Back to School Brothers

Kids went back to school today! They were both really excited, more excited than I have ever seen them actually. I’m so happy they were so excited to go back, because they didn’t get a full year last year. They started a little late in the year at a new school and then the year …

Quiet by The Creek

A few days ago my son Cameron and I were on a bike ride and we dipped into this wooded area to do a little photo location scouting. We found this spot, but at first nothing came to me, I just knew I loved the location. After I gave it some more though later that …

Fun Bridge

I love this little bridge! Even though it’s rather short, it is so fun to ride your bike over. The setting around the bridge also helps as the ambiance is near perfect. If your coming from downtown you have to ride through a tunnel first. Once your up on the bridge you are greeted with …

Kelowna Summer Heat

It’s been hot days in Kelowna lately. I’m not complaining though because at least when it’s nice and sunny outside it kind of draws you out, at least it does for me. When it’s super nice I want to be out there doing stuff. However, once the heat starts hitting that 30C/90F mark your options …

The Lights at Night

I shot a photo from this exact spot a couple weeks ago (see that picture here). At the time I didn’t have any longer lenses with me and I thought I’d like to get a shot zoomed in a little closer to this building. All the lights on he building look so nice at night …

Lots of Water

Well there doesn’t seem to be any shortage or whatever around here. I honestly don’t know what the story is with this water coming up out of the ground at the park by my house. I thought it was an odd scene and worth a picture. As for the other picture, well I just shot …

Good Night Kelowna

This is a view of Ellis Street downtown in Kelowna. I had the idea for this picture when I was driving down this street one day. When I was thinking about this photo I pictured a lot more apartment lights on. I guess most people were already asleep or they were out? Either way the …

This Rock

I have walked by this rock many times because it is at a dog beach I take my dog too. I don’t think I gave it a whole lot of attention every other time I walked by it. However this time I was looking for a picture. I wanted the water and mountains in the …

Post Time

Lately I’ve been posting at odd times. Mid morning has probably been a trend for me lately as I haven’t been to keen to do my blogging at night like I used to. I’m not even sure it matters, but for some reason I can’t help but think I having it ready to go the …

Test Shot

This was just a test shot I took the other night. I’m thinking I will use this location for a portrait shoot. I think it’d be cool to have someone leaning on that railing on the right side the frame. With a person there I’d change up the composition a little, but it would be …

Waiting

I wanted to take a picture like this, but I didn’t have the location. I knew I wanted some lights in the background and I needed some kind of street light to hit me in the front. I drove and walked around Kelowna for about 2 hours before I found this spot. I tried a …

All The Lights

I had drove by this place a few times and I knew right away that I was going to go back one night and shoot a photo. I love all the lights on the sign and the strings of lights above the deck. These type of lights always look good in long exposures. The place …

Big Hike Day

Last week we had some family in town so we decided to take a what I though was going to be a little hike. Turns out this was in fact a big hike! Of course it was so sunny and hot going up, but by the time we got to the top it was pretty …
