The Jérôme Advantage
Welcome to Jerome Photographer, an award winning photography studio in Ottawa, Ontario.
For over 20 years I have been perfecting my skills in the art of photography. With over a thousand assignments under my belt, here in Ottawa and around the world, I have invaluable experience and expertise that I can bring to your photography session. My work has been featured in several Canadian and international publications for its editorial value. It has been exhibited by galleries in New York, Montreal, Dominican Republic and Collioure in France. I received my first photography award at the age of 20.
I also have a passion for art history, and draw much inspiration from innovative artists and the best pioneering photographers, which I put to use in your projects. As Picasso famously said, “Good artists copy, great artists steal.”
I pride myself on always ensuring my clients are satisfied with their images, and that their experience with me is a positive one from start to finish, and hopefully beyond. Although my approach is relaxed and easygoing, I come to every session well-prepared, and will not be shy to direct you and/or your group when necessary to ensure a beautiful image. “Direction” in my books does not solely mean traditional posing! When you revisit those photographs years later, the experience you had while having them taken will always colour your perception of them; therefore, I endeavour to make the session creative and fun for both photographer and client. Don’t take my word for it – visit my website and decide for yourself.
"As chair for Ottawa’s Ovarian Cancer Canada Walk of Hope, I would like to thank Jerome Scullino for his support for the walk. Despite his busy schedule, he offered his personal services as the onsite event photographer and has provided us with a beautiful visual record of the day. Jerome’s sensitivity to the wishes of the participants, his eye for special moments, and his artistry with the camera resulted in photographs which celebrate what for us is a very special morning. He and his ‘special assistant’ were there for early setup and stayed until the speeches ended and we started packing up. He caught little ones in the KidZone, special guest participants, amazing teams and individual walkers, prize winners, and the hard working volunteers – all of the pieces which together make the day for us. All of this was done quietly and unobtrusively, a feat almost impossible at times but one he pulled off. The result is not only a story of the day, but also some great individual photos which I have used to thank members of my organizing team who were captured in them."
