About Me

** Fashion & Glamour Portraiture services in Calgary, AB.  **

Jeff McDonald
Calgary based photographer Jeff McDonald has always loved to take pictures; however it wasn't until digital photography took off that he discovered his love of portraiture. Since 2005, Jeff has worked hard to fine-tune his photographic, lighting and digital processing knowledge and he has continually pushed himself to try new and innovative techniques that consistently exceed his client’s expectations. Over the years, Jeff has shot everything from freefall skydiving, to corporate events, family & business portraits, social media profiles as well as head shots and creative images for models & actors. His interest in working with people extends from his many years of teaching and coaching martial arts and parachuting to individuals and groups from all walks of life.

Jeff actively participates in several photo related projects via social media and has hosted numerous photo walks in and around Calgary. He is an Observer Member of the Professional Photographers of Canada and also a member of the IRIS Photographic Society of Alberta.

Rayna McDonald
Rayna enjoys participating in several creative areas at the studio. She is our primary makeup artist, hairstylist and, most recently, body painter. As well as being the visionary behind many of the elaborate designs on our models, she is also an accomplished portrait, landscape and stock photographer. Her work has been seen in the 2012 Plus One Collection and has gained her many accolades among her peers in the photographic communities she participates in.
