The Edmonton based, colourblind, photographer (of many a things), that you never knew you needed in your life!

Hey there, my name is Keegan Goerz! I am an Edmonton based photographer who loves the adventure inherent in telling stories through imagery.

Ever since someone put a Canon Rebel XSi 450D into my hands over a decade ago, I have been in love with capturing images. There is something just so powerful about being able to freeze epic moments of nature, or memorializing the largest memories we have, that makes me fall in love with this art form on a daily basis.

The story behind when I knew this experience was going to be different for me, when compared to other new photographers, is unique. You see, I have Deuteranomaly, or red-green colourblindness!

Early on this manifested as weird colour combinations, over saturation, and odd dream like landscapes. But in that process I had to learn to take feedback on my work. It forced me to ask others to lend their functioning eyes to check for proper colour balancing. But let’s be fair; folks are bad at giving only a little bit of feedback. In the process of sharing that I unwittingly made the subjects skin bright orange, they would always make time to also share what they like about a composition, or what makes for an enjoyable subject, or to recommend I try a different angle.

You see, I was never able to be complacent or shy. I had to put my work out there for people to see in order to even participate in the art form in the first place. And I had to adapt to meet the feedback being provided to me.
It was terrifying; and amazing.

My work ranges from events & family shoots, to wildlife, to some of the most picturesque vistas on the planet; and everything in between! It is my goal to always feel like an adventure is waiting just behind the door, which requires finding new and exciting adventures around my home city of Edmonton. So if you have heard of any, please drop me a line!

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I absolutely love working on custom or personalized orders! Please reach out by email (keegangoerzphoto@icloud.com) or by Etsy’s messaging service, to let me know what you are hoping to have done.

Do you offer digital files?

I do! Each physical item has a corresponding digital only version available from my shop.

Should I order a digital copy, or a physical print?

Another great question!

The digital file option is great for someone who already has a print shop in their local community that they would prefer to have complete the artwork.

Alternatively, getting a physical print is a great option if you want a one and done solution where the artist captures, edits, and prints your artwork before shipping it to you. It takes all of the extra leg work out of the process making it easier to have your new piece hanging on your wall. Plus you get the piece of mind knowing the artists intent was faithfully represented in the final product you received.

What kind of camera do you use?

I have used several cameras over my career, but am currently using a Canon EOS R. I often pair it with my RF 24-105 f4L IS USM lens, as it tends to be a great adventure lens.

Do you offer other services beyond prints?

Absolutely! Printing my favourite pieces is an incredible passion of mine, however I have an equal love for doing work with clients.
