Lots of Water

Well there doesn’t seem to be any shortage or whatever around here. I honestly don’t know what the story is with this water coming up out of the ground at the park by my house. I thought it was an odd scene and worth a picture. As for the other picture, well I just shot …

Minolta 50mm 1.2 vs Pentax 55mm 1.8

I have been shooting with my Minolta 50mm f/1.2 for a long time now. I have always known the short comings of the lens and had accepted the trade offs (like lack of sharpness wide open) for the f/1.2 speed. I have also had my Pentax 55mm f/1.8 for a long time, but haven’t shot …

Okanagan Centre

Over the weekend my family and I took a little drive out to Lake Country, a town about 20 minutes north of Kelowna. We found our selves in the neighbourhood of Okangan Centre were we were taking our dog for a little walk. I ended up wondering off on my own for a bit as …

End of the Sunset

Last night my wife was doing yoga, my kids were playing video games and my dog was laying around like a sac of potatoes. Since non of the above seamed very appealing to me I figured I’d grab Juneau and take her for a little stroll around the neighbourhood. A dog needs to walk after …

Shoe Near By

After I shot the sunset photo out my window the other day I wanted to get another shot, but I knew I have very limited amount of time before the sunset light was gone. I quickly looked around at whatever was in the room I was in. I spotted this pair of shoes and just …

Sunset from the House

We had a lot of things going on around the house last night. As life was happening I couldn’t help but notice the beautiful sunset going down out in front of our house. Since the sunset was already in full swing I knew wouldn’t have enough time to get any where good to shoot more …

What’s Your Name?

I shoot real estate photos from time to time and when I was living in Calgary I shot a lot of real estate photos. As you can image I have met my fair share of random cats and dogs. This cat in particular was quite striking to me and I couldn’t help but shoot a …

Sunset End

I just caught the end of this sunset a few days ago on my way home from work. While I was driving I could see the amazing light shining on the buildings downtown. Unfortunately the traffic was moving slower than I would have liked and I wasn’t in a good area for a  decent shot. …

Kodak Shannon

I shot some photos with my Instagram friend Shannon a few weeks ago and just go the film back last week. I sent the film to a place in Winnipeg Manitoba (more on the place another time) because there is no professional place in Calgary to get film developed. Anyhow, I was shooting Kodak Ektar …

Nikon Legend

Click photo to view in a larger size. So I have decided to take it back to the old school and start shooting some film again. When I was shooting film back in the day I was mostly shooting with a Canon Rebel, not exactly the greatest camera, but it was good for me at …

Flight of The AE-1

I’m sure this idea isn’t new and there are people all over the world tossing their cameras around, but I this particular version was my idea. Location was key for this photo, as the background (even though it’s blurry) would play a big part in the over all feel of the final product. Since its …

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 …

Lensbaby Sweet 35

Camera: Canon 5D mark iii & 16-35L ii @ 35mm ~ Settings: f/5.6 – 1/5 – ISO 400 This is one crazy lens! I had been aware of Lensbaby for a long time now, but I never had the opportunity to use one. Then one day last week, I walked into a random thrift store …
