There is no doubt that video content is key in online marketing and social media for your business.

There is so much content out there, that your video can tend to get “lost in the crowd”, all it takes to stand out is to raise the quality of your content!

Even if it’s a short simple message promoting an upcoming event, quality content can make a difference.

Below is a short video Dr Tatyana from Urban Panda Health and Wellness did for her Networking groups upcoming Visitor Day

It doesn’t take much to up your game and stand out from the crowd with your online marketing?

Ian’s company was launching a new social media campaign, he decided an updated headshot was in order. He had never been really happy with his previous headshots, we are proud to say he was happy with the ones from his sessions with us.

A headshot that shows the real you can help people connect with you, making the decision to contact you easier.

Remember, it doesn’t matter what you look like, it’s who you look like.

Do you look like someone that people can trust  and want to do business with, that’s what’s important

Cynthia came to our Ottawa Headshot studio, looking to update her headshot for her website.


People like dealing with a person, having a current headshot that helps people associate a “face” to your business helps to build a relationship between your client and you  – sometimes before they have met you.

Having a head start on building a great relationship with your client  can only be a good thing, right?

A Tobaggan/Sledding hill can be a great place to get some cool family portraits  and have some fun at the same time.

And the best part is the kids don’t have to look at the camera and smile ( either do the adults actually!)
