West Kelowna View

With a little effort you can get to these amazing views around here in Kelowna, British Columbia. This was a nice hike up a mountain in West Kelowna and there was plenty to see from up there. I shot a bunch of photos but the landscape is a little dull at the moment and I …

Lake is Life

No matter what the weather is doing I love this lake. I grew up by the water is almost all the places I lived (and there was a lot) growing up. Other than when I lived Phoenix AZ I spent my life living by either the ocean or a big lake. When I moved to …

Over That Hill

There’s a beautiful little city just over that hill and I am happy to call it home. I’d be lying if said I felt that way everyday, but on days when I’m out in the city or some where with a view of it I am reminded of why it’s a good place to live. …

This Kelowna View

I shot this one last week before all the snow fell. I’m sure this scene looks a lot different right now. Anyhow, I like looking at Kelowna from the other side of the lake. When I look at the city from this view it reminds me of how much good stuff we got here. Nice …

Parked for the winter

I parked the van in my garage last night and it barely fit. Lucky for me the previous owner of my house left these sandbags just sitting by the garage, so I put them in the back of the van and had my kids jump in there too. That extra weight was just enough too …

Big Rock Beach

I shot this photo before it started getting into jacket weather. I figured if I was going t share this photo I better hurry up and get it out now before it’s too late. The name of this beach isn’t “Big Rock Beach”, I just couldn’t help notice that the beach was made up of …

Shy Eagle

Yesterday I went for a little drive south of the city (Kelowna) to see if I could get any decent pictures. I was in my Westfalia van and shot a bunch of pictures of the van and some landscape stuff. I felt like I had got enough photos for the day and started heading home …

Summer Skyline

I shot this one back in early September and then forgot about it haha. I was driving by this little park on my way to a photo shoot when I saw a hill I could probably get a shot from. Since I had plenty of time to get to my shoot I decided to make …

Nooreen & Imran’s Calgary Wedding

I had the pleasure of shooting Nooreen & Imran’s wedding last weekend. Both Nooreen & Imran live in Edmonton, but had their wedding here in Calgary, as it is Nooreen’s hometown. I started the day off at Nooreen’s grandmothers house where the girls were getting ready. After a few photos I zipped over to the …

Please Forgive My Photo & Me

Camera: Canon 5D mark iii & 70-300mm IS DO @ 70mm ~ Settings: f/8 – 1/125th – ISO 1250 If this photo had a nice clear sky behind it, it would be 10 times better. Normally I would just scrap the photo and go back another day when it was nicer out. However! Getting this …

Flying Under Moonlight

Yesterday evening I caught this WestJet flight flying under the moonlight. I waited around trying to get another shot of a jet flying right in front of the moon. I came close as you can see in the 2nd picture, however the shot was not meant to be at that moment.┬áNext time! ;). Both photos …

A Friendly Walk

I shot this photo when I was out at a horse show here in Calgary not to long ago. This shot was rather random as I was just walking by and noticed this girl walking with her horse and snapped a quick one :). Canon T3i & 70-300mm DO IS @200mm ~ f/5.6 – 1/400th …

Downtown from Nose Hill Park

There is a massive city park in the North West side of Calgary and I took a walk in it yesterday to shoot this photo. It was a little hazy out, but the picture tired out ok. Camera: Canon 5D mark iii & 70-300mm DO IS @250mm ~ Settings: f/18 – 1/400th – ISO 1600 …
