Celebrating 25 Years
A few weeks after my first child was born, I signed the lease to our first studio location in the Hudson’s Bay warehouse in Inglewood. Three recessions, four more studios, and 25 years later… Ridgerock Studios has grown into a team of creatives driven to share and showcase the essence of businesses in Southern Alberta and beyond.
We’re so proud to have been a part of so many people’s entrepreneurial journeys throughout the years, and would like to celebrate with you by offering 25% off to the first five appointments booked with Ridgerock Studios.

& Commercial Work
You want people to buy what you’re selling, right? Product photography is an essential part of marketing and advertising. It’s the perfect way to show off your product in the best light, highlighting all its features and benefits. Whether it’s high-end fashion or household goods, our photographers will make sure that every detail of your product is captured beautifully and have customers excited about coming back to you again and again.
& Their Work
We love our studio, but sometimes things like construction equipment or oil and gas don’t fit into our space. That’s where the studio has to pick up roots and get outside! Being able to pack up and go is a luxury we don’t take for granted. You get to experience the true vibe and see something engage with others and their environment. Passion always follows either in front or behind the lens and that always results in perfection!
For food companies that want to engage consumers in their brand, cookbooks have become a way to use their products and show how versatile they can be. Recipes with pictures now develop food products as staples in the kitchen drive loyalty and advocacy.

We were looking for a food photographer in Alberta to bring our company's images to a next level. Todd and his team just went above and beyond our expectations, in regards to food imagery for our product labels, life style pictures for our website, taken in his state-of-the art studios, and also images of products yet to be launched to market (prototypes). We can't express how satisfied we are to have added Ridgerock Studios to our service providers portfolio, definitely a game changer asset! Looking forward to putting the next ideas into photos, guys! Cheers!

I trust Todd with my most important projects.
We have worked together styling and shooting a wide variety of food projects.
Todd brings a level of professionalism that only someone with his years of experience can achieve. He is adaptable, easy to work with and capable of executing any vision.
His massive studio and fully operational kitchen has everything needed to shoot perfect food shots.
I have worked as a food stylist with Todd on a wide variety of projects for different clients. But when it came to shooting my own cookbook project, I knew I could only trust one person to execute the extensive task to the high standard I set for the cookbook.

My long-time photographer has asked me to provide a reference to which I am more than happy to do. I have worked with Todd Patterson on multiple projects since 1996.
I met Todd when he was pioneering digital photography here in Calgary. He has over the years supplied us with literally 1000’s of high-quality photographs, on time and budget. Todd always properly completed the gig and I know that he went above and beyond on many of my projects. Rest assured you will get what you are looking for in your photography whether that is style or content or both. Todd has several skills that often are not appreciated in lighting, colour and composition. As a television director for over 20 years, I can say he has high proficiency. Recently, I contracted him to do an excessive number of photographs in a short period during the covid pandemic. Not only did he agree to do it in a highly undesirable situation, but he also did an amazing job at it. I’m sure whatever needs you have Todd can deliver.
