Photo Shoot with Dave Cross

Dave Cross

Canon 5D MKII - Sigma 85 f/1.4 EX DG

Last Friday, I went on a model photo shoot along with Dave Cross. Dave was back in Ottawa for a couple of days visiting family and also for his “Photoshopotography: Work Smart” presentation at the RA Camera Club. About a week before the shoot, Dave and I were going back and forth with messages about meeting up and getting together for an outdoor photo shoot. Which at the time seemed like a good idea, the weather in Ottawa had been much warmer than normal for this time of year.

Our model for the day was Tania, she has been one of the incredible models that we have had on the Model Photo Shoot Workshops this year.  Accompanying and also driving us around was another Ottawa photographer, Denis Duchesne – thanks Denis! After breakfast we headed up to the Wakefield Covered Bridge, it was cold, freezing cold. There was ice forming along the shore of the river. The warm weather that we had the week before, was now a distant memory.

After braving the cold for a while we then decided to go and shoot in a warmer location, so we headed off to a nearby stable. As we were going inside Dave just happened to mention that he was extremely allergic to horses, and that the only other thing that he was allergic to was cats. I snapped this photo of Dave as we entered the barn, hoping that a horse wouldn’t rub up against him and that a cat wouldn’t jump up on him.  Neither happened, though there were a couple of close calls. It was a great day of shooting and hanging out with friends!
