creative photography

a view from here, there and everywhere…

These days anyone with a camera is calling themselves a photographer, but not everyone has an eye for photography or the skill and equipment to shoot professionally, let alone handle the post processing that should be done, so check out the view from here. Luckham Creative provides professional photographic services to clients as a stand alone service or as part of a graphic design or web design project. Whether photographing a waste picker in India, a live concert, or the beauty of a local park (with a bunch of zombies), shooting creatively enhances the impression a photograph will have.

If you’re looking for photography, whether for a local event you need documented, a project that needs photos shot outside of Ottawa, or even in another country, I have the experience and the equipment to handle the job. I can also shoot the photographs to spice up the print piece that I’ll happily design for you, or the shots that will add life to the web site I can do for you. Whatever your visual needs, local or on location, I can shoot what you need with my usual creative style.

Call today to discuss your creative photography needs.

concert photography

Concert photography is the combination of my two biggest passions, music and photography. Music has always been my greatest love, and I’ve been shooting photos ever since I was a kid, but the first time I pointed my camera at music was at concerts by Yes, Renaissance, Tom Petty, Dire Straits and U2, it was magical and that was just the first couple of years! Since then I’ve shot photos at both concerts and festivals in Vancouver, Ottawa and in the U.K., of David Bowie, Bryan Ferry, John Fogerty, Fleetwood Mac, Diana Ross, Talking Heads, The Tragically Hip, B.B. King, Ella Fitzgerald, Rush, Deep Purple, Duran Duran, Kate Bush, Pink, Tegan and Sara, k.d. lang, Whitehorse, Amanda Marshall and so many many more.

photo illusionism

Luckham Creative can also provide image editing services that will exceed your expectations, whether simple colour corrections and deletions, or more complex editing such as image compositing or photo merges that replace parts of an image with something else, or merging multiple images to create a whole new, real or surreal scene. It’s this level of creativity that can set your web site and/or print pieces aside from the rest and give it that memorable ‘wow’ factor. In addition to providing this service to my web and print design clients I also do commissioned work, shooting and editing the photos, or editing photos that you supply. Ask about creative photo manipulation and you’ll discover what I call photo illusionism, a term I use to indicate that sometimes what I create, though based in the world of photography, is not completely real.
