When it comes down to it, admits Exclusive Moment Photography’s Julia Unchura, it's not the years she spent helping her father in his photography studio that made her pick up a camera of her own. Though staging shots and working with equipment certainly helped her learn about photography, it was the vast beauty of Canada, her adopted country, she says, that triggered her passion for capturing images. Since 2004 when her family left their hometown in Kiev and settled in Ottawa, Julia has followed in the footsteps of her father and his father before him, dedicating her life to taking pictures.
While Canadian landscapes continue to inspire her, Julia now focuses on capturing candid human behaviours. Influenced heavily by the whimsical street photography of Henri Cartier-Bresson and the wedding photography of Emin Kuliyev—with whom she recently studied in New York City—Julia dedicates each of her shoots to the process of drawing out the essence of her subjects. She combats the camera-shyness of clients and bashful poltergeists with casual conversation and her bubbly personality. Though Julia happily welcomes clients into her studio, nature’s call frequently beckons her to lug her equipment outside for fresh-air shoots around the city.
Reflecting on this childhood, Chris Keating sometimes feels as if he didn't exist. His parents' divorce left him with very little tangible evidence of his formative years, so he's spent his adult life as a photographer making sure children can look back fondly at warm family memories. Chris Keating and his Calgary staff have made this a reality for more than 3,000 families since opening the doors to Towne Photography in 2006. There, the professional photographic crew shoots posed and candid shots of families, children, couples, and babies at picturesque parks or against their studio backdrops, and they also snap triumphant graduate portraits, intimate prenatal shots, and provocative passport pics that make border crossing a breeze. Their ironclad guarantee allows unsatisfied clients to request reshoots, reprints, or resizing on all photographs, and they vow to remake or recapture any artwork that sustains damage over the years. Chris also takes his photographic knowledge on the road to conduct Betterphoto Workshops across the United States and Canada, teaching novice photographers how to artistically preserve their most precious memories.
Paige Cody tells stories with her photos. Her favorite tales spring from candid, emotional details: "the warm, genuine love in a mother's eyes, the look on a confused baby's face, the raw annoyance between siblings. . . ."
At Paper Crane Studios, she strives to capture “anything that stands out from the hundreds of photos we take a session." The photographer has spent years doing media and corporate-type photography and videography, and she is pleased with the studio’s new family direction.
Paige loves to create imaginative photo sets, and she describes her style as having a romantic and fairy tale edge. Her many sets include baby animals, mermaids, Disney princesses, and holiday scenery. She even occasionally uses photo effects and filters to further customize each image.

Photographer Jérôme Scullino moved from his native France to England, New York, and the Dominican Republic before finding his true calling. Since going pro more than 20 years ago, Scullino has remained an artist at heart, interested in revealing the inner world of his subjects using his keen aesthetic eye. That’s why he sits down with clients and discusses their visions before shooting weddings, family portraits, or boudoir sessions. Scullino dissolves behind the camera, capturing fleeting moments and memorable teeth-whitening sessions with a journalist’s knack for narrative. He conducts photo shoots on-location or under the tastefully arranged lights of his studio.
