Before photography, the only way people could preserve their most treasured memories was by forcing everyone around them to stand completely still for days at a time. Today's Groupon presents a less complicated option: for $69, you get a photoshoot package from renown photographer David Haskell of Haskell St. Paul in St. Catharines. Your one-hour, in-studio portrait session includes one 8"x10" print and four digital images of your choice on disc, all of which will be professionally retouched to accent your most flattering natural and supernatural glows. With more that 20 years of experience snapping supermodels, dignitaries, and sports figures, Haskell St. Paul’s keen artistic eye does for family portraits, professional headshots, and engagement photos what halos have done for angels since they stopped feathering their bangs.
VTalk Radio interviewed David Haskell, the owner of Haskell Photography, about his business and career.
At the age of 19, photographer David Haskell made the acquaintance of an InStyle magazine editor. He recounted this story during an interview with VTalk Radio Photography Spotlight, adding, "the editor invited me to their offices in Toronto and asked if I would cover an editorial." Since then, his work has been published in more than 70 countries and his subjects have ranged from Phyllis Diller to Jay-Z. Now, Haskell transforms regular people into models.
Haskell's studio offers creative packages, too. For instance, kids can play dress up and get their makeup done during Ultimate birthday-party shoots, which include up to 50 images of each party-goer, a group shot, and pizza or chicken fingers to snack on.
