Photography Services


Are you looking for a photographer to photograph your main events, showcase your products or services or have your portrait taken? You are at the right place.

The Way I See It

Food you taste, events you experience, everyday items become exotic, a person reveals an inner spirit—those are the sensations I create in a photograph. My secret is to photograph in the subject’s natural environment, like the home or workplace. The result is an image that’s inherently exciting and that expresses the desired message.

My name is Ima Ortega of Ottawa, and My Business Is to Show You Off.

The Philosophy, The Result

I believe that the environment in photography has to be part of the surrounding culture and its design elements such as shapes, patterns, colour contrasts, ornamentation, and even sounds and tastes and lighting. To incorporate those cultural design elements into an image, I take my camera to the natural environment of whatever it is I’m photographing. I create an image that’s surrounded by its natural inspiration.

The Process

Finding a photographer, who will capture you, is essential. You will trust your photographer to capture you in a moment that envisions you perfectly! Your experience begins with a 30-minute telephone consultation during which you will have the opportunity to outline what you are looking for and provide some detail on your background and preferences. After meeting personally we'll have a more detail conversation about the message you are trying to convey. Once the concept is clear we will proceed with the photo shoot. After a week, I will contact you and your images will be uploaded to a site where you will be able to see them. During this photo selection meeting, I will guide you on how to create the perfect photo collection for either personal or business use. The photo shoot generally lasts between 1.5 and 2 hours but I will never rush your photo shoot, I am happy to hold the session on location in an environment that is familiar to you to ensure you are comfortable, feel natural and have fun.

My Invitation

For the best results in a photo, I want to have a positive and creative relationship with you so I can determine how to best recreate your subject, not only technically, but also artistically. I offer a free, no-obligation, 30-minute consultation. Let’s talk. I look forward to speaking with you about your session today.
