Next time you're on Getty Images look me up and you might find something you recognize. I've got some stock photos up there.
I uploaded s set set of sushi images to iStock Photo. If you want to purchase my stock photos you can click on the image below. I shoot a series of hands with chopsticks holding up maki rolls as well as a wooden plate with an assortment of maki and sushi on it.
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.

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.

Here's a little shot just because I can.
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.
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.
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.
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.
It's an amazing day at the studio today because my new business cards and postcards arrived. Yaaaaa!!!! And they sure do look good. Used my favourite image from last summer's wedding season for the postcard. Totally loving that image and I'm hoping that people who see the postcard feel the same way. I'm going to give all of them away!!!!!!
If you know anybody who is getting married and in need of a wedding photographer save this picture and send it to them. Or if you're looking for an awesome wedding photographer you've come to the right place. I love shooting weddings and I'm constantly learning and improving my skills. I'm looking to take on 15 bookings for 2016!

This is pretty cool. New England Baptist Hospital has licensed one of my fitness images for a YouTube video campaign for fitness awareness. Kinda neat. I'm used to my images being licensed for print so this is a bit of a new experience. I had an image used in a TV commercial a few years ago and that was cool too. It never gets old seeing my work in use. As a photographer you're always happy to see your work making money.
Blah blah blah the webpage is almost complete wooohoooo. I'm excited to get this thing launched and show you all what the new Vasko Photography is all about.
I was hired by Shoeless Joe's to shoot some promotional content for their print and web in store event marking. When they asked me if I knew any beautiful women that would model for the project I said not a problem. I hired Canadian Playboy cover model Rachelle Wilde for the shoot. She was absolutely amazing to work with such a fun personality. Shoeless Joe's loved the photos and if the client is happy I'm happy.
Yogabooty hired me to shoot some promotional content for their ad campaign strategy. Had so much fun working with these two. It was awesome and the pictures came out amazing.
