We shot these for our stock sales and what a cool shoot it was. They are also on sale as large canvas prints at our Crated site.

Ottawa Riverkeeper is a fantastic organization dedicated to protecting Ottawa’s waterways, and ensuring that they are safe for everyone. Last weekend, they along with Swim Ottawa had their Inaugural 4K Inter-Provincial Swim. The event had swimmers making their way right across the Ottawa River – from Parc des Cedres, in Aylmer, QC, to Lac Deschenes Sailing Club, near Shirley’s Bay, ON. The swim was a full 4 kilometres and took most of the swimmers under two hours to complete. What a fantastic day raising money for a great cause! Enjoy some of our images below, and feel free to take a look at the original post on my own blog, Lorien @ Couvrette.
A troupe from China performed during the Music and Beyond festival and I had a great time shooting them for PR…
It was interesting to see the dedication these kids had…a totally different show than Cirque..but quite worth the time. Julian Armour has pulled off another Ottawa success this year…
We shoot a broad range of events from conventions to celebrations like this one. Fireworks are a classic on Parliament Hill and I like to find a new viewpoint. I have been shooting fireworks dozens of times on the Hill, but these were my faves. In the big days of stock photography I did very well with Corel, releasing hundred of images on CD….
Ottawa is often referred to as the town that fun forgot. I have a lot of friends who are determined to change that cliche.
We at Couvrette Studio contribute to over 200 charities and while this was a promotional festival….what better venture to support
than a group of people trying to liven up the core where I live as well as operate the only photographer-owned studio in Centretown.
PR is a funny thing. Old media are dead or dying and much of the “new media” while funky are simply not effective. Quality and immediacy
are still king. We shoot PR for some of the largest corporations in the world and then shoot for a local lady making kids lunchboxes…
If I think of the reach of these images alone, it defies any notion I was ever taught in J-school years ago. With my social media network and the
followers of this blog, these images will be seen by over 25,000 eyeballs by the end of this month. That is more views than most local mags
and papers will command on a story and more PR than a flack could have generated in a year merely a decade ago.
At the core of PR is strong imagery…Yes boys and girls…They are still worth a thousand words!

Congrats to Kathleen Wynne on becoming the first female Premier of Ontario. I shoot for all political parties on all levels of politics and I guess one of my “claims to fame” is that I am the only photographer who has done portraits of every Prime Minister of Canada from Pierre Trudeau to Stephen Harper.
This was a lot of fun and a great challenge to illustrate the facilities of an Ottawa company which is one of the world leaders in designing and testing audio technology. The shoot combined product photography and editorial/annual report type images which will be used to market the company on their site and in ads worldwide. I really love telling peoples stories…
