Meet the team
Appreciating the beauty of life, being happy, relaxed, a bit irreverent and endlessly optimistic, is a big part of who I am and expressing that in my work fuels me as a photographer.
Being a photographer is not a "job" to me. It's my passion.
Photography fascinates me in every way. I have a totally nerdy side that loves all the technical details: the cameras, lighting equipment, software and computer programs. I eat it up! It's the tools of my poetry.
I specialize in creating dramatic portraits in beautiful natural environments. I adore the thrill of lighting, posing and coaching just about anyone to feel glamorous and sexy on their wedding day.
If I were the wealthiest woman in the world, I would still be a wedding photographer. I love it that much.
I'm really proud of the team Burnett Photography has become. We have so much fun with our couples, I think you would be crazy not to hire us!
I came into photography through my wife, Shirleen, who initially wanted someone to schlep around her heavy equipment!
That was 10 years ago. Today, being a photographer is second nature to me and I enjoy it as much as Shirleen.
I specialize in capturing candid portraits of people. I love telephoto lenses because they allow me to catch spontaneous moments, often without my muses knowing. I love these unscripted "gems".
My "full time" job is as a professor of geography at Mount Royal University but I find I spend more time working with Shirleen than otherwise.
It's all good because I love both challenges, and allows me to digress into geological information about the formation of the Canadian Rockies with our couples during our portrait sessions. But don't worry. I won't test you at the end.
Isis is named after an Egyptian Goddess. Need I say more?
She is fluent in French, English and currently working on Spanish. A lover of chickens, Japanese anime, scuba diving and food.
Isis is a hard-core critic of my photography and pushes me to improve my craft in ways only a smart-assed teenage daughter can. You can be sure that Isis is working for your best interests as she looks over my shoulder while I edit and makes biting comments like "I've seen better" or "Really, mom?" Impressing her is harder than winning an award with some of the best international competitions in the world. I know I've arrived when she smiles and give me an enthusiastic thumbs up.
With such high standards, I know we can expect amazing things from this gal in the future. Until then, she carries my gear and holds lights!
