Alberta Portrait is a professional portrait studio in Calgary – and yes, I could have saved a lot of money by doing out of my home like so many photographers these days. Why go to the extra expense of doing photography in a professional space?
I have talked to so many photographers who have to deal with limitations like an 8 foot ceiling (and they are very jealous of my 12 foot ceiling.)
I also have a space that a person who has trouble with stairs, or someone in a wheelchair can actually get into.
I have a space for people to relax, a space for people to get changed, a space for people to view their photos in confortable chairs, AND a space where we can do the photography. They are not all the same room.
Unless a basement is fully finished with insulation and drywall, decently painted and decorated, do you really ‘like’ hanging around in a basement? I don’t.
As well, my studio is centrally located near downtown in the Mission and Beltline area – easy to get to from all parts of Calgary.
And finally, I am a professional – why would I want anything other than a professional space?
Now I don’t want to infer that photographers using their spare bedroom or basement are not good photographers – they well may be fantastic photographers. However many of the beginning photographers do seem to be among those who work out of their own homes – offering ‘cheap’ photography. Unfortunately, cheap photography ‘looks’ cheap.
If you’re considering having a family portrait or personal portrait – I would suggest you arrange a time just to come down and talk with me at my studio, see samples of what I do and we can talk about what you are looking for.
I love to create portraits which work not only as a record of your history, but also as fine art decor for your home which you’ll treasure today, and will be loved for generations to come.
Call me (Neil) at 403-457-5031 to arrange a consultation – there’s no obligation and I can answer all of your questions, and most importantly – we can see if you and I are a good fit to create the kind of portraits you will love.
