Skateboarding Around

My family and I have been practicing our social distancing these days. We are taking the CoronaVirus very seriously around here, but we are still trying to have fun. After all, my boys are only going to be 9 & 11 this one year and just because the world is going to hell at the …

Flip Bros

These pictures are from this past summer in Vernon, BC. We were visiting grandma and grandpa before they moved to Victoria. Anyhow, my boys have take’n to doing flips. Wherever we go if something looks like it would be good to flip off of, there they go. All the jumping and flipping make me nervous …

Joshua Hockey Kelowna

Joshua has been having an interesting year of hockey so far. Since we moved to Kelowna the hockey set up here is different from Calgary. First off we missed the “rep team” try outs (we moved here 3 weeks too late), so Joshua was forced to play house league. This means a lot of puck …

Baseball in Edmonton

I guess they like baseball up in Edmonton. I don’t know this for sure, but I was just walking by one day I saw this game going on in what looks like a nice little diamond. The stands aren’t packed, but there are fans and clearly they are keeping some kind of team going, so …

Joshua’s Back On The Ice

My 9 year old son Joshua has started his 2018/19 hockey season here in Calgary. His team is participating in a tournament this weekend and last night I shot a few photos of him during the 2nd period (this was the only time I could stand behind/beside the goalie he was shooting on). In the …

BMX Riders Be Crazy!

About a month ago I took my 2 sons up to Edmonton to check out a skateboard & BMX contest. I grew up skateboarding, so while I was having fun watching the skaters, my sons were much more interested in the BMX’ers and I don’t blame them. These guys are crazy! The high flying flips …

Switching Positions

My 8 year old son Joshua is in his 4th year of playing hockey. Joshua has been talking about wanting to play goalie for the last couple years and has progressively become more and more interested in the position. Over the last couple of months it had become clear to me that my sons heart …

Still Skateboarding

A lot of things in life change, somethings don’t. I have been riding around on my skateboard since I was around 8 years old. At times I skated more than others, but it has always been a part of my life and I’m sure it always will be in one way or another. I shot …

Cammy Hockey

My 6 year old son has started playing hockey this year. Well it’s more of a hockey camp, but it’s the first time he’s been on a proper rink with all the gear. He’s been hanging around the rink watching his older brother Joshua play for the past few years and he finally decided he …

Joshua’s 1st Saints Game

My son Joshua (#18) is playing “Timbits” hockey this year. The team he plays for is called the Saints and they had their first real game on Saturday. Joshua had a really great game and scored 7 goals for his team! What a guy, I couldn’t have been more proud of him :). I didn’t …

Pre-Focus Run

I like getting pictures of people running from this part of the city. The skyline background just does it for me somehow. On this day I posed a bit of challenge to myself. I wanted to get a shot of someone running, well, , , a woman running, because people like pictures of women running …

Canon vs Sony 70-200mm

I have been shooting a decent amount with my Sony a7R these days and I have run into some auto focus speed issues along the way. I have found that Sony’s hit rate of moving subjects is noticeably lower than what I have been used to with my Canon gear. This issue rang especially true …
