Hello my name is Luc ……Call me "Luke",
I have been doing beauty, fashion and glamour photography for over 15 years and I love it. I worked with agency models, freelance models and ModelMayhem models to create beautiful portfolios. I do studio and location photography in Barrie and Orillia (and surrounding area when beneficial for my portfolio and an appropriate location is available.) I also do shoots with anyone interested in modelling or people who like to work on creative projects. I created this website myself (from coding....Yikes!) to display some of my work so far.
I am a perfectionist and always keep the model looking real and better than her best, beauty is my passion. Always looking for new faces to create beautiful images and new up to date retouching techniques. I chose the name Beautyfier for three reasons, 1) My father always use to say if God created anything more beautiful than a woman he kept it for himself. 2) Because of Photoshop it is now possible to make pretty women more beautiful. Keeping the statement of my father in mind it becames very interesting for me to be able to use Photoshop and "beautify" a person! 3) My family name starts with the letters BEAU, in French it means beautiful.
I often work in collaboration with a professional makeup artist. RoseAnne, very experienced she is also a certified hair stylist, a photographer (and a great friend). I use professional lighting, advance photography skills (Ryerson Certification) and editing skills (Photoshop Certification) to have a professional finished quality picture that will be up to publication standards. My aim is to always capture the beauty of my subject and then enhance it further; that is also accomplished by folllowing the Golden Ratio as part of my retouching.
I am a friendly person who likes to meet new people. I am always looking for creative people since I am more technical than creative. I always welcome your ideas, feedback and concepts. If you have no concepts in mind, no problems, I will find one. Being part of creating eye catching photos is so much fun! I would love to network with Models, MUA and other Photographers. I want to say thank you to the people I have worked with already, they are all amazing! They keep my passion alive and helped me turn ideas into fantastic pictures.
