The Visual Story of a CAO : Matthew Gaskell

Trinity-Design-2618RR-MG-WEB-HEADSHOT

A headshot session is an opportunity to create a portrait that connect clients, colleagues and more with the subject. Matthew is an “accomplished municipal leader who possesses the ability to envision and implement strategic changes to service delivery and deliver mission-critical results.” His portrait needed to align with his career.

For Matthew’s portrait we used a familiar location and paired it with key wardrobe choices to create a strong, professional and approachable look.

LOcation – Brock St Espresso, Whitby
The soft light of the windows at Brock St Espresso are amazing for strong natural light, headshots with catch lights in the eyes.

For Matthew’s portrait we used a familiar location and paired it with key wardrobe choices to create a strong, professional and approachable look. Using both a suit and a more casual jacket/vest combination to create variety in his options (our The Professional Experience sessions give you three headshot images).

We love it when the client shows up in Trinity Design purple accessories.

Jingle Dresses : Exhibition Photography (Station Gallery)

Jingle Dresses : Exhibition Photography (Station Gallery)

Colour dances off the walls of the art entitled “Ziibaaska’Iganagooday | Jingle Dresses” by artist Christian Chapman and encircles the gallery walls. Screen prints with pops of colour such as orange, blue, teal showcase each dress, each woman, and each story.

As a photographer we came in to document the works for the gallery who wish to document the work accurately. Showcasing the brush strokes on each painting paired with the screen printing was a key component of the job. The modern techniques of Andy Warhol bring a modern twist to this series – “while injecting humor, irony and recognizable content into his unique mashup.” (Station Gallery exhibition write up).

"Each dancer has her hands on her hips, staring into the camera with solid confidence, purpose, and pride. It is a precise juncture for adaptation and prayer." 
(from the words of Leanna Marshall )

To document the storytelling of another artist is a great honour and we love sharing these visual stories.

To see all the works in this exhibition visit the Station Gallery May 31 – June 30, 2019 in the Coppa Gallery & Heritage Galleries.
