More City

This is another angle from an evening a couple of weeks ago. I was hopping for a wicked sunset, but just got a bit of dusk haha. This picture is still alright. 🙂 Advertisements

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 …

Blue

This picture has got blue going on every where in it! I shot this photo on Saturday night off a bike path. I used the gorilla pod strapped onto a fence to shoot it. It is such a nice location to grab a seat and enjoy the view. No blue feelings here, just a beautiful …

Train Lights

This part of the train line is one of my favourite to ride on. Your pretty high up and there a is a lot to look at from the train on this bit. You pass directly over a skate park and you  have a nice view of the river, an inner city neighbourhood and the …

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 …

Bow River Night

I shot this one on Saturday night from underneath the Skipping Stone Bridge on St. Patricks Island (in Calgary). I was using my Fujifilm X-E1 with an old Canon FD mount Vivitar 28mm f/2 close focus lens. The camera and lens performed wonderfully together. This shot is straight out of the camera (other than a …

Fujifilm X-E1 & Canon 50mm 1.2

I picked up this Fujifilm X-E1 on consignment the other day when I was down at my local camera shop. The body was there for $250, so I thought why not. At that price you can’t really go wrong. The screen has some scratches on it, but that kind of thing doesn’t bother me. I …

Just Weeks before with Amy & Dwight

I went kicking around Princes Island Park with Amy & Dwight the other day to shoot some engagement photos. Funny thing about this photo session is it was only a few weeks away from the actual wedding! Not exactly typical, but who cares ;). We really lucked out with the weather because the days leading …

Early Winter

Winter has hit a little early in Calgary this year! I decided to head out and take a look around the city last night and see how it looked. It was pretty foggy out and I think the fog really added something nice to the picture. It looks quiet to me, and it was. I guess …

Secluded Peace

Taking pictures of a city a night has a special kind of magic to it. I find this especially true when you are in a dark and secluded place like I was for this shot. My location was completely quiet and I was very much alone. Peaceful, relaxing and exciting all at the same time. I …

Rings of Fire

Last night my friend Nathan and I took the Skipping Stone Bridge in Calgary with a chain and some steel wool. Nathan had wanted to shoot some of these type of photos for about a year and we finally decided to get out and do it. We would both set up our cameras and get …

Island Among Towers

Here is a shot of the Calgary skyline with a nice view of Princes Island up front. Princes Island is a wonderful city park, with lots of trees, trails, bridges and plenty of open spaces to enjoy a picnic or just hang out with a bit of nature in the city. The modern Calgary skyline …
