Visiting Ottawa soon? I invite you to discover some inspirational photography of the Canadian Parliament.
Creating and showcasing images of our gothic heritage buildings is what this post is about. Read how shooting the Hill year-round, day or night for 7 years can grow a photo collection. See the different perspectives, angles and compositions this institution is capable of displaying. Read my post 7 Year Parliament Project to find out more.
Creatives are searching Stock Photo Agencies for the perfect shot. Making images for the design community is challenging. You must consider copy space, landscape and portrait orientations, rule of thirds, composition, focus, etc. We’re seeing more collaboration between the photo and design communities. Read my blog post “Designers and Photographers – Working Together” to get a feel for how images are created while keeping the designer and reader in mind.
Even though I’ve worked on Parliament Hill for 25 years and have been shooting the architecture since 2006, I’m still in awe. And when I see my photos used in official Canadian documents, reports and Web sites, the pride continues.
The Parliament is recognized by people around the world and represents Freedom, National Unity and Free Speech to many. Read my blog and see how this image-maker does it.

Considering we’re all designing some type of communication like newsletters, communiqués, reports, presentations, blogs etc., read an idea that may help you choose the right photo for your Canadian document. A business project could go like this: We need an image that speaks loud but professionally. It should accommodate a title and other smaller text. And finally, it must portray Canada in a positive light.
Finding the Right Image
The image above, Political Glow fits the bill as it’s very striking and has room for title and text. Also, anyone, anywhere in Canada will relate to the architecture and sense of pride, making it ideal. I’ve added the PARLIAMENT – PART OF OUR HERITAGE title to show how text and photo work well together. The landscape orientation is ideal for PowerPoint presentations. Don’t forget to use color to emphasize your point. Here, the IAM ART gold color is perfect as it’s matched to the building. The Parliament photo collection also includes a “Portrait” version of the image for those who are creating letter-size portrait formats.
I hope you’ve enjoyed reading about photos for reports and encourage you to put it to use. Have a look at the 250+ collection of Canadian Parliament photos.
