Ottawa Architectural Photography


This was a shot for a local magazine, Homes and Land, that I was particularly happy with. While I was shooting it, another photog ran around for the real estate company and probably did
50 shots in the time I spent doing one…For some reason they chose mine for the cover of the mag…hmmmn. I have no idea why someone would try to sell a million dollar house with a ten cent picture, but it happens all the time. To date, after a year with this mag, I estimate my work has helped sell ten million in homes. Seems simple to me, large corporations don`t spend the time on their images because they are philanthropists…they know it works.

Ottawa Executive Portaits

Commercial photography is not just shots of guys in mines (though I have done that too) but its also images that serve the purpose of showing executives and sales personel in a manner in which their image sells the company vision.

The net provides a great way to see exactly what talents a photographer has and its been a great boon to my portrait business. Potential clients who see our work on the net and still decide based on the lowest quote…well…we are happy to do their next portrait…and that is a common occurance.

I just can`t figure out why a person appointed to select a photographer for their boss would take the chance to shop solely on price, expecially when the spread between a great photog and the bargain basement is so small. Nor can I figure out why a real estate salesperson would save a hundred on a portrait that they spend tens of thousands running over the next couple of years…funny.

Ottawa Dog Portrait

Dogs are great in photos…give me dogs any day rather than cats…and I have three of the
felines at home. The shoot took a grand total of five minutes with such a cooperative model.
To date we have photographed cats, dogs,birds, rabbits and horses….and a range of smaller pets.
No snakes please…although perhaps my current assistant might be ok with them….

Don`t be shy, bring that animal in when you book your family…we are all animal lovers.

Wanna see more……click away…

Corporate Photography Ottawa Annual Report

This might look like a casual snap of the staff at LIVE 88….but every square inch was art
directed by a Toronto Agency.

Ottawa Fashion Portfolio Shoot


Having a large studio affords me lots of opportunity to shoot big groups but also lets me
create more action in sessions. This is from a recent model portfolio shoot.

Rental of the studio to an Ottawa ad agency for filming.

Aha…here is a better shot of the studio during a rental to a local ad agency for filming
a corporate video….and no, we won`t rent it for your Christmas party.
We have decided to be a little more selective on our rentals so we will not do any one
day rentals that involve complete soundproofing unless they are done on a weekend.

UPDATE…we just set up a page to view details of the rental studio here.

Ottawa Children`s Portraits.

I really hate November…Whats there to like anyway….its cold, its a wish washy month,
outdoor shoots look blah and besides…its gray…

Soooo….here is a nice outdoors portrait just to make us all feel better. I have photographed these kids every year for the parents Christmas card…for the last decade. Apparently, it is highly
anticipated by the family and friends and a top secret project…no, this is not this years…you`ll have to wait.

Ottawa Glamour and Boudoir Photography

We started glamour and boudoir photography in Ottawa in the early nineties. My first big project was the Ottawa Rough Riders Cheerleaders Calendar, which landed us on the front page
of the Citizen for the scandalous behaviour of making women look sexy…lol
Well, Ottawa has come a long way since then and today, this type of image is more common than
most people imagine as a gift for the boyfriend or even as a wedding gift. Around Valentines day
we sell a lot of gift certificates…hint hint.
Sessions are done at our large Centretown studio and we always have a female in attendence at the shoots. Dozens of photogs have come and gone in the boudoir biz…we`re still the original.
One of my images won Best Portrait in Ontario some years back.
For more images, visit our site…or come in to the studio. We have a lot of images that our clients do not want to be seen online that we have been allowed to show you in the studio.

Ottawa Product Photography

This looks easier than it is…

Note to self…never put a round metallic object beside a cylindrical metallic object.

The image is in the current issue of InStyle…
