Helmed by renowned photographer David Haskell, Haskell St. Paul captures intimate moments during a comprehensive shooting session before artfully arranging the images with professional layout and design. Kissy-face clients can enlist the experienced eye and full photographic studio or any location to document their dramatic pose sequence or impromptu staring contests during a one-hour in-studio photo shoot. The package includes one 8"x10" print and three 5"x7" digital images of the subject's choice, which are professionally retouched in order to yield the most flattering and poignant product. Equipped with more than 20 years of snapping supermodels, dignitaries, and sports figures, Haskell St. Paul's optic prowess endows headshots, engagement photos, and obedience-school-graduation shots with clarity and elegance.
Camera-ready couples can also summon Haskell's sophisticated shutter choreography to immortalize their nuptials with the full wedding package. During the four-hour shooting session, two seasoned photographers record poignant moments of the united pair. After recovering from 90-minute personal toasts and overworked tear ducts, newlyweds can savour their big day by perusing a DVD of all images, including 24 retouched versions, a proof disc, and one-year access to their online album.
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.
