a portrait portion of a music video from David Arn. He is an incredibly talented American singer, songwriter, and musician. Kimberly Bowie, an Ottawa based Actress, contacted me and asked if I wanted to take on this project. She would be the actress of the dance video and they needed a photographer to capture photographs of her. I immediately said yes and talked with David of what he was looking for. Shortly after our phone call, the date was set for a few days later.
Kimberly also recruited Carolyn for two looks of makeup and hair. It was a very long day of shooting but it was one of my favourite days as a photographer. David Arn wanted me to capture photos of Kimberly that would resemble a memory of a guy who is in love with her, so a boyfriend’s point of view. Kimberly is one of the most beautiful people I know so photographing her was a breeze. I had a lot of fun spending the day with her. We went to three locations, stopped at A&W for a snack and got to work.
Kimberly picked the first location which was at Princess Louise Falls. We got there early and it wasn’t long before it became a busy spot. We manage to get lots of photos without anyone else in the frame.
It was a really nice summer day. We went to Mooneys Bay next. I grew up around that area and knew there was a cute dock there that would be fun to shoot on. Then we walked around there and found more spots.
Kimberly came up with the cute idea of drawing a heart in the sand. It worked well in the video. It was a great way for Kimberly to show her personality in the video. I thought that was super cute.
I want to thank David for trusting me to photograph Kimberly and giving me such a great opportunity. I want to thank Kimberly for thinking of me and recommending me to David.
