Actor Headshots| Milton Mississauga Oakville Toronto

Loved working with this talented (and beautiful) girl! We did a variety of looks for her, using different backgrounds, both studio and natural window lighting, and of course several changes of clothing! The whole process took under an hour and she had her final edited shots within a few days!

Actor Headshots| Milton Burlington Oakville Mississauga Toronto

There are some people who are just naturals in front of the camera, and this young actor was certainly that! From the very first shot, he was relaxed and responded very well to my prompts! The whole session took about 30 minutes, and in that time we went through 4 different shirt changes, several changes of location/background, as well as many different poses. This is important, especially for a model/actor, since the agencies are going to want to see a variety of photos. Here are a few of the final results! (Did I mention how much I enjoyed working with him?!)

Model and Actor Headshots | Milton Oakville Mississauga Toronto

Time to catch up on some of my posts! (If you have been following my website and wish to see what I have been up to, make sure you check out my Instagram page, which I update quite frequently!)

Lately I have been getting more and more requests for model and actor headshots in the GTA. I have worked with clients who have been in the field for quite some time, as well as those who are looking at getting started and who need some photos to develop their portfolio. When working with models and actors, I always recommend bringing several changes of clothing. This will enable us to get a variety of different looks, which is important for talent agencies. We also do a variety of styles, from studio shots (with strobe lights) as well as natural light, and sessions can take place either indoors or outdoors.

And now…introducing…

Reagan! Totally reminds me of Kirsten Dunst! She came to me several months ago for her portfolio photo shoot, prior to applying to a model and talent agency in Toronto. I was so happy to hear that she is now signed with Sherrida,! Check out her profile page here! I am certain she is going to have a lot of cool opportunities ahead of her!

Here are some pics from our session together. Thanks so much to my makeup artist, Julia Szabo, for giving Reagan a beautiful look for our shoot!

Interior Design Photography| Toronto Milton Oakville Mississauga

IMG_7005

Let me start off this post by saying that Shannon Soro of Shannon Soro Interior Design (formerly Moving Designs) is an interior designer extraordinaire!  I got to spend the entire day with her a few weeks ago, going from one home to another and getting to photograph her incredible designs.  What impressed me the most was how unique each home was…custom designed with each of her clients in mind.  Nothing was duplicated.  Everything was perfect and absolutely refreshing, with the most meticulous attention to detail I have ever seen.  It was the type of work that you would see in upscale interior design magazines, and at the same time they were places that you would absolutely want to call home.  To enquire about Shannon’s services, please contact her directly at shannonsoro@rogers.com.

Engagement Photography|Milton Oakville Mississauga Toronto

It is always such an honour and pleasure for me to be given the opportunity to document important events in a person’s life.  When this amazing couple contacted me to photograph their wedding, I was thrilled. I knew they would be incredible to work with, and I was right.

Included in their wedding package was an engagement session, which I think is worthwhile for every couple to do.  An engagement session allows the photographer and clients to discuss details, to get to know each other better,  as well as for the couple to feel more comfortable in front of the camera before their big day arrives.

Business website photography |Milton Oakville Mississauga Toronto

I was recently hired to photograph a contracting company, Innovative Interiors, while they were “on the job”.  They wanted to have some photographs taken in order to use on their website as well as on social media sites.  Connections with people are so important, and if you have a website that shows who you are, and the type of work that you do, it gives potential clients the feeling of familiarity with you and confidence in your work before they hire you!

So up to Newmarket, Ontario, I went to photograph Kevin Kubinowa and his team at Innovative Interiors Contracting.  What a fantastic group of guys, who were masters in their fields and who who took pride in their work.  If you are interested in having renovations (minor or major) done to your home in the GTA, contact Kevin!  You won’t be disappointed!

Professional printing | Photography | Milton Oakville Mississauga Toronto

So…you’ve had your photos taken, received your digital copies.  Now what?  Well, as beautiful as the photos can be as screen savers or shared with your friends and family on social media, there is no better place for your photos than on the walls of your home where they become pieces of art and can be appreciated every day!
In this post I wanted to feature some photos that my clients had chosen to enlarge for their beautiful home.  And by enlargements, I mean large!!  (8×10 photos are fine if you wish to put them in a frame and place them on a desk or on a bookshelf, but are really much too small to hang on a wall…unless it is for a very small wall of a bathroom or near your front door, or if you were going to do a wall gallery on a larger wall.)
For the first photo (a fun family picture) they decided to do as a 30×40 acrylic print.  If you have never seen an acrylic print, they are simply beautiful!  Acrylic prints have amazing colour vibrancy and make a real statement in your home!   Easy to hang…no fuss!

The next family photo was printed as a “standout” in a 30×40.  (Standouts are beautiful and very durable!)  It was a smaller wall, at one end of their dining room.  The great thing about this size is that it made a statement and completed the wall, without having to add anything else to fill the wall space.  The colours of the photograph were also complimentary to their décor and their neutral walls, so it really tied everything together.

The final enlargement was also printed as a “standout”.  It was a black and white image of a moment between the father and son…(one of those “in between” shots that they didn’t know was being taken!).  It was printed as a 24×36, which was perfect for the space in between their window and hutch in their dining room.

IMG_2093

IMG_2097Finally, one question that I often get is why pay for professional printing services when you can go to WalMart or Blacks to print your photos?  The difference is in the quality.  The labs that photographers use to print your photos are of the highest quality, and basically ensure that the printers print exactly what the photographer intended in their editing.  At the beginning of my photography career, I often tested out printing services at various different photo labs that were local (due to the convenience), and it was so frustrating to view all the hard work that I spent on my editing just go out the window!  (The variation in colours that I was getting was huge, and skin tones were often really off!)  I started sending my photographs away to be printed at professional labs, and what a difference!  Finally, all my hard work in editing could be replicated in print!  The other reason for going with professional printing services is that when doing enlargements, photographers will go back to the original RAW images, and recrop them to the specific dimensions for the print, and will submit photos that are up to 25 MB+  in size (rather than the small files that clients receive on CD/DVD.)

Family Photography | Milton Oakville Mississauga Toronto

One of the best things about being a photographer is having the opportunity to meet so many different families, to develop friendships with them and to see their kids grow up from one session to the next!  I met this amazing family for the first time in 2011 when they were given a gift certificate for a family session.  They had never had professional family photography done before, and were so appreciative of their gift!  This summer, two years later, I received a call from them again, since they had their niece and their children’s grandmother visiting from Argentina and wanted to capture some special photographs to remember this important visit.  (Their niece was celebrating her “quinceañera”, and they wished to have some portraits done of her to mark this event.)  Here are a few photos from their session, which took place at Mill Pond in Milton, Ontario.  (To view, click on the first photo and scroll through.  Also, to subscribe to my blog, please enter your email address in the space provided below!)
