Photographing conventions, meetings and events is one of our specialties. We are referred by many of the top venues in Ottawa because we are a fulltime professional studio with 40 years of experience capturing the city and its businesses. This event was at the newly minted Shaw Centre in downtown Ottawa. Great lighting, nice displays and cool entertainment all need to be recorded properly to really tell the story. We pride ourselves on not only getting the shots…but adding a creative touch.

Citizen Style Magazine Architectural Interior Photography /Ottawa

We shot these for a builder and the spread was picked up by our local newspaper, The Ottawa Citizen, for their glossy mag, Citizen Style. So nice to
see my work reproduced properly in good old print….it really separates solid technique from snap happy shooting that pervades much of the internet.
Come by the studio anytime to take a look at what quality looks like in print and on posters…yes, there is a difference.

Ottawa Redblacks Cheereaders Calendar

Creating a calendar for the Ottawa Redblacks was an interesting challenge.  I created the first ever calendar for the Ottawa Roughriders over 25 years ago and was asked to work on the first Redblacks calendar given not only my photographic skills but also my understanding of how far to go with this theme in today`s society. Cheerleading is a hot-button topic and what most people do not understand is that these cheer teams are composed of both men and women athletes.  They not only look good…they are people who contribute a lot of time to training for the routines and a lot more in community relations.  Are they sexy looking…yes. The key however is that they are also glamorous, healthy accomplished men and women and that is how I tried to portray them. To date, on social media we have seen two complaints…out of 25,000 fans….I guess we succeeded!

Ottawa Airport Photographs /Website/Annual Report Photography.

Photographing Ottawa Airport for a corporate website was a lot of fun…The highlight was that they used a snap I did when I was leaving for the carpark as one of the main shots….It`s great to work to a shooting schedule, but cool to be able to improvise and have a client with the good taste to recognize a shot that communicates their vision.

Ottawa Image Retouching

ottawa-image-retouching-01ottawa-image-retouching-02

We like to capture products right the first time and shoot so that there is as little retouching as possible….but sometimes that simply is not possible.
Try as we might, these products were a couple of those cases in which we went as far as we could with light and knew that it was time to let Photoshop happen…

Parliament Hill Chef

ottawa-portrait-2ottawa-portrait-01

I happened to be looking up some files and came upon these shots from a decade ago. This is Judson Simpson, Chef of the Parliament Hill restaurant. The first was shot for Air Canada`s Enroute mag about a decade ago and then a few years later I shot this group of Canada`s Culinary Olympic team using the same location. Yes, the winter shot was a bunch trickier, but these folks were real troopers that day.

I am reminded every day of what good fortune I have had to have enjoyed a career in the heyday of photography in Ottawa. Many clients, like Judson have been with us for a decade and some…amazingly…. for 40 years!
