Guard Lion

I knew this new lion statue was put up at a park near my house in Calgary, but I hadn’t got around to going to check it out. Last night I had a late night engagement to attend so I thought I might as will head out a little early and see if there were …

Head of Security

This gigantic public art piece downtown in Calgary is a very popular photo stop for locals and tourist. It is with good reason too because the head is awesome! Security around this head is a little overboard though. For instance, don’t even think of climbing on it or even pretending to climb, security will be …

Flight of The AE-1

I’m sure this idea isn’t new and there are people all over the world tossing their cameras around, but I this particular version was my idea. Location was key for this photo, as the background (even though it’s blurry) would play a big part in the over all feel of the final product. Since its …

In Camera City View

I shot this photo on Friday night from Rotary Park in Calgary. The camera in the picture is my Mamiya 645 1000s with a 80mm f/1.9. I had the camera set up on a tripod and had another tripod set up higher over the pictured camera. I shot this photo with a Sony A7R with …

Minolta City

I was about to toss this old camera in the trash when I I took a look at the mirror after I took the lens off. I thought it looked pretty cool with the little lines and then I though I might be able to get a good photo if I incorporated the mirror of …

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 …

River Rocks

I was down by the river the other night shooting some photos. I came across this stack of rocks set up just perfectly to shoot a photo. I was using my Vivitar manual focus lens and it was the perfect lens for this shot. The lens blurred the photo just enough to give good separation …

Orange

I shot this photo with the help of a friend of mine. We sliced the orange and then put it between 2 panes of glass and set it up standing. We had one Canon 580ex ii (triggered by pocket wizards) set up directly behind the orange. We then took a piece of paper with a …

Colorful Alley

Just a random shot of a colorful alley in Sandpoint, Idaho. I was just walking around this little town one day when I was passing through and thought the alley looked pretty cool. It’s probably a little bright for your typical alley shot, but I thought it worked because of all the color. Thanks for …

Scarves & Flowers

I was kicking around Esther Short Park in Vancouver, Washington one day when I noticed the statue of the old guy was wearing this beautiful knitted scarf. Although it did look a little odd with his iron suit, I thought it was wonderful. And to top it off, this nice little statue girl was giving …

Urban Sun

I was downtown yesterday shooting some photos for a client. While I was down there I thought I’d grab a picture for you all too ;). The gigantic head on the right is actually quite big and it is lit up a night. The sun and sun reflection on the blue building make a fun addition …

Bull City

I don’t have any idea what’s up with this bull statue, but I think it looks pretty cool in this setting. Another handheld shot with the Sony a7ii. For the lens, I was using the Sony fisheye converter on the 16mm f/2.8. Thanks for stopping by, Rob
