Congratulations to Leigh Brandt on her newest cover!

I had the pleasure of calling Leigh Brandt recently and letting her know that she had been chosen for the next cover for Women’s Health & Fitness Magazine.  I had shot with Leigh Brandt and her husband, Dean Brandt at the studio mid-last year when she was in Toronto for the Toronto Pro Show to compete as an IFBB pro Bikini competitor.  For those that know Leigh, she is absolutely beautiful, inside and out. She has a very kind demeanour, and […]

Why You Need Professional Make Up for a Photoshoot

Often times, I get a request to shoot without  my make up artist team. Clients contact me and request pricing for commercial projects or personal portfolios and don’t want to spend the money for quality professional make up.  Of course you can save money by doing your own hair and make up, or hiring someone who is cheaper, but you get what you pay for.  Poor make up and hair may not only ruin the potential of the photoshoot, but […]
