Big Brothers Big Sisters

Over the last 10 years my work has evolved into doing mostly event, commercial and headshot and portrait photography.However covid had wiped out my event photography work over the last few years and I hope that's behind us and we can get back to normal. This event is a new start for me.

Big Brothers Big Sisters contacted me to cover some of the #MegaBike fund raising in St John's Newfoundland and I was delighted. One reason I like doing this kind of work is because I meet really great people. Successful, hardworking people who really enjoy life and as a result really add to the quality of life in our communities.

Below are some photos from September 14, 2022.

Family Photos in the Park

I've been a photographer for a long time and I used to consider technique, exposure and composition most important, and it is important, but in the last few years I've come to appreciate something that runs a lot deeper. Life is a profound and shared experience and who we are grows out of those closest to us. There is really no "me", only a "we" or "us". The people closest to us are our identity, we wouldn't be the same without them. What makes it all the more special is that life is forever changing. Things don't stay the same forever, that is what makes life so precious. 

Family photos are a reflection of this love. They are your window to the treasure of life. I've been doing more family photo sessions this year because of #ComeHome2022 and it's great to work with people giving them something which will become so important in their lives.

If your looking to have your family photos taken give me a call at 709 769-7990 or email: Brian@BrianCareyPhotography.com Family photos might be the most precious things you have!

Come Home 2022

I really enjoy taking family photos and this past week I got to photograph the Cook family once again when they returned home to Newfoundland from the United States. It's great that a lot of people are coming home for #ComeHome2022 and I'm looking forward to doing more of this.

We went to Middle Cove Beach for an hour and did some of what you might consider traditional family photos and we also got a few walking along the beach and even throwing some rocks into the ocean. I was going to say stones but they're rocks in Newfoundland!

If your looking to have some family photos taken I would suggest going online and doing a search. You can find some great ideas, especially on Pinterest. And I got some ideas too.  I like to look at photographing people as a collaborative effort and by working together the real character of the family can come out. A few minutes into the session people usually settle in a bit and begin to enjoy themselves. It's really great to be a part of this!

If you would like to have your photos taken at some fabulous Newfoundland location give me a call at 709 769-7990 or email: Brian@BrianCareyPhotography.com

Commercial Properties

I've photographed a lot of Commercial Properties over the years and the biggest challenge is getting the light right in order to deliver the highest quality content to my client. The challenge is to get the sunlight coming from the right direction as well as the quality of light. This can be difficult depending on the time of year and the weather. You want a clean even light across the area and a nice sky to fill out the frame. One thing you don't want are hard shadows cutting across the property. To get the best look might mean waiting a few days or, if it's winter, weeks or maybe months. It could take that long to get great light on a building or property.

So one thing I decided to do is to take the initiative and create stock photo galleries of businesses in and around my hometown of St John's which are available for license on my website. Click here to view those galleries. I'm always updating and adding new galleries. 

 

If your looking to have your property photographed a couple of things I suggest are; to do it shortly after you have some work done on the property or just after construction is completed. Also I recommend considering having the property cleaned. A pressure washer can do wonders to the facade or the stairs or entrance way. And if your looking for an experience photographer give me a call at 709 769-7990 or email: Brian@BrianCareyPhotography.com I would love to help you make your business look its best.

I should add that I also offer photos of St John's which are available for license for brochures, ads, or promotional material. Thank you for stopping by!

Newfoundlands True Colours

I can't think of a better way to show of Newfoundland's warmth, charm and colour than a photo session of a beautiful woman around some of the most colourful neighbourhoods in St John's. Last week myself and Kuks spent a Saturday afternoon downtown doing just that.

 Newfoundlands True Colours

I grew up in this part of town and rode my bike there when I was a boy. These days I also spend a lot of time there. I do my personal street photography in some of these neighbourhoods. I also photograph the area and just last year completed a set of 6 ultra high resolution murals for a major client. These murals will be displayed in their restaurants across Canada over the next few years.

 Newfoundlands True Colours

During our session we  visited many of the best areas to take photo in St John's. That is if you want the vibrant colours. As you may know some of these areas are often called Jelly Bean Row. There are other fabulous areas like Signal Hill but the wind is often a factor when shooting headshots or portraits there.

Newfoundlands True Colours

I got a nice selection here and I didn't cover all the most colourful locations. If your in the area and are looking for some similar photos give me a call. You will find a link to my email here!

Checkout my Portraits and Headshots gallery here. More of my portraiture can be found on my website(s) Brian Carey Photography and Chasing the Light Fantastic.

 Hope you enjoyed the photos. Thanks for stopping by!
