TALISE S. by STEPHAN VILLANUEVA
“Collaborating with Talise was an absolute fantastic experience. We were lucky to be able to shoot at the Saskatoon Farm one early morning, which is a beautiful place just a few minutes outside of Calgary, AB. It was the first time we met, but Talise’s open and kind personality made it extremely easy to work with her. I had the places already scouted out that I wanted to shoot at a few days prior, and in the end it all just synced. The shoot itself took about two hours. We initially messaged a few ideas back and forth, and decided to go with a more natural look for makeup and hair. The theme idea was a warm, sun-trenched feel with movement and femininity. Talise send me a message through Instagram, and we organized everything through there. For the future I am hoping to be able to keep on creating images that resonate with people. I am always planning and researching. Conceptualizing a few long-term projects in the Yukon. Establish and strengthen relationships with more agencies and other artists, as well as improve on my video work and travel.”

“Working with Stephan is ALWAYS a pleasure! He gives great direction and really captures mood beautifully! I was honoured to work with him, as he is so well-known here in Alberta! He told me where we’d be shooting and we created a mood board then I styled it myself, using stripes as the main fashion statement at the time. I creeped him and fangirled over his work then prayed that he’d be willing to work with me so we messaged on Instagram and created a relationship from there! I plan to continue working locally and begin travelling abroad often! I’m very excited to see what this year holds for the both of us!”
