Portrait Session

Photographing the Brock University Badger curlers is my way of supporting these student athletes. They need team photos to the websites and programs that are part of national competitions.

Back Light, Best Light

Winter light can often be soft and diffused on the cloudy days that are so frequent in the winter solstice. Not every day has a bright, blue sky with white, puffy clouds. Maybe it does on post-cards but not in the real world. But, cloudy days, and chilly winter days can still be a source…

Just a few weeks earlier, it had looked like a beautiful par 3, radiant with fall colors. Which photo…

On Location Photos

Sometimes a corporate portrait is just a studio-based head shot. Neutral background, controlled and flattering lighting. We've done hundreds of those, most often by bringing the studio to the office or factory.

The Old Sod

Our love of golf course photography continues to blossom. We were fortunate to spend two weeks in Scotland, visiting many of the links courses in county Fife, along the North Sea. This cliff-hanger of a golf hole, is the 17th at the Castle Course at St. Andrews. Not far, but an intimidating golf shot over…
