“Fiery and uninhibited, Renée Landry is a powerhouse of Northern Ontario soul. Hailing from Sault Ste. Marie, with her commanding stage presence and fierce vocal delivery, she weaves confessional stories of love gone wrong with 90’s pop-soul sensibilities. ” - reneelandryofficial.com
Last year I received an email from Renee asking if I was interested in photographing her upcoming EP Like A Boss. When speaking about her vision for the cover Renee referred to artists such a Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Amy Winehouse as inspiration. We began the search for the perfect location , upon our search Renee found The White Monkey, a antique store located in downtown Ottawa. They were gracious enough to let us use their space to create the EP cover as well as some promotional images.
Nine months later it was time for Renee’s EP release party at LIVE! on Elgin. Opening for her was Mack & Ben , A groovy, heartfelt, and soul-filled sibling fronted group from Ottawa.
Below are some of my favourite images we shot for promotion, the EP and finally the release party.
