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 …

Snow on the Rockies

This morning on my drive to work I was surprised to see the Rocky mountains covered in snow! Usually this would make me cringe at the thought of winter around the corner, but not this year. This year I plan to through my self right back into snowboarding like crazy! So I am welcoming the …
