One of the hardest parts of my job is not in the actual photography, it's in what happens after the session is done. For those that don't know, once the session is concluded, we've probably taken somewhere in the region of 60-100 images. On my computer, with my software, I can easily review [...]

Some time ago I was working with a client and asked her how she had found out about me. It's a simple question but it helps me determine where my marketing dollars, time and effort are making a difference. I have run campaigns on Google, LinkedIn and others [...]
BBImagery has a strong relationship with Century 21 Miller in Oakville, a Century 21 office that has over 80+ years of management experience on-board and is recognized as one of the top 12 offices globally. Each realtor that they send to us is different so we listen and adapt our sessions [...]
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 [...]
Many years ago I suffered a neck injury during a workout routine. Like most young adults, I thought little of it. Like a scar that would heal or a blemish that would fade, this muscle tear would miraculously patch itself up and all would be well in the world. Well of course that didn’t happen. [...]

I mentioned in a previous post how I like to run creative sessions as a counterpoint to my headshot photography business. Sometimes it's just a free-for-all session, with little planning. But sometimes there's a plan and sometimes where there's a plan, you need a plan B. Such was the case when I put out a [...]

We operated two separate headshot sessions to accommodate their busy schedule, producing distinct but complimentary images. We worked with our clients to ensure that the [...]
I thought I'd make a short post with an image from last night. I did a pre-shoot session with Kateryna (Toronto) to test some ideas we had for an upcoming vintage session. It was great fun and we produced some good looks/plenty of notes to help us when we get everything together for the actual [...]
