Before photography, family memories were kept alive through annual reenactments of the year's best moments, despite Grandpa's continued miscasting as the mischievous puppy. Treasure your memories with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a photography package including a 75-minute portrait session, one 5"x7" print, and a 20-image DVD from Devin Card Professional Photography (a $334.88 value, including HST). Sessions are on location in Victoria, Oak Bay, Fairfield, Uplands, Central Saanich, Esquimalt and View Royal. Customers can request other areas for an additional fee.
Expert shutterbug Devin Card mixes a creative, modern style with classic portrait techniques to capture clients at their choice of picturesque locations. Subjects pose along the waterfront at Ogden point, smile beneath the stone archways of downtown legislature buildings, or give bunny-ears to seashells at Dallas Beach. Devin focuses on creating low-stress sessions that transform even the most camera-shy customers into relaxed, natural photo models. After shoots, Devin touches up and digitally re-masters each image, all of which are posted on an online photo gallery. Customers then choose 20 images to burn to a DVD and one image to become a 5"x7" print, ready to be framed and secretly hung in the Hall of Fame of their choice. Customers can purchase additional photos from the online gallery, and they receive a 15% discount on all future orders and photo sessions.
Devin Card Professional Photography
Portrait photography arguably depends most on the art of being unobtrusive. Award-winning photographer Devin Card learned this more than 12 years ago, when his photographic adventures across the globe taught him to adopt a more naturalistic approach to his craft that yielded stunning images from moments he allowed to unfold organically. Today, Devin continues to employ the lessons of his travels, blending into the background at weddings and other celebratory events, which often puts his subjects so much at ease they almost forget a camera is present. His uncanny knack for being in the right place at the right time for a shot has not gone unnoticed by former clients, who praise his work for showing off “many different personalities” and “capturing a story” worth remembering.
Though he specializes in portraiture and wedding photography, Devin also lends his skills to businesses and animals looking to update their online dating profiles. When he isn’t crouching behind chair aisles and tiered cakes to snap creative photos at weddings, Devin travels throughout central Victoria for on-location shoots. Some of his favourite photogenic locations include the flowery gardens of Beacon Hill Park, the lively streets of downtown, and Ogden Point Breakwater, whose famously shy lighthouse blushes red in the background of sunset shots.
