In 1989, at a time when the wedding and event photography industry was primarily concerned with controlled and staged portraits, John Makinson recognized photojournalism’s unique ability to capture the real moments of an event.

He set out to build a studio that would record moments as they actually happened and provide clients with a visual archive of the day’s events. Over the past 18 years, Reportage Event Photography has grown to be the largest studio of its kind in Canada.
