One of the questions I’m most often asked while working at my photography store in Calgary is what tricks I use to consistently produce great looking photos? This question is asked so often that I thought I would put together a few of the things that I think are most important for your success. Read below to start taking professional quality photos:

Use a Tripod:

In order to properly take a great photo, it is vital you use a tripod. Tripods can result in sharp, clear pictures. Photographers who do not use a tripod will most likely experience fuzzy images.


I recently joined a photography club in Calgary and during our most recent meeting, I was asked what my most memorable photo shoot was? I thought about it and realized that “pet portraits” are always fun and can be frustrating. Offering pet photos is a great way to expand your business into new and untapped areas that many of us may not have thought of.

When giving gifts, we must always keep in mind that it is truly the thought that is important so no matter what cost connected to the gift, if it reaches the beneficiary as impersonal, the gift would then be not as unique as you want it to be. Regardless of the celebration, as long as the recipient is a animal lover, you might try considering giving him or her a portrait of his beloved pet as a gift. …

When we think of portrait photography, we think of taking close-up pictures that have a small depth of field. It is well known that portrait photography is in constant demand in this business, but it’s going to take more than merely a nice camera to acquire clients! Portrait photography is about capturing an individual’s personality and peeling back layers to reveal the subjects’ vulnerability.

Below are some recommendations on how to highlight your subjects’ best features.

1. Frame Your Shots. There are a number of methods for framing your shots, yet to get the most out of your situation I’d recommend quite a few angles, framing and crops. The shot is a rather natural pose. If you prefer dynamic shots, you must be constantly changing up your camera angles and viewpoint, trying to find the optimal shot. …

Maternity portraits are usually taken between 28 and 32 weeks, so finding the perfect photographer is very important. This advice will help you get it right the very first time.

Step 1: Begin early

Explore your choices at the conclusion of your first trimester, so you have a lot of time to investigate and compare different photographers, ask questions and address concerns. What does the package include? Do you feel relaxed with this photographer?

Step 2: Find a Specialist

Browse the photographer’s website to get a feel for her past experience and areas of expertise. That’s a good signal, if she has a number of examples from maternity sessions. “Experienced shooters will be knowledgeable about the most flattering angles for your pregnant body, and understand how to pay attention to your abdomen while minimizing others.” …

Step One: Research Your Options

Begin your research by searching countless local results and reading evaluations from former brides. Carefully evaluate possible photographers’ sites and look at pictures of moments that they shot. The look of the web site could also give hints concerning the shooters character and genre that they specialize in. Take a look at their Instagram and Facebook profiles, when possible. Make sure you read the feedback from customers. Are the comments good? If there was criticism, how did the photographer react?

Step Two: Schedule Interviews

This isn’t a choice that should be made on searching through profiles alone — you should meet with prospective photographers personally. When you decide on a short list of photographers — and their costs are in your ballpark; you need to determine if they are available on your special day. If your choice is booked already ask if they can suggest another shooter that has a similar style. Schedule in-person conferences with three to five possible photographers who are available on your wedding day to check out and evaluate whether you mesh. Be prepared to discuss what you imagine for the pictures and your location that define your wedding-style. …

Unlike the work of your other wedding vendors (music, flower arrangements, cake), photographs aren’t things you can hear, smell, taste or even see at first — you do not really understand what you are getting until after the fact. That means careful research and selectiveness regarding artistic style, professional abilities and personal demeanour are extra-important when selecting your wedding photographer in Calgary.

Task 1: Settle on a Style

Before you start researching photographers, you will need to first decide what sort of photography fashion you prefer, as that may help determine which photographer you will want shooting your wedding. …
