Buildings Are Life

We are getting more tall buildings around here in Calgary. There are also more regular size buildings too for people to live in, which should be good for the city. I like it when more people are living in the centre of a city rather than in the suburbs and all the new buildings should …

Little Westfalia

I bought this little die cast VW Vanagon Westfalia to take pictures of during the winter months when I can’t take pictures of my real van haha. This is a 1:18 scale model of what looks to be a 1981 or 82 air-cooled Volkswagen Westfalia van. The detail on this model is pretty bang on. …

Before Dark

I was out shooting some photos that did not include a view of the city last night. However the location I was shooting at had a pretty good view of Calgary. Just as I was wrapping up what I was doing I took a look at the city and figured it’d be a shame not …

Baseball in Edmonton

I guess they like baseball up in Edmonton. I don’t know this for sure, but I was just walking by one day I saw this game going on in what looks like a nice little diamond. The stands aren’t packed, but there are fans and clearly they are keeping some kind of team going, so …

Joshua’s Back On The Ice

My 9 year old son Joshua has started his 2018/19 hockey season here in Calgary. His team is participating in a tournament this weekend and last night I shot a few photos of him during the 2nd period (this was the only time I could stand behind/beside the goalie he was shooting on). In the …

Mountain Man

Yesterday my friend Jeremy and I took a little drive out to the mountains in my Westfalia van. We stopped off at a place called Barrier Lake and then wondered up a road we had never been on and found a little hiking trail. Following the short hike we were rewarded with an amazing view …

New Bridge in Edmonton

I was up in Edmonton, Alberta not to long ago and I took a stroll along one of my favourite streets (Saskatchewan Dr.) with some nice views of Edmonton. Along the way the new bridge jumped out at me when I looked at it straight on. Of course the bridge looks great from many angles, …

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 …

Kerri & Pat’s Calgary Wedding

Shooting weddings is always fun! However this particular wedding was really something special. First off, not only have I known Kerri for a really long time, but she is family and I guess so it’s Pat now! (nice addition) Even if I had just met Kerri & Pat the wedding would have been just as …

2010 Seattle

I was poking around some old pictures of mine the other day and I came across this one. I shot it back in 2010 from West Seattle. It’s not the entire skyline, but it’s a nice little bit of it. I miss living in the Pacific North West, because you can actually get out during …

Switching Positions

My 8 year old son Joshua is in his 4th year of playing hockey. Joshua has been talking about wanting to play goalie for the last couple years and has progressively become more and more interested in the position. Over the last couple of months it had become clear to me that my sons heart …

Camera Man

After everyone in my house went to bed last night I decided to go out and shoot some photos. I had the idea for this picture a while back and I knew if I didn’t shoot it soon it would have to wait until the spring. The weather in Calgary has been pretty warm lately, …

Warm Winter Sunset

You can’t really tell from this picture, but it has been a very mild winter so far in Calgary. I’m not sure what the temperature was when I shot this photo, but it was sweater weather for sure. I did kind of a weird edit on this shot, I was going for a grainy film …
