Recommended Photographers For REALTORS® Headshots and Lifestyle Shoots

We all know that first impressions matter, especially in our industry of real estate. Consumers either find you from a referral from someone they trust, or they are looking for properties. Their decision to contact you in many cases sits on if they think you look approachable and friendly. That’s where a great headshot and promotional photography comes in.

We’ve compiled a list below from recommendations from other REALTORS® who have used these Edmonton photographers for headshots and promotional images before. You may see examples of some faces you recognize on their sites!

We recommend at a minimum, that you have a professional headshot. But it’s highly recommended to have:

  1. Headshot in portrait
  2. Similar shot in landscape, with your face aligned on one side, leaving the other for adding wording or promotional edits
  3. A fun, personality shot or shots. Include your hobbies, pets, family, or what makes you, you! People want to connect with those like them, so leverage a picture says a thousand words, and tell a story they can connect with.

Alleykat Photography

Bonnie Whidden – My first love has always, and will always, be photography.

I have been a professional photographer for over 10 years, and I cannot remember a time when I was not toting a camera around in case something caught my eye. I have been happily married for 22 years and have two wonderful children, and my family often complains that I turn everything into a photoshoot – whether we are on vacation, or simply doing everyday activities close to home!

I started my business mostly as a way to support my expensive hobby, but truly enjoy providing quality photos to people in a variety of industries… and thus Aleekat Photography is still going strong, more than 10 years later!

Ryan Parker Photography

Hi there, I’m Ryan. Not only am I a professional photographer, I’m a theatre/film/television Actor. I’ve studied acting in Musical Theatre at Grant MacEwan University, I also have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting from the University of Alberta. I’ve been on screen (TV and Film) and I’ve played Off-Broadway in New York City. I picked up my first camera in 2007 while I was in University. Shooting headshots was a natural progression for me, as all my friends needed them, and I had a camera. In 2017, I was named one of Edmonton’s Top 40 Under 40 in Avenue Magazine. I’m proud to say that I was voted Edmonton’s Best Photographer in 2018 in the Vue Weekly ‘Best of Edmonton Awards’. I’ve studied the art of headshot photography in New York City under mentorship of Peter Hurley. I have the honour of being Canada’s first and only Mentor in Peter Hurley’s affiliate program ‘Headshot Crew’, where I now coach a focused group of photographers. Coaching and mentoring fellow headshot photographers has been extremely rewarding. It keeps me on my toes, it keeps my mind always on headshot photography and I’m constantly learning from my group, just as much as they are learning from me.I’m also the proudest father and husband in the world and I count myself lucky every day I get to spend with my beautiful family.

Christina Louise Photography

Sick of using an out-of-date, stiff-looking headshot that has zero personality? (Or worse… that selfie you took the last time you had a really good hair day?)

Even if your headshot is just going to sit on your LinkedIn profile or a company website, that’s no excuse to use a photo that makes you cringe. First impressions are everything, and while it may be cliché, a picture is worth a thousand words. So if you want to stand out, attract the right opportunities, and show the world you mean business, a professional headshot is where to start.
