David MacKinnon

I am an Ottawa-area model photographer who enjoys creating images that tell stories.

For photographers who want to get started in model photography I offer personalized on-on-one training on how to conduct a model photoshoot.

For prospective models I offer an introductory portfolio-building session in which you receive 20 minimally-processed image proofs. From these you can select up to 5 to be finished for your portfolio.

Both sessions are three hours in length and can be conducted either in a local-area studio or I can bring my portable studio setup to you, showing you how to turn your space into a temporary studio. Prices start at $150. See my Rates page for details or contact me for details and bookings.

I also offer black tape design and application for those interested in creating a look similar to that seen in The Black Tape Project. Rates start at $100/design for custom designs. Allow 30 to 60 minutes per design application depending on the complexity. For custom designs allow up to one month for the design process in which I collaborate with the model and/or photographer through an iterative design process.
