Hello, my name is Rob and I am a Native American (Tlingit) photographer based out of Kelowna, British Columbia. Although my Tlingit heritage is not front and centre of all my work I try to incorporate it when I can. Beyond the obvious I am always flying the flag.
The best best thing I can say here is I take a lot of pictures, a lot of different types of pictures. Of course I shoot weddings and portraits and that stuff is wonderful and I love it, but it’s not enough for me. I need to be out all the time shooting photos and to do that I shoot all types of things. Street photography and city skylines are some of my most favourite things to shoot. I also find myself shooting more landscape than I thought I ever would. To be honest landscape photography doesn’t really get me that excited, but somehow I often find myself shooting it. I guess when your surrounded by beauty it only make sense to take the pictures. I guess that’s how I approach my photography, if it’s around me I’ll be taking pictures of it!
Hope you find some stuff you like here, thanks Rob
If you ever have any questions about photography or anything else, please feel free to leave your questions in the comment section and I’ll do my best to help you out!
nice to know about you..love your shots here…thanks for visiting my blog 🙂 Keep blogging
Hey no problem! Thanks for stopping by here 😉
Enjoy the new adventure. You’ll be amazed what it will reveal.
Thank you, should be fun 🙂
Hi Rob – I know all about relocating from one province to another. I moved from Calgary to rural SK a little over 5 years ago. Setting up a network here took some time but it gets easier with each month. It’s all word of mouth and with the social networking tools we have at our fingertips you will be busier than you dreamed in no time at all! Best of luck/ Looking forward to following you here and via twitter!
Whoops! I just noticed that when I replied to your comment ages ago I did it as another comment and not a reply haha. Sorry about that, here is what I wrote back on March 3rd lol.
– “Thank you very much Anna. Your comment is reassuring Thanks for stopping by and for the follows!”
No worries, Rob! Looks like you really have embraced Calgary life! Great to see my old “home town” through your eyes.
Thank you very much Anna. Your comment is reassuring 🙂 Thanks for stopping by and for the follows!
Thanks for visiting culturalrites.com & welcome to Alberta.
No problem. Thank you 😉
Thanks for visiting my blog…great photography! The anchorwoman portrait is absolutely stunning. You caught a great moment. Great stuff and good luck.
Thank you! 😀
Good luck to you. Thank you for visiting my blog 🙂
Thank you and no problem 🙂
Thanks for liking my photos. I have another blog purely for photos only if you want to have a look sometime. :-).
No problem, I’ll take a look 🙂
Thank you for visiting and liking my post! I’m a complete beginner at taking photos, but love it…learning and being inspired from the great photographers that I follow!
No problem 🙂 Thanks for stopping by here too! Have fun taking pictures!
Thanks for visiting and following my blog. You got pretty good blog. Looking forward to see more posts from your blog! Cheers!
thank you very much! Right back at ya 😉
Hey Rob…just realized yours is one of the blogs WordPress had disappear from my reader…I’ve had issues with this for the past couple of months, with a few other blogs I follow? Not sure why this happens, regardless, I’ve followed you again!
Hey! Nice to hear from you. I was wondering what happen to you! haha. How is that 50? I hope you didn’t give up on it, it’s truly the best! 😀 Just take a bit of getting used to, that’s all.
lol…WordPress happened to me! 🙂 I started out using the 50 but I take a great deal of photos at our Market and it doesn’t allow me to take the shots I want,which is quickly,maybe I just don’t know how to use it properly??? I purchased a Nikon 55 -200 and I’m enjoying it, as it is allowing me to shoot the way I do at the Market. Having said that I do intend to work with the 50, I won’t let it sit, but right now my photos are predominately about the Market. You know I’m still in the infancy stage and there is so much I don’t know that it will take me a very long time to figure all this out…I have my trusty book, I visit fabulous photography blogs and learn something new all the time but there is so much to learn it gets over whelming so I’m allowing my self to step back, to have fun, enjoy… but learn at the same time. 🙂 H…..
Your photos are beautiful. I really like the Seattle at night. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I’m just getting started too. 😉
Thank you. Although I don’t know if I personally would say I was just getting started. I’ve been a full time professional since 2008 😉 I just had a different blog before.
cool! I’m just a beginner photographer- I just like taking pictures, don’t really know what I’m doing. (same with the blog) 😉
Thanks for stopping by at xballerina! I am so glad to read about you and your photos are beautiful, very professional. I am starting over in a new place as well, so I very much relate to your post. Being in the ballet field sounds very similar to photography, as far as getting into the community and making connections. So far so good in New York, but we’ll see where it all leads. All the best of luck to you!
Hey hey, that’s cool we are in the same boat! ;). New York! That’s the place to be! I wish I was out there too! Thank you for your nice complements 🙂
Hi Rob, Rosie and I love your photos and we thank you for liking our blog.
Oh well thank you! No problem on the like 😉
Thanks for following my photo blog! Cool pics you’ve got here, I’ll be sure to visit for new posts 🙂
No problem. Thanks for stopping in, I’ll see you around the feed 😉
I’d wanted to thank you for liking my bit about the recycling bin program and now I realize I should have taken a picture since there really were all the possible combinations of the trash, old recycling, and new recycling bins out there.
No problem, keep doing your thing and keep up the good work 🙂
Awesome blog here Rob! I wanted to compliment the Canon in your image above – that thing is sweet! 😀
Oh thanks a lot Scott! Ya I love shooting those old cameras, they are so fun 🙂
Love that you have expanded your photography on your blog and spreading the inspiration to all of us! Keep it up 🙂
Thank you very much! I am glad you are enjoying the pictures 🙂

Hey Alissa! Thanks for dropping in here. See you around 😉
thanks so much for the like, Rob. I am almost like you, only I am a full-time dreamer and a part-time (wishes she were) photographer. You notice I left out ‘professional.’ I will leave that to you! 🙂
No problem on the like. Keep the dream alive and everything will fall into place eventually! 🙂
it was an honour to be here ,Regards , EM
Sorry for disturbing you if you are not interested, but I’ve seen you liked some of the photos on my photo gallery. Please let me know if you’re planning to buy this kind of shoes, and you would like to save the 60% of the MSRP (manufacturer’s suggested retail price).
Anyway, there are a lot of things in Budapest that you would shoot. Visit us in the future if you can. 🙂
Hey Andras! That is very kind of you! Thank you very much :). I’ll have to take you up on that some time. And yes, I really hope to make my way out there for a visit one day :D.
Hey, where’s the oil and gas expo and energy crowd scene? Isn’t that about as big as it gets in that energy town? Thanks for checking out my blog, and I enjoyed seeing how you thought your ideas out on these platforms.
Wow! So sorry for not replying sooner! Some how this fell through the cracks haha. Anyhow, yes it’s all oil and gas around here Rudy haha. I’ll get some of that going on one of these days ;).
Thank you for liking one of my posts.
I’m also a Canon shooter. Though, I don’t have your two favourite 50mm lenses (well, I sold the F1.8 last Christmas). But I enjoy shooting with the 50mm lens (now I have the 50mm macro lens).
Macro! NICE. I ALMOST got my hands on one once a few years ago. A guy in Seattle was going to sell me his for $85! But I never ended up going to pick it up. I have always regretted that one haha.
Hi, thank you for stopping by and commenting. Now that I’ve found out that your blog is awesome. Hope to keep in touch.
No problem & thank you! 😀

You already know how much I love your work … and I also love Seattle, where I lived for 9 years, at 1111 10th Avenue E, still the quirkiest address I’ve ever had. Really, you are cool. Do you know Mike Pratt from Winnipeg, by any chance? By the way, what’s a Pingback. It seems rude. Is it meant to be or am I missing something?
Thank you very much! That is awesome. Seattle is indeed the best :). I do know Mike Pratt actually! haha. Well not in real life, but we are familiar with each other on WordPress. As for the ping back, as I understand it is a good thing. Link sharing or something to that effect? haha. I personally don’t do them so I’m not really up on it, sorry.
