On Location

  • By admin

Having great photos of your business can really improve the quality of your corporate brochure or website.

Wether you’re making stairs, like Dekker Stairs in the photo above, or processing claims, or shipping bananas, environmental on-location photos can do a lot to establish who you are and what you do.

On location is sometimes the best place for corporate photos. If you make stairs, like Steve Dekker, where better to take your corporate photo than beside the construction of a custom set of stairs?

Mississaugua Golf & Country Club

  • By admin

Geddie Photo has done considerable photography in and around the magnificent Mississaugua Golf & Country Club to provide a library of photos for their publications, social media and a new website.

We have considerable experience photographing golf courses, and it’s a photo assignment that requires careful timing along with an understanding of golf course design.

Spring on the Golf Course

  • By admin

 

Once the Master’s Golf Tournament arrives in April, golfers get itchy to start another season of playing. Waiting for the course to open and playing on frigid days are all part of the Canadian golfer’s spring tradition. As the grass grows and the buds appear on the trees, the courses come out of their dormancy and begin to regain their splendour.  The photo above is #1 at St. Catharines Golf & Country Club. It was taken as the sun peaked over the horizon and began to illuminate the over-cast clouds. This is a lovely photo of a golf course in April, but it will never be printed because the bunker in the foreground is full of foot-prints, taking away from the pristine nature of the course. Golf course photography is what we do – can we do it for you? You can see a full range of our photography at our Geddie Photography website.

Moments in Time

  • By admin

burgoynearchThere’s a major municipal construction project underway in my neighbourhood. Lots of traffic delays, and strange noises during the night. A hundred-year-old bridge is being replaced and the new pieces are going up while the old pieces are coming down. It’s a game of dominos to keep the traffic moving while the construction continues.

We’re into the final stages that involve the erection of a massive arch to suspend the bridge over a major highway and a wide creek. Temporary structures are holding the bridge while the arch is built, piece by piece during the night with the roadways temporarily closed.

I wanted a photo of the bridge to convey the grandeur of the project. Finding the correct vantage point was the challenge and I thought about it over several weeks. As a morning runner, I explore the streets of our town as I plod around on my workouts. Finally, I realized where a path I knew might put me and my camera into the correct position.

So here’s the shot. I think the vantage point is perfect, and so was my timing. I was setting up at sunset, just before the road closures as the crane was moving into position to swing another piece of the arch into position.

One of my photographer friends says, “Photography is all about chasing the light.” He’s correct, but the chase often results in the discovery of a unique perspective.

The Best Camera

  • By admin

What’s the best camera? The one you have with you!

As a photographer, I’m always agonizing about how much camera equipment to carry with me. You want it all, but that’s usually impractical, so there has to be a selection determined by the shoot, the time and the place.

Fortunately the huge improvement in the iPhone over the past five years means that we always have a camera with us. And if you have seen the iPhone commercials, you know that the iPhone can produce some very good photos, and videos, and panoramas. It’s absolutely amazing.

I amazed myself last weekend while riding on the Toronto ferry. There was the skyline of Toronto in all its glory from a vantage point that was perfect. Didn’t have a Nikon with a wide lens, so pulled out the iPhone and voila, an immediate capture of a great image.

It is possible to capture great photos without a bag full of equipment. The place, the lighting and the view are still more important than the equipment you might use to capture the moment.

New Photo Challenges

  • By admin

_DSC3010

When’s the best time to take a photo of a transport truck? On a cloudy, rainy day, with lots of nice reflections and a great opportunity to see the lights and glimmer from the rig itself.

We’ve been in trucks, around trucks and shooting trucks as they pass by putting together a new website for a large trucking company that ships time-sensitive, temperature-controlled food products. If it’s fresh in your supermarket, it was probably shipped on one of these trucks.

Client projects present new challenges, and working with clients on location is an adventure in inventiveness.

Making of a Brand – Celebrity Endorsement

  • By admin

The sales pitch took place in a nearly empty ballroom at Fort Worth’s Colonial Country Club one sunny afternoon in July 2013. Jordan Spieth, a local PGA Tour rookie, had just finished participating in an RBC Wealth Management “Shot for College” clinic as a last-minute replacement for Hunter Mahan, another PGA golfer from Dallas.

Attending the clinic was a select group of RBC clients who’d come hoping to see Mahan, a multiple World Golf Championship winner and Ryder Cup veteran. As he prepared to leave, Spieth’s eager sports-business agent, Jay Danzi, approached an RBC representative and rattled off his 30-second sales pitch. “Here’s my card,” Danzi concluded. “Let me know if Jordan can do anything for you or your clients. He would be happy to help.”
