Geoff Wilkings Family The Canadian Rockies

Hi, I'm Geoff


As a father, I discovered what unconditional love is.
I found out what it feels like when your heart is not inside your chest anymore, but running around in two little human beings, curiously looking for trouble.

My children have grown up so fast, their personality have evolved, and you can’t help but wish for time to stop, so you can relish and remember every single details.


I can help you secure these wonderful, unscripted moments through Cinematic Films and Portraits so beautiful, you’ll want to decorate your whole house with them.

Originally I was from the fabulous city of London England, I traveled to The Canadian Rockies and fell in love with the stunning mountainous environment.

Upon returning back to the UK, I decided to head out into the big world for some travel time. After my five years of “travel time,” and with my last dollars, I decided to apply for my Canadian Residency and emigrate.

My application was approved (YAH) and called Canmore home. After ten years of living in Canmore, I am now proud to call Calgary my home. It was here I met Tammy (now my wife), and we had two boys and named them Henry and Charlie (I know sooo British)… Lol.


I’m proud to be intentional with how I photograph portraits capture families, how I show their love and dynamic. I take time to get to learn you and understand what’s important for you from this experience. I'm thrilled to be different and offer you an experience like nothing else

How It Works

step 1

Initial Phone

During our phone call conversation I learn about you and your loved ones so when it comes to your photographic experience I will know exactly what is important to you.

After all, isn't everyone unique and has a special story?

step 2


The location can be at your home, studio or somewhere that means the world to you. But, what’s important is that I capture the authentic and very special you and those you love.

Only will your photographic experience be meaningful when I’ve learned and heard about what is important to you.

step 3


During your personal Design and Ordering Consultation, it is here that you first experience your photographic experience as a cinematic presentation.

Creating your perfect Wall Art Collection to display is as unique as you for your home truly comes to life.


01. I want to book your cinematic movie coverage and also have a candid home or outdoor photographs, can I did this?

Awesome, and yes. Many clients love this experience as they get the best of both worlds. They receive a cinematic movie and purchase at the movie reveal a piece of Artwor, or a Portrait Box.

Your Portrait Box or Artwork are stunning pieces that you get to celebrate every day on your wall. Your cinematic movie is a stand-alone piece where you get to view it on any device.

02. How long does it take to receive our photographs or movie

Photographs usually are shown from you professional studio shoot, or any stand-alone shoot the same day or within three days. Much depends on your schedule as I love sharing photographs with you right away via your private cinematic experience. Your movie is prepared within three weeks, which is also shown via your person cinematic experience.

03. How much do you charge?

For products and services please view my product page. I believe in transparency and no hidden costs. At OKES Portraits, we specialize in professional photography and offer clients an extensive range of products and services. I feel confident we have the perfect product for you.

04. What takes place once we have booked your services?

We book your experience in; I learn what is important to you and those who will be part of your experience.

I will then photograph or create a movie for you, and then we move into your personal design consultation.

05. Are you available for wedding photography coverage?

Absolutely, I have a complete brand dedicated to weddings and engagement shoots. Geoff Wilkings Photography www.geoffwilkings.com (link at base of this website) was established in 2004, so I’ve been shooting professionally for many years.

06. Do you travel

Yes. If you shoot in located within Calgary city limits, there are no travel fees. If your photography or movie experience is in the Canadian Rockies, I charge a travel fee. For further afield, i.e., across North America, Europe or further afield, please connect with me, and I’d be more than happy to chat.

07. Should we wear special outfits?

Much of this depends on the experience you’d love. If it’s your home-based, you might want to capture as you are. Within a studio setting experience many of my clients enjoy having hair/makeup booked in prior and wear something special. I have fabulous recommendations for hair/makeup artists and will share those with you on request. Whichever coverage you opt with OKES Portraits we will communicate so that you feel comfortable, confident, and relaxed.

08. Can we have our shoot and movie experience in the mountains?

I emigrated to Canada from Great Britain in the year 2000 because of the stunning Canadian Rockies. I get it, and I’d be delighted to capture you, your family or love one in the Rockies. If you want a unique experience in the Rockies and depending on your budget, I have some great ideas for your photography or cinematic shoot. Connect with me today to learn more about options for your personal shoot.
