Went on the hottest day of the year, I am absolutely DRENCHED so you can imagine what is going on with my confidence and my ability to look good. Cameron just effortlessly put us both at ease, his ability to connect with you and have a meaningful conversation just ensured that we were not focusing on any negative energy lurking. His passion was just awe aspiring and everyone who wants to witness how passion unveils in its rawest element would be lucky to see this man in action. He does it from his heart and for us, this was the first time we had experienced something quite like this without having to have the same jaded interactions about your robotic poses and angles. THANK YOU SO MUCH and I cannot wait to be back for an outdoors shoot. More...

My experience from the very beginning was nothing but amazing. Henna is incredibly friendly, helpful and just a pleasure to meet. Any nervousness I had going into the shoot disappeared the moment she welcomed me in. I would strongly recommend that you take advantage of the talented hair and make up artist Kathy. She was such a pleasure to work with and she possess such amazing talent for making you look and feel beautiful. As for Cameron, I am speechless at the amazing, breathtaking photos that he captured. He was easy to work with and made me feel comfortable throughout the shoot. His talent for capturing the beauty in everyone is something to be admired. I don't have a single complaint about anything, they always went above and beyond every step of the way. So bottom line; if you want to feel comfortable, look more beautiful than you thought possible and have breathtakingly stunning photographs than Froz'n Motion is exactly what you need. More...

My wife, Joyce, went for a photo shoot to surprise me with a Valentine's Day gift! If I can sum it up -- WOW! Cameron is extremely talented with his pictures and his artistic vision! Although the photo shoot I believe said only 90 minutes and something like 300 pictures, he spent longer than that with my wife and we ended up with significantly more pictures than 300 on the DVD - and to top it off, when I went to pick her up, he even asked me to pose with her for a few couple-shots! Summed up, the book they had created for us, along with the amount of pictures I have now made for an amazing Valentine's Day gift! They definitely delivered on this and I was pleased with the quality and artistry of the pictures. Thanks again and we'll definitely have you on a short-list; recommended. More...

I really enjoyed my experience with Henna and Cameron! They are very professional at what they do. I had to reschedule once and I had many questions leading up to the shoot, and Henna answered all of them very quickly. The shoot was great. At first, I felt nervous as a boudoir photo shoot isn't something I do every day... Cameron's helpful tips and encouragement helped me and I felt very comfortable after just a few frames. I just got my pictures back last week and went through them. They turned out amazing and I highly recommend them.  Thank you, Henna and Cameron. More...

We will forever be grateful to Cameron and Henna for making our wedding in Toronto so memorable and extraordinary. Especially, we want to thank Cameron for his professionalism and creativity, for not only helping us to overcome our camera shyness, but for also pulling us into an unforgettable adventure - an outdoor photo shoot during one of the coldest days of the last decade.

I went for my photo shoot with Cameron yesterday. From the moment I arrived Henna and Cameron both made me feel at ease. Cameron, a true professional, made my experience what it was. I was comfortable, relaxed and felt more like a part of the process as opposed to simply, the subject or object to be photographed. I left feeling more confident and sexy than when I walked in. Thank you Cameron, for an amazing experience. Whether it be your first, or ninety-first time you will not be disappointed. I highly recommend Cameron and Froz'n Motion Photography to anyone looking for an amazing, professional experience. Thanks again Cameron. More...

Cameron is very friendly and a great photographer. Despite us getting a very discounted price through DealFind, he was nothing but professional. We did an on location photo-shoot that was outside of his studio and at my parents home and everything went smooth despite him not having all the gear he would have at the studio. Cameron and his assistant Henna have fantastic and frequent communication, and they showed up exactly at the scheduled time.Additionally, he helped put out a fire that randomly started in the kitchen during the shoot. As good as it gets! More...

Q&As

The secret to taking any great photograph is simple: it’s timing, exposure and composition. You have to be in the right place at the right time and your exposure has to be bang-on or you’ll mess up whatever it was you were trying to capture. And naturally, the final product better look awesome in the frame.

The secret to taking a drop-dead-gorgeous, head-snapping, stop-you-in-your-tracks masterpiece however, is light-years different. That requires a suitcase full of skill and experience, a vast array of tricks and techniques and the patience to wait for the exact moment to fire your shutter. Yes, you have to be in the right place at the right time, for sure, but you also have to know exactly what it is you are trying to accomplish and what it is you want to pull out of your client. Clicking a photograph of what your client looks like is a completely different experience from creating a portrait of who they are as a person.

Great photography is like great writing. It looks so easy to do that anyone who can afford a nice camera imagines they can do it. But really good photography is difficult to achieve. It always requires way more hard work and persistence than you think it should. And to create consistently good work over and over again, the kind of work that a client hires you for and flips out over when they see the end results, that kind of work requires experience, discipline and a passion for the craft of photography that takes years to develop.

So, like with everything out there today, the secret to taking a great photograph always boils down to experience and hard work. Great photography doesn’t just happen, it must be carefully moulded into existence.

This question always depends on what project we are embarking on together. Is it a Wedding? Headshots? A Boudoir Shoot? Although each type of shoot requires a completely different approach, and each answer will be slightly different, the question ultimately comes down to the same thing:

“So, what are you looking for today?”

Once I know that, once I have a clear idea of what my client is looking to get out of their shoot, it makes my job so much easier to take them to where they want to go. Sometimes they know exactly what they want and sometimes they don’t. Either way, I am sufficiently skilled to take control of the session and navigate a path through the shoot that works for both of us.

I know a lot of photographers don’t like to show their clients the images they’ve taken on the back of the camera during the shoot, but I do. I find this an integral part of my process, which leads to another of the many questions I always ask my clients during the shoot as I share with them the images I’ve taken so far: “Does this work for you?” or “Is this what you are looking for?” By including my subject in the process of shooting them, two things happen: 1) they get to see the quality of the work I am producing, which gives them confidence and trust in my abilities and 2) they get to see how awesome I am making them look, which gives them confidence in themselves. I cannot overstate how important this little step is and how it creates that positive and empowering experience everyone who gets photographed should feel. And, as always, their reactions to the results I am achieving are always off the map.

What do I love most about being a photographer? I get asked this question a lot and I am always at a loss as to how to put into words that feeling I get living my life as a creator of memories.

It’s what I do and what I’ve always done. I’ve been making photographs since I was a kid, and now, all these years later, I still get the same thrill when I stumble upon a scene that steals the breath from my lungs and makes my heart race as I quickly pull my camera up to my eye. There is something so satisfying in taking whatever it is in front of me and being able frame it perfectly and, seeing it on the back of the camera or on the computer at home, saying to myself, “That’s exactly what I saw and exactly how I wanted to see it.”

Being a photographer is not a routine job. It’s not the same thing day in and out. Every time I wander the streets of the Toronto, every destination I visit, every person who enters my studio, is a different and challenging subject in their own right. And I love that. I love the process of figuring out how to make whatever I’m seeing in front of me at look amazing.

Out of all the places I’ve been, the amazing things I’ve seen, the adventures I’ve experienced, all the ups and downs and heartache and joy of my life, and all the amazing people I’ve loved with over the years, the one thread that has tied everything in my life together has been photography. The entire arc of my life has been experienced through the viewfinder of my camera. Some have said that I have missed out on the direct experience of my life by always having a camera in front of my face, but I beg to differ: experiencing life through the viewfinder has heightened my ability to see and record the sublime details of a scene that no one else sees, to see patterns and colours that ordinarily don’t get a seconds notice, and to freeze those powerful moments that define life and give it meaning, into a tangible thing that you can look back on and hold dear for the rest of your life. That is no small thing.

I think what inspired me to start my own business was undoubtedly the reason why almost all photographers eventually turn professional; since practically everyone I knew was asking me to click them - and offering to pay for my services to do it - it just made sense to formalize and legitimize what I was having fun doing anyway. The transition from “Photography Enthusiast” to “Professional Photographer” was hardly a noticeable step.

My business, Froz’n Motion Photography, is the natural evolution of an obsession that began at a very early age for me - the discovery and fascination with the art of photography. Growing up in a small town on the West coast of Canada, I always knew that I wanted to create something, that I wanted to bring what I felt inside out into the open, I just didn’t know how. I couldn’t draw to save my life and I certainly couldn’t paint or write a song or a story or a poem, but making photographs somehow made sense to me. And they mattered. I think I was 13 when I got my first camera, and honestly, you’ll never see me anywhere without one today.

Choosing a photographer is a very personal thing. You have to choose someone who is skilled and experienced, of course, but also someone you really like, someone who is going to be easy to work with and who is going to get along with your family and friends (if they are shooting your wedding). You need to find someone who makes you feel comfortable in your own skin, someone with a creative vision that knocks your socks off, who can dispel your nervousness and make you look great in the final product. That’s because being photographed is one of the most intimate experiences you can have with someone you are not in a direct physical relationship with. By giving someone permission to photograph you, you are exposing yourself to a complete stranger and that’s never an easy thing to do. In fact, it actually requires a lot of guts.

The reason someone should choose me as their photographer is because I’m good at what I do. I’ve been doing it a long time and I produce excellent results, and, above all else, I absolutely love being a photographer.

Annie Leibowitz has famously said that it’s not the photographer’s job to set the client at ease, but that’s not true at all. That’s exactly what their job is. Bark clients should choose me as their photographer because I know exactly how to put them at ease and make them look more amazing than they ever dreamed possible.

And finally, I think the most important reason Bark clients should choose me to photograph them is because I am a lot of fun to work with and also because I personally position and direct all of my clients. Not a lot of photographers do.

Almost everyone I’ve ever met has confessed their fear of having no idea how to pose for the camera. And I get that. As the day of your shoot draws nearer, trying to imagine what you are going to do once you arrive in the studio can be utterly terrifying. But it doesn’t have to be like that. I’ve always said that your job as my subject is to focus all your energy on looking amazing. My job as your photographer is to capture all that amazingness with my camera. And to do that, all I do is take responsibility for your posing. My personal strength as a photographer lies in my ability to position you in a way that is both flattering and comfortable. “Turn your head a little to the left and drop your focus,” “Try putting your arm there,” “Bend your front knee and come up on your toes.” These are the kinds of direction you will hear throughout your session. My approach is to work with you to gently draw out of you the most perfect version of you possible. And the cool thing is, it doesn’t matter if you can’t pose! It doesn’t even matter what you look like or if you’ve never had a professional photo taken in your entire life! Because I have worked with all ages and body types - from great grandmothers to newborn babies and every shape and size in between. And I make them all look amazing.

That’s why you should choose me as your photographer.
