Improved product photos now available

A goal of mine is to have more services for our clients, to be ever more helpful and to assist them in marketing themselves to their clients. With that in mind we have been working to improve our product photo services. To that end we have updated with new equipment in the studio to allow us to be able to provide better and more affordable product photos

So there is no need to ship your products south and have to work with a photographer over the phone. You can have your products photographed right here in the north to show and sell online.

Simply bring your items into the studio here in North Bay and we can create images to show your products off at their best. It is even possible for us to bring our studio to you if your items are just too large to move.

Call me today to talk about your ideas!

It’s time for photos for the 2017 grads

It’s grad photo season again and we have been kept busy these last few weeks doing photos for the graduating class of 2017. At Polar we have gowns, collars and hats for most of the local schools so it doesn’t matter which school you attend, we have you covered. So if you have not done your graduation photos yet or you don’t like the ones that were taken at school, give me a call and we can set up a time for you. Remember that included in our grad photo session you can take a casual portrait that you can use for your resume or give as a special gift to Mom and who deserves a special gift more than Mom. Many of our students take advantage of this casual photo to bring something that represents their time in high school in to the studio. We can work many items into a special portrait, just check out our gallery of past work to see if they give you any ideas. Give me a call at Polar 705-472-1621 to set up your grad photo session today.

Lynn Johnston’s new Book is out

I was absolutely thrilled to have world famous Lynn Johnston visit my portrait studio a while back. She was looking to have a new portrait taken for the cover of her soon to be released book. I couldn’t say anything until it hit the shelves of your local book store and it almost made me burst waiting but, finally it has come out and I am finally able to tell everyone.

“The comic art of Lynn Johnston” gathers together a generous selection of Lynn Johnston’s daily comic strips and Sunday pages, spanning the lives of the Patterson family.  The book also features some of Johnston’s most popular narratives, interspersed with an essay that chronicles the development of her drawing, her life, influences both personal and artistic, and the history of her wildly successful comic strip. The book was written by both Lynn and her daughter Katherine Hadway.

I am so very proud that it features a Polar Studio portrait on it’s cover and hope that you will pick up a copy so you can read about Lynn’s journey.


Top 25 in Canada



We just got some great news, one of our clients was just named one of the top 25 most influential Canadians in the Justice system. Allison Dellandrea, Crown counsel, Ministry of the Attorney General has been a key player in advancing the understanding of crimes against children by law enforcement officials, fellow lawyers, and the judiciary. “Allison is a tireless resource and is the penultimate legal mind for a prosecutorial position on all things related to child exploitation and sexual assault offences. For such a difficult subject that inherently involves very taxing emotional and legal issues, Allison always has time to provide sound advice to other Crowns prosecuting these very difficult and sensitive offences. Her efforts have made a tangible difference in making our society safer.” Congratulations Allison!
