Collaboration with Lyndsie Alguire

Working with Lyndsie Alguire


I had been seeing Lyndsie’s post on Instagram and just was struck by how well she would pose. I also really do love the way she looks. She has a style that I have always been partial to. I got in contact with her and coordinated a shoot in the Montreal area.


My First pro model


Lyndsie Alguire was extremely professional and very pleasant. It was, for me, the first time working with a nude model that knew exactly what to do. Exactly when to do it. What strikes you the first time working with someone who is used to posing nude is that they are aware of the poses that are beautiful and highlight the human body.

The technical details of this natural lighting


Natural light. No flash.

A light is from a large window to her left illuminated with a winter afternoon sun (EXIF data says January 4th,2017) The whole wall was a window. I rented this space from a sort of ArBnB of office space named Breather. There was one large window filling the whole wall looking out onto the city.

The light for this shot was just perfect. Not too soft. Not too hard.

About the model:



Lyndsie Alguire is an excellent nude artistic model. She lives in the Montreal area. Although she has done a lot of modeling in the past, I believe that she has focussed more on her musical creation these days. You can find more pictures of her and info on her music either in her own profile but also in my nude artistic Instagram profile named @newartisc. Her website however still mentions modeling as one of her services. Here are her links.

The Natural light photography session


This was part of a quick session I did with Lyndsie on a cold January afternoon. Lyndsie had the idea to use the Breather service and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to get a quick studio space to shoot. It is as good as AirBnB and also allows for a bit more flexibility. You can move elements in an office environment around a bit quicker than in a residential environment.
