BMX Riders Be Crazy!

About a month ago I took my 2 sons up to Edmonton to check out a skateboard & BMX contest. I grew up skateboarding, so while I was having fun watching the skaters, my sons were much more interested in the BMX’ers and I don’t blame them. These guys are crazy! The high flying flips …

More Buildings & Lights

The Calgary skyline is forever changing. There is a new building going up that is beside the bright one in the middle that is going to be awesome. The new building kind of turns as it goes up. I’m sure that’s going to be a wonderful building to get ultra wide angle shots of. There …

1st Day of School

Well my 2 boys are off to school again! (1st grade & 3rd grade). It’s always fun taking the kids to their first day of school. I couldn’t get these guys to stay still for a picture together though! They were too excited to get to their friends. Next year I’ll plan that part a …

Hey Guy!

Here is another Fujifilm X-T2 straight out of camera shot (no edits). This guy was parked here and taking pictures looking the other direction. I wanted to get a picture with his face in it, so I yelled “Hey Guy!” haha. Judging by the direction of his eyes he must have thought it was someone …

Mexican Stars & Streets

I shot this one last year while I was staying at some resort between Cancun and Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. I didn’t have a tripod with me at the time so I couldn’t get the composition exactly how I would have liked it. I just rested my camera on a ledge and shot a long …

Stranger in the Grass

I was at one of my favourite skyline view locations in Calgary getting a shot of the city yesterday. While I was there I noticed this man sitting in the grass reading. It looked like the scene out of a movie or something, so I thought it might make a good picture. I walked up …

Happy Cycling

I was walking down the street when I noticed the bright red fire truck heading my way. Then the bright and happy cyclist caught my eye. Like an old west gun slinger, I whipped my camera in front of my face and snapped this photo. People like this make the world a better place and …

Summer Cycle

Calgary has some nice biking paths around the city. There are some nice views and great places to stop along the way. I personally wouldn’t be caught cruising around on the paths right now as it is currently 16°F out and I’m sure I’d freeze to death and if that didn’t kill me I’d surely …

Canon vs Sony 70-200mm

I have been shooting a decent amount with my Sony a7R these days and I have run into some auto focus speed issues along the way. I have found that Sony’s hit rate of moving subjects is noticeably lower than what I have been used to with my Canon gear. This issue rang especially true …

People in Beaulieu Gardens

The weather has been getting pretty nice around Calgary these days and the people are getting out there and enjoying it! When the people come out, so do I ;). Gotta get them street shots while the street shootings hot! For these shots I just grabbed nice little seat for my self on the grass, …

Biking Action

Camera: Canon 6D & 50mm ~ Settings: f/2.2 – 1/3200th – ISO 100 These are a couple of pictures I took last summer of my father in-law during his biking part in the Penticton, BC triathlon. If it was me, I’d be cruising on in to the finish line about 10 hours after the race ended lol. Big …

Winter or Summer ?

The weather has gone completely INSANE in Calgary the last few days. I have been waking up to WINTER! Yet it is still 100% summer! I have experienced the most awful weather since moving here haha, but I have yet to snap and pack my bags to head back to the coast. I’m sure that …
