We’re all about photography for weddings, families, businesses, and more. We’re about making beautiful memories that last and promoting you with great commercial photos. You’ll also find photography articles and tutorials here. Keep reading to learn a little bit more Firefly Photo, Tim (me), and what will be offered on this site.
Hi, I’m Tim. I’ve been a photographer for over 10 years and I enjoy photography so much that in 2009 I opened Firefly Photo and started shooting professionally.
I got into this business by shooting weddings and although they are a lot of work, they are still my favourite to shoot. Over time I’ve taken on family photos, couples portraits, commercial photography, dance, landscape, and more. I’ve even done high volume school and sports portrait photography by working with Bill Fowle of Fowle Foto.
Through all of this I’ve learned and used a lot of different techniques and gear. Although I currently use Nikons & Macs, I once relied on Canon gear and PCs. I’ve interacted with subjects young and old, big and small. I enjoy finding the right pose, the right lighting, the right background, and coaxing out a smile.
I’ve done web design as a hobby for the last few years too and as a result of wanting to do it myself, the Firefly Website wasn’t very visible or interactive. After years of learning a lot of web design, I’ve redone the site with WordPress combined with a theme from WooThemes so that it now has a blog built in.
I want to use the blog as a way to interact with you. At least once a week you’ll see one of the following:
- New Firefly Photo Promotion
- Firefly Photo News
- Wedding Guides (to get the most out of your photographer)
- Portrait Prep Guides (tips to get the best pictures)
- Photography Tutorials
- Gear Reviews & Recommendations
- Links to other Learning Resources
- More when I think of it!
