Don Cooper – Self-Portrait (Tethered)

Hello, my name is Don Cooper, the photographer at Overbrook Studio. I do commercial work and have been in business full-time since 1990. My earliest work was done for the Toronto Historical Board (as it was named at the time) which involved shooting interiors for their various museums. The work was used for print brochures and postcards. Another early and steady client was the University of Toronto Bookstores for whom I shot print ads for placement in U of T Magazine and other print collateral.

Along the way I became involved in shooting quite a bit of sportswear for various companies, both with models and “off-figure.” I have worked with top model agencies and stylists and businesses large and small in this area of fashion.

I have experience shooting interiors, exteriors, people and a wide variety of products. In my spare time I enjoy shooting the beauty of nature, walking and playing golf.

At Overbrook Studio great care is taken to get accurate colour for print and the web. This involves professional computer monitor calibration, flash equipment custom colour profiling and an all white home-based studio. We deliver via Dropbox.
