Collage of headshot sessions for entrepreneurs in Calgary photographed by Brett Gilmour, Gilmour Commercial Photography



Our Calgary photography studio has been providing portraits and headshots that help brands grow for more than twenty-five years. Modern marketing and social media has made it impossible to have an online presence without executive portraits and headshots. Whether the current headshots are going to help you stand out from the crowd is a different story.

Our portrait and headshot clients range from oil and gas executives to lawyers and tech entrepreneurs. At every portrait and headshot session, our goal is to deliver images that are better than a basic profile photo. We research your brand and help you target your ideal client with images that communicate who you are and what you are about.


Having excellent and compelling photographs can greatly impact your company’s performance in today’s visually driven environment. Whether you’re a corporate professional, a small business owner, or an entrepreneur, our portrait photography services offer a range of advantages that can boost your company’s success.

Professional portraits are crucial for creating your company’s identity as well as your personal branding. Professionally designed portraits convey expertise, approachability, and professionalism.

By utilizing compelling portraits that are consistent with your brand and beliefs, you’ll generate a strong visual presence, gain the audience’s trust, and forge connections that can advance your company.

An excellent headshot is a powerful weapon that opens doors and creates opportunities, not just a picture. You will be prepared to leave a lasting impression during interviews, auditions, networking events, and internet interactions thanks to our skillfully created headshots. Your headshot will serve as a potent motivator for both career and personal development.

We are aware that headshots are important for online platforms and social media accounts in addition to traditional printed documents. Whether you require headshots for your acting portfolio, personal website, or LinkedIn page, we will customize the photographs for each platform, making sure they seem alluring and polished.

A professional headshot session is an investment in your personal brand. It’s an opportunity for you to share your individual story, display your professionalism, and make an impression on everyone who sees your photograph. So why choose anything less than the best?


Let us help you capture your best self and unlock the countless possibilities that await you! Contact Gilmour Commercial Photography today to discuss your headshot photography needs.

Which Session is Right For Me?


Perfect for LinkedIn and other social media, for actors, corporate websites, and more. These sessions are head-and-shoulders only. We shoot them on a white, black, grey, or blue background to create a modern image.


More intimate than a headshot; in portrait sessions we may photograph the full body, seated, standing, 3/4, waist up, and headshots. Portrait sessions are longer and can be crafted into something more creative to show the viewer more about you.

Headshot Session & Corporate Portrait FAQ


Scheduling a session is easy—book it over the phone! Headshot sessions are by appointment only, and a phone consultation is free anytime you have questions before booking. Our schedule is typically booked 2 weeks in advance, so plan for your session!

The Session

Headshot photo sessions are designed to be fun and easy. As we shoot, we’ll review the images on a monitor with you, and by the end of the session, you’ll have a selection of favourites to choose from for your final image(s).


Wear clothes that make you feel confident and comfortable. Avoid busy patterns and stripes. Choose colours that accentuate your skin tone, and try to layer your clothing. Bring a few clothing options, including from other seasons, so you can switch up your online look. The most important thing is to be comfortable because when you feel good, you look good!

Hair and Makeup

Pro Tip: Have your hair and makeup professionally done – it’s the finishing touch that stands out in a good headshot. Our Business Headshot session includes a professional makeup application at the studio, but you are always welcome to come makeup-ready.  Quickie Headshot sessions do not include makeup. We recommend having your hair professionally done somewhere you’re familiar with and comfortable with. Men, get a haircut about a week before your session, and remember to clean your jacket and tie!

Your Files – Share and Print Anywhere

After you’ve selected your final image(s), they’ll be retouched, and you will receive high-resolution digital files and a personal and business use license for the images.  This license means you can print the images, post them online, and share them with family and friends – anytime!

Turn-around Time

The typical turnaround time is between 3-5 days. Sometimes we can rush it on the same day.

After Booking

For questions before your appointment, email us.  Please note – we require 24-hour notice for changing a session time. The client is responsible for payment of all expenses incurred up to the time of cancellation. If notice of cancellation is given less than two (2) business days before the shoot date, the Client will be charged a 100% fee. Weather postponements: Unless otherwise agreed, the Client will be charged a 100% fee if the postponement is due to weather conditions on location and a 50% fee if postponement occurs before departure to location.
