Hey Guy!

Here is another Fujifilm X-T2 straight out of camera shot (no edits). This guy was parked here and taking pictures looking the other direction. I wanted to get a picture with his face in it, so I yelled “Hey Guy!” haha. Judging by the direction of his eyes he must have thought it was someone else yelling at him. 🤣

Rugby Wedding: Lindsay & Vinny

Clearly Lindsay and Vinny both love Rugby! Oh and their cute dog, who played a big part in their wedding. When I first met with Lindsay and Vinny they told me they wanted to do some type of Ruby wedding shots and right away I was excited, because I had never done any wedding shots like that and I knew it would be fun. When wedding time came around it wasn’t often I didn’t see that ruby ball kicking around and their dog was definitely there for everything too. Lindsay and Vinny were super fun and easy to work with. Their wedding party and parents were a joy to be around and I think we all had a wonderful time together!

Note: The two people who caught the bouquet and garter belt(it was on the ball) are a couple. 🙂

Thanks for a fun wedding Lindsay & Vinny!

 

Just Weeks before with Amy & Dwight

I went kicking around Princes Island Park with Amy & Dwight the other day to shoot some engagement photos. Funny thing about this photo session is it was only a few weeks away from the actual wedding! Not exactly typical, but who cares ;). We really lucked out with the weather because the days leading up to the shoot were really ugly out and then on the day the sun was shinning and it was sweater weather. Good weather, good people and a good location is a recipe for fun and that’s what happened.

I also shot a bit of video along the way too and have added it here if your into that sort of thing.

Little Skateboarder – Stills & Video

On Saturday afternoon my 6 year old son Cameron and I went for a little skate downtown. We were heading to the very popular Peace Bridge to get a shot of Cameron on his skateboard in the middle of the bridge. However, when we got there the wind was blowing like crazy and it was kind of a bad scene. We decided to hit the streets in search of a new spot to shoot a photo. We found a spot with smooth cement, places to leave our gear and set up our cameras with very little interruption from passerbyers.

Not only did we shoot photos, but we were also rolling video on the whole thing for my vlog. I didn’t realize how many times I had Cam push off on his skateboard for the photo until I was going over the video footage at home. I didn’t count how many times he did it, but it was a at least 30 times! For a 6 year old to have that kind of patience on a photo shoot is amazing. I also noticed he took direction very well. I was super impressed by all of this at the time, but even more so after the fact. I think he’d make a good little actor or model if he wanted to go down that road. For now I think we’ll just stick to the skateboarding though ;).

TriMet to the Bridge

rob-moses-exif-data-settings-canon-6d-50mm-1-4I had just walked across this bridge in Portland and saw the train coming up. One quick shot later and I had this picture. If I had a little more time to think I probably would have shot this with a slower shutter speed to show some movement in the train. I guess I’ll have to wait till next time to have another go at it.

The 2nd photo is just shot I took of myself while I was taking pictures off the top of this parking garage. 🙂

Drop The Bass

I was out kicking around the streets of Calgary last weekend shooting some photos with a friend of mine. I spotted this guy from across the street and knew I had to get a shot of him. He was drop’n the bass on some funky tunes and was real cool about a picture. Love people like that!

Surfer Dude

Sony a7ii

I was wondering around the streets of Isla Mujeres (a small island off the cost of Cancun) on day when I noticed this guy sitting here. He looked like a surfer dude who came straight out of the 1960’s to me. Well if they had cell phones in the 60’s haha. Anyhow, the dude has a real vintage vibe and I thought it matched up with the scene just perfect.

Our Cancun Trip

rob-moses-exif-data-sony-a7ii-24-70mmSo as you may already know my family and I took a trip to Cancun Mexico recently. As you can imagine I took a lot of pictures. I will be sharing some of the Mexico pictures on here over the next little while, but I though I’d drop a bunch at once right now to give you an idea of how the trip looked. It was warm, fun and I’m looking forward to the next one!

Bouncing Flash

exif-data-rob-moses-5d-mark-iii-28mm-1-8This is Chris, I was over at his house last night for dinner. I knew he lived in the building that was off white in color, so I thought I’d see how the flashed looked bouncing it off the wall. I used a 28mm lens so I could take in some of the surrounding buildings. I should have moved in a little closer to Chris though, because I ended up cropping in a bit on this shot. Other than that I think it worked out pretty good. I bounced the flash off the wall to camera right. The bounced flash looks soft and even, can’t ask for much more than that.

A Dolphin Push

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-6d-50mm-1-4I was just walking around this Resort I was at in Cancun last year when I stumbled upon this. The dolphins would push people around in this pool by their feet! It was amazing to see and looked like it would be a lot of fun. I personally can’t support locking up any type on animals (btw I do not look down on people that do, that’s just how I feel) so I didn’t try it myself, but this lady seemed to be enjoying herself. 🙂

Enjoy The Lights

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-5d-mark-iii-50mm-1-4I took this picture right when I showed up to this location. These two were standing right in the perfect spot for me take a picture of them. They seemed to be enjoying the lights and from what I could tell they didn’t mind me taking their picture. I was shooting with a 50mm lens, so as you can imagine I was quite close to them and I am certain they could hear my camera clicking away. I suppose they were just another friendly couple in Edmonton, which I am sure there are many :).

Wedding in The Mountains: Kelsey & Ryan

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-5d-mark-iii-24-70mm-f2-8-lI had such a wonderful time shooting this wedding! I won’t bore with all the reasons why, but in short Ryan is family, he’s a cool guy along with his wife and all their friends were fun to be around. Now clearly Kelsey & Ryan chose a beautiful location for their wedding. Anytime in Banff is a good time, but when your shooting photo of people you know and love, it is extra special and that is exactly how this day went.

Straight away in the morning I went over to Ryan’s hotel room where the men were getting ready. These guys were having a time as the men tend to do, cheers’n and watching “How to tie a tie” videos on YouTube and what not ;). I tried not to get in the way, shot some photos and then scooted over to the room where Kelsey and the ladies were getting ready. The good times were also rolling over there, although a little more civilized fun times were defiantly going on.

The ceremony was beautiful as you would expect a Banff ceremony to be. This was followed by some group shots and then the wedding party and I took off to our first location which was just behind the hotel. Now you couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day, except for this little breeze that was causing a bit of a ruckus. Right as we were set up to shoot one of our first formal photos the wind got so crazy my very heavy tripod with its flash blew right over, I turned to see it fall and when I looked back up Kelsey’s veil was flying off in the wind down the steep hill behind her! Lucky for the fast action of Ryan and his brother they were able to retrieve the veil without tumbling down the hill themselves. That veil taking off ended up working out though, as I think the shot we got was better without it.

Our next location was up a gondola to the top of a beautiful mountain overlooking the Rockies! Again, the location was out of this world and again, , , so was that wind!😅 Right when we got there we had this group of tourists ask to take a picture with the bridesmaids (bride & groom were MIA), that was hilarious, then another couple ask to get some shots with the bride and groom! Celebrity status was going down on that mountain for sure. Anyhow, the views were amazing and the walk to the peak was filled with laughter and joy. Shooting photos was easy up there, because when you have a beautiful couple and a backdrop to die for the book kind of writes itself.

I could go on and on about this wedding, but I won’t because this post is already insanely long. I will leave you with this, if you want to have the wedding of a life time, get your family together and head to Banff, Alberta Canada! Congratulations Ryan & Kelsey and thanks for taking me a long for the ride. 😉

Room With a View

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-6d-24-70mm-f2-8-lJust taking in the view from my hotel room’s deck in Spokane, Washington. I dialled in my settings and handed my camera off to my wife to take this one for me. It really was a nice view and I was fired up about the sweater I bought the night before at the Spokane Chiefs game ;). Always a good time in Spokane, I love that place.
