CHELSEA TOMECEK by NICK THIESSEN
This past spring we caught wind that Chelsea Tomecek of Numa Models was interning at a local news station. She has such a great, unique look so we immediately thought to connect to create with her. So we reached out to her and we are glad we were able to set something up so we moved forward with the arrangements. The location used was a AirBnb space in the historic Gastown district. Amidst of the month full of rain, on this day we got some sun and the golden hour lighting we got was perfect for the boho-hippie vibe we were trying to attain!
Chelsea just recently graduated from SAIT with an Associate’s degree in Radio and Television Broadcasting Technology and is now a traffic news reporter for the Canadian Traffic Network where she gets to ride in a helicopter over the city of Calgary and give reports over the traffics conditions. A big congratulations to her!
For this shoot, we had friend and photographer Nick Thiessen get on board and he did a wonderful job of capturing Chelsea’s striking beauty. When discussing the concept/vibe of the shoot, both Nick and our team of directors both had a similar idea to use a head wrap. The head wrap can be a bold move, but we nailed it and Nick has expressed how the photos he shot with that particular look turned out to be his favorite photos that he has taken…EVER! Once again, we had the luxury of working alongside pro make up artist Ksenia Ogolikhina. It is always a pleasure to have her add her magic touch. Having her on board adds that much more to the final images. Wardrobe and styling was provided by the hard working Siman Heer. Mixing different articles old and new, she has a great sense of matching colors, fabrics and materials and has a great eye for what pops on camera. Stay tuned for more shoots to come with Nick during our trip out in Los Angeles!
