"Sue's attention to detail is legendary and her work shows it. She's creative, with a real eye for beauty and talent for getting fantastic shots done on time and
on budget, always exceeding expectations. I love working
with her."

Carolyn Nichilo Verkuyl 
creative director


"What can I say about Sue? She rocks! Sue and I have done some pretty challenging shoots together and she is always up to the challenge. A great sense of style as well as an amazing positive attitude. My clients love her. Oh ya, she also has awesome hair."

Dave Larsen senior art director


"Working with Sue is an absolute pleasure. She's professional, open minded and gets the job done, always beyond expectation."

Wendy Schmidt client

"Working with Sue is always delightful. She is thorough and efficient and negotiable if you are stuck with a budget. But above all, her work is stellar. She has a fabulous eye for texture, colour and lighting and she brings a real creative flair to every project. Surprisingly she has no ego whatsoever and because of all this, she is my first go-to photographer for any project."

Lesley Van De Ven
creative group head


"Not only is Sue an excellent photographer, she's wonderful to work with and always brings a fresh approach to every job."

Amy Morrison art director



Shortly after opening up my studio I was featured as a "Fresh Face" photographer in Applied Arts Magazine and somehow 20 years has gone by.

My photographs vary in styles as well as subject matter, everything from babies (sometimes they cry but I have managed to keep clients smiling), to food (I do like to nibble) and product/still life as I like to play with stuff too.

Adding to the fun, I have been photographing a variety of cats and dogs for packaging. Some packages are currently on store shelves and more to arrive soon.

I enjoy working with a variety of art directors/designers whether from ad agencies, magazines or clients directly.

I like the challenges and differences each assignment brings to my studio.





Some of the clients I've worked with:

  Purina, Cat Chow, Dog Chow, Alpo
TD Bank
Bonne Bell
American Express 
Fuji Canada
  Allergic Living Magazine
  Style At Home Magazine 
Today's Parent Magazine
