Headshots:  Putting a Face to the Name You only get one chance to make a first impression. Your headshot will do a lot of talking for you. Face it (pun intended): in today’s world, visuals matter.

Film Photography: Why I’m Re-Learning How To Shoot

2017-07-20T23:45:49-04:00

Film Photography Until this year, I hadn't touched a roll of film since 2010.  It was an average-weather day in October, and I was wandering through a nature park with a friend shooting nature and landscape photos.  I had been shooting with a digital camera since 2005 (still a bit late to the party, [...]

Great Portrait Locations Around Montreal

2017-06-22T20:11:48-04:00

Portrait locations: So where do we go to shoot? Over the years, I've shot a lot of weddings.  I've also shot a lot of wedding portraits in so many different locations.  Some portrait locations come up again and again... and again (I'm looking at you, Old Montreal) and some are out-of-the-way places I've only [...]

Becoming Psychic This is the third and final part of my Sports Photography Tutorial.  The first two parts covered the main equipment: the camera and the lens.  Now, we're going to take a look at the most important piece of the equation: You.  The photographer. There is a skill to shooting sports that goes [...]

Sports Photography – An Introduction: The Camera Body

2017-04-16T00:51:17-04:00

Sports Photography: The Camera Last time we focused on what is probably the most important piece of equipment in sports photography: the lens.  Now we’re going to take a look at the second-most important thing: the camera body itself.  While the best camera in the world can only record what the lens shows it, [...]

Sports Photography – An Introduction: The Lens

2017-04-16T00:54:13-04:00

This is the first tutorial, and it’s fitting that it’s on the type of photography I enjoy the most: action and sports photography.  To start, we should discuss the obvious: the gear that you need to have.  Since you generally can’t get too close to a football player in the middle of a game, [...]

FINA 2014

2017-04-16T13:57:33-04:00

Instagram: Week 1

2017-04-16T14:01:58-04:00

Instagram I finally gave in and signed up for an Instagram account a little over a week ago (edit: this post was originally written in January 2017).  I've never been crazy about social media, but I accept that this is the new reality.  Everything that happens in society today, happens on social media.  If [...]

Why should you hire a professional real estate photographer in Montreal? Image matters.

2018-07-30T16:19:14-04:00

First impressions matter The biggest reason for hiring a professional real estate photographer to shoot photos of your property is quite simple: quality.  Nobody will deny that a bright, sharp, well-exposed photo of a room will make that room feel more inviting than a photo that’s dark, blurry, grainy, distorted and/or uneven.  The equipment [...]
