His First Real Camera

I gave my 6 year old son Cameron his first real camera today. He had been asking me for one for the past 6 months and he was very clear he wanted one like mine with a proper viewfinder, so no point and shoots would do. I told him I would be keeping my eye out for a good deal on a camera for him and today was the day. Cameron is now the happy owner of a good old Canon 20D! A camera I have a lot of experience with, as I shot one for a very long time back in the 20D days. He loves the camera and I think it will suit him just fine while he dips his toes into the wonderful world of photography.

When I gave Cameron the camera he was super excited and happy! I quickly showed him the basics and he ran out the door to shoot photos. I caught up with him about 45 minutes later and he was still wondering around the block taking pictures. We passed by this tree and he ask me to hold his camera. He shot up the tree, I gave him is camera back and he started taking pictures of this dog that was sitting in the grass. I’d say he’s got the right idea about getting a unique shot. Who knows, we just might have another photographer in the family. 🙂

Cammy Hockey

My 6 year old son has started playing hockey this year. Well it’s more of a hockey camp, but it’s the first time he’s been on a proper rink with all the gear. He’s been hanging around the rink watching his older brother Joshua play for the past few years and he finally decided he wanted to give it a go. Yesterday was his second day on the ice and he loves it!

Note: I shot all these photos through the thick (puck scuffed) plexiglass, so the images aren’t as sharp and bang on as they would otherwise be.

Penny Boarding Honolulu

My son’s and I brought our Penny Boards to Honolulu and it was the best thing ever. We used those boards everyday and I especially loved it because at night I would skate around taking pictures and I could cover a lot more ground than I would if I was just walking. Anyhow, here are a few pictures of us on the boards.

Where Have I Been?

As you may know from my pervious blog posts, I was recently in Hawaii. As you may also know I haven’t been blogging a ton lately. It was with great surprise that I discovered I haven’t shared any of the photos I shot in Hawaii other than the wedding photos!

My precious Instagram account (@RobMoses) has been taking all my time and attention and left nothing for my poor blog. That is all about to change, well at least I am going to give it a good try haha. First I just need to start with massive game of catch up. I have shot so many photos over the summer and only shared a handful of them here. Moving forward I am going to make the blog more of priority.

Kicking things back off here with a picture my son Cameron enjoying the view from our room in Honolulu.

A Shot with Joshua

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-eos-6d-70-200mm-f4-isIt’s not often I get to have a picture with my son Joshua. You would think I have tons, but unfortunately I don’t! I have decided that is all going to change and I am going to make more of an effort to get in pictures with my children. They grow so fast and it seems like I barely have any pictures of me with them. Here’s to a good start. 🙂

My son Cameron and I took a walk to the store the other day and on our way there I shot this photo. I think next time I’ll bring a tripod and hop in the picture with him. 🙂

On The Railing

sony-a850-minolta-100mm-f2-8-macro-rob-moses-exif-dataI was out for a walk around the neighbourhood with my son Joshua yesterday evening. I wanted to shoot a photo with my Minolta 100mm lens and I figured I’d find something to shoot a long the way. When we got to the spot in the picture, my son suggested I just take a picture of him. I’m glad he made the suggestion, because I love how the photo turned out.

Boys 1st Day of School

rob-moses-exif-data-sony-a850-minolta-50mm-1-4Another school year has started for my boys! This is Cameron’s (black sweater) first year at Stanley Jones Elementary. Cam has been looking forward to joining his brother Joshua, who has started the 2nd grade today. I love taking the boys to school on their first day, but this day was extra special since it is Cam’s first day of elementary. Seeing them both off together was really fun and I am looking forward to many more fun days to come.

Lake Louise

exif data rob moses canon 6d 24-105mm ISMy family and I took a trip out to Lake Louise this past weekend. The weather was a little spotty and strange. One moment it would be raining, the next sunny and next again sun and rain! It never started pouring really hard, so that was nice. I spotted this canoe with a large Canadian flag on it and shot this photo. I wish the flag was a little more straight, but I guess like this it shows a little more realism. Anyhow, I thought the canoe and flag made for a nice foreground to the beautiful landscape in the back.

The Instagram picture is of my son shooting a photo on this hike we did. I took that picture with my iPhone and I really like how it turned out. Pretty easy to get a good shot out there I guess :).

Boat House Wedding: Katherine & Randy

I shot another short and sweet wedding last weekend. I met up with Katherine and Randy downtown on Sunday morning. As soon as everyone arrived to our first location it was straight to business! With less than an hour to shoot photos there was no time for a ton of set up and take down, mingling and mangling  or finding legal parking for that matter haha. But since we all knew the score everyone didn’t seem to mind moving a long and being efficient with our time. It’s not often I get to shoot wedding photos downtown and we ended up spending most of our time in this one alley. One friendly guy stuck his head out of a window at one point and said he had seen a ton of photo shoots this alley before, but never a wedding, perfect!

After we wrapped up our photo shoot downtown we headed out to The Lake House at Lake Bonavista. The venue is beautiful, however we did not have any access to the lake for photos, but the view was nice. (I figured I better mention that to answer the inevitable questions as to why there are not photos by the water.) The ceremony was great and everyone at the wedding clearly had a wonderful time. Every person I had the pleasure of talking to couldn’t have been nicer, the bride and groom included! Thanks for having me be a part of your special day Katherine & Randy :D.

Vacation in Mexico

I just spent a week in Mexico with my family. My wife and two children arrived in Cancun a day before the rest of the family arrived. So we spend a night in a hotel in what seemed to be a little more local (less touristy) part of the city. The next day when other people started arriving we headed to our restort about and hour south of Cancun at a place I believe was called Puerto Aventura.

The crew consisted of My family, my wife’s parents, my 2 sister in-laws and their boyfriends. Everyone had fun and there is just to many stories to write here. This post is just a bunch of pictures from my phone or GoPro (except for the funny family pic). I will be posting proper photos over the next few weeks.

Happy Christmas

exif data rob moses canon 6d 50mm 1.4That’s what it’s all about right here! Seeing these boys so happy on Christmas morning makes the lead up to the date all worthwhile. Toy research, long lines and half hour parking lot escapes all fade pretty fast when watching these boys experience the magic of Christmas. I can’t wait till next year already! ;).

While my son Cameron and I where up in Edmonton the other week we decided to swing by the West Edmonton Mall to hit the arcade. Cameron ripped through about $35 pretty quick haha. He definitely had a good time though :).
