OttawaFashionWeek GotSquared

Very recently, Ottawa ranked number 8th on the list of the worst dressed cities in the world... This is not far from being true, but it is not a 100% true because whoever judges went to down town at lunch time in sunny summer day!...

Here are some photos of the fashion event of the year in the city... some beautiful people and great designers. This shows you that the Nation's Capital is moving towards being a fashion forward city!

These are some of my favorites moments from last weekend... Moments taken from front row, second row, third row or wherever I was or from wherever I was not kicked out (Don't ask why)

This is OFW through the lens of YouGotSquared...high contrast... high energy... high colour... this is YouGotSquared!

I hope you enjoy these still images as much as I do.

Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit GotSquared!

Two weeks ago I woke up uninspired, I didn't have many ideas running through my head and I was actually thinking of putting my camera down to re-think what I really wanted. 

In my head, I had always the though, -I need inspiration, I need to see something that will set up my mind differently, and I am not talking about drugs, I haven't done it and I don't think I will ever do it, then I called up my good friend Pino and said, hey, lets go to Montreal to see Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit at the Montreal museum of fine Arts he said Yes! Great...
So.... Let's get inspired! let's see some art!

This was an amazing experience and for sure inspired me a lot.
JPG is all about details and precision... it's about different.. elegance.. drama... it's like go big or go home!

This exhibit inspires anyone... every second I spent there was amazing... it was like my brain started to think again and re focus and seeing what I want to be... and I don't mean a designer, I would never achieve something like that, but through the lens, I can imagine and make something happen!

This man's work is amazing... I could go again!

The exhibition — which the couturier considers to be a creation in its own right rather than a retrospective – features approximately 140 ensembles, mainly from the designer's couture collections, but also from his prêt-à-porter line, along with their accessories. Created between the early 1970s and 2010, these pieces have, for the most part, never before been exhibited.

Here, probably my favorite pieces, from the catwalk

Animal inspired;

Culture inspired

and to me, VERY interesting and unique pieces...

We have to get some inspiration in moments when we need it the most.  I think this has been one of the best exhibits I have seen. Loved it, I would see it many times and find more interesting every time!

I wish I could post more photos of this exhibit.  If you have the chance to go, just go! it is amazing.

Monday, September 19, 2011 is live!

On September 15th, 2011, we had the pleasure of launching at the event of the year, LIFE OF STYLE, hosted by 20YS, Beyond Events and Thann skin care at the Arc Hotel, we are finally live!

One blink and everything is gone away and never to be seen again, it becomes nothing but a figment of your imagination. The essence of YouGotSquared is to capture those fleeting moments in time: a smile, a long gaze, a shimmer of silk or a crisp of a fall Sunday afternoon....

From behind the lens we create timeless stills.  Nothing is conventional.  Nothing is ordinary.
We get you out of the box to put you in our Square!

July 1st, Canada day

July 1, Canada day, is by far my favorite day to be in the city... everybody gets ready for a big celebration and everybody, regardless the race or nationality, gets together to celebrate.  On this day, we don’t have problems, we don’t have worries, we are just very happy.

The first time I spent Canada day in Ottawa was July 2002.  I heard everybody talking about it but I never thought how crazy this cite becomes. 

I went out that day, thinking, oh well, this will be just a huge concert by the hills and that’s it! no! I was happily surprised when I saw the streets full of people and only 2 colors, red and white, that is all I could see, from then on, I always look forward to celebrate on this day!

This was my fav street show!

Amazing attitude of this man, you can tell how proud he is of being Canadian

This guard impressed me the most. It was about 40 degrees and he was like nothing was happening. People coming and going taking picture with him... very impressed, great presence.


I loved this guys and how they were making sounds, cool sounds, great and creative way!

Ottawa during the day and at night, crazy! normally this place is not as busy... hmmm never busy.

Our BBQ waiting Go Eric go! I didn't eat much, I was having some vino!

This is the sky of the nation's capital on Canada day!

My favorites photos on Canada day.
