Wilderness Out There

Living in the middle of the mountains and beautiful lakes is definitely the place to be for me! There are so many good photo opportunities around here and I am super excited to see them all. I love exploring a new year and there seems too be an endless amount of exploring to be done …

Great Horned Owl & Friend

This big Great Horned Owl was hanging out in a tree in front of my house last month! He was sleeping there for a few hours and after a while this Magpie bird came over and started hanging out with it haha. Pretty cool thing to see out your bedroom window 🙂 Click photos to …

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. Next 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 …

Olympic Flame

When Canada wins a gold medal in the Olympics, Calgary lights up its Olympic flame for a short period (an hour or so I believe). The day before I shot these I saw the flame on from my bedroom window and thought I’d go out and shoot some photos that night. However after making plans …

Run For It!

As you may know from my last post I was out on a little country drive on Friday. While I was driving I noticed a group of Elk & Deers on the side of the road up a hill, however they were to far to get a good picture, since the longest focal length lens …

Under A Bridge

With a scene like this I think most people would think to shoot this photo wide and I understand why, but I thought shooting it with a longer focal length might look good too. I’m happy with how the picture turned out, maybe next time I’ll see what I get with a wide-angle. Camera: Canon …

Skyline View Walk

The other day went for a walk in Calgary‘s biggest inner city park, Nose Hill Park. I was up there shooting some photos of the mountains to the west. While I was shooting photos this nice lady walked by with her dog. By the time I decided to shoot a quick photo of her and …

Sitting Strange

I’m not much of a bird photographer, but I never seen a bird sit like this on a tree before. Yesterday I was shooting some photos of a river and then I heard this woodpecker pecking away at a tree. The woodpecker looked very cool with black and white feathers. At the time I had …
