Natural Beauty!

Wednesday, March 28th, 2012

Crystal is another contestant that I chose from the Northern Northern Model Search event last Feb and we just wrapped up her shoot.  A little shy and nervous at first, but once the tunes started blaring over the speakers from her ipod she quickly relaxed and enjoyed the session (at least it appeared so).    I wanted more dark and moody lighting to compliment her stunning features and I think we came out with some stellar images.

Hanging With Other Photographers

Thursday, December 2nd, 2010

This week I got the pleasure to hang out with Kevin & Mariza Bissonnette of at their home studio to talk shop and discuss lighting techniques and marketing.  I think it’s good practice to get to know the other photographers in your area and not treat them like “competition” but more like “allies” in the trade.   It’s great when you have other photographers that you can bounce ideas off each other, help out if they need it, or request help if you need it. 

The image below was taken at Kevins studio where we were discussing different lighting techniques and how to get those big  O’l catchlights in those beautiful eyes.


A Couple And Their Car

Thursday, October 7th, 2010

Yesterday we had the chance (again) to photograph Chantal and her husband John.  We first photographed them 5 years ago after we photographed Chantal’s friend Samantha & Matt’s wedding in Blind River and then again this past July for Julie & Derek’s wedding in Geraldton Ontario.  We decided to meet them on the outskirts of Sudbury in Nairn Center and cruz some of the backroads from there to Worthington Ontario (my stompin grounds).  John trucked his Rat Rod with them so that we could capture a few images of the car.  Of course we photographed  the two of them with Bronx their Dog but that’s another story. 🙂 Here is a quick vid to show you a bit of the setup I used.

Ok, it’s 20 minutes later and I was going through the images and I thought I would post this one of “Bronx”



Another Family Is On The Wall

Wednesday, September 29th, 2010

Lorna Leroy just picked up her finished family portraits and is now ready to create her wall montage.  Planning ahead  and deciding what size images, how many, and where to showcase them is all part of the Portrait Process.  Lorna knew what she wanted and with a few suggestions from Jocelyne and myself she now has what she needs to decoratively display her family photos.

Like Father Like Son

Thursday, July 29th, 2010

Woohoo, we now have internet in our new house so it’s time for me to start posting again.    Today I photographed my Team Submission Factory Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Instructor (check out the facebook group) George and his son.  George wanted some image for TSF and also some casual portraits of him and his son Jay, but before we got into those we opted for this image below, sort of like when the MMA Fighters square off at the weigh-ins.  I will be workflowing more images from the session but I quickly wanted to share this one with you and get back into my daily routine of posting on the hodgeblog.

Also, if anyone wants to know any information about the Team Submission Factory Classes, just let me know and I will steer you in the right direction.


Here is one for the photographers.

It really doesn’t take much to light a portrait on location. Light is light right?  I use a mixture of strobes and flashes for most of my on location portraits.  I try to pack light, especially when you are going into a location that is somewhat “Out Of The Way”.  This session was for a Hair dressing Salon that wanted to showcase one of their more “funky” styles. I knew beforehand that the hairstyle was going to be big and colorful so I wanted to find a place that would compliment it. I also knew that I would have to light it in a way that would “highlight” the style and color. For this image, I used 2 lights behind my subject to add a pinlight around the hairstyle, seperating her from the background. I then added 2 more lights to fill in the shadows, bring out the background, and add some depth to my subject. Getting multiple lights off camera allows you to be more creative with your portraits and also allows you to utilize any location you chose.
