How My Favourite Photography Lenses Make YOU Look Incredible

favourite photography lensI’m a Canon user, but hardly ever use the standard kit lens that comes with the camera. Every photography professional knows kit lenses are just OK. And boring.

Instead, my personal two favourite lenses (for now) for photo shoots are:

  1. 50 mm prime lens from Canon, perfect for portraits because the shallowness really pulls focus on my subject, and
  2. 70 mm lens from Sigma, which captures a much sharper image than the prime, allows for me to be further away from my subject and still offers a good 4.0 aperture.

Knowing how to adjust your camera for different lighting conditions, environments and shutter speeds gives me more control over my photography. But investing in lenses can make a world of difference, makes your shots look incredible- and keeps shooting fun!

I have my eye on a couple more… stay tuned for more toys!

Toronto Headshots For Dancers And Dance Teachers

Attention Toronto area dancers, dance teachers and dance studio owners:

Yes, you DO need great headshots. And NO, a cropped party pic or graduation photo of you or your dance staff will NOT work.

Having 30 years experience in the dance industry I can tell you with certainty: If you’re going to win in this business you need to take yourself seriously and invest in your success. Get professional headshots taken.

And I suggest you do it sooner rather than later, because you never know when the next major audition will happen. Will you be ready? Contact me and let’s get started.

My mom married the man of her dreams!

I wasn’t planning on being the wedding photographer, especially since I was in the wedding party. But of course couldn’t resist bringing my camera and snapping a few shots.

Love the silver, green and white colour scheme. I have a classy family! They had the best time and smiled all day.

If you’re looking for a Toronto photographer for your wedding, perhaps I can help capture your celebration? Wedding photography is not something I do regularly, but schedule permitting I’ll do my best to shoot more this year.
