Plutino / Erwin Loewen’s CHRISTINE CLARK, by Erwyn.

"With Fall weather in the air it means that the sun is no longer as harsh, which makes for ideal direct sunlight photos. I had discovered this local location and thought it would be an ideal place to shoot a hot summer story with it’s Southern California feel although it was already cool here in the GTA. Christine had just the right Southern California girl feel for what I wanted and the rest is history."

Sutherland Models' CATE CHANT, by Erwyn (

"When I found out that Cate was a horse back rider it was a no brainer that I had to shoot her with my horses. On a last minute’s notice she came out to my farm and I quickly photographed her while the thunderheads built up to the east and threatened to cut our time short. Thankfully Cate needed minimal direction and we beat the rain."

Chantale Nadeau's / Sutherland's ALEXIS ARMOUR, by Erwyn (

"This was a shoot that almost didn’t happen as it was raining and the model was driving in from out of town. She called and asked if it was worth it… I crossed my fingers and told her to come anyway.  We shot everything in the sun with no direction or plan other than to be inspired by our surroundings."

Chantale Nadeau / Sutherland's TY STATES, by Erwyn (

"We had the privilege to shoot in a friend’s home but it was getting dark and I wanted to shoot with available light.  From the time the brush touched Ty’s face until we packed up was about an hour. I love working with professionals."

Sutherland and Chantale Nadeau's KRISTEN AUBIN and ROXANNA DUNLOP by Erwyn


"I wanted to create something that was tasteful, yet beautifully artistic while keeping the focus on the models, not on the clothing.  Sheer black tulle gave me just enough texture to keep things interesting , while not taking attention away from the girls."

Make Up: Kristen Aubin

Sutherland & Chantale Nadeau’s BAYAN PETERSON by Erwyn


"Bayan simply has one of the best heads of hair in the world and Dat was itching to get his hands on it while I simply wanted any reason at all to shoot with her again. Since a location shoot was not practical with the amount of hair changes, I agreed to shoot in a studio much to the delight of the rest of the team. Dat has his hopes up that I will get converted to become a studio shooter; I hope he’s not holding his breath!"

Chantale Nadeau/Sutherland's RICHELLE by Erwyn


"We had wanted to do a shoot on Toronto Island with late afternoon light, but after missing the ferry by 15 seconds we got a rather late start and didn’t really get any direct sunlight. What we got instead was gorgeous soft light during  a rapidly darkening evening, and what was meant as a swimsuit shoot turned into more of a lifestyle shoot as temperatures dropped. By the time we were heading back we were wishing we had packed hoodies! "

Chantale Nadeau/Ford's ALANNA by Erwyn


"With summer here, I knew my makeup artist and friend Emily was just dying to play with some colour to go with the current trends. I didn’t have anything specific in mind that I wanted to shoot so I let her play and after looking at what she had done I decided to light it with direct sunlight to saturate the colour and pick up the sheen on Alanna’s  skin to create a warm summer feel."
