ARCHITECTURE

Architectural photography is a specialized art: how best to showcase a building, its interior and its details. Appropriate lighting (whether existing or augmented), choosing the right angle, staging where necessary/desired, choosing the right time of day; these are all part of creating the !WOW! that will show the world just how beautiful and elegant your structure is.

SOME CLIENTS I’VE WORKED WITH:

CORPORATE

Corporate sessions enhance and showcase your business, your team members and all that you hold dear and value.

Understanding your business and your branding are important parameters in determining the outcome and success of your session. Is staging required? Are props to be included? How did you and your company want to be perceived? Is this for an annual report or AGM? A quarterly magazine? What is the deadline?

An initial consult is vital to helping all concerned understand all the requirements and any potential pitfalls that need to be addressed.

Lifestyle Portraits are all about what is important to YOU: your significant other, your kids, your families.

Translate your expressions into a timeless work of visual art; keep your kids “hanging around” (on your wall, that is!).

Let your destination be our destination; allow your dreams to materialize.

Commercial sessions are no different than Corporate sessions in that they enhance and showcase your business, your team members and all that you hold dear and value.
