Before each shoot, photographer Alex Waber or stylist Beckiy Winston will consult with you to plan the shoot’s theme, which can range from WWII-style Vargas Girl shoots to a tribute to 60’s and 70’s-era centerfolds. Beckiy will take your measurements and dig into her time-travelling wardrobe to select the perfect vintage fashions for your chosen theme. On the day of the shoot, a team of make-up artists and hair stylists will give you the star treatment, readying you for a playful jaunt in front of the camera. Before a plain backdrop, Alex Waber coaxes out poses that are whimsical, colourful, and uncannily vintage, with only a hint of coquettishness. He can use props such as fans, flowers, and record players to achieve a desired effect or launch a wind-powered radio station. After the shoot, Alex loads the pictures on to his laptop and lets you pick out your favourites, which he will then edit, delivering the final results in about a week. <p>

Alex Waber Photography

After graduating from Capilano University's cinematography program in 2005, Alex Waber decided to freeze his motion-picture sensibilities into non-moving pictures. Using the knowledge he gained during his post-Capilano photography studies at Focal Point, he's led a distinguished career capturing striking eye-level portraits of actors, designers, and drag kings, and producing gripping fashion editorials and long-exposure, movement-oriented creative work, some of which has been featured in various publications and galleries throughout Vancouver. During photo shoots, Alex harnesses his unique blend of motion- and still-picture experience to tastefully immortalize his model's images onto digital images, canvas prints, and pieces of toast.

Loved the photo shoot and Alex made me very comfortable in front of the camera. Still waiting to receive the photos almost 3 weeks later but I trust they are in good hands and it has been christmas season and busy for everyone. Enjoyed the experience:)
