NL Women’s Magazine Is Here!

Over a year ago, my wife Nichelle Laus and I were approached by two of our friends with an idea. There was a real void when it came to Women’s Magazines, either they were folding because of the high costs of print, or in our opinion, looked like a men’s magazine converted over to a women’s version. Nothing really raw and direct for women to read and enjoy. The idea intrigued us. Being an ex-police officer, married and doing so […]

Feature On Real Housewives Of Toronto

Jana Webb, is the founder of Joga House, which teaches an exercise style which bridges the gap between traditional yoga and the biometrics of sports. She was selected to be featured on the cover of Optimyz Magazine, and was booked in for a photoshoot with us. When I sent her the details of the shoot, I was surprised to be sent a non-disclosure agreement by a production company, requesting to film Jana at the shoot for footage for an upcoming […]

Photographer Of The Year 2018 Award

  I lead an extremely busy life. Between having four young boys, a beautiful wife, a 6000 sq/ft gym, and a photography studio, my days are usually jam packed. I love being a busy person, it has a part of me since I was a young kid. I have worked since I was 11 years old, doing every job you could imagine. No matter what I did, I put my full effort in it, and succeeded because of it. Recently […]

Be Careful With How You Use Your Photos

HOW TO NAVIGATE COPYRIGHT LAWS IN CANADA Let’s start at the very beginning: You book a fitness photoshoot with a professional photographer. You diet, and train hard for 8 weeks. You see the pictures (which turned out phenomenally), and obsess over them. You use them on your social media pages, and blow up on Instagram, becoming an Instafame sensation overnight. A famous supplement company takes notice, sponsors you, and then starts using those kick ass photos on their social media […]

3 Simple Do’s and Don’ts of Photoshoots

Anyone can buy a photography session. Anyone can slap on some athletic clothes and call themselves a “Fitness Model.” And (almost) anyone can develop a following of 10k people or more on Instagram who admire them for their #Fitspo or #AbGoals.   But what separates the ‘Good’ from the ‘Great’? What makes one person’s photos POP, while another’s just looks like a glorified selfie? What gives someone that IT factor that’ll sky rocket them into InstaStardom? We’ll tell you… What […]

So You Want To Make It As A Fitness Model?

So You Want To Make It As a Fitness Model? By: Jaime Filer We’ve all seen the guy on Instagram who takes all his photos in front of the same gym mirror. Or, the chick that did a photoshoot in the park after her first bikini competition, and is reusing the same photos … One year later. Don’t be that guy/girl. Just as you get bored of seeing the same Insta-famous models taking the same Insta-famous pictures, so too do […]

2018 Is Off To A Great Start

I was walking through a Chapter’s Indigo store recently and took a stroll through the magazine section. I love magazines (obviously), and as I went through the newstands I found myself in disbelief. I had found 4 Magazines on newstands in the SAME store that I ad shot covers for! It was an exciting moment for me as I had never seen 4 of my covers on newstands simultaneously. Nichelle took a quick picture of my proud moment. This doesn’t […]

3 Things Fitness Models Can Do To Help Get Published

Almost every model that we have worked with has stated that they would love to get published into a magazine. I wish I could get everyone that we shoot published, but it’s not always possible. Getting published is a team effort between the model, the photographer and make up artists. The photographer can provide you with the pictures, and the make up artist with the proper make up looks for the magazines that you are submitting for, but there are […]

Want a competitive edge for magazine submissions?

We are always trying to make things better and easier for our clients. One of the things that most clients want as a goal is to be published. Working with various magazines, I submit photos of my clients to the magazines that I work with. Sometimes a magazine will like a model’s look and ask for them to come back and shoot a workout for a feature. But what if we were to be one step ahead on this?  What […]
