Modern portraits can have various “looks”. I think there is a place for studio portraits..besides, they can still be cool…and we can charge a lot less, since we are not lugging our gear on site.
Now what do these funky family shots have to do with commercial photography. For the answer, go to Winning Charities and check out their site, especially the staff head shots.This group came to our studio in Ottawa from Brockville just to do the shoot. We came up with the concept and I think it really works in todays business environment where showing more than a corporate look
can separate you from the crowd. Nice working with you guys and gals.
BTW….this just came in from the client….unsolicited.
I wanted to let you know that our website is slowing working its way to completion. We have a few pages online, at www.winningcharities.com
Thanks again for the great day at your studios. We had a great time, and the website (and soon to be marketing materials) are going to look great because of it.
Hope we can work together again. We highly recommend you!

Travelling to do commercial photography is one of those fantasies that is a lot more idyllic than realistic. I am happier when I get clients from other parts of the world…and they come to me!
We have catered to Toronto execs who actually flew in for a portrait, New York musicians who drove here and even a lady from Newfoundland who came all that way for a boudoir shoot.
Lately we have had a run of clients from along the St Lawrence. We had a lot of fun with this real estate group who drove up from Kingston for a shoot for their upcoming web site.
Then I saw this and wow.
Awwww Thanks ladies!
We shot these for a bridal salon in Saudi Arabia. Now how did we get a client from
Saudi…long story. Oh, btw, we do travel to destination weddings and have shot weddings in the
USA, Jamaica and a number of Canadian cities. Still waiting for one in Vegas…if you`re going…lets make a deal!
The makeup is by Layali Almobasher for her Salon in Qatif.
If you look a few posts down you will see a familiar face… as I photographed this clients wedding a couple of years ago. She is still a “horse person” and I guess it runs in the family as the groom is a blacksmith….
As you can see from my fine art shot….the little one already has some boots…lol.
Here are a couple of recent pregnancy portraits of one of our clients. These are priceless memories…I know….we show our shots to our kids and they love ’em.
I had previously photographed this client for a bodybuilding portfolio last year. Return clients
are the best testimonial to our work…
We shot this for a makeup salon in Saudi Arabia… How did I get a client in Saudi Arabia…that’s a long story. Our model btw was from Angies in Ottawa…very nice working with them as always.
Owning a large Centretown studio brings us lots of interesting shoots. This motorcycle was shot
for a major US magazine. Lighting this much chrome without any reflections,priceless….hey,don`t try this at home kids.
