Develop Negative is a multimedia company specializing in portraits, wedding/engagement, music and sport photography owned and operated by Brennan Schnell. I’m based out of Ottawa, Ontario where I began my photography career and photographed numerous events such as local weddings, concerts and sporting events across Canada.

I’ve gained recognition across Ottawa for my published work as well as for my long and growing list of photography services that I’ve secured under my belt due to over 7 years of experience in the field.
My versatile eye for photography has allowed me to shoot everything from baby portraits to hundreds of performing musical acts and artists at such music festivals as Bluesfest, Osheaga, Folk Fest, Bonaroo, Warped Tour, Taste of Chaos, and WestFest. He has had the pleasure of shooting such musical acts as Red Hot Chili Peppers, Goyte, Lupe Fiasco, Blink 182, John Fogerty, Metric, City and Colour, Tom Morello, Dixie Chicks, The National, Arcade Fire, The Flaming Lips, Billy Talent, Skrillex, The Roots, Drake, Kevin Costner, Weezer, and OK GO among others.
My passion for photography is showcased through my ability to capture my subjects as if that is the only way they’ll be remembered, as well as to tell stories through my camera. I’m further known for my imagination, creativity and style which brings forth a raw and authentic look into the emotions of my subjects.
