An Island of Two / SVA Magazine
photography / Saty + Pratha
fashion / Chad Burton
hair & makeup / Sheri Stroh
models / Robbie & Kelsey @ Elite Toronto
This was the first editorial I had a chance to work on since moving back to Canada. Yes I live in Canada now - boooooo! Not the I hate my home country, but I do miss the fashion scene of London or Seoul, like really really hard. Gah - stupid visas, they are the bane of my existence!
One good thing about being in Toronto however is that my fave photographer duo Saty + Pratha are living here now as well. I met them on a few shoots for 1883 Magazine back in London and we also collaborated together on a few RCA graduate collection lookbooks a while back. They make amazing shit happen and this shoot for SVA Magazine is no exception.
We took a weekend trip out to the Georgian Bay on the Bruce Peninsula for this story, doing the shoot entirely in the infamous setting of the Grotto, an area in a of rocks and cliffs and blue blue water in a national park near Tobermory. The shoot features a few local labels like Lucian Matis, Pink Tartan and Untitled & Co along with some great samples from Toronto shops such as Robber, Mama Loves You Vintage and Gravity Pope.
