Session 'Wild & Free'
This session took place in an old Slaughterhouse, converted into recording studios in SE Calgary. Local leathersmith Freyja Ulveland of FEHU handcrafted custom leather masks for our models to wear. Our guest photographer was Boon Ong. He struggled to capture the forms and the light in the dark space just as the artists did. The results were spectacular. Please visit boon's Figuratif page for an emergence into his work paired to music that lends to the whole experience of being in this environment.

Session 'Blank Page Bohemia'
Blank Page Studio is a beautiful creative space in the heart of Kensington, and operated by some of Calgary's most innovative and imaginative young professional artists. They host a variety of community gatherings, and we are blessed to have been welcomed back for our second figure drawing session here. Our guest photographer for this session was Evan Lewis of Winter Sun Photography. These images are dreamlike in quality, and capture the emotion of this session beautifully.

Session 'Dream Drawl'
