Touching people with my portraits

business, corporate, author, photographer, ottawa“A visit to Mario Menard’s photography studio is like stepping inside an art gallery.

There are similar themes – portraits, weddings, families and business portraits –

but each photo is unique and, like a work of art, created to last.

Anyone can snap a photo, but it takes an artist – skilled, perceptive, intuitive, imaginative, and professional –

to preserve an individual’s expression, emotion, or thought experienced in a moment of time.

It doesn’t take long to realize that Mario is an extremely engaging professional who takes pride in his work

and who knows the importance of treating all persons with dignity, respect, and empathy. 

A photo should be something that just doesn’t last …

it should be a statement and memory of why it was important to be taken in the first place.

If Mario wanted to, he could open an art gallery for his portraits and I assure you that they would sell.

His humour and appreciation for all things and persons is evident in Mario’s photography. 

From the moment you meet Mario until you receive your photos, you will be pleased with his professionalism

and dedication to making your photo shoot a very rewarding experience.”

Regis has a few castings in Los Angeles in January. I feel very confident he will land a

contract or two. He is very talented and made my job quite easy.

Did you know for a little as $589 you can get a professional modeling photo-shoot,

ten retouched 8X10 prints and a Photo CD that contains those images.

We also have awesome Rep Card templates!

B&W Hollywood Glamour – This Could Be You!

Ottawa, magazine, glamour, B&W, portrait, photographyglamour, ottawa, photographer, portrait, B&WBlack & white, portrait, ottawa, glamour, B&W, ottawa, glamour, B&W, portrait, photography, Mario MenardIt all starts with an idea and grows from there. I wanted to offer a new glamorous way to portray women –

Something that wasn’t offered here in Ottawa. Being a huge fan of  black & white photography I wanted

this new service to be artistic, classic and be able to stun my clients when I presented them with their prints.

Then one evening while watching an old classic with Audrey Hepburn it hit me.

Old Hollywood Glamour Style Portraits!

Black & White portraits are not only artistic and beautiful but they generally flatter women (or men)

in a way that colour just can’t do. It’s all in the classic and vintage lighting techniques from Hollywood’s

silver screen era.

Treat yourself with this outstanding classic portrait shoot.

You will be rewarded with an unforgettable experience and something you will cherish forever!

We offer basic to full service packages that includes makeover, shoot, professional retouching and prints.

These portraits are sophisticated and glamorous classics – You’ll never want to take it off your wall!
