Corporate Head Shots on White

Today I was photographing a large number of corporate head shots.  For the images to be consistent over a half day of shooting, we decided to go with a white background to make the images all uniform and to allow for the most options for various layouts.

Whistler Municipal Government Photography

Municipal Government Photography for the Resort Municipality of Whistler, British Columbia, Canada

I am proud to have finished the summer portion of one of the largest contracts I have completed to date.  The Resort Municipality of Whistler in British Columbia, Canada contracted me and another photographer to create a corporate image library that covered all aspects of the local municipal government.  The project required a lot of planning and logistics to capture all of the images as all facilities, services and programs needed coverage. Over the course of the summer portion I photographed the municipal composting facilities, waste water treatment plant, recreation programs, public works, village maintenance, local commerce, utilities, road works, public works yard, parks, parks maintenance, engineering, trail maintenance, the valley trail network, tennis facilities, waste management, building department, commercial construction and public safety included bylaw services, municipal fire services and the local RCMP police force. The municipal government photography will be used for government communications with the public, to promote recreational programs including swimming, gym, sports and summer camp programs and to promote government facilities and programs that enhance Whistler as an all season world class destination.

The project required several skill sets as a photographer covering commercial, industrial, portrait, landscape and architectural photography. The Municipal Government Photography was captured at several indoor and outdoor locations throughout Whistler and required various lighting techniques and equipment. The municipal staff were thrilled with the images so far and look forward to using the images in their external and internal communications.

I am excited to add this Municipal Government Photography to my diverse photography portfolio and to completing the winter portion of the contract. The winter portion of the contract will cover ice skating facilities, cross country skiing facilities, snow clearing along with events and festivals.  I hope to work with other municipal and provincial governments to photograph their operations, services and staff in action.

Corporate Head Shot Isolated on a White Background

Today I did a corporate head shot isolated on a white background for the mortgage specialist at my local Royal Bank Branch.  Head shots done on a white background are popular for the flexibility they provide for various layouts and give a clean crisp look with no distraction from the background.

ATV Photographs in the Callaghan Valley

As part of my summer shot list for Tourism Whistler, I was out with Canadian Wilderness Adventures in the Callaghan Valley to photograph their ATV tours.  The Callaghan offers amazing scenery and some great, adventurous terrain.

Audain Art Museum Construction

Axiom Builders contacted me to document part of the Audain Art Museum construction.  The gallery which will be complete in the fall of 2015 will be a stunning building featuring unique construction details.  My job was to capture details of the iron work before the roof was installed.  Once complete the 56,000 sq. foot museum will host Michael Audain’s extensive art collection. I have been increasing my industrial portfolio for various clients and look forward to doing more of this work in the future.
