Portrait Photography

From candid pictures in the park to home studio portraits, I'd be delighted to accommodate your preferences. Whether you're looking to beef up your online profile, or update the family photo on the living room wall, we can do it all.

A Jedi photographer - working for the light side

A long time ago, I photographed Lord Vader and a few of his stormtroopers. While they raged up and down about the dark side and darkrooms, I was able to quickly wow them over with the power of speedlights and lightroom. So ladies, if I can get these guys to crack a smile, then we'll have no problems getting your beau to participate in the photo! :)

Engagement Portraits

All my wedding photography packages include an engagement shoot, and I offer this extra value for three key reasons:

1) Engagement shoots are just totally fun, as you and me can both amp up our passions through photography!

2) Despite what the mass media would have you and me believe, most people do feel more unsure and self-conscious when standing in the cross-hairs of a 20-megapixel camera, and especially so when the white canons come blasting out. From how's my hair to what should I do with my hands and stiff posture, I'll be there to help you both out. With me you'll always feel relaxed and special while I help you feel better about you just being you. From experience, I will let you know what works well, and what to avoid. I will offer you some time-tested tips and tricks on how to naturally push your poses for both maximum appeal and thoughtful, classy display.

3) Nearly every photographer recognizes this enduring fact: no two wedding events are the same! And, the greatest reason for that from my experience is simply this: personality reins over custom. An engagement shoot gives us a chance to break the ice and get to know each other better. So, after 90-minutes I'll not only know what you like, but also, and more importantly, what makes you feel self-conscious so we can tackle and slap away that fear on your big day. Plus, when you see your engagement pics you'll have complete faith in me to deliver, and that's when things really begin looking more natural for the camera.

Newborn

It always feel nice when I'm called upon to photograph the newest members of our planet, and their guardians of the galaxy. What fascinates me most about newborn photography is the shear amount of facial expressions that can flash over a span of a single minute.

Children

I'm a pretty big kid at heart - I still play with Lego from time to time - so when it comes to photographing children I can blend right in by understanding their language and keeping up with their high octane energy.

Seniors

Seniors are very special too, and lest not be forgotten for all their sacrifices that have make life easier for those following them. So, as a small token of appreciation, anyone over the age of seventy seeking my photography goods and services automatically receives a substantial discount.

Family Portraits

Growing up I vividly remember my mom dragging me and my brother out to the Sears or Zellers portrait studio for our annual family photo update. Today, neither of those companies remain, and I can totally understand why more and more people would prefer to update their family photo outdoors or at their home. So, no worries, I'm fully mobile, and always ready to go whether it be your place, mine, or a city park!

The Holy Sacrament of Baptism

As a Roman Catholic, I am most familiar with the customs of the Christian Church and its seven sacraments, including Baptism. If you would like to have some pictures taken of this special moment, then you and your pastor can count on me to work in a discrete and respectful manner.

Graduation Portraits

On this fine day I had the pleasure of photographing a group of newly minted lawyers in front of the Supreme Court of Canada, whom had just passed their bar exam. Perhaps the best part was that I had no need to use a single lawyer joke to make these guys laugh out loud! Any form of graduation is a huge milestone, so celebrate the chapter with an image for life.

Fashion & Model

These days I rarely do fashion and modeling portraits, but it's the first form of photography that I performed ten years ago when I was just starting out! Wowsers, this section is a real flash-back, and most pro photographers would never share their oldest stuff online, but the simple truth is my photography skills have dramatically increased since I took these photos well over 7,8,9 years ago. Fashion photography presents a great many creative and technical challenges that would be fun to get back into now that I'm more experienced with shaping light and in the throws of building a 1,600 square foot studio.

Lifestyle Portraits

A critical part about being a professional photographer is helping people express their story - whatever it may be - and getting immersed in the culture and diversity of their moments. Featured here was a fun photo shoot that I did with the then Mr. Leather Ottawa.
