We had fun shooting Angie for the cover of Capital Style, which also featured our coverage of Ottawa Fashion Week. Capital Style is distributed to subscribers of the Globe and Mail and available on newsstands including Chapters across Canada.
Flashy web sites, funky music and a smooth sales pitch…
A deal from a friend of a friend…
How to decide……..
We think dependability and service are important and perhaps that is why we are the only studio in Ottawa with a AAA+ rating.
We had a great time shooting for Movember at Lago. The crowd of moustache wearers was just fantastic. Not only did they come in costume, but they hammed it up for the camera on cue…party on gang.
What do Lady Gaga and myself have in common….well, we both like Mercura. Yes, this company makes glasses for Lady G, but also Elton John and a host of famous folks. Hell, I think they have been featured on more magazine covers than I have shot…
To get the full impact of what we shot, you really need to view them on my site on a large hi def monitor…enjoy.
I spent the morning shooting a very complex set of images for a legal firm, a project that has been ongoing for a few years. I can`t tell you about it, but I can talk about an anecdote I told the lawyers while we were on a break.
Some years back, I was called to the stand as a witness during a trial in which I had done some photographic recreation of an accident. The young lawyer for the defence immediately tried to challenge my credentials, which is often a good gambit. He asked…and how Mr Couvrette do you feel qualified as an expert witness in this case. My response….” I own the longest standing studio in Ottawa and have photographed over 1000 lawyers to date. As well, I have carried out official photographer duties for the Tax Court, the Federal Court and the Supreme Court of Canada for over 25 years and have testified in over 20 cases….” He tried to cut me off…but I added that “I am a Master Photographer and Judge of the Professional Photographers of Canada and the Professional Photographers of America….”
Finally…he managed to sputter…No further questions…
One of the oldest sayings in the law business is, “Never ask a question you don`t know the answer to…”
We had a blast working with Internationally renowned Jazz singer Diane White. Glasses were by Mercura and Makeup by Leslie Ann.
