Meet Sandra, Interim Executive Director and CEO of REIC

Brhum Bhatia Business

I ask my clients to bring various things to their session; a change of clothing for example just in case what they thought would work best, turns out for the worst. One thing that I don’t mention (and perhaps I should) is energy. You know I can show you how to turn and face the right way to compliment the …

Model Eugenya : Patience

Brhum Bhatia Models and Actors

A few years ago, I was fortunate enough to collaborate with a model by the name Eugenya and she remains one of my all-time favourite models for a number of reasons, primarily though Eugenya has “posing patience”. Perhaps I should elaborate what I mean when I say “posing patience”. Eugenya is also a life-drawing, painting model and so can hold …

Steffen deGraaf : Composing financial success.

Brhum Bhatia Business

Although we’re primarily a headshot photography company, we do offer other ‘formats’. One common request is to be shot against a white background, not because of the look, but because the background will be removed in a process called compositing. Essentially compositing involves removing the subject from one background and placing them on another background (such as perhaps, a doctor’s …

Brhum Bhatia Business

Many years ago I suffered a neck injury during a workout routine. Like most young adults, I thought little of it.

For years I struggled with …

Fit in and Stand Out.

Brhum Bhatia Business

It’s a paradox I see almost every day. My clients want to set themselves apart, yet they want to show that they belong. They dress in clothes that they know will be accepted, yet they want people to notice them above all others. Can it be done? Can you be ‘inclusively unique’ ? Can you be part of the crowd …
