Mirror Man

So there I was waiting for an elevator one day when I spotted this mirror. I didn’t give it much thought to be honest, just a quick look and a snap. Sometimes that’s all you need to walk away with something you like. 🙂

Where Did Summer Go?

Whenever winter rolls around in Calgary I always feel like I didn’t get out enough during the summer. I take a look through the photos I shot and think, what the hell was I doing all summer? I do have a decent amount of photos I can use if I don’t feel like going outside to freeze, but I now that’s it’s cold out I can’t help but think I was missing out in August. Ah well, there’s always next year! Here’s a sunset from this past summer.

Bridgeland

This is a not so common view of part of my neighbourhood where I live in Calgary. I shot this photo with a 300mm lens, so the compression kind of makes everything seem rather close together. Anyhow, if you know the area it’s probably more interesting to you, but if you don’t I still think it’s a nice picture to look at (in a larger size). 🙂

East Village Sunset

I took this picture in the summer and kind of forgot about it. I was riding around on my bike trying to find a good spot to get a shot of the sunset and I knew I was in a now or never type situation. So I burned down a narrow path to the riverside and shot this photo just in the nick of time! 🙂

Urban Honolulu Night

The city of Honolulu looks amazing at night! The view from the apartment we rented was especially amazing after the sun went down. I kind of wish I lived in a an apartment so I could get a wicked city view like this, but when you got two crazy little boys that love to run out the door every 5 minutes it’s not really ideal. Maybe one day though ;).

Hawaii Wedding: Chelsea & Zenon

Last weekend I had the pleasure of shooting my sister in-law’s wedding in Hawaii! It was my first time shooting a wedding in that kind of crazy heat and the weather was unpredictable. On the day of the wedding we had a sprinkle of rain before the action started and it was totally cloudy when the ceremony started, but by the end of the ceremony the sky’s had started to clear up! That is some fast changing weather! Good thing it was changing in the right direction.

Since I know Chelsea and Zenon so well already, shooting their wedding was super casual and it was a blast! I always enjoy shooting weddings and all the events that take place, but this one was extra special to me since it was a family affair. Everyone that made the trip was super happy to be there and the whole wedding was beautiful. These types of conditions make getting good pictures a breeze. 🙂

Thanks for the fun times you two!

Congratulations!

Sunburst City

I’m a sucker for a good sunburst and I’ll try to grab one whenever I can. The thing I really love about these pictures is that sunburst is the reflection of the sun off of a pretty cool looking building! If your a city guy (or girl) like me, then that’s what it’s all about ;).

Oh ya, and that dude that’s practicing his karate moves is hilarious! 🤣

Stacey & Benn Back Then

These photos are of Stacey and Benn and I shot them last month. Obviously the lovely couple has already received their photos, but I just couldn’t find the time to get them up here. Anyhow, I had such a good time with these two and even though the weather was being super crazy the night we shot photos everyone still had fun and we got some good shots. The light was constantly changing and the wind was defiantly blowing and that makes for a some what difficult shoot. Even though the weather wasn’t perfect, I fun times of the shoot were! 🙂

YYC Iron Horse

This cool horse is right in the middle of downtown here in Calgary. It is in this really cool city park that is attached to a train station. I don’t often find myself in this park, but every time I do I take a minute to admire the art.

A couple years ago I took another picture of one of these statues at night. You can see that picture here: Click Me!

Heck of a Sunset

I was on my way home from a photo shoot last night and I could see a wicked sunset going down. It was a bit late and I wanted to get home, but I knew I would regret not stopping for one last picture. Am I ever glad I stopped, because it was one heck of sunset indeed! 🙂

Blue

This picture has got blue going on every where in it! I shot this photo on Saturday night off a bike path. I used the gorilla pod strapped onto a fence to shoot it. It is such a nice location to grab a seat and enjoy the view. No blue feelings here, just a beautiful blue skyline!

Abandoned House Mannequin

Last weekend a friend of mine and I went out to High River, Alberta to check out this abandoned neighbourhood. The whole neighbourhood was built on in a flood zone and of course it had been flooded. The province(state) decided the residence could no longer live there so they bought everyone out. Anyhow, we walked around and checked out the scene and there really wants much to see, just looked like an empty neighbourhood because all the house are too new and the city is still cutting the grass. Once it got dark we dragged this mannequin into the neighbourhood (you could not drive in) and set it up in front  of this house for some weirdo shots haha.

We used one LED to camera left, another to camera right behind the tree lighting up house and one Canon 580EX ii Speedlite directly behind the mannequin for rim light.

It’s kind of a weird picture, but we had fun taking it! 🙂
