Who is André Van Vugt?
André knows when he’s got the perfect shot. For more than 25 years, Andrė has been behind the lens, making people and food look their best. Whether he’s shooting NHL star Alexander Ovechkin for a Mr. Big wrapper, a group of accountants for a website or chocolate cupcakes for Give and Go, André believes good photography is a combination of art and great technique.
With a knack for making his clients feel relaxed, Andrė actually makes picture taking fun – capturing the essence of what makes each person unique. Sometimes he can capture it in as little as 5 minutes. He also enjoys the challenge of food photography – the complexities of lighting and composition.
Having ebuilt a reputation for outstanding client service, Andre has built an impressive client roster including Lipton, KPMG, Ontario College of Teachers, Ocean Jewel, Apotex, Cadbury, Chartered Professional Accountants of Ontario and Two Bites. His photography has appeared in advertising, promotional, corporate, web and editorial materials across Canada. Andrė says the best part of his job is the people he meets – and all the leftover cupcakes!
