Ottawa Bar Mitzvah

A Bar Mitzvah is fun…but for twins…as they say, double the fun. These coverages require both the ability to create classic portraits as well as capture all the fun of the party in photojournalism style coverage.

Enjoy the party…

Museum of Civilization Korean Wedding.

I have always felt that the best way to compare photographers is to see a whole wedding, not just a couple of shots…
Serge, a veteran photographer at the studio covered this wedding last fall. Among other claims to fame he is Francophone and was once the PM’s staff photojournalist.

Enjoy

Ottawa Photo Restoration


Photo restoration can be a rewarding process. Whether it involves saving a treasured memory or helping out a bride whose photographer doesn`t want to create an album, we really enjoy the challenge. You know, the first thing most people grab when their house is on fire is their photo album…not their computer. Long live prints!!!

A bit of a different ad…

We decided to get a little arty with our newest magazine ad. We create them all in house and frankly, I enjoy it quite a lot. For those who have emailed to ask…yes, we create all our own website and ad work . You can pay for a cookie cutter site from a range of suppliers
but we like to be innovators in both our work and our ads. In today’s world you need both artistic
style and technical know how to succeed in business…especially photography.

A new print for our window.


We finally had a few minutes to make a new print for our studio window on Gladstone. Isn’t it always the way…you plan to get those prints made, but life gets in the way…even for us. Makes me wonder about all those couples who purchase hi res files to make their own albums. A friend who owns the biggest lab in the city tells me its actually rare that couples make a real album with prints. Kinda sad and ironic at the same time. All that money spent on a wedding and 25 years from now their kids will wonder what people did with those round plastic things with a hole in the middle…
Oh well, this family had a beautiful print on their wall a few weeks after the session…its what we do after all.
