Fave Apartment Building

This is my favourite apartment building in Calgary. A wonderful example of pre-war one architecture that is very hard to come by in this modern city. Camera: Nikon D300s & Sigma 10-20mm @10mm – Settings: f/8 – 30 seconds – ISO 200 Camera: Nikon D300s & Sigma 10-20mm @16mm – Settings: f/16 – 30 seconds …

People On Their Way Home

Yesterday afternoon I was out getting some stock video shots and it started to lightly rain, so I packed up and started heading home. On my way to my car the rain kind of stopped, so I decided to shoot a few photos of people on their way home from work. These pictures were taken …

Undercover in Calgary

On Saturday night a friend of mine and I went out to shoot some photos. It started ranging like crazy so we had to try to keep shooting under overpasses and covered areas, thankfully there are loads of these to choose from in Calgary. It eventually stopped raining, which allowed me to get the first …

Walking High in the Sky

I took this picture at the Calgary Tower. On the observation deck they have a glass floored area that hangs over the side of the tower. My son’s were  walking around and enjoying the view and I snapped this picture. Camera: Canon 6D & 24-105L @75mm ~ Settings: f/11 – 1/500th – ISO 400 Thanks …

Calgary By The River

The river that runs through Calgary is rather low now and there was a massive area for me to walk out on to get this picture. It was just me and a couple Canadian Geese hanging out shooting photos :). I actually got a picture with those guys in it, but I’ll post that one another day …

Ridiculously Wide!

I rarely shoot this wide because it looks like all the buildings are falling into each other haha. However, if you want all the buildings in one shot so close, there isn’t much choice. I shot this one in Chinatown in Calgary, Alberta Canada. Camera: Canon 5D mark iii & 16-35L @16mm ~ Settings: 1/160th …

A Drivers City

In Calgary you must have car! I think this picture kind of shows that :). I had wanted to take this picture for well over a year now. I used to drive past here over one of those overpasses everyday and I would always want to get this picture, but it wasn’t easy. There is …

Old Bike in The Snow

Well believe it or not it is snowing in Calgary as I write this, so I figured why not post one last wintery picture haha. This was from a couple of months ago and I hope I don’t see a scene like this for quite a while! Camera: Canon 5D mark iii & 50mm 1.4 …

Peace Bridge People

I drive by this bridge pedestrian bridge all the time. Yesterday I decided to make a quick stop on my way home and grab a couple shots. You can’t park on the bridge side, so I parked on the other side and used a 70-200mm lens. It is still rather cold in Calgary, so I …

My Random Car

This is just a random snapshot I took of my car one evening when I was out for a skyline shot. It is a rather noisy picture, so I figured it would be salvageable in black and white :). Camera: Canon 5D mark iii & 16-35L @35 ~ Settings: 1/40th – f/5.6 ISO 4000 Thanks …

The Look

I was downtown not to long ago and I saw this guy shooting some video of a sign. I walked over and took a picture of him, then he noticed I was beside him pointing a camera at him and when he looked at me he had this hilarious look on his face! LOL. It …

Pipe Smoke’n Old Guy

I was walking down the street and noticed this old guy puff’n on his pipe outside of a bar. I immediately pictured the shot in black and white and thought it might be half decent. So I walked up to him and asked if I could take his picture, he nodded, put his pipe in …

Snow Covered Streets

I walked around the corner on to this street in Calgary and immediately saw the guy snow blowing the train station platform. Naturally with all the snow blowing around my first instinct was to put my lens cap on, and I did. Then I noticed this girl walking up the street too. I quickly removed …
