Queen of Burlesque Dita Von Teese performed her infamous martini glass routine at Northbound Leather’s 26th Anniversary Party last night in Toronto at The Phoenix Concert Theatre. God bless Northbound for bringing Dita to Toronto for the first time! She was such perfection it was otherworldly. Dita is all diamonds, silky skin, maddening teases, and old school Glamour with a capital G. I caught the act from the balcony and shot my little heart out. I am so pleased to be able to share a peek of the show with all of you who weren’t able to attend. I have never seen the Phoenix so full! The event was further proof of Toronto’s major come-up right now. Exciting times! xo
I am a big fan of this Canadian ingenue. She is all set to blow up. With a voice like a purring kitten and a calm, apathetic cool, whatever Talvi does next is sure to be a success that will add to Toronto’s growing reputation as one of the greatest cities in the world. I shot Talvi last Autumn at the Clint Roenisch Gallery just for fun to see what we would create together. The results were very classic, Parisian. Under the studio lights Talvi’s flawless skin reflected delicate highlights to my delight. She is a homegrown talent to be celebrated. Take a peek and have a listen below. xo >>>

The results of my two photoshoots with magnificent soprano Ambur Braid are at long last published on Braid’s shiny new website amburbraid.com. Head over to the site to experience the unique blend of talent, class, seduction, and humour that make up the backbone of this wonderful performer. Braid is currently embodying the role of Queen of the Night in the English National Opera’s run of The Magic Flute. I eagerly await her return to this side of the pond for a well-deserved bottle of champagne to celebrate her suave new site. xo
