PORTRAIT Photographers of the Comox Valley… Round One

There are a few photographers that have presence in the Comox Valley. I’d like to share a few notable ones with you. After all, as a photographer, we all share different visions. As a potential client, you should see all photographers out there and find the one that best suits your personal vision.

There are dozens of photographers in the Comox Valley. Dozens! I’ll help you see who’s out there and give you some samples of their work. Loving Baby Ventures’ photography won’t be included in these posts.

Tracy Russell Photography
Location of photographer: Comox, BC

Tracy does some amazing photos and is pretty good with Photoshop. She can manipulate images into beautiful art work. She uses many props, especially with newborns, and utilizes many professional techniques in order to get the best squishy baby poses. She likes to soften the look of her images as you can see in the photos below. This is good for people that love that butter soft look. Relaxing and calm.

Trina Carey Photography
Location of photographer: Courtenay, BC

Trina’s best works are her boudoir photos. She has a keen eye for good framing of the photos and composes them well. Her focusing is spot-on, and her clients always look like they feel great, which is super important.

She does work with maternity, engagement, children, babies, delivery, and so forth, but I feel her strength is in adults and boudoir.

Graeme Ellis Photography
Location of photographer: Courtenay, BC 

Graeme has an array of styles. Meaning that he has not honed his own style just yet, so his consistency is all over the place in terms of his creative output (Must be a long lost brother of myself! I don’t have a signature style, either). Not necessarily a bad thing unless you have a certain look in mind.  He gets some amazing shots:

Crystal Clear Photography
Location of photographer: Cumberland, BC

She definitely has a niche in children’s and wedding photography here in the Valley. Crystal Clear is pretty well known. I first heard of her while attending a midwife appointment in Courtenay. I won’t say much as her work speaks for itself!
