Drone Photography

We've now added drone photography to our photo options. The beauty of a drone shot is that it can capture the view from a few feet off the ground up to several hundred feet. It provides a new and exciting viewpoint. Aerial photography has always been one of the options we provided, but the viewpoint…

Spring Has Sprung

After a long, cold and dreary winter, it's great to be able to get on-location to capture some of the signs of spring. The big rage in golf course photography is drone shots, but frankly I'm tired of photos from 100 feet up. This photo is at the opposite end of the elevation scale, shot…

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…

This is a golf course?

One doesn't expect to see a golf course photo with snow! However, when the snow arrives early and provides wonderful contrast with the fall colour that is still on the trees, it creates a photographic opportunity. Just a few weeks earlier, it had looked like a beautiful par 3, radiant with fall colors. Which photo…

We've done hundreds of those, most often by bringing the studio to the office or factory. Other times, a corporate photos just needs to be within the environment that reflects the work of that business. Such was the case…

Studio Portraits

  I can't get over how lousy a lot of portraits look. Everyone has a camera in their phone so they take photos of their friends anytime, anywhere. And we end up seeing a lot of lousy personal photos with god-awful lighting, crazy shadows, and terrible color. So, to make the world a slightly better…

Morning Fog

  I love the morning light. The air is cleaner and there's a golden glow on everything. With the cooler morning temperatures, there was a lovely light fog hanging over 12 Mile Creek as the sun rose over the city. Landscape photography is all about being in the right place at the right time. And…

Spring on the Course

With the grass growing like crazy and the buds popping into blossoms, golf courses are at their spring-time best. This is the #1 green at St. Catharines Golf & Country Club. It's shot at the lovely time of the early morning when the sun peaks over the horizon and turns all the clouds into shards…
