Clinton Hussey Photography Vancouver advertising photographers

Clinton Hussey is an award-winning commercial photographer specialising in conceptual, food, still-life photography and, recently, motion. Since 1995, he has been creating distinctive editorial and advertising imagery for brand and magazine clients in his hometown of Vancouver and abroad.

Originally a design student at Vancouver’s Emily Carr College of Art & Design, Clinton stumbled into photography at first accidentally and then with conviction as he fell for its demanding mix of creativity and technical grasp — an intense relationship he recognised from watching his father, a musician, repairing his instruments with surgical skill. Though not a musician himself, Clinton has earned both Grammy and Juno nominations for his album cover designs; his photography has won multiple National Magazine Awards, as well honours from Lotus, Applied Arts, D&AD, City & Regional Magazine Association, the Printing Industry of America, Communication Arts, PDN/Nikon, and many others.

Today, Clinton is expanding into video, creating ad campaigns for clients such as Method, Panago, and the Children of the Street Society. When he’s not making pictures, he’s building things and spending time on the ocean and in the mountains with his wife, Amanda — also a photographer — and their two children.

Alastair Bird Photography Vancouver advertising photographers

Alastair Bird was born and raised in Vancouver on the West Coast of Canada. His parents bought him a camera for Christmas when he was a young boy and he hasn’t looked back since.  

In the ensuing years, Alastair has built up a considerable roster of clients including Air Canada, Vancity, BC Hydro, BC Ferries, and Telus, among others. He has also been recognized for his photography in Applied Arts, The Lotus Awards as well as other awards.

Although he is fully comfortable with digital imaging, Alastair loves to shoot film. From his grandfather’s Leica to an old large-format camera he received from a friend, Alastair shoots as much film as he can, but generally only for personal work. He finds the slow pace of film is a great counter-point to the immediacy of digital imaging.

When he isn’t in the studio, Alastair spends as much time as he can in the mountains surrounding Vancouver, with his wife and his two daughters - his muses - who both factor greatly in his work.
