Ottawa is home to a wide variety of architectural styles, from the grandiose Gothic revival of the Parliament Buildings to the sleek modernism of Ottawa City Hall. As the capital city of Canada, Ottawa has long been a showcase for the country’s architectural talent.
Ottawa is also home to a number of important historical buildings, such as Rideau Hall, the official residence of Canada’s Governor General, and the National Gallery of Canada seen to your right. Ottawa’s architecture is a reflection of the city’s diversity, with buildings from a wide range of periods and styles.

If you are looking for an exterior photographer in Ottawa you are in the right place.
Retail Store Interiors
When we photograph retail interiors, attention to detail is paramount. There are many lighting considerations to be made when it comes to photographing store interiors. As accomplished interior design photographers we will meet every challenge head-on and ensure that the space is properly lit to showcase your store and products.
Applying an understanding of composition, we will create photographs that provide a glimpse inside the retail space without appearing too cluttered or busy. Photographs that make your potential clients want to visit instead of never visiting in the first place.
Industrial Buildings & Warehouses
Photographing industrial buildings, warehouses, and manufacturing facilities presents many unique challenges. These structures are often large and boxy, with many large windows.
We have the skills and experience to meet these challenges. We pride ourselves on creating aesthetically pleasing photographs that capture the imagination of the viewer and encourage them see beyond the bricks and mortar.
This photograph of the Earth Fresh produce company’s facility demonstrates the use of leading lines, and the natural environment to add visual interest. The angle of the photograph helps to avoid flattening the building and bring out its texture. The natural beauty of the surroundings complements the architecture, with objects in the foreground, such as plants and trees, resulting in drawing the eye in.
Large Buildings & Skyscrapers
Large buildings have an imposing quality. They inspire awe in their onlookers. This is something we want to convey in the images we create. We have the skill and architectural photography experience required to capture large structures in their entirety, and ensure that there is no distortion of architectural features or converging vertical lines. We don’t skimp on the details.
Stand Alone Stores & Restaurants
When photographing a store or restaurant, it is important to study the structure, in order to create images that emphasize the building’s unique design characteristics. We put thought and care into the composition of our restaurant photographs.
We know that with the right lighting and angles, your business will shine. For instance, McDonald’s, with its red exteriors and bright yellow arches, stands out against the dark sky in this photograph. From this angle, the building’s architectural features lead the eye in and create visual interest.
Hotels & Hospitality
When photographing hotels, corporate event centers, and banquet halls, we go beyond the traditional vantage points, playing with angles, light, and composition to create enticing, visually appealing images.
For example, in this photo of the Hilton Garden Inn, we used the surroundings and natural lighting to set the tone and add visual interest to the photo. The lights from the cars, conveying speed and movement, are contrasted with the building, set on a pink sky backdrop, which presents the space as calm, warm and inviting.
Office Interiors & Corporate Headquarters
Office interiors can be challenging for the average person to photograph. We use lighting and top of the line equipment to make your space look its absolute best.
Each office space we photograph is unique and provides its own set of unique challenges. We will take the time to make sure the space looks its absolute best.
We can photograph during the day with staff or after hours when the office is empty. This way we can ensure there is little to no interruption to your daily business operations.
Retail Store Exteriors
When it comes to photographing store fronts, we want to help you make a strong first impression by creating images that pique customers’ interest and inspire them to visit in person. Retail store photography is a very important tool to market a business.
What makes your space unique? What do you want to showcase to customers? Allow us to use our skill, experience, and creative eye to produce unique, attractive images for your business.
Hotel Interiors & Restaurants
When photographing hotel and restaurant interiors, we want to create images that enhance the visual interest of these spaces and highlight their unique architectural features. It is important to present hotel and restaurant interiors as warm and welcoming, and create a sense of comfort.
We are knowledgeable and skilled in the use of lighting techniques to account for the presence of both natural and artificial lighting in one space.
How do you want customers to see your hotel or restaurant? We will ensure that your vision is reflected in the photographs.
In the example here, the approach to composition opens up the space and creates a sense of depth. Leading lines draw the eye in and upward, emphasizing the height of the ceiling, and creating a sense of splendor.
