My name is John Cameron and I’m a photographer. I live on, and work mainly on, Salt Spring Island. That dictates that I specialize in a wide variety of photography for personal and commercial use. It’s easier to say what I don’t work on: weddings, large groups in general, and family groups.
It’s key. I enter each new project with the goal of understanding what you want your photos to achieve. At every point in the process after that, it’s my job to make sure that the images created meet or exceed those expectations. And I do that with experience, creativity, visualization and dedication.
I’ll be clear about what it costs to create your photographs. I’ll let you know what’s possible and what’s not. I’ll let you know when something will increase the cost of your work and provide alternatives. I’ll help you make creative decisions. I’ll help guide you through the process.
WHAT TO BRING
You bring a lot to the table, even if it’s your first time with this process. You’ll tell me about the images you want created. And what they will be used for. Knowing what your budget is helps focus the discussion and let’s us both know what’s possible and what’s not. Finding example pictures similar to what you need can be helpful. We’ll discuss how many images you need, required resolutions and other services that may be necessary. Everything you do here will help me build you an more accurate quote and provide images that will do what you want them to do.
Each year I donate time, money and services to the Gulf Islands School of Performing Arts, and the performing arts in general, at Gulf Islands Secondary School. Each year the GISPA program creates an original production: story, script, score and choreography and performs it live at ArtSpring. These driven and talented students and staff benefit significantly from the assistance. It’s a two way street, their enthusiasm and drive is infectious.
And now, when you purchase a print, 10% goes directly to GISPA, GISS Improv and the Performing Arts at GISS.
