Importance of a good location.

I would like to stress the importance of choosing a good (proper) location for your photo shoot. I am a natural light photographer. Other than fill light (flash on a sunny day), I use the sun to light my work. I shoot exclusively outdoors. Please make sure when choosing your location, that the spot is well lit, natural (no sub division houses, cars, etc... behind you) and safe. If in doubt, please come up to me in Newmarket (20 minutes from TO). I have spots that are not only appropriate, but preferred.

Location Photo Shoots / Permits:

I enjoy visiting and shooting in new locations. A park I've never seen, a beautiful treed backyard, the waterfront. I do ask that clients be aware that most Toronto Parks and public locations require a permit. It is the clients responsibility to obtain the permit.

When choosing a location for your shoot, please keep this in mind. If finding a location is a difficulty, please feel free to come up to me in Newmarket. I have natural forests, a local park with Willow trees (my fav.), sun speckled trails, wide open fields, etc... all within a 5 - 10 minute drive. Having a good location is important to a great photo.

Looking forward to all my Spring / Summer shoots!

Simply pretty:

In every good portrait is a bit of magic. I call this light, "God's Light"... when the sun glare fogs a lens. Love it. to view.

Willamina Sunshine.

Environment and natural light play a large part of a good portrait in my eye. Of which, I only have control over one. I love the sun.
