Headshot photographer

Hi, my name is John Carvalho and I’ve been a Toronto professional photographer for over 20 years. In addition to spending a lot of my time taking portraits and headshots, I also do everything from wedding photography, event photography to product photography. My goal during every photo shoot is to create timeless images that are artistic and memorable. I take great pride in my work and above all, work to ensure that every client leaves their photo shoot feeling positive about the images we have captured.

I encourage you to take a few minutes to further explore my site. If you connect with some of the photos, I welcome the opportunity to talk to me about how we can collaborate on your future photographic needs!

Artistic headshots and business portraits

Business photography is one of the most in-demand services at my studio. As a business owner, I understand the importance of a good portrait that represents you in the best light. As a photographer, I aim to create images that surpass those of your competition or colleagues, while simultaneously making sure that we bring out your true personality.

I also do a wide range of family photography including group family portraits, couples, maternity photos, and children. Additionally, under the branch of family photography, we take family celebrations such as baptisms, bar mitzvahs and birthdays.

Over the years I have taken headshots of business owners, professors, doctors, real estate agents, actors, chefs and others looking to get a great photo to update their social media websites and LinkedIn profiles.

Location and Event Photography

In addition to having a photo studio in my store, I also provide location photography services for my clients. I have experience in event photography, such as conferences and conventions, as well as in-office business portraits for my corporate clients. I also frequently shoot on-location at local parks, historic or modern buildings for individuals, families, couples, and fashion. This is certainly one of my favorite types of photography.

Wedding photography

As a wedding photographer, I have had the opportunity to capture those special moments at more than 100 weddings. We have photographed weddings across the GTA as well as destination weddings. I greatly enjoy working closely with the couple to learn about their wants and desires for that special day. I provide full-service wedding photography from the engagement photos through to pre-wedding events, the ceremony, and reception. We can complete the process by providing full printing services as well as a custom wedding album.
