About Us

"From small town to world recognition"

Northern Exposures Photography is owned and operated by Richard Boose and his wife Andrea Boose.  Richard plays a key role having a passion for photography, graphic design, post production and marketing helping to pave the path to a well established business.  Andrea assists with social media, page management & bookings.   Together the duel has 4 children aged 2, 7, 11 & 18 giving them plenty of experience and opportunity to photograph children of various ages in helping fine tune composition skills with kids.

Children photography has become the backbone of the business since its March 2017 launch date. 


Northern Exposures Photography was founded in March of 2017 by Richard Boose and Rainy Lalonde.  By fall of 2018 Rainy Lalonde had to take a step back from the business for personal reasons.   Rainy intends to return one day when availability allows him.  

Richard Boose has participated in 100% of every single photo shoot, event, advertisement campaign, bookings and client communication.  During the first two years of business, the company kept its prices at rock bottom for the purpose of securing client trust and production experience.  This allowed the business to build a great portfolio.  Furthermore, Richard studied photography from the PROs of the world learning various tricks, tactics and editing skills to help push the business to new heights in quality.   Using new photoshop skills, Richard managed to break barriers on a world level after testing his work against some of the top photographers of the globe.   Richard can be found testing his latest portrait work in world photographer contests such as Photocrowd, Gurushots, Canadian Geographic, and Viewbug.   

Richard Boose managed to ace some of the top children and family photographers around the world in competition marking his own name repeatedly among the top widely known names.  To date, Richard has secured 13 global victories against hundreds of thousands of competing professional photographers, mostly being children and family competitions.   

Richard has had photos displayed in Belgrade Art Gallery and Berlin Art Gallery, freelanced for two different newspaper publications, provided photos for local Activity guides, city website, and a photo for the mayor of Elliot Lake's new business card.  Richard also was hired to photograph the Elliot Lake Drag Races and run a media photo booth for Village Media / Elliot Lake Today.  Social media has widely shared many of Northern Exposures scenic shots including storm shots which went viral.
