Ottawa Classic Stairs – Ottawa Commercial Photography

Here is a look at a commercial job we did for Ottawa Classic Stairs. 

We loved photographing these beautiful stairs and bannisters. It gave us the creative freedom to test different angles and come up with interesting ways to capture interior designs. The  albums created with these images gave this company an excellent sales tool and showcased their exquisite craftmanship perfectly.  The books were printed in Italy by Graphi and looked absolutely stunning.

Here is what Guy Martin wrote after this commercial session; ” Some people see stairs as a way to get from one level to another. However, through the lens, I discovered intricate lines converging to create shapes and forms that transform a staircase into a true piece of ART.”

Commercial and interior photography assignements can be really fun and creatively stimulating. When we photograph people, technical skills and lighting are important, but the interaction with our client is the key to a great image. It is our job as a photographer to make the client look and feel comfortable in front of the lens to produce an image that they will love. When we do commercial photography… the challenge is in the lighting, the composition and the choice of lens. Photographing interiors is not easy. Factors to consider are: the time of day, extra lighting (flashes in hidden spaces to brighten up dark areas or to add texture), the choice of lens (a 200 mm for details, big open spaces with a 50 mm , smaller spaces with a wide angle), bracket exposure, height of the camera, vertical and horizontal lines, post processing, etc. Taking the time to do it right is the key. Here are a few images taken to showcase the talents of the designers and custom cabinets makers at Deslaurier  in Ottawa.

Paul Lewandowski Ottawa lawyer- Commercial Photography Ottawa

We continue to search for new and innovative ways to photograph our business and corporate clientele. When we photograph criminal lawyer Paul Lewandowski and his team, we always know we will create great ” out of the box” artistic images. Paul always has creative ideas and our job is to come up with cool angles, give ideas and reproduce his vision… This time, we ended up in the Diefenbunker museum tunnel at 3911 Carp Rd in Ottawa…..to then  finish our photography session on the Roof Top of a downtown Ottawa hotel. The heavy rain did not stop us from achieving our goal…and Paul was not going to stop until the job was done. A real example of his perseverance and work ethics… it’s no surprise he is the top criminal lawyer in Ottawa!  You can visit his web site by clicking  this link. Enjoy the preview.

Paul Lewandowski Criminal Lawyer – Ottawa Business/Corporate Photographers

Paul Lewandowski’s new website is very impressive, professional and full of great  information if you are looking for a criminal lawyer. If you want to see examples of business professional photography at it’s best, then visit his website at www.paullewandowski.com . He came to us with a concept and ideas of what he wanted his website to look like. During the consultation, we all gave our creative ideas and brainstormed together. With a clear vision of what we wanted as a final product,  the portrait session lasted three hours. We started in our indoor portrait studio in Cumberland Ontario, and the rest of the session took place at these Ottawa locations:   the ByWard Market, Tabaret Hall at the Ottawa University campus, the Fairmont Chateau Laurier and The Ottawa City Hall located at 10 Laurier Avenue West in Ottawa. Guy and I love creating powerful corporate images on location. Our city is beautiful and the portrait opportunities are endless. We accomplished our goal and created artistic business portraits for this team of lawyers!

We invite you to have a look at some of Paul Lewandowski’s images and to visit his web site.

Business Photography Ottawa- Fatima

Business Portraits are a big part of our business. You know what they say: You only have one chance to make a first impression! So, do it right! Fatima was a joy to photograph (even if she warned us many many times she did not like being photographed…) Let’s just say that by the end of the session, she had changed her mind …

Here is a testimonial from Fatima at  Inevitable Exodus Inc., after she received her business portrait;

Dear Julie & Guy,

My words are just not enough to express my gratitude. I love the photo you captured of me, you are amazing!!!

May you always be blessed.

Kristy – Ottawa Business & Portfolio Photography

 Here is a look at Kristy’s business & portfolio session. She needed one headshot for her resume and a few artistic ones to complete her portfolio.  These types of sessions are better during the day because we can mix the  natural light with flash. Enjoy the highlight!
