…are ones who have already had their products photographed.
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…
We shot with Kurt when he was one of Ottawa`s top television personalities on CTV. His new incarnation is going to make quite a splash in the Ottawa real estate biz and we were only too happy to help. I wanted to do a traditional shot for a range of purposes and we also planned a “fun” shot, since that is a hallmark of Kurt`s appeal on television and now in sales. The chair thing just popped into my head and I guess you could call that…inspiration. It is good to have a plan…but just as good to improvise.
A great portrait is not an expense…it`s an investment.
Might seem like a cliche, but the cost of a great image is a tiny portion of what you will spend to use that image over the years. In todays`s world of a zillion images bombarding the consumer it is critical that yours stands out among the crowd.
These are some recent examples of portraits shot in my Gladstone St studio. Having a large space allows me to do things with light and with people that no other studio in the city can….lucky me.
I photographed artist Christopher Griffin in my Gladstone Studio while he was in the process of carving these amazing polar bears out of styrofoam.
He later coated them with concrete…but I loved the texture before even more…They now sit in a medical office in Ottawa.
