Rain Rain Go Away

Vasko Photography. Toronto Wedding Photographer. A little rain isn't enough to to keep the romance from shining through at this wedding. A long kiss at the steps of the little white chapel. A moment captured that will never be forgotten. You can see more of my wedding photos in my wedding photography album.

That Moment

Toronto Wedding Photographer. Father's always seem to have a way with words at a wedding. That moment he makes everyone else in the room laugh but at the same time makes a tear come to your eye. Those are the special moments your look for at a wedding. You can see more of my wedding photography in my wedding gallery.

Fitness Lifestyle Stock Photo Shoot

So I've been busy this summer planning my return to the stock photography game. I got started as a photographer shooting stock photos back in 2005 and truth be told I was pretty good at it. I learned so much by shooting stock and I'm so grateful for for all the experiences and friends I made along the way. I haven't shot stock in years and I'm feeling the itch to get back into it. To be perfectly honest the idea of shooting stock again feels like going home. It's a comfortable place for me. A lot has changed since the last time I was involved with iStockPhoto but I'm excited to take on the learning curve and find that success again. Don't worry I'm not going to stop shooting weddings. Stock photography is going to to be my side hustle.  

Here is the first set I uploaded in my return to stock photography. A fitness lifestyle set with the beautiful hispanic model Karli Vanessa Sal. We shot two quick looks at the beach. Nothing too fancy or overly planned. It was a good feeling to get the brain wrapped around shooting stock photos. I definitely felt rusty. It's a great start as far as I'm concerned and I'm going to keep moving forward from there.

Wedding Rings

Vasko Photography. Toronto Wedding Photographer. Here are two ring shots from past weddings. Simplicity, in my opinion, is the trick to good ring shots. There are more photos in my wedding photography gallery. Contact me any time to inquire about wedding photography availability. 

Cheese Board by Zeenea for Amazon.com

Vasko Photography, I recently had the pleasure of working with Zeenea. They hired me to shoot product shots of their cheese board set for their Amazon.com store. We had a good group on set and the shoot went buy with a lot of laughs. It's always a good day when you have a good group in the studio. Zeenea wanted clean white background product shots. Some of just the cheese board set and some action shots with the cheese board all set up. The client was happy with the shots and as usual I'm happy that the client was happy. 

If you need shots of your products drop me a message and let's talk about what I can do to help your business. 

Gurmeet Head Shots

I recently had the pleasure of working with Gurmeet who is a Toronto area real-estate agent. We shot these images for her business card and signage so i'm not saying it's a sure thing but I'm saying there is a chance you might see this face as you're driving around the city. 

Wedding Photos

Vasko Photography. The chaos before the big moment. Some people may say it's the hardest time of the day but as a photographer it offers up the most interesting opportunities to get creative and build the base of a story. For more information on wedding photography please contact me. We can setup a face to face meeting and go over all the details of your wedding. 

Addisons Residence Food Shoot

Vasko Photography. I recently had the pleasure of working with the Addisons Residence on a pretty tasty project. They hired me to shoot photos photos of the new food dishes that will be appearing on their new menu. Got some fantastic shots for them. I'm really happy with the way the images came out. Below is a selection of a few of the dishes we shot. And let me tell you from first hand experience, because I got to try all of this goodness after I shot it, the food at the Addisons Residence was really good. I'd eat all of it again any time. 

Enjoy the shots and don't get too hungry. If you're in the market for a food photography don't hesitate to message me. Contact me page.  

Fitness Solutions X

Alright so the next time you are perusing through the fitness section at Walmart you might see me there. I won't physically be there but you'll see my picture there on the packaging of Fitness Solutions X Woman's Fitness Gloves. How exciting is that! And it's a picture of one of my favourite models no less. Exciting times here at the studio today. 

Flip Flops

This passed summer I got myself into product photography mode. Now that it's winter and freezing outside, well maybe not freezing, it's been a warm winter, but it's certainly not pool season. Anyway, i'm getting off topic. Now that it's cold out it's nice to sit back and edit shots taken in the summer. It's fun to relive those memories by the pool. I decided to challenge myself by taking a regular mundane object like flip flops and shoot them in such away as to make them interesting while at the same time leaving enough negative space for commercial copy. It was a fun little exercise and as soon as I was done I jumped in the pool. I'm pretty happy with the shots. These are my three favourites from the series. These photos are available for licensing upon request. 

Gardening Knee Pads By Palmate

Product photography is something I've always enjoyed shooting. A few weeks ago I got contacted by the marketing manager of Palmate. They were interested in some product photos of their knee pads to replace their existing photo set. So we setup a shoot and shot a series of very clean isolated on white product shots. They were super happy with the images which is always great to hear and they also told me sales went up 50% after they posted the new photos. Just goes to show you how important it is to have proper photos shot of your products. You could spend countless hours creating the best product you can but if you have low quality photos of your product potential buyers will never bother to read the product description. A strong visual first impression is so important. 

Cottage Life

I recently shot a series of images of a group of beautiful wooden cottages on the French River. Such a beautiful location. I was really in awe. Northern Ontario really is stunning. We got really lucky on the day of the shoot. It had been raining all week up there and on the day we shot it cleared up and we had a beautiful blue sky afternoon. It was fantastic. The images came out amazing. Really happy with the results. Here are a few Images from the cottage shoot series. 

Talia Russo Portraits

Not to long ago I had the pleasure of working with local TV personality and actress Talia Russo. She's such an awesome personality to work with. She called me looking to book a portrait session. The plan was to shoot some glam portraits but still keep them very classy with the intention of submitting the images to various magazines for promotion. In her industry that kind of publicity goes a long way. I started the shoot playing it safe, using studio strobes, than switched things up to natural light to get these shots. I've been really into using natural light lately. Needless to say we were both super happy with the results form the shoot. Than when UMM Magazine picked up the images for a spotlight feature it was just bonus icing on the cake.

Product Shots

I found myself sitting around the other day itching to get behind the camera. There's only so much editing you can do before you HAVE to get up from the desk and take things in a different direction. So I was walking around the studio when the though of taking some product shots of my old cameras came to mind. So I figured why no,t let's setup the lights and have a little fun. These are a few shots from that camera product shoot.
