Kate Bentley

“My name is Kate Bentley.  I’m 46 years old.  I have a wonderful and supportive husband, 2 dogs and a niece and nephew that are all the love of my life.  I work in the Clinical Research industry with companies developing new therapies in cancer research and I travel alot to the US for work.   I find my job very rewarding.  This year I embarked on an adventure of a life time.  By January 2015 I had hit my heaviest weight at 274lbs.  I hated having my picture taken for years as I was always too heavy and hated how I looked.  I was always the photographer at family functions, friend’s parties and business functions so I didn’t get my picture taken.  This year in January, I made a choice to change all that so I started an extreme nutrition, weight and cardio training program.  By July 18th 2015 I had lost 100lbs, through hard work, dedication and determination and the guidance of a fantastic program designed by two of the best trainers in Canada.  This photo shoot was my celebration of a new healthier, fitter and stronger version of me.  It is a celebration of the rebirth of the fun loving, energetic and confident Kate.  Since July I have lost an additional 10lbs and have another 20lbs to go.  I know that I can do it and once again I am happy and have rediscovered my love for myself.”

Tristian Coveyduck


“Sup. I’m Tristian Coveyduck.  I am an 18 year old with a love for heavy metal and 90’s rock. Growing up as the middle child I had to find ways to entertain myself and as I got older that meant getting into a little trouble from time to time. I’ve been playing guitar for 5 years always looking for something new to play and ways to play faster and harder. Some of my favorite things to pass time are play guitar and explore around abandon houses. If you ask anyone who knows me about who I am any of them would say I’m all about the combat boots, tattoos, piercings, concert shirts, loud music, and my attitude.”   – Tristian

Amanda Vander Griendt

Photographers in Kitchener, Waterloo and Guelph.

“My name is Amanda and I am 21 years old. I was told to write something about myself but I am struggling with it because there is no one thing that defines who I am. There is no one quality or experience to define who I am. I am a complex, diverse person with high ambition for my goals in life. I might not know where I will end up, but I know what I want and I am willing to embrace every failure I have. Through failures I have become the person I am today. I did the next top model contest to kick off this new chapter in my life. As a recent college graduate and a start in a new career my life has changed dramatically over a short period time. I wanted to celebrate making it through this change by doing something special. And what is more special than getting dolled up and feeling invincible like you do at a photoshoot when it is all about you. Often we all forget sometimes that it is okay to be selfish and do something for yourself. We get caught up in what’s happening tomorrow or what’s happening 2-5 years from now and forget that we need to live each day as it comes.” –  Amanda

Alicia Skelding


“Well, I am supposed to write a paragraph about myself explaining who I am and why I decided to enter this contest. Where do I start? A few weeks ago I made the decision to try a boudoir photo shoot. I have had an interest in photography as I find it, dance and music to be the most expressive art forms in that a lot can be conveyed in a single lyric, move or photograph.


My name is Alicia. I am thirty years old, and I am a veterinarian. My spare time and particularly time to myself is incredibly limited. The boudoir shoot was something I had an interest in doing for a very long time, and it felt really great to do it just for myself. It was at that time that John mentioned to me this contest. I have a passion (and weakness) for fashion, as you can see by the dresses. This contest sounded like a great opportunity to have some fun with photography. It has never really been about winning, but more so about the experience and the final product. I have worked hard all my life to achieve the professional career that I have always wanted. In all this hard work not a lot of time has been taken for myself. As a veterinarian our obligation to our clients and family members can be so rewarding and so trying all at the same time. It is easy to forget that we need to take time to focus on ourselves. These photo shoots have given me the chance to really be myself and focus on my own interests outside of my career.” – Alicia Skelding


As you can see we are getting some amazing people entering this fun contest. Remember this contest is for EVERYONE, all shapes, sizes, ages, and gender. So what are you waiting for? Give us a call and book a crazy fun modelling session with 2014 Ontario Portrait Photographer of the Year.

Ferrin Grant


“My guitar is my baby, she’s my best friend at times. She gets me through everything good or bad. Music has captivated me from a young age and still holds me awestruck today, genre doesn’t matter I like to listen to a wide variety from Spanish rap to country, music is my passion. My name is Ferrin Grant I am 16 and attend high school in Elmira. I’ve never really been into sports or anything requiring coordination since I’m more than clumsy. Reading, running, music and songwriting now that’s me, that’s how I escape and become myself. I tried my hand at photography but never got the hang of it, it wasn’t until recently I discovered I really like being in front of the camera, thanks a million John!”  – Ferrin Grant


What an amazing way to get back from a two week vacation with my family. Ferrin, her lovely mom Tami and I, had a blast on Sunday night shooting this lovely young lady’s Next Top Model images. This was my second photo shoot with Ferrin and she totally nailed it! After spending a couple of hours with Ferrin on location, I felt that the world is in great hands in the coming years with amazing young adults like her running our country.


This Model Contest is not about “winning” or being “a model”, it is about having some fun and experiencing what it is like to be on a professional photo shoot.  We have two categories: one for 16- 29 year olds, and the second for people 30 years of age and older. So if you, or anyone you know, would like to see and feel what it is like to be on a professional photo shoot, give us a shout to book your Next Top Model Session. The contest runs until the end of September.

Kim Freeman (my wife)

Last night I had the incredible pleasure of photographing my amazing wife, Kim. It has been far too long since Kim and I went on a photo shoot together, and I wanted to give her the same experience I give my clients (well, except for taking her out for a nice dinner first). I was actually a bit nervous on this shoot, something that I never am when it comes to photography. I helped Kim, like I do all my clients, in prepping for her session and also helped her in choosing what images best represented her. Below are the four she chose….. just for the record, Kim cannot officially enter this contest, but I wanted to give her the full experience.

“As a full-time teacher, mother and partner, I don’t always have a lot of time to spend on myself. My two hours of shooting with John, and the time I took out of my day to prepare, was a great reminder of how to put myself first.  As busy women we don’t always remember that. During the shoot John coached me with the poses, made me feel relaxed in front of the camera, and I truly enjoyed every minute. Even if doing a photo shoot like this seems outside your comfort zone, I would say push through and do it. I don’t like being the spotlight, and definitely don’t consider myself a model, and I loved it!”  _ Kim Freeman

If you are interested in giving this contest a try, we have two different divisions: 16- 29 and 30+.

People should enter the contest…. not to win, but for the experience 🙂

Crys Way-White

“I’m Crys, I’m 32 years old. I have an amazing husband and two step sons I’ve been a hairstylist for 15 years and I am a business owner. At one time, I was the one hiding behind the camera. Now: I love being in front of it. I used to have body issues and low self esteem. It wasn’t until my late 20s that I learned to love me. I learned to love my flaws and embrace them. As I learned to love myself first, I could see others loved me for who I was and not who I wished I was. John, knows how to capture my beauty on the outside to match the beauty on the inside.”

– Crys Way-White


POWERFUL words Crys 🙂

So Crys is our first 30 + model to be posted with many more to come.
