This image is called Political Glow and it sure gets our attention. You should know that night images get more attention every time. I’ve gathered some after dinner images of the buildings on Parliament Hill.

Standing on Parliament Hill with 100,000 people and seeing the Canadian Snowbirds fly over the Peace Tower is a special moment in my life. The sound of those jets alone wakes you up!

It was fantastic.

I’m a proud Canadian.

Four Seasons on Parliament Hill

Finding season-specific Parliament Photos

Update – March 2017

Why are photos of Parliament mostly summer shots? What about the other seasons?

Winter Parliament photo by Michel Loiselle

The Canadian Parliament stock photo collection by Michel Loiselle includes images of all seasons to help Designers better communicate season-specific projects. This winter image, Path to Politics is also an evening shot making it that much more enjoyable.

Autumn Parliament photo by Michel Loiselle

Consider this image, October Politics and how it gives a new feeling to the subject. It’s alive with color and truly inviting. Graphic Designers can get at least one photo of each season to help with specific campaigns.

Spring Parliament photo by Michel Loiselle

This Spring Parliament photo certainly says spring with pride and energy. See how CERC has used the image for an online magazine article.

Ensuring that all seasons are included in the Canadian Parliament portfolio makes the collection more valuable to clients.

The fact that this image is on an angle also helps attract attention to your story and get your message across more readily.

Keeping the Designer in mind when creating images is important. Clients want choice.

The Political Glow image below certainly says summer with attitude! It’s a great image to have when you really need to say CANADA in your message.

Ghost Photographer

CERC Annual Conference 2012 - Canadian Parliament photo by Michel LoiselleUpdate – March 2018

Stock Photography – The story of one photo

Canadian Parliament photos by Michel LoiselleIt all started with this image. I license images to graphic designers at communications firms, advertising agencies and publishing houses. Those who purchase it usually do so for their clients needing a Web site, brochure, cover page or newsletter. The client may have requested a very “Canadian feel” for the piece and the designer found my Spring Politics photo on a stock photo site such as Shutterstock.com. In fact, most clients never know that I’m the photographer for their project. To them, it’s just (ghost) stock photography. Who takes the photo is not as important as getting the right image. So how do I know where my stock photos are on the web?

Reverse Search and Finding the Image

I don’t always know who’s using my photos so I call on Google Images. It works by uploading your actual photo in the search box and letting Google find it for you on the web. I call it “Reverse Search”, instead of entering keywords, you enter an image. That’s how I discovered the CERC Annual Conference e-mag article – Targeting talentism. Canadian Parliament photos by Michel Loiselle

When I saw how they used and designed around my photo, I was glad… “this looks great”, the look is clean, tasteful right down to the use of fonts. When taking this photo, I knew that designers would have fun with this area, making the image a good candidate for a cover page.

So one more photo has gone full circle. I’ve created the image, published it to stock agencies and in the Canadian Parliament collection, then licensed it. I found the client with reverse search, and now can appreciate how it’s being used. It’s fun to see how other images turn out! As a stock photographer, it is very humbling to see the designers of CERC do such a great job with the photo. We always hope for this kind of turnout for our images and I get a good feeling when it happens to me, I feel good about what I do.
