Commercial, Lifestyle, Travel & Leisure Photographers

A little bit about us

Erika & Ryan

We met while working as photographers for a children’s portrait studio, just over a decade ago in a small suburb of Barrie, Ontario, Canada. Just 1 hour north of Toronto. Rowell Photography started as a commercial photography business, creating lifestyle imagery for magazines, businesses and professionals. It eventually grew into a love child with two brains. One for weddings and family portraiture and the other for commercial and editorial photography. You can see our wedding and family portraiture here:

We believe that your commercial portraits should reflect your style, your personality and your brand. We approach each photo shoot as a team, focusing on creating high impact imagery in collaboration with you and your wildest dreams.

We draw inspiration from art, history, literature & movies. We are often traveling the globe in search of new ways to improve our craft, meeting new people and photograph the beautiful world around us.

Our style is bright, fun and vibrant, and we are looking to work with individuals who want to breath new life into their visual brand. We can’t wait to meet you!
