PERSPECTIVE: Hawkes Martial Arts, Part II

Last Thursday, Benjamin Luk Photography found our way to the Hawkes Martial Arts dojo to finish the project we started the week before. We took headshots of all the main instructors, shots of the classes in session, and eventually got to the point where we could play around with shooting various martial arts stances, resulting in the shot you see above. Hawkes Martial Arts asked us for 8 to 12 images for their website. We're delivering 44 final shots for them to choose from. Another example of how we love to go above and beyond for our clients.

In other news, our videographer Chuck Ibey gave us this from our shoot last Sunday! Check out his work and if you ever require the services of a videographer, get in touch. We'll pass you on to Chuck.

PERSPECTIVE: Hawkes Martial Arts

Earlier today, the Benjamin Luk Photography team was again at Iona Beach Regional Park, this time shooting for local karate school, Hawkes Martial Arts. Our aim was to completely redo and modernize their website (which is still under construction) to stay current with the times, and great looking photography is part of that process. We shot for three hours in splendid weather, going through a variety of martial arts poses and stances. This coming Thursday, we shoot for Hawkes Martial Arts again, but in their dojo, rounding out the full set of photos we need for their site.

We also had videographer Chuck Ibey on site for the very first time, capturing some behind-the-scenes footage for a series of BLP promo videos we intend to make. In the meantime, check out the video work he did for fellow photographer Cole Benoit at Chuck Ibey on Vimeo.

PERSPECTIVE: Benjamin Luk Photography Weddings

Earlier this week, it was decided that I needed an entirely separate website to showcase my wedding photography. The simple fact of the matter is that wedding clients look for wedding photographers, and my main website caters to a more commercial clientele. So, with a lot of help from Magnetude Media, Benjamin Luk Photography Weddings was born. We still operate under the name Benjamin Luk Photography; we just needed a different online presence for our wedding work.

Be sure to check out the wedding shots we have online so far at, and if you're currently in the market for a wedding photographer, be sure to get in touch at or (604) 649-5635. Personal consultations are free and coffee's always on me. I still have plenty of dates available for 2010 and 2011.
