We have a new client that is…well…out of this world. Did I mention that I get to shoot some cool things in my career?
This vid from the mothership is fantastic…
I just saw one of my shots of Melanie Aitken in the Globe and to my surprise she is leaving the Competition Bureau.
One of the most enjoyable parts of my career is meeting smart cookies like Melanie….oh…and I ocassionally take a snap of them.
This is good old fashioned bread and butter photography at a commercial studio like ours. It all looks easy enough until you actually shoot the stuff. Getting the exact colors of the packaging, shooting things sharp enough to make bus billboards and comping shots together actually requires a bit of skill…who knew?
Frankly, I enjoy this stuff because helping small business succeed is really rewarding. Small business is the biggest business in Canada.
Researching and hiring a commercial photographer is not a simple task. While one would think that the internet has made it easier…in fact, the opposite is true.
With the advent of digital cameras, even an advanced amateur can go out and blast away at an event, eventually coming up with a few good shots from their paparazzi assault and voila…instant photography website from the 20 best shots and a new photographer is born. If only it was that easy…
What separates a pro from the herd is the ability to nail that key shot EVERY time, to make that exec feel relaxed in front of the lense and frankly…to see that angle and that light that few others really SEE.
We have been at this for longer than I care to tell you and you know what…we have seen hundreds come and go.
Our studio is the one they call when they need a Time Magazine cover shot on the presses within the hour, when a company needs images that kick butt on the website, or when a photographer has to travel to the Arctic circle for a photo op that lasts three minutes and simply has to be done right.
Secrets to our success…well, great customer service, 30+ years experience, a large Centretown studio..oh and some great staff.
Don`t just take my word for it though… http://www.couvrette-photography.on.ca/Couvrette_Reference_page/
I recently shot an editorial and portrait assignment at the Cordon Bleu on Laurier Avenue in Ottawa. Now you know how they make those amazing desserts…It`s a great spot for a wedding, a party…or even a place to learn how to make French toast.
We do a lot of corporate headshots. I am fairly certain it is because companies value their executives time and can`t afford to have someone mess up. Perhaps that`s why large companies put their trust in us. Some of our clients have
been with us for over 30 years.
