We shot these at Ottawa`s Chateau Laurier hotel for Wedding Dreams….what a fun concept. Thanks to all our models, stylists, makeup, hairstylists assistants and to the Chateau Laurier. After probably more than 100 weddings at the Chateau it was fun to just play with a cool concept by Diana.

Bella Magazine ///Ottawa Women`s Fashion Magazine Spread//Medieval Ottawa Wedding

MagazineMagazineMagazine

We shot this fashion editorial featuring Malabar outfits for Bella Magazine…My digital assistant Trevor and I played around with the images a bit…just a subtle hint of romance.
So far I have shot a half dozen medieval weddings…always fun to see someone doing up a theme. My fave was at the Chateau (where else) about five years ago and I still remember the details that Wedecor put into the reception…Another was at Mackenzie King`s Estate…fun times.

Ottawa Life Magazine Christmas Foldout Fashion Cover.

Shooting fashion is one of the trickier assignments in photography. Lighting, expression, layout all have to be just right to make the shot a success.

Photoshop…What you need to know.

Digital photography is something we have been doing for 15 years. We went from a full on darkroom to a bank of computers, pioneering some of the techniques ourselves. Understanding the technology and the process is not an easy task. Some clients now have an urge to make their own albums, prints and upload files to Facebook. What most do not realize is that straight out of the camera…. no matter how good the photographer captures an image…there is always room for improvement, or what we call post processing. This shot is an extreme example for effect, but most photographs can be improved with Photoshop. If the photographers talents are not up to par…then massive quantities of time are necessary. Perhaps this is something to consider on the front end when making your comparisons.

Buying a set of images that are on a memory stick the day after the wedding is generally not a bargain at all…

We shot these for the Ottawa Citizen`s STYLE magazine. I had pioneered Boudoir photography in Ottawa way back in the 80′s and we rounded up some of the original women to reprise a photo shoot…what lot of fun.

Ottawa Editorial Shoot/ Ottawa Business Photography.

 

We have now officially shot over 500 magazine covers, from Medical Journals, to trade publications to mags like Newsweek, Macleans and Time.  I love this stuff because it allows me to tell a story and solve a communication issue on the fly….a good challenge.
