The two questions I get asked the most about my photography are “how did you get started and what do you like to take pictures of the most”?
The first question is easy. Photography has always been an interest of mine. As a kid I used to take my parent’s camera and shoot any and everything. I loved it! My parents, not so much. I didn’t have a clue what I was doing and back in those days it was film.
After completing York University’s Business Administration program I started my career in radio. Not on-air though, but in sales, clearly I don’t have a face for radio (see picture above, lol). Always trying to do things differently I put my hobby of photography to use for my clients and Lawrence Kerr Photography was born. As my interest grew I took courses with the world renowned Scott Kelby and Joe McNally and night classes as well as workshops.
So now for the difficult question what do I like to shoot the most? Ultimately, it’s the shot that you are going to love and want to share with your family, friends, fans and customers. It might be a cop-out, but knowing that you have trusted me to produce something, be it a corporate headshot or a killer profile pic, family portrait, your newborn, to catch that kiss or the product shot for your website, is it. Sure I may have been recognized as the Black Canadian Awards Best Photographer, won Now Magazine’s Reader’s Poll for Best Photographer, shot celebrities, International Models, Miss Universe contestant, Actors/Comedians Who’s Who in Canadian Track & Field, what I really love to see when a client shares an image I have created for them and it makes it to the Number Ones Club. Those are the pics that become the number one most ‘liked’ image in their profile or website. It means we have created something that connected to the intended audience. It’s a nice feeling.
Well enough about me. Let’s talk about you joining the not-so-exclusive ‘Number One Club’. You can contact me 647-457-4686 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to working with you to create an image you will love.
Have a picture perfect day.
