Starry Aurora Borealis

I shot this one a little while back and never did anything with the picture. I was looking for something to post on Instagram and thought this shot wasn’t have half bad. The colorful sky always makes for an interesting look. Thanks for stopping by, Rob Advertisements

My Favourite 3 Cameras

  Although I have been known to shoot other brands of cameras here and there, Canon is my favourite. These 3 cameras in particular are my current favourites. The Cameras are a Canon 5D Mark iii, 1D Mark iii & a 6D. I know it’s kind of silly to have all 3 of these (not …

Scattered Sky

Camera: Canon 16-35L @ 35mm ~ Settings: f/18 – 1.3 seconds – ISO 800 Yesterday when I was on my way home I noticed the sky looked a little scattered. I thought it was worth stopping to grab a quick picture, so I did just that. I didn’t feel like dragging out my tripod and setting …

Nikon 50mm 1.8 vs 1.4 Video

I made this video yesterday that gives my thoughts on the Nikon 50mm 1.8D vs 1.4D. The test shots were very un-scientific. All pictures were taken hand-held, one after the other and the lighting in the room did not change. This video was shot with a Canon T3i & 28mm 1.8 and a 5D mark iii …

Street Photography Video

Yesterday I went to do some street shooting by the river here in Calgary and I decided to make a video while doing it :). If your interested in street photography you might like this. Video shot with a Canon 5D mark iii & 16-35L with a Rode Videomic Pro Bellow are the photos in …

Random Trees in the Sky

I was out shooting a house yesterday (for real estate) and decided to get some shots of the park across the street. While I was in the park I randomly decided to point my camera straight up and take a shot. It’s not really my kind of thing, but it’s not bad :). Camera: Canon …

Ridiculously Wide!

I rarely shoot this wide because it looks like all the buildings are falling into each other haha. However, if you want all the buildings in one shot so close, there isn’t much choice. I shot this one in Chinatown in Calgary, Alberta Canada. Camera: Canon 5D mark iii & 16-35L @16mm ~ Settings: 1/160th …

A Walk in Chinatown

I was in Chinatown the other day here in Calgary and I took a few street shots. I decided to shoot 35mm just to mix things up a little and force my self to get a little closer to my subjects. I definitely prefer 50 over 30, but it’s fun to get a little closer …

My Random Car

This is just a random snapshot I took of my car one evening when I was out for a skyline shot. It is a rather noisy picture, so I figured it would be salvageable in black and white :). Camera: Canon 5D mark iii & 16-35L @35 ~ Settings: 1/40th – f/5.6 ISO 4000 Thanks …

Chilly Skyline

I took this yesterday around 5pm and all though it looks rather nice out, I can assure you it was very cold! I was only out of my car for about 5 minutes before my hands started shaking! haha. I figured that was my cue to head back to my car :). Camera: Canon 5D …

New Car!

I picked up a new car yesterday! 2014 BMW X3! Oh man, what an upgrade from my old 2011 BMW X3 haha ;). At first I was going to go to a parking garage with a glass building behind it and shoot off camera flash, but I was in this neighbourhood so I thought I’d …

Studio Time with Mr. Blackman

A couple of days ago I was sitting in my office editing photos when I got a text message that read “Hey Rob, you still in Calgary?” I quickly replied with a “Yes” and “Who is this?” haha. To my delighted surprise it was my old buddy from Toronto Damian aka Mr. Blackman. Damian said …

In my day job I shoot real estate photography and am the Creative Director for a real estate company here in Calgary, Canada. I shoot all their photos, videos and take care of the social media side of things. When I was living in the Pacific North West I was shooting weddings full time and …
