FORTIUS SPORT & HEALTH
CALEB COUSENS, MARKETING COORDINATOR
“In 2012 I hired Mark Whitehead to shoot company portraits for our team at Fortius. Mark arrived with a mobile studio and set up in our boardroom to photograph each of the board members. In 2013 we began working on the initial marketing campaign to launch Fortius Sport & Health. Again, we brought Mark in to work with our team and produce the media assets we needed to launch the company brand. We have since worked together on a number of photo shoots at Fortius during 2013, 2014 and 2015. Mark took creative direction very well and worked with us to achieve the different looks we required. Mark is a pleasure to work with and is a total professional. Some of the images we needed required elaborate lighting set ups and some of them were simplified due to space restrictions and time; Mark was able to adapt to each situation and provide a solution that met our needs. Mark is a detail-orientated person and has a very positive attitude; I would not hesitate to recommend him.”

“As artists and partners in Mirror Mirror Atelier, our team has had the pleasure of working with Mark Whitehead from Get The Shot Studios for a multitude of sessions. Editorial, outdoor as well as studio.
When it comes to Mark he has great direction and instruction for models and subjects alike. Guiding them and making them feel at ease.
We strongly appreciate his organization and preparation for shoots, from the callsheet to mood boards and the smallest details that truly come through.
His professionalism towards us and his clients makes him a great photographer we can recommend with confidence. His fine details in editing and desire to get creatively involved in collaborative projects makes his studio an even more fun and supportive experience! “

“Hero Culture Inc. has had the pleasure of partnering with Get The Shot Studios since our inception. From our very first shoot in January 2012, Mark Whitehead and his exceptional team have curated a collection of images that vividly and effectively portray our brand and aesthetic. Each year we have worked with Mark on both small and large scale projects from catalogue product shots to on location photo shoots that involved multiple models, extensive wardrobe and lighting equipment. Inevitably, despite always being thrilled with Mark’s work, each project out does the previous one. Mark’s meticulous attention to detail, whether it’s lighting, positioning of athletes or post production work, is the reason his images garner so much admiration and respect. Hero Culture Inc. is excited to partner with Mark and his studio again this year. In our estimation, Mark Whitehead and Get The Shot Studios have positioned themselves as the premiere athletic photography studio in Vancouver.“
“We recently did an engagement photo shoot with Mark from Get the Shot Studios and it was a wonderful experience from start to finish. Not only did he suggested some beautiful locations, providing a magical backdrop for our photos, but he timed the shoot in each location for exactly the right hour of the day to provide the best type of lighting. He is both a consummate professional and a fun person to work with. He knew just how to put us at ease, allowing for lots of “practice” shots , and giving us clear instructions for positioning that would show up well in the images. The process was easy, the day flowed well, and we had a lot of fun! And the resulting photographs are incredible! Mark produced edited proofs very quickly after the photoshoot and we are extremely happy with the results. We highly recommend Mark and Get the Shot Studios and are looking forward to working with him again.“
“We had the opportunity to work with Mark for our wedding in the summer. Him and his partner were amazing to work with. They were extremely patient, had a clear vision, and the results were incredible! We had a tonne of compliments on our photos and how professional they were during the ceremony and reception. Would highly recommend him.“
“Got Mark to do my corporate head shots at his new studio. It was a lot of fun working with him. This guy has a wealth of knowledge and talent. Great to hire someone that has a passion for their craft.“
