Brantford Shootout

Written by Ivan Sutton

When Ciara Antoski invited me to a Brantford Shootout, I had no idea what she was talking about.  “Brantford Shootout?” I asked.  She then went on to explain that she had organized a few models that did not get a lot of exposure to meet at DSC_0003Harmony Square in the Brantford city centre and made them available to photographers to shoot.  Well, I jumped at the opportunity.  I mean I had shot with Ciara before and was happy to have a chance to shoot with other photographers… how often does that happen?

It was great, the weather was perfect and the photographer turnout was just as good  I learned a lot!  Four photographers, two models!  Lillian Noel from The Habit was also there among others.

The Habit:  I had hear of this store.  It seemed that every other model that I would shoot would have an outfit that stood out from the others and I would ask “Where did you get that top?” and they would tell me it was bought at The Habit.   So it seemed that I was bound to meet Lillian at some point.

The shootout was excellent, I made new friends and have worked since with The Habit, Patrick McEachern (Photographer) and this Sunday I am working with Randy Scott (Photographer) on a shoot.  I will say, when I think of getting good models or talent, or finding a good or great photographer, or finding unique items to build out a wardrobe, Brantford may not be the first city that comes to mind.  But I dare say that if you take the time to seek out the local talent and services that Brantford has a lot to offer.  Just sayin.
