One day in my life…

Capturehflhfljhajklfnsdjkfn

Photography studios get some odd calls…. Even after 35 years in the profession and over 100 awards, we still get asked…”What is your cheapest package?” Sometimes, callers tell us they compared us with other studios…using their Iphones.

Then there are days like today…when I get a FB message out of the blue that shows me why I still do what I do…

Looking for a deal on photography….sometimes the best deal is someone who over a thousand Ottawans have trusted to date…

We shot these at Ottawa`s Chateau Laurier hotel for Wedding Dreams….what a fun concept. Thanks to all our models, stylists, makeup, hairstylists assistants and to the Chateau Laurier. After probably more than 100 weddings at the Chateau it was fun to just play with a cool concept by Diana.

We shot this fashion editorial featuring Malabar outfits for Bella Magazine…My digital assistant Trevor and I played around with the images a bit…just a subtle hint of romance.
So far I have shot a half dozen medieval weddings…always fun to see someone doing up a theme. My fave was at the Chateau (where else) about five years ago and I still remember the details that Wedecor put into the reception…Another was at Mackenzie King`s Estate…fun times.

Ottawa Life Christmas Cover 2013

Capturemkukui

We have the largest studio space in the city and sometimes it comes in handy. This is the current cover of Ottawa Life featuring our fashion photography…
Most people don`t realize that fashion is some of the most challenging photography because timing, creating a look and knowing how to make a technically
superior photograph for magazine repro are no easy task.

Photoshop…What you need to know.

ottawa_family_photographer_29

 

Digital photography is something we have been doing for 15 years. We went from a full on darkroom to a bank of computers, pioneering some of the techniques ourselves. Understanding the technology and the process is not an easy task. Some clients now have an urge to make their own albums, prints and upload files to Facebook. What most do not realize is that straight out of the camera…. no matter how good the photographer captures an image…there is always room for improvement, or what we call post processing. This shot is an extreme example for effect, but most photographs can be improved with Photoshop. If the photographers talents are not up to par…then massive quantities of time are necessary. Perhaps this is something to consider on the front end when making your comparisons.

Buying a set of images that are on a memory stick the day after the wedding is generally not a bargain at all…

A lot of folks think we just shoot those big chi chi weddings with hundreds of guest and budgets to match. Yes, that`s us, but we also shoot intimate events in a tent on the Rideau.
I posted this one because it`s the third time we have had the privilege of covering a wedding for this family…Best of all….I also shot the parents wedding.
