Founded in 1997, byfield-pitman is one of Ottawa's longest running photography companies. Our photographs are very candid and photojournalistic, rather than being too traditional or posed looking, but our work is probably best characterized by the sense of narrative that's often present in our pictures. Whether it's the emotion captured in a candid moment shared between a couple on their wedding day, or whether it's the poised and confident, yet also warm, friendly, and approachable nature that our subjects often convey in our portraits, the common thread in our work is how at ease people look in front of our camera. 

We are Ben Welland and Colleen Johnson. We both work as full-time professional photographers, and we're co-owners of byfield-pitman photography, based in the Glebe. We photograph weddings and events with a unique photojournalist's viewpoint, and we take great pride in our ability to document the incredible people, places, and things that make Ottawa great through the work that we do with our editorial and commercial clients. We welcome you to the website of byfield-pitman photography.
