About Me

Be Real - Feel Real

Positive Body Image Photography is all about maintaining photographic honesty and integrity in producing beautiful and natural images of the subjects photographed without any body image modification using tools like Photoshop. My artistic style is sexy and edgy and I tend to incorporate photographic styles from Noir and retro in my images. I like to create stories by using backdrops, models, lighting and effects that will evoke emotions that make the images beautiful and eye catching.

I am professional freelance photographer with over 35 years behind the camera lens living in Vancouver, BC. I arrange photo-shoots from time to time for the love of the art and interest in developing my portfolio.

I enjoy working with fellow artists and models on collaborative projects for mutual benefit. I have worked with many new as well as experienced models and its always a thrill to produce unique images for their portfolio.

I shoot with Canon Pro DSLR Bodies with a nice combination of professional prime, zoom and macro lenses and strobe, speedlite and continuous daylight lighting equipment which allows me to achieve very professional quality results on location or in the studio.

Instead of writing too much about myself I thought I would include a recent testimonial I received from a client that really tells you more about me than I can write on my own.

"I had the pleasure of meeting and working with a local Vancouver photographer named Ira. He does different kinds of photography but when we first started emailing he explained that a lot of his clients are woman, like me, who have lost weight and want to show it. This is what sparked my interest even further.

Its been awhile since my weight loss but I still feel like the same person I was until I see myself in a photograph. I think what Ira does is amazing he does a great job of capturing the subject. He is also extremely easy to work with. If I had been nervous the minute I met him that would have gone away.

I loved my afternoon and I love the pictures that came out of it and cant wait to work with Ira again."
