Beautiful and memorable portraits do not just happen, they are carefully planned. Personal portraits of individuals, families, children, corporate personnel, students, grads or just about anyone else you might imagine can be easily arranged, then taken. Please look over the following suggestions to see how you may participate in the creation of your personal portrait. Clothing which uses solid colors is often the best. Avoid large, bold patterns. Select clothing which is considered classic. This will produce a portrait which can be enjoyed for years to come. Darker clothing tends to minimize body size while lighter tones tend to emphasize body size. Co-ordinate the clothing of all subjects in a group portrait. Too many busy patterns and colors may be distracting in a group portrait. Select a color theme that flows. While all the colors do not have to match, they should be harmonious with one another.
An event photographer attends an event and records its highlights. As such, I am able to supply quality digital images for a wide range of corporate, social, sporting and private functions. My expertise allows me to cover most indoor and outdoor events — anywhere within a day’s drive of Niagara — or beyond if required and arranged ahead of time. I offer your event's participants professionalism, experience, competitive pricing and a wide range of products for the delivery of your final images. So whatever, whenever and wherever your function, I will endeavor to cover all of your photographic needs.
sports & team imagery
Sports photography is all about timing. Its about reaction. Its about being in the right place at the right time and its about execution. These are all qualities of the athlete and must be qualities of the photographer as well. Each sport has both predictable and unpredictable moments. Individual sports have opportune moments for that perfect shot. For instance, in basketball, you will have opportunities to photograph lay up shots, jump shots or free throws. In rowing, you strive to catch the crew’s blades as they uniformly enter the water. Understanding the timing of these predictable actions allows you to capture the peak moment, when the action is most dramatic. By recognizing these moments you can anticipate the action and as such, snap the shutter just at that right time. Having participated in and coached sport, I am aware of these requirements for recording that perfect shot and strive to capture them for you too. In addition, I shoot team photos to which I am able to add logos, names and related information in a visually pleasing manner.
theater & stage imagery
When it comes to the digital recording of event imagery, theatrical, dance and performing arts photography are amongst my favorites. My expertise includes theatrical production photography, rehearsal photographs and poster imagery. I am an annual contributor to numerous theatrical and school groups in the Niagara region and have photographed and helped them promote more than two dozen theatrical features over the past sixteen years. I have enjoyed combining my knowledge of photography with many memorable stage productions. In addition, my expertise in post production work such as lighting, color correction, cropping, logo application and such, makes for professional and attractive end products.
