Calgary-based portrait, industrial, and fashion photographer Gerard Yunker loves to push the limits with his photography. Often shooting for energy companies, Yunker enjoys the thrill of working in extreme conditions, whether out at sea or up at the top of a wind turbine, he loves the challenge of technically executing his creative vision in an extreme environment.
With an impressively diverse body of work that includes corporate, industrial, travel, fashion, and portraiture, Gerard maintains his signature aesthetic throughout his work. When working on a big job, Gerard loves the collaborative process of working with art directors. There’s nothing he prefers more than a challenging job that requires him to think creatively in order to arrive at the visual goal of the project.
Being someone who is naturally curious about the world and always looking to learn and grow, Gerard regularly creates personal work that allows him to explore his newfound interests. Recently, he has created a Canadian surfer series where he photographed some of Canada’s top surfers in their extreme environment of frigid waters. He’s currently found sponsorship for his work visa in the US and is pivoting his focus to build his client list in the States.
