The idea for Focal came when I struggled to book a photographer for a shoot in Banff with my partner. I couldn’t believe how hard it was to give people my money! So, I built the original Focal marketplace. A platform where photographers can successfully market their packages to potential clients without needing to be SEO or digital marketing wizards.
These days, we still have the marketplace but have also evolved to offer a range of products photographers need to help their business succeed online. These include self-serve or custom SEO-optimized websites, packages, a seamless booking system, and much more. Our vision is a path for every photographer’s unique journey and a solution for every step of the way.

It has been an absolute joy working with Focal as they built me a new website. The team at Focal listened to all my needs for my website and responded within minutes every time I had a question. My website is phenomenal now, and because of all the extras they implemented onto it I can now do away with some of the third party applications that I was using. Everything is built right into my website which has greatly increased my CRM as well as my SEO. Anyone looking to have their website built should look no further than this company. Will be doing business with Focal from hence forth.
I cannot emphasize how grateful I am for these awesome peeps at Focal. I wanted a very clean and simplistic website design, and their team helped me build my website exactly how I wanted it. I didn't have to spend hours or days trying to build my own. They did all the work! Best part is that it has a booking system to keep track of my clients, payments and packages all in one place! They have amazing customer service and they respond to you very promptly. I can’t thank them enough and I can’t wait to continue working with them. I would 100% recommend.
I am blown away by the experience I have had with Lachlan and his team at Focal! Everything from a personal one on one consult for my new website to making me video walking me through the process to make a website adjustment, never once have I felt that I was just another customer! It's rare to find a company that says "They are always here to help." and truly mean it!
They rebuilt my website with my personality and image in mind! They are so good the first draft was the final product!! My last website I'd been building for about 3 years, well they built a better one in a week. Lachlan and his team did an amazing job and I'm so happy I went with these guys!
