The “awesome retouching” issue

A while ago, I noticed a post on Facebook, where a Montreal based photographer declared his unlimited love to the retouching procedures. For the rest of us humble photographers this tedious procedure is not called retouching but no less than “Photoshop Hell”. That being the situation, they are 1001 companied from the East Indies who […]

Little Prince The Movie – Photography

An interesting project for which I had the pleasure to work as photographer:

Montreal Smoked Meat

Yet another delicious sandwich made in Montreal and shot in our studio. Mouthwatering! As usual the range of the Phase One IQ is fantastic. Phase One IQ140 + 645DF Schneider 80mm LS 3 Profoto D1 + diffusers  

“My cousin is also a commercial photographer”

Last project I have shot brought something familiar to my attention. The client was visibly (and understandably) upset that he had to redo a photo shoot for the items produced by his company after having a bad final result from yet another “commercial photographer” based in Montreal. Since I encounter this situation far too often I decided to […]

Our Montreal Photography Studio has a new location!

A couple of months ago we started the process of moving our Montreal photo studio in a new location. We found a very nice commercial space right on the Lachine Canal. A freshly renovating old building with a very nice architecture and New York 14.5′ tall spaces. The landlord seemed very friendly and helpful and we […]

“Toying” around with a Phase One IQ

Recently I had the pleasure to work for a particular photography project. A Montreal company which produces toy-robots contacted me in order to create imagery that will refresh their commercial interface. Upon the first contact we realized that, in fact, we are geographically neighbors since their office is just in the next building from ours (what are the […]

Phase One Toronto Headshots

Recently we had a business headshot session in Toronto that proved to be surprisingly pleasant. We used the nice view from their office as background and the business workers were good looking too! Above is a sample which has almost no retouching. Gear used: 3x Profoto D1  with Octa 5′ softbox and 2 x 3/1 strip box Phase One IQ140 Schneider […]

Phase One XF Camera System – First impressions

Not long ago Phase One introduced their new XF camera system and yesterday I had the pleasure to participate at one of the first launching events in North America which happened in Montreal, Canada. XF is a totally new, redesigned body and, being a technical cameras junkie, I was attracted to the new design from the […]

Montreal’s Finest Smoked Meat

For a professional food photographer the plates in front of the camera are rather “models” subject to light and composition. We are less compelled to “consume” our subject except, maybe, when this meal is produced by Montreal’s best smoke meat distributor. They just invented a new extravagant sandwich, incidentally called Mellogazmic, and they asked our studio to shoot it […]

Schneider 80mm 2.8 LS vs Sigma 50 1.4 art

Recently I purchased a Sigma 50mm 1.4 art for my back-up Nikon system (I use D800 as back-up for my Phase One IQ140). This lens is pretty impressive and I love it. I won’t start a thread about this lens – they are already a lot of reviews on the web. But I took the time […]
