Marlboro's Family Events: What to Expect

 On the day of your shoot our photographer Marlboro will spend between an hour to three hours capturing all the little details of your family event. He’ll start by taking the time to get to know the host of your event and to understand the vision you have for your space.  Next, he’ll move around your event and chat with your guests while he gets some candid shots. If you’re worried that some children may be camera shy, do not fear! Marlboro has a couple kids of his own so he will do his best to make jokes and make your kids laugh! With kids he loves to do shots of your family playing together and walking while holding hands. The key for special events like this is to make the shoot so much fun that everyone forgets about being in front of the camera and continues to have a great time!

Marlboro uses a professional lighting setup to control for any lighting situation. His shoots are not posed. They are directed. Meaning that Marlboro will help you feel comfortable and direct you in order to achieve the perfect shot.  After your shoot, final edited photos will be delivered via online gallery within 10 business days. The photos can be downloaded in original, high res (for printing) and web size. Expedited service is available.

Focal Photographer: Marlboro


If you’re just looking for any photographer you may want to look somewhere else. Marlboro is a true visual storyteller - he captures moments that you won’t be able to help yourself look back on and smile.

Marlboro sees photography as a 3 dimensional art on a 2 dimensional surface which is why he is always able to find the perfect angle, using a combination of natural and artificial light to compose and capture beautiful authentic moments.

Marlboro is the type of artist that thinks carefully about each click of the shutter. You'll see him continuously adjusting his lights, straightening out decor and fine tuning everything to get his perfect composition. There's nothing that he does that is without purpose.

Marlboro is also a wonderfully caring person who will make you laugh, feel comfortable and like the star of your own show in front of the camera.

Marlboro embodies all the qualities of the perfect Focal visual storyteller - his attention to detail, artistic vision and true desire to make his clients happy is unmatched.

FAQ

  • Will you pose and direct us?

    Marlboro's shoots aren't posed, they are directed. Meaning that Marlboro will help you feel comfortable and direct you in order to achieve the perfect shot.  

  • What happens if I don't know the date and time I want my shoot? What if I need to change the booking?

    Feel free to book a package! We know what some people want to gift our packages and don't know exactly when they want the shoot. You can book a package and then change the date and time as needed!

    If you need to change it or cancel, we will be happy to adjust your booking as long as you give us 24 hrs notice!

  • We get really nervous in front of the camera, how will the photographer ensure we're comfortable?

    It can be intimidating being in front of the camera, with a big strobe light pointed at you - but don’t worry we’ll make you feel like a movie star!

    To get the perfect shot, it’s critical that the subject and photographer are comfortable and trust each other. Marlboro will put you at ease by talking with you, cracking the occasional joke and shooting while you talk. He also has some great exercises to help you relax, feel confident and find comfort in front of the camera.

  • What if my event is located outside of Victoria?

    Typically we offer our services within Greater Victoria but if there is a location outside of the city that you would like, just let us know and we will be open to accommodating you. A travel fee may be applicable.

  • What if my child is really shy? I am not sure they will cooperate.

    We will make the session fun! Usually the case is a shy little one to start, and by the end I’ve got a new small friend giving me high fives. If it gets too overwhelming, it’s no problem to take a break from shooting too. With years of working with children during sessions, I’ve got quite a few tricks up my sleeve.

  • Why do you use such fancy lights? Why not just use natural light?

    Think of photography as language and light its vocabulary. Many “photographers” use natural light because it is easy. However, to truly compose the perfect shot, a photographer must control the complex interplay of light on the subject. To do so, Marlboro uses multiple lights to fill the unwanted shadows and add dimension between the foreground, middle ground and background.
