For a long time I’ve shied away from taking portraits of my clients, partly because I’m much more comfortable photographing buildings, or to be more specific non moving objects. But when Bruce Clemmensen of Clemmensen & Associates asked me to photograph him for his appointment for the Order of Canada, I decided that this would be a great opportunity to get over my reservations of photographing people. Bruce was an amazing subject to shoot and we had a great time during the session. Now I wonder why I didn’t try it sooner – I’m eager to shoot my next moving subject. Congratulation to Bruce Clemmensen for being recognized for his volunteer work chairing the Canadian Commission on Building and Fire Codes. It’s a well deserved honour!
