Business Headshot Portraits

Why do I need a headshot?

Whether you’re a corporate executive, small business person or aspiring musician, your headshot is your logo. As one of your chief marketing tools,  this logo gets you noticed and gets you work by connecting people to your brand through an image of you that reveals your personality and conveys your approachability, friendliness and professionalism. You only get once chance to make a first impression. Why not make one that people will remember?

What is a great headshot?

A great headshot isn’t just a photograph taken with expensive equipment; it relies instead on a combination of the lighting, poses, expressions and compositions that bring out your personality naturally. To look natural, you need to feel comfortable. Only you can bring your personality to the shoot, but a great headshot photographer, like David Gadreau, can spot it, capture it and ensure it comes through in the final product. Throughout your session, David knows how to help you relax, positioning you towards the camera in genuine form, and most importantly what to say to evoke those warm, spontaneous expressions that make your personality shine through the lens.

Props to Cops

Props to Cops Banner

With police and law enforcement coming under increasing fire for a handful of highly publicized cases of police brutality, WDCX Radio and the Crawford Broadcasting Company prepare to launch ‘Props to Cops!’


WDCX General Manager Brett Larson announces ‘Props to Cops’ a month-long campaign –beginning July 1st- designed to thank the men and women who risk so much to make our lives safer. “Law enforcement represents the thin blue line that exists between us and chaos,” Larson says. “Everyone is against police brutality, but we are proud to say we are 100% FOR law enforcement!”

110,000 watt super-station 99.5 FM WDCX (reaching Buffalo NY, Erie PA, and Toronto ON), WDCD-AM 970 (Buffalo NY/Toronto ON) and WDCX-AM 990 (Rochester NY) is joining hands with local businesses to celebrate law enforcement during the month of July.

Larson says the stations are teaming up with local businesses that agree to offer goods and services to police officers and other members of law enforcement during the month of July. “Whether it’s a free cup of coffee or 50% off a meal or whatever a business chooses to offer to cops, we are not afraid to express our gratitude and say that we stand behind, those who protect us. We will interview police officers from all over Western New York and Southern Ontario and offer opportunities for listeners to thank police for the ways they have benefited as a result of police presence in our communities.”

To discover what businesses are offering these goods and services and/or to add a business to the list, go to and click on ‘Props to Cops!’ or email:

Business Headshots

We are just starting up a new product line of portraits.  Business headshots.  For all the business people out there that have a contact page on a website, or use social websites like LinkedIn, this is a perfect way for you to get that headshot you need of yourself.  These can also be deployed for a whole department or company.  We will deploy field equipment at your place of business and photograph the required group.  Why not be remembered as approachable, friendly and kind to anyone searching for you online?  The high resolution image is included for press releases and other such requirements.

We look forward to hearing from any business professionals that need a new headshot or updated headshot if it’s not been updated lately.

Port Colborne Skateboarding

Recently I had a chance to stop in at the Port Colborne skate park.  Sadly it was right before a heavy rain storm so there wasn’t as much time to shoot as I planned to have. I still was able to get some shots despite the short time frame.
