The Mask

I was walking around San José del Cabo one night a few days ago. The streets at night around the town square are all lit up with these lights that criss cross the streets. The lights are strung along these little colourful flags and it creates this wonderful ambiance. As I was walking around enjoying …

Cam in Pandosy

My son Cameron and I went to Subway for lunch on the weekend. We just walked there from our hour in Pandosy (a neighbourhood here in Kelowna). Since I had my camera with me we just stopped for a couple pictures along the way. It’s always good to get pictures of the kids because they …

Someone I Met

I don’t remember exactly how it happened, but I randomly met this girl on the street in Kerrisdale. I was just walking around taking pictures and the next thing I know it was standing there having a conversation with this girl. I love these types of little moments you share with strangers on the street. …

Might as well stick Around

So after listening to the valuable information and points you guys gave me regarding either keeping my blog on WordPress or moving it, I have decided to just keep it here on WordPress. Making this general photography blog work with a wedding blog doesn’t really seem like something I can make work. I just don’t …

Minolta 50mm 1.2 vs Pentax 55mm 1.8

I have been shooting with my Minolta 50mm f/1.2 for a long time now. I have always known the short comings of the lens and had accepted the trade offs (like lack of sharpness wide open) for the f/1.2 speed. I have also had my Pentax 55mm f/1.8 for a long time, but haven’t shot …

Back To Fujifilm

I decided life would be better with a little Fujifilm back in my life. I picked up this Fujifilm X-T2 for a smoke’n deal from Vistek (a Canadian camera store) and I am so happy I did. If you have been a long time reader of this blog you know I have some experience with …

The Pick Up

So I’m picking up a leaf in this picture, but it was totally set up haha. Also, I was not planning on getting in front of the camera that day, so wardrobe was given zero thought. I prefocused using my manual focus Nikon Ai 50mm f/1.8 using a spot in the sand as an estimation …

She grows so fast!

I shot this photo a few weeks ago and I figured I’d better post it before she’s double the size! This little dog is growing at an incredible speed! I love her just how she is, but I wish she could stay a puppy for a little while longer. 😉 Shot on a Sony a7ii …

Parked for the winter

I parked the van in my garage last night and it barely fit. Lucky for me the previous owner of my house left these sandbags just sitting by the garage, so I put them in the back of the van and had my kids jump in there too. That extra weight was just enough too …

Juneau Eating Snow

The snow has been coming and going recently in Kelowna. Yesterday when I was shovelling the driveway I couldn’t help but notice Juneau having a ball in the snow. I figured this would be a good opportunity to take some pictures of her. When I got back out with my camera she would dig her …

What’s Your Name?

I shoot real estate photos from time to time and when I was living in Calgary I shot a lot of real estate photos. As you can image I have met my fair share of random cats and dogs. This cat in particular was quite striking to me and I couldn’t help but shoot a …

Sunset Light

Sunset light is so wonderful. I could have pointed my camera in just about any direction on this day and got a good picture. I decided to lay in the leaves and shoot something from the ground. I dont often shoot so low, but I think the leaves in the foreground add something nice to …
