Ottawa Architectural Photography/ Museum of Nature

  The Museum of Nature is a national gem. It is actually located just a couple of blocks down the street from my studio…gotta  love Ottawa. We shoot conventions, weddings and special events there pretty well every month or so…always a great location.

BTW, that last remark wasn’t aimed at you, Paul!

Quite a lovely image, Paul…that you can make a ceiling its own poetic best. Having been perusing your work for some time now, I’ve been meaning to tell you what impresses me personally, is that it’s like a marriage of creativity to technical virtuosity. One just can’t survive without the other. An artist’s tools and technique are the foundation building blocks for creativity to be even possible. I can see in your posts the full measure of what it takes in drive, ambition, and sheer hard work itself, still being expended to a very high level of achievement. This is affirmed in the rightful admiration of so many people for whom you’ve succinctly captured a magic event, or an achievement of character…or who appreciate your generosity in sharing a bit of the very interesting days of your career and life events intertwined….

Ottawa Portrait of Canadian Comedian Mike MacDonald

We shoot a zillion portraits, but rarely does a guy like comedian extraordinaire Mike MacDonald come along. A few hours after the shoot
I was still sore from laughing. There were probably 20 great shots…but I narrowed it down to this trio for the purposes of PR for the “What a Girl
Wants” and Canadian Comedy Festival gala promos. Mike has threatened to come back for another shoot and bring a video camera…get ready for viral madness Youtubers.

Ottawa Business Portrait

We photograph a lot of lawyers…from the Tax Court to the Supreme Court to every major firm in Canada. We also work for a lot of people in the intel business, but if I told you who…well, you know.

I found Yves to be one of the most diplomatic gentlemen I have met in a long while…and his resume may well be the most impressive I have seen to date.

Ottawa Landmark Photography/Stock Photos

We sell a fair bit of stock photography and these two are images that I have recently added to our library. For those out of town…this is our Parliament Building Centre Block and our Supreme Court of Canada.

I should take a minute to point out that copying these images is of course illegal. Every year we prosecute dozens of people who for some reason believe that they can use our images with impunity. Generally, we bill thieves at three times the normal stock usage fee. This fee is published on our site.

Welcome to the wild west of the internet…but if you are gonna decorate your saloon with my images…

Business Portrait/Resources Minister Joe Oliver

We have been creating business portraits for over three decades in Ottawa. It would make a newbie green with envy… Some are portrayed with a conservative style…some with a more liberal approach to posing. My work is always new and we are of course quite democratic with who we choose to photograph….

Ottawa Product Photography

Shooting jewellery requires specialized equipment, patience and a good eye for detail. We shot these for an Ottawa jeweller who is launching a new line of engagement rings…Truth be told, another studio had already shot the site images.
We find that roughly half our clients come to us once they have had something done wrong and ask us to solve their problem…These are actually some of our favorite clients since they finally realize that getting the lowest quote is generally
a recipe for disaster in most situations. More and more people today know the price of everything and the value of nothing…in photography there are no shortcuts to creating great images.
