Grizzly Bear

My family and I were driving through Glacier National Park this summer and we saw this Grizzly bear just wandering along the side of the mountain! The longest lens I had with me was a manual focus Canon FD 100mm f/2.8. When we saw the bear my camera had on a 24-70mm so I scrambled …

Orange

I shot this photo with the help of a friend of mine. We sliced the orange and then put it between 2 panes of glass and set it up standing. We had one Canon 580ex ii (triggered by pocket wizards) set up directly behind the orange. We then took a piece of paper with a …

Wine

This was a fun picture to take. I had one large softbox set up to camera right. The background was a board with a bunch of white lights stuck to it with crinkled tinfoil stuck in between them. I shot this handheld while a friend of mine poured the wine into the glass. We made …

Kananaskis Country

I took a drive an hour west of the city this weekend to a little place known as Kananaskis Country. There really isn’t much out there, but the forest, mountains and whatever nature has to offer. Since I live right in the city, from time to time a trip to a remote place like Kananaskis …
