About - Departure Photography

Why choose the name departure?

Noun: de·par·ture  dəˈpärCHər/

1. A deviation from an accepted, prescribed, or traditional course of action or thought.

2. The action of leaving, typically to start a journey.


My goal is to take a photograph that truly represents you. I believe life is an adventure and I want to share your #departuremoments. I try to deviate from the norm and show your life in a new and exciting way. I don't want this just to be just photographs, I want it to be an experience.





Genna Flinkman

My name is Genna and I am the person behind the lens at Departure Photography. I am ecstatic that you found my website and my pictures. My home base is centred around Edmonton, Alberta. When I am not out on a photography adventure I am at home in Edmonton taking photographs and training for Team Canada for Stand Up Paddleboarding. 


Two years ago I left my full time job because I was unhappy with my work. I didn't know it at the time but it was a defining moment in my life. After leaving my job, I took a retail job at a core snowboard, skateboard, and paddleboard shop so I could be around the activities I am passionate about. While working at the store I learned a lot about myself and rediscovered an old passion of mine, photography. 


Fast forward to a year later and I couldn't be happier. I started Departure Photography and am providing lifestyle, portrait, and intimate glamour (Boudoir) photography in the greater Edmonton area. When I am not providing my services in Edmonton, I am traveling in my GMC Savana van that is outfitted with all the necessities. I absolutely love an adventure and I want to be part of yours. Whether it's in the greater Edmonton area or somewhere else in the world, I want to be a part of it.


I truly hope that you follow along on my journey and I can provide you with amazing photographs that last a lifetime.
