A Professional Experience it is all about creating a simple, effective image of the client.
Before you hire ANY photographer “ask them about their experience” to ensure you hire someone who has proven experience and skills to execute a professional product. Creating head shot portraits is a very specific skill set requiring intimate knowledge of light, posing, proper focus and knowledge what does focal length do to a person’s face. Have them show you the work they have done and how they will achieve it.
The following are some the tips that will help you achieve a great image for your business portrait.
Tip #1. Keep it simple. When picking an outfit avoid patterns that can distract from the face. A professional portrait should focus on the subject – not on clothing or accessories they are wearing.
Tip #2. Hair and Makeup. Do not change your style too close to your session. Invest in professional services for a blow out and makeup as needed. When you feel your best you look your best.
Tip #3. Vary the Look. Our experiences allow clients to create a series of three looks. So bring a few looks from relaxed to corporate to get more out of your experience session with us.
Tip #4. Simple makeup. Keep makeup simple and natural. Avoid shimmer, sparkles and shine, as well as frost or bright colours. Any makeup should add to your natural beauty.
Tip #5. Accessories. Keep your accessories simple and classic. An accessory should be a compliment to your outfit not the star of the image. Remove watches and fitness trackers.
Tip #6. A good night’s sleep. We all look our best if we have had a good rest the night before. Schedule your session when this is possible for the best results.
Regrettably over 50% of the work we do in this area is a redoing of a bad experience with another photographer. Get the image you wanted the first time and book your experience with us.
Nestled in the south of Whitby’s modern urban landscape is Lynde Shores Conservation Area with groves of birch and pine trees, a water walkway and load of places to explore with wildlife. We spend a lot of time working on family photos in this location as it is a versatile spot with many different areas for blend of natural settings for your family experience.
We took a gold hour one evening in early October to capture the experience for this local family photos for Mom, Dad and the two kids. We walked the walkway, ran the walkway, tried to feed the bird but they were not hanging out that night and having fun running the trails and exploring the woods.
Enjoy a glimpse into their evening in this family video of their experience:
Capture the experience this winter in studio or in the snow! For more information send us an email via our Connect page.
We had a a blast covering this event and could not wait to share some images from the event. The look we used here was cinematic black and white but images are delivered in full colour (a little fun for this thespian couple) and set to a signature tune we use for many of our videos.
Videos along with a wide variety of story capturing media can be purchased with event sessions. For this couple we are creating a storyteller book to ensure they are enjoying the experience for years to come with family and friends.

We created this video to showcase the event, remind you of some of the facts that require us to fundraise for YWCA Durham‘s Y Wish Shelter and more. To have us cover your event please contact us on our Connect page.
We popped over to the orchard to check on the blossoms, orchard locations and capture some tests for the upcoming “The Blossom Experience“. The larger blossom trees have fallen but the whole orchard is in now in bloom so got some great captures of the two varieties showing off their blossoms.
There are still two spots open for this event – which is one of the few outside seasonals we host.
This location can be booked for family photos at any point in the year with advance notice to the wonderful owners of Hy Hope Farm & Golf Course. You must stop in after your session to enjoy the festival of blossoms on site with music, great homemade goods in the store and an artisan tent.
