Why are images so powerful?

Photographs emulate the way our mind freezes a moment and the emotional connection we had during that moment. Time changes things and our fickle minds can forget how things were yesterday. The only way we can record what time has forgotten is to take a picture and look back to see how things were. Powerful imagery is the goal of Graham McKerrell Photography.

Graham McKerrell is a Commercial photographer offering action sport, architectural, event and head shot photography services. His passion for photography and the outdoors comes through in everything that he captures, whether its action sports, active life style, environmental portraits or commercial shoots. His technical skills, matched with vibrant energy and creative intuition, enable him to create stunning visual images. The most important asset of Graham McKerrell Photography is the one hundred percent commitment to the creation of powerful, timeless images. Revealing beauty in all of its forms is of the utmost importance and is the key driving force to this lifetime commitment to the photographic arts. Graham strongly believes that discovering exactly what the client aspires to gain from a photo shoot is extremely important. Making sure that both client and photographer are on the same page is a very crucial element to a successful photo shoot. 

"Photography is not merely a source of income for me; it’s my life's passion. I continually obsess over photos, daydream about upcoming sessions, and play out new photographic techniques all day, every day." 


When searching for a photographer, budget is often a very strong determining factor for many clients. However, this shouldn’t be your only consideration. Look at the photographer’s portfolio, ask and check for references and meet with the photographer. If you like their work and their references liked their work, AND you like the photographer then you will know that you found someone capable of capturing the powerful and timeless imagery that you are searching for. Because every photography session is different (and they should be) you are encouraged to contact us and we will be happy to provide you with an estimate that is tailored for the type of photography session you envision with your budget in mind.


High School Senior Photoshoot

We have had the opportunity to work with Graham a number of times with both personal and professional photos. Each experience has been amazing and the finished products exactly what we were looking for. Our son’s high school graduation was particularly special as we wanted to capture this moment beyond the regular cap and gown pictures. Graham was able to execute our vision (with many ideas of his own), the perfect venue and candidness we were looking for. It truly depicted the place in time in a fun, interactive way!

Commercial Shoot for Prodesign Inc

Graham was absolutely wonderful to work with. When we contacted him about doing some pictures for our company he was professional, knowledgeable and easy going. He spent an entire day driving around central Alberta taking pictures of different buildings so that we can update our website. Not only was working with him a blast, our pictures turned out stunning. Graham really exceeded our expectations. We will definitely be working with him again in the future.
