Lethbridge Industrial Photos [Tradesman Manufacturing]

Thursday, May 28th, 2020

Southern Alberta commercial photography

Last year Tradesman MFG contacted me to update their staff photos for their website. I set up my mobile studio in their company break room and each employee was sent up for a photo, only disrupting their day by a few minutes.

Once the staff was done, I ventured out to the factory floor for industrial stock photos personalized to the work that Tradesman Manufacturing does. Donning my hardhat, I received a tour of their whole facility and was able to photograph both their products and their employees hard at work.

Lethbridge Commercial & Event Photography [Western Financial Branch Opening]

Thursday, April 30th, 2020

Lethbridge commercial photography

I was able to provide both commercial and event photography last year when Western Financial Group opened their new branch on the west side of Lethbridge. Prior to their big public opening, I visited the location to do on-site portraits of their manager and staff.

Later that month, they had a grand opening event where they invited the other branches to check out the new space. Mayor Spearman came along to help with the ribbon cutting. Their marketing person managed to track down a pair of those ridiculous over-sized scissors for the special occasion, and the scissors were a huge hit with the attendees! I floated around the event capturing candid photos of the guests, as well as a few portraits with stakeholders.

Lethbridge Accounting Staff Headshots [Shaw & Associates]

Lethbridge accounting staff headshots, Shaw & Associates

When I first planned out a photoshoot with Shaw & Associates Chartered Accountants, they had been using mismatched cell phone photos on the staff portion of their website and wanted a more cohesive, professional look. We set out downtown to update their accounting staff headshots to give the photos a natural, approachable feel. I based their wardrobe suggestions off of the colours of their website and they did a great job coordinating so many people’s outfits. Every staff member now has a matching photo on their site that compliments the design. Even Chase, their office greeter dog, got a headshot of his own for the website!

Business Branding Session [Richard from Empower Potential Coaching]

Lethbridge business branding session

I met Richard through my BNI networking group and it didn’t take long to see how much he cares about his work. Richard runs Empower Potential Coaching and his passion for helping people is obvious in everything he does. He needed a business branding session for his new website so we brainstormed the feeling he wanted to convey and worked from there!

The rain forced us to stay indoors, but the new science building at the university provided the bright, welcoming feel I had wanted to capture in Richard’s photos. We started by staging a few photos of Richard working with clients. Freeze frames of people speaking can capture a lot of awkward moments, so we did a lot of gesturing with hands without actual speaking!

Another important element in Richard’s life and the inspiration for the work he does is his family and relationship with his wife. They agreed to model for us too! I wanted to show the connection and joy they feel together, and the kids all did fantastic (thanks to some bribing and a stern talking to beforehand, according to their mom).

In between the guest appearances, we were able to get a number of headshots of Richard himself with a variety of looks. Once he put his suit on at the end and we really worked with the architecture of the building, he looked like he was transformed into a high end CEO!

Lethbridge Winter Headshot Session in the Snow [Leslie]

Tuesday, May 1st, 2018

Lethbridge winter headshot session

Leslie is happiest when it snows, so when her friend treated her to a headshot session as a Christmas gift, the timing couldn’t have been more perfect! We planned her Lethbridge winter headshot session at the very last minute (the snow was falling that night and would melt within two days) and headed over to Aperture Park on the west side with Leslie’s favourite winter coats in tow. Leslie is a talented author and a joy to be around, so I wanted to make sure her new book portraits matched her personality.

Lethbridge Winter Coulee Pet Photos [Tanya & Will]

Lethbridge winter coulee pet photos

Tanya was in need of updated professional headshot photos and her house made a great studio! She collects artwork on her travels and it added such great pops of colour in the background. By the way, doesn’t she have a great name? ;) Even her dog Will got to update his headshots while he waited for her to switch outfits.

After her headshots, we finished the session with Lethbridge winter coulee pet photos. Tanya regularly goes cross country skiing with Will. There wasn’t quite enough snow at the edge of the coulees to actually put her skis on, but we brought them along to pose with.

One sign of a good photographer is being able to photograph black pets and still have details show. I think it is an entirely new challenge to photograph a white dog in the snow! In a few spots the snow was a little deep for Will but he had so much fun bounding through the powder!
