Calgary Commercial Photographer, Tracy Hope
Commercial photography is something that I have slowly transitioned into. Originally I started 20 plus years ago like a lot of other people, taking family and landscape photos. The last few years have been fun as I was the official photographer for a number of Jr hockey provincial championships as well as Lacrosse Midget nationals and of course the Minto cup the last 3 times it was held in Calgary. While I was doing this I was also working in the oil and gas world managing projects. This resulted in a lot of field time and I saw a direct need for good photos and video work to properly define what was currently in the field. Also when looking for vendors often they had what we were looking for but the product were not clearly defined, so they were passed over. In a number of cases the products they were offering were exactly what we were looking for.
The last 3 years I have been working with companies to help them with good photography to properly show what they are offering. Getting photos done is often a forgotten list item. It can be your silent salesman to pre-qualify the potential clients so you are getting only calls from clients that meet your product conditions. This will result in time spent on more productive quotes and conversations which helps the bottom line.
We are able to take a range of product photos from things as small as a quarter to buildings, interior photos and exterior architecture photos. With our green screen capabilities we can create composite photos to better reflect your product or environmental portraits.
Portraits have become almost a requirement as people like to know who they are talking to. When photographing portraits we have background options including a green screen to meet your vision.
As with everything these days, time is money so we can re-size the photos to meet the final product requirements to reduce time needed to put them on your website, or sites like Linkedin and Facebook. This will allow you to just insert photos and not have to worry about the social media platform distorting the photos when you load them.
Advertising on Social Media platforms is quite popular these days and is a cost effective way to keep people aware of your products and any updates you may have. I have experience in this area and can offer assistance if required.

Portraits with traditional backgrounds, on location studio photography
This is the standard type of portraits that we can provide. There is options for the background as shown, the white and black background. But we can change it up to fit you situation, such as a wall in your office or board room that has been used before. We are just showing the white and black backgrounds but if you have a specific background to match existing portraits we can do that too! This is just a couple that I have taken, but we can match most existing portraits to make the new ones seamlessly match in with the existing ones.
This type of portrait is typically done on location, which can be used to add another element to the photo. One option we can offer is to take the portraits in your office on a green screen and put in the background as required. This gives a lot of flexibility and options for a few different backgrounds as the situation requires.
We have the ability to photograph almost any size of products. With a little work up front to decide on what you want for a background we can set up a custom studio and photograph your products in an assembly line fashion. This will ensure consistency, cost effectiveness and repeatability.
With the intended destination in mind we can ensure that the photos will fit seamlessly into your work flow. For example if your advertising is going to be over the photo, we will leave room for the text in the photo shoot.
Architecture - interiors and exteriors
