Fine art portrait studio " Harder Photography "

Harder Photography has two portrait photography studios. The Muskoka photo studio, situated between Port Carling and Bracebridge, serves the Muskoka and Georgian Bay area. The second studio south of Barrie, one exit in the direction of Newmarket serves the Barrie, Newmarket and Toronto area.

Gerd is a fourth generation commercial, nature and portrait photographer. He also is an international award winning portrait professional offering the experience of over three decades of professionalism and creativity in the Barrie, Muskoka and greater Toronto area. While Gerd has many interests in the arts and in photography this site is dedicated to an area where he will be concentrating on in the years to come: Professional Muskoka outdoor family portraits and children photography taken on location near Bracebridge, Port Carling, Gravenhurst, Huntsville or elsewhere in the Muskoka and Georgian Bay area.

With all the beauty which Muskoka has to offer not surprisingly family portraits are often taken in and around cottages. As an alternative to a studio portrait Gerd enjoys working outdoors in natural surroundings that capture the essence of his clients’ habitats. They love spending their time here and enjoy taking this souvenir captured in their family portrait with them to their main residence down south.

The expertise in photography and in digital enhancement as well as the desire for perfection which has earned Gerd many prices and recognition will benefit your images to stand out from any ordinary portrait photography.

The studio Harder Photography is located one exit south of Barrie in the direction of Newmarket and Toronto. Besides the Barrie, Alliston, Bradford and Newmarket area it is serving the the entire Greater Toronto area and with its second studio between Bracebridge and Port Carling the Muskoka area.
