Veronika & D - Couples Portraits

Veronika & D were soo much fun to shoot! They are so outgoing, natural in front on the camera, and just overall great people. We really hit it off and shooting was such a breeze. 

We met at Cherry Beach, along with my good friend and talented photographer Mario Etienne. 

Here are some photos from the session:

Thankfully it was a nice day, and wasn't bitterly cold :) Ushasi is such a professional, and great to work with. I hope you enjoy these images and let me know what you think in the comments below!

Portraits with Phelisha

Phelisha is an up and coming blogger, social media influencer and fun person to be around! We met up in Chinatown for a shoot on a surprisingly warm December day. I mean it was still cold ( I was in a coat, hoodie, winter hat, etc) but we made it work.

City Night and City Lights

Something that always captures my eye and attention is the city lights of Toronto. I've always been drawn to bigger cities despite being raised in small town. Yes, I'm from Newfoundland and I'm proud of it.

I wanted to incorporate some lights and neon signs for these portraits sessions! These were all taken in the Chinatown area of Toronto. 

Since I was a 1 man crew, I didn't want to have obtrusive light stands or anything when people were walking around on the streets. I used an 85mm 1.8 lens (to let in a lot of light) and an LED light that I held up with 1 hand. The LED also had a tungsten diffuser on it, which balanced with the colour temp of the city lights, then switched my white balance to tungsten, to come out with an appropriate skin tone.

Thanks for reading,

Cheers!

Corporate Portraits with Jennifer

The world is full of opportunities, and putting out the best images of yourself when applying for jobs or creating a solid LinkedIn profile is crucial. You want recruiters to look at your profile and know that you put in the effort to present yourself in a professional manner, while creating that ever so important first impression. 

Let's be real, does your selfie that you took under horrible tungsten lighting conditions present a good image? Does that dark, underexposed snapshot you took on vacation grab the attention of a recruiter? 

I met up with Jennifer for some corporate styles portraits and headshots in the financial district.

 

If you'd like to get some great images for your LinkedIn profile or headshots to apply for acting or modelling jobs, get in touch! Drop me a line info@mattstratton.ca or you can find me on Instagram and Facebook!
