It’s been a busy month here so far, so I haven’t had much time to do any updating! But things are winding down now for the holidays, so before I get to my last minute Christmas shopping…here’s what’s going on!

The Work of Sanjay Patel is currently on display in the Gallery. He’ll be doing a live painting again on December 30th with live music and the like. It’ll be a fantastic time! Details HERE.

The Work of Sanjay Patel, on display and for sale at Low Key.

In other news, in between rentals and shoots, I’ve been finding time to hang some of my own prints!

Easier on the wallet...the 5x5 collection

Nothing like a little bit of shameless self-promotion! I also realized I don’t have any photos up yet of the actual studio since it was finished! What was I thinking? Here you go…

The Make-up Area

The Kitchenette...the mini-fridge is being delivered next week.

Comfortable Couches

Manfrotto Ceiling Mounted Seamless system & Top-Line Speedotron Lighting System.

We have a Neutral Grey, White, Black & Green mounted by default.

Control up to 4 heads from this pack, slap a pocket wizard (we have them) on your camera and you're good to go for wireless shooting!

So there you have it! A bit of an information overload, maybe…but hey, it’s Christmas! There are still spaces available for the workshops in January, so check that out if you’re interested for yourself, or for a gift for the photo enthusiast on your list. Have a safe and happy holiday everyone!

Of course one of the many uses for the studio is going to be film shoots (by the way, rental rates are now posted!). Since opening at the beginning of December we’ve already had the pleasure of having 2 music videos shot at Low Key Studio, and a third one is happening this Saturday.

The boys (along with the ridiculously talented and animated Anna Cyzon, who is featured on the track) from Johnny Major stopped by last weekend to shoot their video for Ghetto Fabulous [which I’m directing!]. With Chris Wardle as D.O.P. and Editor on this one, it’s sure to be an awesome first video for them! I just got some screen shots from some behind the scenes footage that was shot by Chris, so here they are!

The video will be dropping on January 6th 2012, and there will be a release party for the iTunes release of their new album “This is The Sound” and the music video release at Low Key Studios on the 6th as well. More details will be coming soon.

In other news, Katie and I were in studio shooting our Christmas cards the other night, and I was playing around with some long exposure stuff for fun when I got this photo…

Merry Christmas from Low Key Studio & Gallery!

If anyone is interested in booking a photoshoot for a friend or loved one as a Christmas present, we’ve got some sweet packages available at a discounted price during the Holiday Season. Shoot me an email at christoph@lowkeystudio.com if you’re interested! And don’t forget about the Workshops!

Bye bye for now!

I had the pleasure of working with a local Hamilton model, the lovely Ashley C. yesterday. These are some of my favourite shots from the afternoon.

Ashley will be one of several highly experienced models that workshop participants will be able to shoot with starting in January’s first batch of Studio Techniques workshops. Check back later this week for more information on the workshops and other featured models.
