HarderLee Photography: Because Two Eyes Are Better Than One

And four eyes are even better yet! We’ve each seen a lot… and we’ve photographed even more.

Together, we’re four “eyeballs” to be reckoned with! A combined over 50 years’ experience, Brian Harder + Trudie Lee have a gigantic repertoire of images. Independent success has kept us both seriously busy. Now, we’re combining our efforts (and eyes) to create one mighty vision: HarderLee Photography.

HarderLee has a long track record photographing everything from CEOs, members of parliament, Olympic athletes, and performing artists to Queen Elizabeth the II. Founded by veteran Calgary photographers Brian Harder and Trudie Lee, we specialize in commercial and industrial photography, performing arts and high-end portraits. Our work has appeared in countless magazines, websites, billboards, posters and advertisements here in Calgary and across the country.
