Our Purpose

At Gilmour Photography we’re experts at producing commercial photography content for leading companies and entrepreneurs. We understand that you have timelines and deadlines and you probably needed the photos yesterday. That’s why we get to know the heart of your story and follow a creative and production strategy built around showing your story. Our photography process allows art directors and clients to see the photos as they are made so you are confident we have the shot. After years of producing affordable and compelling photography for ad agencies and companies we’ve learned to create photographs that powerfully convey your message and engage your audience.

Our Commercial Photography Company

From initial conversations we turn ideas into compelling commercial photography that resonates with your audience. We work with businesses, marketing departments and advertising agencies to develop a visual language that supports your brand.

Our team of producers, stylists, art directors and editors will guide you from initial concept to post-production. We can handle scouting, permits, props, wardrobe, hair, makeup, photography, Photoshop, compositing, colour grading, output and distribution. Our level of support is matched to the size and budget of your photography project. The result is memorable photography that elevates your brand.

Our shooting process allows art directors and clients to see and collaborate on the photographs as they are made. Gilmour Photography uses a colour managed photography system that accurately reproduces colour and incredible detail. You will leave the photo shoot confident that Gilmour Photography has created photographs that powerfully convey your message and engage your audience.

Whether we’re working from a helicopter or the platform of a drilling rig, we take safety seriously. Gilmour Photography is perhaps the only photography service in Alberta that carries WCB insurance for the entire commercial photography crew. Our crew has standard personal protection equipment and we can supply our own safety equipment for working at heights. Brett is Work at Height certified.
