Out in These Streets

I was out kicking around Calgary last night shooting some photos. It wasn’t a particularly nice night for it, because the sky was rather dark, but there were people out and the atmosphere of the city made up for the dark skies. I met 4 different people and we all followed each other on Instagram. …

River Rocks

I was down by the river the other night shooting some photos. I came across this stack of rocks set up just perfectly to shoot a photo. I was using my Vivitar manual focus lens and it was the perfect lens for this shot. The lens blurred the photo just enough to give good separation …

Bow River Night

I shot this one on Saturday night from underneath the Skipping Stone Bridge on St. Patricks Island (in Calgary). I was using my Fujifilm X-E1 with an old Canon FD mount Vivitar 28mm f/2 close focus lens. The camera and lens performed wonderfully together. This shot is straight out of the camera (other than a …

Bouncing Flash

This 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. …

Mexican Stars & Streets

I shot this one last year while I was staying at some resort between Cancun and Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. I didn’t have a tripod with me at the time so I couldn’t get the composition exactly how I would have liked it. I just rested my camera on a ledge and shot a long …

Abandoned Lakefront

A friend of mine took me out to this abandoned farm to shoot some photos. The place was pretty spectacular and we got a lot of good pictures there. This building was especially interesting to me, because when they built it the owners must have been so happy to have this nice structure built right by …

Neon

I love old neon signs on buildings. This particular one is quite wonderful. I love how this sign lights up the whole corner of the street. I shot this in Great Falls, Montana. The rest of the street was pretty dark and this little gem was a breath of fresh air in the dark night. …

Landscape in the Night

Camera: Canon 6D & 28mm f/1.8 ~ Settings: f/2 – 15 seconds – ISO 2000 A few weeks ago a friend of mine and I went out to Drumheller, Alberta to shoot a little landscape. I acutely forgot about these pictures until this morning when I was chatting with another friend of mine and he …

Summer Cycle

Calgary has some nice biking paths around the city. There are some nice views and great places to stop along the way. I personally wouldn’t be caught cruising around on the paths right now as it is currently 16°F out and I’m sure I’d freeze to death and if that didn’t kill me I’d surely …

Wedding by the River: Mal & Jay

I shot Mal & Jay’s wedding last weekend and it was a beautiful day for it! I started my day off at Mal’s house to get some shots of her and the girls while they got ready. When I arrived everyone was in good spirits and clearly having fun. After some fun shots with the …

4 Year Old Violet

This is the 3rd photo shoot I have done with Violet and her mom. Violet is about to turn 4 years old and for the past couple of birthdays we have done a photo shoot. It’s so fun to see her over the years and watch how she has changed. This year Violet was easier …
