Profile Adjustment? Dr. Brad Deakin visits BBImagery

Brhum Bhatia Business

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. For years I struggled with …

David Venturi and new way to get an education.

Brhum Bhatia Business

Everyone’s got a story. Although I’m a photographer, I’ve done jobs in my lifetime that I’ve greatly regretted (cleaning old car batteries with methylated spirits springs to mind) and loved (cleaning giant oil cookers with giant paddles brings back fond memories). I gave up a career in IT to pursue photography because I felt it was the right way forward …

Ivica : Creativity and Passion

Brhum Bhatia Business

When Re/Max Burlington contacted me and said they wanted to send someone over, I was expecting a realtor. Ivica is a realtor, but also so much more. From the moment he arrived he had a very clear vision of what he wanted; the mood; the style; the look. He came prepared with one outfit because that’s the one he wanted …

They look great” -Jessica This turned out to …

Art and the Artist

Brhum Bhatia Models and Actors

One of the great pleasures about having a purely creative session is that it affords me (the photographer) the ability to experiment. Without experimentation there is no discovery and without discovery there is no growth. When you get to meet and photograph another creative soul, the sessions can be intoxicating. One such soul is the wonderful Andrea Nechita. Andrea Nechita …

Light and Dark : Mixing it up to get what you need.

Brhum Bhatia Business, Models and Actors

This is the story of how two people helped each other out, both got what they needed and both walked away happy. If you’re looking for a twist in the story, a climactic ending of biblical proportions, well, there ain’t one, no seriously, things started off smoothly and only got smoother. By the end, things are so darn smooth you’ll …

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 …

What is TFP?

Brhum Bhatia Models and Actors

TFP seems to be shrouded in mystery, yet it’s actually quite straightforward. But ask a dozen photographers or models about TFP and you’re likely to get a dozen different answers. It’s a loose term and it means different things to different people. So before you sign up for a TFP session, how can you know what you’re expected to bring …

14 psychologists walk into a building…

Brhum Bhatia Business

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before; 14 psychologists walk into a building… It sounds like the beginning of a joke but when the Oakville Centre for Cognitive Therapy (OCCT) contacted BBImagery for headshots, that’s exactly what happened. Dr. Stephen Swallow was looking for a photographer to produce headshots suitable for the OCCT’s new web site. He needed images of …
