Hey I'm Justin, born and raised in Ottawa. I'm a self taught photographer. I learn by doing, reading, watching, and of course, surrounding myself with talented people...very talented people. Specializing in glamour photography, I'm hoping to gain more experience with each shoot and build a stronger portfolio.
I like to work with models to bring out their best features. Facial expressions and poses are very important to me and I often find that many photographers will overlook this. To me it's not enough to have perfect lighting and composition. If there's no camera connection and the model has the all too common "deer-in-the-headlights" look on her face, combined with a mediocre pose, then I'm not doing enough to ensure a great shot.
I'm also a firm believer in that retouching can make or break a photo. I try to limit my editing to skin cleanup, blemish removal and colour correction. My personal preference is to keep a natural look to my photos...if I can't get it right in camera then I've failed as a photographer ;)
On that note, photography is also my passion! I put in as much effort as you would hope to expect and I love to have fun with each of my shoots.
If you're interested in working with me, I'm definitely interested in working with you! Just send me a message to set up a shoot :)
