This is Florence Hannay who recently received a Governor General`s award for her lifelong work as a volunteer. She had not been in a portrait studio for decades and I was honored that
she chose my studio to immortalize her for the occasion.
This is my recent portrait of General Lewis MacKenzie who led our forces in the Peacekeeping Mission in Bosnia.
Fascinating conversations are frequently part of my week…but chatting with General Mackenzie had to be the highlight of last week. I really should write that much threatened book…oh well, one day.
We create a lot of buzz for businesses in Ottawa. This was shot for one of the rising Real Estate stars, Chris Lacharity and his team. I went a bit beyond the call of duty on this one…and they seem to have liked it as it`s popping up in ads, the web and billboards around town. Cool images sell things….period.
I wanted to create something a bit different for Boom 99.7 We do quite a few shoots for local radio and television promos and it is always a fun type of personality to work with. Brent and Michelle had definite ideas on how they should look and the teamwork
between them and my studio created this image that was used in Status Magazine.
We photograph a lot of politicians on all levels of government. This shoot was done for a CBC PR campaign. I negotiated to own the rights to these portraits and this has proved to be a valuable resource in stock sales.
Thanks to my super Photoshop staff, we were able to put together this group portrait. I actually had them all in the same studio, but getting four great expressions would have been too complex within the time frame allotted.
This was the third time I was hired to photograph a group of Canadian PM`s…what an experience!
