Our Awards and Honors
Spencer Studio's 38 year history makes me proud to be one of Ottawa's oldest and most trusted portrait photography studios.
With so many photographers out there it's the national and international awards, recognitions and accreditations from our peers through professional photographers associations and professional photography competitions and also the People's Choice and Viewer's Choice awards that separate us from many of the other professional photographers in Ottawa.
While I recognize that it's my lighting and posing skills that are responsible for multiple national and international professional photography awards. Clients tell us they feel relaxed and at ease in front of our camera.
My proudest achievement is a Paul Harris Fellowship presented to me by Rotary International in recognition of my community and international service. Whether it's volunteering my photography skills to some local charities, or running portrait promotions to buy wheelchairs for the third world or to fund a well in Africa I have always felt a personal and corporate responsibility to help where I can, in my small way. Here is a list of our Awards and Honors.
