We are a Full Service Photography Business
Ranked as one of the most livable cities in North America, Calgary is widely considered the crown jewel of Alberta and the gateway to the Canadian Rockies. It offers an excellent quality of life, low tax rates, and memorable outdoors experiences, which – when combined with its abundance of shopping opportunities, dining, and nightlife – makes the City of Calgary a wonderful destination to wander in wonder.
Calgary’s award-winning architecture plays a significant role in its progression towards becoming a world-class city. From the sweeping curves of the Calgary Central Library to the towering nature of the Calgary Tower; the diagrid of steel woven into the façade of the Bow office tower to the elliptical vessel shape of the 707 Fifth office building, architects are thinking outside the box of 21st century design – offering plenty to be captured in this Western metropolis.

What we do
Calgary is filled with many great buildings that we are so thankful to be able to photograph. Below are the different Calgary architectural photography services that we offer.
Retail Store Interiors
When we photograph retail interiors, attention to detail is paramount. There are many lighting considerations to be made when it comes to photographing store interiors. We will meet every challenge head-on and ensure that the space is properly lit to showcase your store and products.
Applying an understanding of composition, we will create photographs that provide a glimpse inside the retail space without appearing too cluttered or busy. Photographs that make your clients want to visit instead of never visiting in the first place.
Industrial Buildings & Warehouses
Photographing industrial buildings, warehouses, and manufacturing facilities presents many unique challenges. These structures are often large and boxy, with many large windows.
We have the skills and experience to meet these challenges. We pride ourselves on creating aesthetically pleasing photographs that capture the imagination of the viewer and encourage them see beyond the bricks and mortar.
This photograph of the Earth Fresh produce company’s facility demonstrates the use of leading lines, and the natural environment to add visual interest. The angle of the photograph helps to avoid flattening the building and bring out its texture. The natural beauty of the surroundings complement the architecture, with objects in the foreground, such as plants and trees, resulting in drawing the eye in.
Large Buildings & Skyscrapers
Large buildings have an imposing quality. They inspire awe in their onlookers. This is something we want to convey in the images we create. We have the skill and architectural photography experience required to capture large structures in their entirety, and ensure that there is no distortion of architectural features or converging vertical lines.
Stand Alone Stores & Restaurants
When photographing a store or restaurant, it is important to study the structure, in order to create images that emphasize the building’s unique design characteristics. We put thought and care into the composition of our restaurant photographs.
We know that with the right lighting and angles, your business will shine. For instance, McDonald’s, with its red exteriors and bright yellow arches, stands out against the dark sky in this photograph. From this angle, the building’s architectural features lead the eye in and create visual interest.
Hotels & Hospitality
When photographing hotels, corporate event centres, and banquet halls, we go beyond the traditional vantage points, playing with angles, light, and composition to create enticing, visually appealing images.
For example, in this photo of the Hilton Garden Inn, we used the surroundings and natural lighting to set the tone and add visual interest to the photo. The lights from the cars, conveying speed and movement, are contrasted with the building, set on a pink sky backdrop, which presents the space as calm, warm and inviting.
Office Interiors & Corporate Headquarters
Office interiors can be challenging for the average person to photograph. We use lighting and top of the line equipment to make your space look its absolute best.
Each office space we photograph is unique and provides its own set of challenges. We will take the time to identify the obstacles and bring the tools to ensure the space looks its absolute best.
We can photograph your office during the day with staff or after hours when the office is empty. This way we can ensure there is little to no interruption to your daily business operations.
Retail Store Exteriors
When it comes to photographing store fronts, we want to help you make a strong first impression by creating images that pique customers’ interest and inspire them to visit in person. It is about capturing the essence of your business.
What makes your space unique? What do you want to showcase to customers? Allow us to use our skill, experience, and creative eye to produce unique, attractive images for your business.
Hotel Interiors & Restaurants
When photographing hotel and restaurant interiors, we want to create images that enhance the visual interest of these spaces and highlight their unique architectural features. It is important to present hotel and restaurant interiors as warm and welcoming, and create a sense of comfort.
We are knowledgeable and skilled in the use of lighting techniques to account for the presence of both natural and artificial lighting in one space.
How do you want customers to see your hotel or restaurant? We will ensure that your vision is reflected in the photographs.
In the example here, the approach to composition opens up the space and creates a sense of depth. Leading lines draw the eye in and upward, emphasizing the height of the ceiling, and creating a sense of splendor.

Why You Need Photography
Professional photography makes all aspects of your marketing perform the way it should. Images will make customers want to interact with your brand, as well as help them relate to your product. Most importantly, it will allow them to visualize using your product or service before making a purchasing decision. This applies just as much as a new home buyer buying a house, a customer planning on visiting a retail store or a large company choosing who the right firm is to develop their next great building project.
