NEW EDITORIAL/ Spring Fling for ION Magazine Issue #95!

HELLOO!!! It's been one heck of a long time and for anyone who still reads these, I APOLOGIZE. I'm v sorry, life gets in the way and unfortunately for this blog and anyone hoping for regular updates,  procrastinating and photoshoots kind of take priority. Yes, it's literally a dramatic switch between photoshoots and procrastinating, I'm not kidding - well, sometimes there's mild anxiety about where to start and what to start on first, which turns into procrastinating, which turns into eating ice cream bars.

Saul and I shot this a while ago, back in January for ION Magazine and it was originally for the February issue. One issue with the printer later though, and here we are in late March (late as in tomorrow is April). It's not a bad thing though! Because you know what? Something I've done is finally in print and in circulation across Canada, and if it took an extra month, I'm okay with that ;D

In other news, I've been working on a few other projects which you'll all see in good time! I always release lots of sneak peeks on projects on my Instagram @MarchelCreative though, so make sure to check it out and follow along!

I've also started a bit of my own online magazine by the name of Your Future Magazine - we're still in early stages of getting things together but I'm definitely looking for writers, photographers, stylists, and anyone creative to submit and get involved. If you wanna help out, short term OR long term, shoot me an email at

NOW you're probably exhausted from that boring talk, so here's the editorial mentioned earlier!

Had the pleasure of shooting Summer from Family Management again! Originally this was just going to be a make up shoot that Kelsey initiated for The Blanche Macdonald Centre Francesca Tolot "One Woman 100 Faces" contest but we took some time before Kels got started and did a bit of a mini-test shoot.

Enjoy and don't forget to check out Kelsey's final photo submission for the contest at the end of the post!

TESTING/ Justice - Round 2

New test shoot with this lovely face who goes by the name of Justice. He's been on SWAV before but got in contact with me again to take some new photos. Justice isn't signed to an agency yet but he will be walking in Vancouver Fashion week for a show or two so keep an eye out for him there!

The weather (up until yesterday) has been especially nice in Vancouver for this time of year - it's so exciting to be able to start shooting outdoors again. Ever since the end of December I've just been feeling absolutely drained of any creative energy. I think partly just from getting tired of shooting in my cramped studio. It's so much more refreshing to have the option of choosing inside or outside and I after shooting outside again in the sun, I can definitely feel some inspiration starting to flow back into my body.

Enjoy the photos! :)

Hi everyone! 

Over the past month Saul and I were contacted by Fernando and Sunny, the two creative founders behind the minimal streetwear brand 'OUIBONJOUR'. Established in Barcelona, they were visiting Vancouver for a month before leaving again for Berlin.

'OUIBONJOUR' puts an emphasis on comfort and personal expression while keeping a minimal approach to presentation and uniformity.

As the two have been traveling around the world they've been interviewing the creatives that they discover in whatever city they stop in. In the past they've interviewed the likes of Norwegian music artist Torgny Amdam, Parisian photographer Mathieu Vilasco, Swedish cartoon artist Franz Ung, the Swedish fashion label (whom we love as well) Orphan Bird, and a few others which you should definitely check out in their interviews section.
