Timea’s Business Portrait

Professional financial planner Timea came to me after being consistently disappointed with her previous business portraits.  She sent me a note after seeing the dozen or so previews that I posted from her studio session: "I like all the pictures, for the first time ever!"

Allison’s Family Portrait at Bronte Harbour

Allison liked the business portrait that I produced for her a couple of years ago, so she recently contacted about doing a family portrait. Our discussions led us to Bronte Harbour, where I photographed her trio as the sun set. The results work beautifully as a centrepiece display print.

Brooklynn in Gown and Jersey

Brooklynn's mom wanted a professional portrait to commemorate Brooklynn's graduation from Dalhousie University. Brooklynn took the opportunity to have me produce some portraits of her wearing her varsity hockey gear.

Facial Hair, Friends and Fun: Mini Portrait Studio Service at Theta Omega Mo Mo-Down 2013

Since 2011, Lumacraft Photography has provided event photography service for the Theta Omega Mo Mo-Down. This annual party kicks off Movember "Theta Omega Mo" HQ Burly's month long charity drive in support of Movember.

This year, in addition to documenting the happenings, I provided a mini portrait studio service, with 100% of the proceeds collected donated to the cause. I set up in a small athletic change room and shower room, with enough space to light and photograph one or two people at a time. However, there is no sense in trying to maintain any sense of order at an event like this! Here are some of the highlights .. in a couple of cases, what happens in a shower room / photo booth, has to stay in the shower room / photo booth!
