Scott Murdoch • Photographer
Hi, I’m Scott, a Toronto-based freelance photographer. Of all the ingredients that go into a photoshoot, there’s one that’s most important: helping a subject to feel comfortable in front of the camera. My genuine enthusiasm for photography and being a people-person make this my daily ambition; it's what I'm best at. Whether it's one-on-one or for a corporation, connecting with people and creating authentic images is what motivates me.
“My firm has hired Scott on numerous occasions for corporate photography and I can’t recommend him enough. He has done a great job tackling a wide variety of tasks including headshots, group photos, casual shots, event photography and office space shots. Scott’s work is impeccable and he has a great knack for capturing his subjects perfectly. More importantly, Scott is an absolute pleasure to work with and he’s got a great lens-side manner. He’s great at putting people at ease in front of the camera and he makes the process very enjoyable. I wouldn’t hesitate for a second to hire Scott again.”
- Mike Murray, Managing Partner, Peleton Capital Management
“Scott was a pleasure to work with! Knowing that George Brown College has strict brand guidelines, Scott strives to ensure he meets your corporate branding needs. Most importantly, Scott is receptive to feedback and adjustments along the way. He is punctual and comes prepared to every shoot.”
- Cindy Tran, Marketing Manager, George Brown College
“I run a design studio that focuses mainly on corporate branding. A huge part of my client base often requires professional photographs to compliment their new branding. If we don’t have great photos it — doesn’t matter how good my branding looks. I wouldn’t recommend anyone to my clients that wouldn’t manage them with the same level of care and enthusiasm I would. Over the years, Scott has become my go-to for all my clients. I always know they will be happy with the level of service and professionalism Scott brings to his shoots. Making someone feel comfortable in front of the camera is super important. Scott does this in aces. He’s got a special talent in knocking down those barriers to make everyone feel great. In the end always capturing the best, most professional photos my clients can be proud of. As a result, making my job much easier and enjoyable when we put it all together.”
- Marlo Biasutti RGD, Creative Director & Graphic Designer
"Getting my headshots done with Scott was as relaxed and fun as hanging out in the park for the afternoon with a good buddy (who was also a consummate professional) even though we had just met in person that day. I think that's the reason that I felt so pleased with the end result- my favourite headshots ever! Thank you Scott!"
- Kirstin Hinton, Actor

From the point of enquiry until operational on the day, Scott Murdoch showed the utmost professionalism in providing a high quality service to our Long Term Care client The Rekai Centres. Scott has such a relaxed and friendly manner, all the while taking amazing shots that our client was really pleased with.
He is able to capture candid moments that show emotion and love which I feel is one of the special aspects to his photography.

Very detail orientated, works well in high fast paced environments and supersedes expectations when it comes to punctuality and turn around time on images.
