Whether he's capturing intimate moments for personal projects or the vibrant expressions of his commercial and editorial clients, the finely curated aesthetic and attention to detail that has propelled Rémi to the top of his field are always present. He is also well-versed in leading production teams on large video projects, both in Canada and in the United States. His clients include Shopify, the Government of Canada, the National Arts Centre and Billboard magazine. Rémi has never met a dad joke he didn’t like.

Senior Producer

Whitney launched her creative career as a singer-songwriter, releasing music that saw her gracing the cover of Ottawa Magazine for Best New Music, opening for Run the Jewels at Bluesfest, and playing venues across the province. Managing both the creative and business angles of her musicianship inspired Whitney to pursue a career in event planning and project management. She continues to express her creativity through Cool Whip Nails, a bespoke nail art shop in Hintonburg. Whitney is happiest bringing clients’ vision to life, while harnessing her own artistic expression and so, House of Common feels like home.

Photographer & Retoucher

Maryn Devine started at HoC back in 2017 when she was just an interning student. She has since gone on to graduate from her photography program with honours, was awarded Best Portfolio in her graduating class, and has become an emerging talent and invaluable asset to our team in Ottawa. We call Maryn our “rockstar”, not only because of her love of 70’s rock n’ roll, but also because she kicks butt.
