Crafting Commercial Photography For Business

About Gilmour Commercial Photography

Gilmour Commercial Photography breathes life into your brand through powerful storytelling. We’re your creative partners, transforming products, services, and people into captivating visuals that resonate with your target audience. We collaborate with businesses, marketing departments, and advertising agencies to develop a visual language that supports and enhances your brand.

Our Story

Working as an adventure sports photographer our founder, Brett Gilmour, noticed that businesses had a constant need for fresh photography to show consumers their newest services, products and experiences. As digital media grew, the need for professional photography grew with it.

There were plenty of photographers but very few with the unique skills required to create studio quality photography on-location at an industrial site one day, and in a corporate boardroom the next day.

Gilmour Commercial Photography was founded in Calgary, Alberta, with the idea of leveraging Brett Gilmour’s unique photography skills to create visuals for business that need corporate, industrial and architectural photography. We’ve become a trusted photo studio, serving clients across Canada and beyond, leaving a trail of impactful imagery and happy customers.

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 gear and we can supply our own safety equipment for working at heights.

Our Mission

Our mission is partnering with companies in their pursuit of success by producing photography that becomes a lasting symbol of their brand and culture.

We believe that commercial photography has the power to inspire and influence, enabling brands to ignite emotions, forge connections, and drive real results. We strive to consistently deliver iconic imagery that leaves a lasting impact.

Creativity, collaboration, and excellence are our guiding principles.
