And I asked All these lovely people in July 2016
Having worked with Kent on product and brand launches, as well as seasonal campaigns, I've always appreciated his energy, positivity and creativity. There's no challenge on set, or in preparation for a shoot, that Kent couldn't solve. Kent forges a path of innovation and influence well before other photographers in his caliber.
He takes pictures good. No shit.

I have worked with Kent on multiple projects over the last two years and he continuously goes above and beyond to meet my project timelines and to work within my available budgets. He is professional, easy to work with, yet he still finds a way to inject some light and humour into every shoot making the day that much more enjoyable.
I would highly recommend working with Kent and look forward to our next project together.
Shayne Labis | Markeing Coordinator
Our collaboration goes back many years as I worked in the transportation field, I have worked extensively with Kent on a professional basis and it continues today. On all projects, I found him very professional, very organized and always willing to provide assistance and finding solutions to our problems. He has demonstrated exceptional creative ability and always willing to go beyond what is normally experienced in a supplier/client relationship. He shows commitment to hard work and prides himself as a consummate perfectionist, and is always striving to better himself or keeping up with the latest technology. He has dedicated his life to his work and it shows in everything he works on. Kent is organized, efficient, and extremely competent, not to mention he has an excellent rapport with people. He demonstrated that he can be cool, calm and collected under pressure and always gets the shots that we need.
In summary, I highly recommend him for any project and I’m sure the he would come through for you as he has for me.

“Regardless of the project, the creative energy and passion Kent brings to every project has had him on my speed-dial for almost 20 years. His range of creative skills have always made him my first call for high quality photography.”
Loring Phinney | Vice President, Corporate Marketing
For anyone wanting a truly professional experience, Kent Kallberg is an exceptional and talented photographer. Our firm has been working with Kent for over 20 years and I am extremely pleased with his work. Our lawyer photo shoots are an ongoing project and Kent has a unique ability to make our lawyers feel natural and at ease. Kent is laid back, friendly and relaxed, yet professional, patient and attentive. His sense of humour brings out the best in people, allowing him to capture the most natural images. Recently, we hired Kent for a photography project and he worked under a very tight timeline to meet the firm’s deadline. Kent is a professional whose passion for what he does is shown by the quality of the work he produces. I can state without reservation that I highly recommend Kent for your professional photography needs.

It doesn't matter what side of the lens you are on when shooting with Kent, it is always an enjoyable time. His creativity and ability to shoot various subjects, ranging from corporate portraits, office towers, property amenity facilities, to breath-taking shots of downtown Vancouver, make him my go-to photographer. His canny demeanor, endless stories from adventures in his previous lives, and jokes while working, makes you feel like you are more than just a client.

Yes you really did a superb job on this and went outside the box. We can definitely use these photos and beyond!”
Umar Bacchus | Creative Designer
"I am quite particular about the quality of photographer with whom I hire. I have chosen to work with Kent early in his career to the present, over more than 20 years! Kent always gets the shot I want no matter how complicated to execute – Advertising, aerial, in the water, portrait, travel, event, architecture and real estate, street, fashion, classroom, nature and editorial. Kent really knows his business. He's professional, fast, efficient, energetic, creative and understands the marketing/advertising process. It's always a pleasure working with Kent, and I hope to continue working with him for years to come.”

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Kent for almost 15 years now, collaborating on various assignments for my employer. I have complete confidence in his ability to get the shot and deliver what’s needed, and I highly value his adaptability, patience, creativity, and overall easy-going attitude. I know that I can always rely on Kent to get the job done, and done well, and that makes my job so much easier.
Now I just need to make sure he doesn’t retire before I do.

I don't know how often Kent practices yoga or meditation but he is a patient guy for sure. He doesn't think an assignment is finished until the client says so. An art director, photographer and funny dude all in one.

"For the last two decades, Kent has either been shooting or lending his expertise to the Larrivée family. When most photographers land, Kent is only taking off."
