Meet Grant

Hire me for photo-video support:

•  Event coverage

•  Real estate listings

•  Promo & training videos 

•  News media awareness training

 Hi, my name is Grant Cree, a freelance photo-video journalist and military documentary producer in Edmonton. I help clients connect with their audiences by delivering timely event imagery for social media and websites.  

I love events.  There’s something about the positive energy of a group of people coming together that makes each event I cover fresh and exciting. 

Based on my 15 years of experience in public relations and print journalism, I’m familiar with all aspects of community outreach . . . including the lively phenomenon of social media.  I understand what you’re looking for when hiring a photographer or videographer.

As a freelancer, I’ve documented numerous high-profile events and know the importance of prompt action, attention to detail, and meeting deadlines.  My education (relentless training, really) is courtesy of serving in a variety of Public Affairs teams in the Canadian Armed Forces. I've covered military events across Canada and Western Europe -- all the while meeting tight deadlines with a friendly smile.  

I currently serve part-time with the Army Reserves as a Captain specializing in Public Affairs; I've been doing that since 2003. Prior to that, I was a staff officer tasked with  organizing numerous large-scale events across Alberta.  Busy, yet fun! Co-ordinate logistics. Work with vendors. Step in when things go sideways.  I understand the importance of hiring reliable, friendly people who deliver results as promised.

You can expect photos of your important event within two business days.  Need a few pictures during the event for immediate upload to social media?  Can do!  Hire me to get timely content for your website, social media sites or company newsletter so you can carry on with your busy schedule.

As an event organizer, you live by deadlines, and so do I.  My experience as a freelance photojournalist with local newspapers* has refined my workflow to the point that I guarantee to deliver your event photos and a roving, news-style video soon after your function.  That’s my passion:  I cover events.
