Tiny feet cradled by mom and dad. Baby feet that are small for only a very short time. One of the lovely little details from a studio newborn photography session.

One Image Four Ways – Studio Photography – Red Deer, Alberta

Each year I photograph many head shots. I thought in today’s post I would share a few different looks you can achieve from the same head shot image. The vast majority of the head shots I do are shot for use in websites, for business cards or publications. Many are the classic business portrait. Sometimes, however, it is nice to alter the classic image just a little to make it more eye catching and fresh, especially on-line where a picture that is a little different makes people stop and look.

The first image is a classic color studio image shot against a grey background, grey is a nice neutral to use as a background, especially if the shot will be used in different applications.

The second image is again in color but a bit desaturated. This gives a fresher more modern look.

The third image is even more desaturated plus has increased contrast. This creates a more stylized image as it is floating between color and black and white.

The final image is black and white. Always a favorite. Timeless and classic.

I always like it when a business portrait is altered just a little for on-line use. The image seems to have more personality and makes the image stand out.

Beach Portraits

blog beach portrait_3365 cWinter doesn’t mean having to wait until spring for outdoor portraits, a warm dry day in February can make for lovely shooting. The opportunity to shoot on occasion on the west coast makes the experience even nicer. The location for this portrait was Bridges Road on Pender Island (BC, Canada).

Red Deer Photographer – Fall Photography Special

red deer child photography

It’s that time of year again, summer is winding down, children are back to school, and everyone is thinking about having pictures done before winter arrives. September is one of the best months for outdoor photography, the backgrounds are colorful, the temperatures are mild, and the weather usually co-operates (unlike October where the weather seems to have a bit of an attitude).

It has been a little while since I have put on a “photography special” so I have decided September would be a great month for one. Here’s the special!

September Photography Special

– valid Monday to Friday after 5:30 pm
– available from September 9th to 30th

All sitting fees for photography sessions of 1 to 8 people are only $30.00.

(Regular sitting fees range from $75.00 to $105.00 so this is the time to save money and have a photography session done.)

The special is valid for on location, in studio or a combination. Please give us a call or text at 403-588-4032, or send us an email at hunterphotographics@ for more details.

Portrait in the Woods

outdoor portrait

Red Deer, Alberta has a wonderful park and path system running throughout the city. The wooded areas provide a lovely backdrop for casual portraits. This time of year presents backgrounds of lush greens making it a great time to capture the essence of summer in a photography session. A summertime portrait will be a welcome addition displayed in your home as winter approaches (remember how the snow arrived October 13th last year!).
