About

Dave ScougalWhy ‘Right Light Photography’?
The word ‘photography’ means writing with light. We believe that great lighting is the basis of great images. Then we add story telling, emotion and interest to make images with IMPACT!

People want to be people, not props.
Stiff poses and awkward positions in an old fashioned idea of what’s ‘right’ don’t make for realistic images. Careful consideration of design, body language, body structure, facial analysis, expression and attitude are just part of the creation of images which provoke thought, emotion and action.

Owner of Right Light Photography, Ltd., Dave specializes in ‘people’ photography and is well known for his ability to tell stories with photographs. Before starting this business, he was the staff photographer with MacGregor Studios for 8 years. He has been a working photographer since the mid 70′s. By combining his skills in product, landscape and industrial imaging with his knack for bringing out the personality of his subjects, he creates classic and contemporary images with impact, emotion and humour.

Dave holds the degree of Master of Photographic Arts from the Professional Photographers of Canada  and is a Dean’s List graduate of the Professional Photo-Imaging Program at Langara College and is now an instructor at the College. He continues to study with some of the finest photographers in North America on a regular basis. An active member of the Professional Photographers of Canada, and British Columbia, Dave has won the Fuji Masterpiece Award in the Portrait category as well as Best Editorial photo nationally and Best Child Portrait provincially. He is Nationally Accredited in Portraiture, Location Executive Portrait, Wedding Story and Wedding Portrait.
