About

MD_March2015-8x10

I am an award winning,  Nationally Accredited,  Professional Photographer based in Timmins, Ontario who loves to create beautiful images of people.

My specialty is capturing someone’s essence at a moment in time to create a memorable image that will last a lifetime.

Your Portrait session is very important to me. I want to create the best possible images for you and your family while capturing natural expressions that show who you really are.   I don’t think of the people I photograph as clients, but rather as friends.

Quality portraits that look relaxed, flattering and make you feel great when you see the images take planning and that will start when we have a complimentary design consultation.

Although this planning will take a little extra time, I believe that your portrait is worth it, don’t you agree? That’s why I plan on going the extra mile to create these valuable memories that you will cherish for years to come.

If you live in Timmins or the surrounding area, I look forward to hearing from you to discuss your photography needs.

FAQ

Are you a legitimate Professional Photographer, or Just a guy with an expensive camera?

That is a really important question and something you should consider before trusting your special moments with just anyone.   I am a Professional Photographer who is Nationally accredited with the Professional Photographer’s of Canada (PPOC).  The PPOC  is a diversified group of creative artists dedicated to the highest standards in professional imaging.  It is the oldest and most respected Photographic association in Canada.

How important is it to hire a professional?

Unlike Lawyers or accountants, the Photography industry does not have legislated business practices.  For this reason, I feel that it is so important for me to conduct myself and my business transactions with the utmost professionalism.  For this reason,I adhere to the PPOC’s Code of Ethics.  I also use only Professional grade gear, have backup gear in case of a problem and maintain business liability insurance.

Can I Call you for a Consultation?

Absolutely!   In fact, I would never dream of photographing your special moment without learning more about your needs.   The Design consultation will give us an opportunity to talk about clothing choices, likes, dislikes, location or studio and a variety of other topics.   These consultations can be done over the phone,  or in person.

Do you Travel?

I would be happy to travel to your location.  An additional fee may apply, depending on the distance from the studio.
