Father and Son in Black and White

Dad, baby, black and white, and tattoos. As I shot this portrait I could hardly wait to see the final image on my computer screen. The contrast between the baby’s new skin and the decorated skin of his father, plus the contrast in the lighting made for an artful portrait. It is always interesting when […]

Studio Portrait in Cool Tones – Studio Photography – Red Deer, Alberta

studio portraitI’ve noticed a trend in some high end magazines where portraits have their tones shifted into cooler, more desaturated tones.

A great style to work with for solo portraits or even head shots for someone in a creative field.

Red Deer Photographer – Fall Photography Special

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@ shaw.ca for more details.

Red Deer Photographer – Urban Portrait

This is an image from just a few hours ago. Urban shoots are always a lot of fun. Gritty back alleys. Relaxed posing. No rules. Urban shooting is made for black and white; it just works.

I’ll share a few more images from this shoot in the coming days. It was a pretty cool shoot of this teenage boy.

Outdoor Portrait – Family of Four

In today’s post I am sharing a portrait order that I have just completed. This was an afternoon portrait in a local park. Afternoon is often a nice time to shoot younger families, as a shoot time after nap-time can provide for happy, rested children with smiles.

The parents wanted a relaxed session with images that were informal. They wanted to capture their kids “being kids”.
