We shot these for an Ottawa car dealer`s website…a quick little shoot that serves to show his facility online.
Congrats to Kathleen Wynne on becoming the first female Premier of Ontario. I shoot for all political parties on all levels of politics and I guess one of my “claims to fame” is that I am the only photographer who has done portraits of every Prime Minister of Canada from Pierre Trudeau to Stephen Harper.
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.
