SHELLY SCHOLTEN by NICK THIESSEN
I’m on a boat! For this shoot we hit the water on a 70 ft. pilot house out in English Bay of downtown Vancouver. The idea from the shoot came from our creative team when wanting to take advantage of the beautiful summer weather in Vancouver while it still lasted. In addition, we had aimed to shoot at golden hour for optimal lighting, mood and to capture some of Vancouver’s breath taking landscapes. The boat idea was just wanting to shoot something our team hadn’t been apart of before. We felt the need to throw a change up.
The team we put together for this shoot was with a few familiar faces. To capture the photos we had to get our good friend Nick Thiessen who actually grew up close to Shelly in Abbotsford, BC. They’ve known each other for quite some time so it was great for them to finally shoot together as well. We can’t say enough about Nick and the great job he does when shooting. So many edits to choose from packing both quality and quantity. We wanted to make sure we made the most of this shoot, so we had to get Brock Newman on board for video. He never ceases to amaze us with his vision. For make up, we were able to have Shayna Coumont hop on board. In addition to her talent in make up artistry, she always brings a lot of positivity and great vibes to every one of the shoots we’ve had the pleasure of working with her on. It’s always nice to have her apart of the team.
It had been a while since we had been in contact with Shelly about shooting. We had missed the opportunity to work with her during our time in Los Angeles back in June. We also missed her during her frequent trips to Vancouver. In the end it was worth the wait, as we love how everything turned out. Shelly is actually originally from a small town in BC called Abbotsford which is an hour drive from Vancouver. She now resides in LA and frequently gets to travel for work and castings. You can catch Shelly soon on TV or in the gym putting in countless hours working hard on her body to stay in optimal shape. She is a client of Mack Fit, so you know she means business. Learn more about Shelly via our podcast recording with her. So without further delay, we proudly present to you #TROUVAILLE: Shelly Scholten by Nick Thiessen & Brock Newman.
