Day 3 of 5: Salem’s Scissors’ collection “Circo”

“Circo” is all about the fun and discovery that one feels while attending a circus event as a child. It’s about all that magic, color and movement that one should never forget about as an adult. It tries to bring back that childish way of dressing fun yet staying stylish while expressing through our similar silhouette, with new patterns and elements.

Day 2 of 5: Kayley Johnson’s line, “Singularity”

Kayley Johnson attended MCTC where she acquired a certificate in Apparel Technology. She transferred to Stout and studied in London through their apparel program. “Singularity” is a take on futuristic fashion, inspired by mecha armor and the neon city lights.

You can see images from “Singularity” at Full Fashion Panic here, and you can also see images from the shoot I did with Kayley taken in April here.

Xee Vang – 5 Days of Full Fashion Panic

This last Sunday was the annual Full Fashion Panic show, one of my absolute favourite fashion events of the year! Every year it highlights the incredible work of designers who are up-and-coming as well as the established artists, all under the supervision of designer Samantha Rei and Dr. Frenchy Lunning.

The 2015 show featured 5 talented designers so I will be posting images from the collections of 1 each day this week. At the end of the week, I’ll be posting many of the images to my Facebook page but to see them all, you’ll need to go to PhotoSynthetique on Flickr.

First up is Xee Vang, whose work is inspired by Asian street fashion. The bright and beautiful colours create a cohesive collection that is fun and stylish.

You can check out the entire set of images here on my Flickr account.

Portrait Special plus Kay and Carla

These are some images from the super fun photoshoot that I did with Carla and Kay last week, two of my absolute favourite people in the world. Special thanks to Theresa and her hubby for the use of their amazingly cute farm!

As many of you¬†know, I’ve been spending a lot of time lately working in the world of video and audio editing so I’ve been a bit quiet on the photography front. I’m hoping to fix that this summer with lots of equally exciting shoots, and I’m hoping to do so with YOU! To that end, I’m running an on-location portrait special for anyone in the Minneapolis/St Paul area. Just $125 for a standard 2 hour session at a location of your choosing! We’ll get together and make some beautiful images! To book your slot during this special, just send me an email at drayke@photosynthetique.com or call 612-424-9760 (if I don’t answer, make sure to leave voicemail!) before July 1st! I can’t wait to hear from you!
