Founded in 1997, byfield-pitman is one of Ottawa's longest running photography companies. Our photographs are typically very candid and our work is best characterized by the sense of narrative that's often present in our pictures. Whether it's the emotion captured in a 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 convey in our portraits, the common thread in our work is how at ease people look in front of our camera. 

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. Lead photographer, Ben Welland, is a full-time professional photographer, and is the owner of byfield-pitman photography.
