Northern shooters have a passion for nature, wildlife and the northern lights

In March of 2017, Northern Exposures Photography began after capturing images of Elliot Lake's Got Talent. This helped business boom and the photographers picked up a gig shooting The Easter Egg Hunt at the Renaissance Senior's Centre. They were also on deck to shoot images for Elliot Lake Secondary School's senior prom.

The business consists of two photographers – Rainy Lalonde and Richard Boose. 

"Aside from our passion for nature photography, wildlife and northern lights shots that have been shared widely locally, we jumped into the family portrait business," said Boose. "After a slow start in portraits, we aggressively launched a huge advertising campaign expanding our brand from Sudbury to Sault Ste. Marie."

With unbeatable prices starting at $5 a photo instead of the package and bundle deals most photographers offer, they are able to offer more photos to fit the budget needs of their clients. This process is what they call "Portfolio Building Campaign." This program has no expiration date as of yet.

"We have received plenty of positive feedback from our work as we strive to produce top notch results in our digital photos using programs such as Adobe Lightroom, Adobe Photoshop and and Photokey 8 in our post-production," he explained. "We have been showcased in almost every issue of The Quill since last spring and have been hired by Metroland Media Group as a freelancer to photograph for their follow-up story in their 5.6 million circulation of local papers across all major cities in southern Ontario."

In just six months, their Facebook page has gained over 500 followers after entering the market. 

"We are a two-man photography team ready for any type of photography work a client may require."
