On The Railing

I 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 …

4 Year Old Violet

This is the 3rd photo shoot I have done with Violet and her mom. Violet is about to turn 4 years old and for the past couple of birthdays we have done a photo shoot. It’s so fun to see her over the years and watch how she has changed. This year Violet was easier …

Soccer Time!

My 6 year old son Joshua has started playing organized soccer this year and he had his 2nd game yesterday. He is playing for the Bridgeland Riverside team (Bridgeland Bears). They only got their uniforms at the last practice, so I thought it was a good time to shoot a few photos. The kids are …

Timeless Fun

I’m sure most of us have done this before as a child and some of us as adults. Not exactly sure why dragging a stick a long a fence is so fun for a child, but it definitely falls into the timeless category in my book. This picture is of my son Cameron when we …

Floating Around in the Fog

Camera: Canon 5D mark iii & 16-35L ii at 35mm ~ Settings: f/2.8 – 1/400th – ISO 2500 It has been rather foggy around Calgary these days. Yesterday I decided to take a picture of myself on the path in front of my house. My original idea was to shoot a photo of me just …

Scattered Sky

Camera: Canon 16-35L @ 35mm ~ Settings: f/18 – 1.3 seconds – ISO 800 Yesterday when I was on my way home I noticed the sky looked a little scattered. I thought it was worth stopping to grab a quick picture, so I did just that. I didn’t feel like dragging out my tripod and setting …

Joshua’s Christmas Concert

Last night my 5 year old son Joshua had his school (Stanley Jones Elementary) Christmas Concert. The lighting wasn’t exactly ideal, but the cuteness made up for it! :). Joshua is the taller boy on the right hand side with the Calgary Flames tie on. All except the last shot were taken with a 5D mark …

3 Buddies in the City

Yesterday my sons and I caught the train from our neighbourhood to one of the neighbouring areas to mix up our urban routine. Naturally I had my camera with me and shot a few photos through out the afternoon. Our original idea was to check out some candy stores I knew of in the area, however …

Sunset Over Calgary

I shot this on Tuesday evening off an overpass near my house. The previous day I was driving over said overpass at the exact same time I took this picture. As I crossed the overpass I saw right away what a great shot it could be, so I noted the time and came back the …

Cute House in Bridgeland

I was at the park the other day with my 2 boys and I noticed this cute little house across the street. This house is not a typical Calgary style house and that is part of what draws me to it. In a lot of Calgary neighbourhoods all the houses tend to look the same and …

Calgary North & The Rockies

I shot this photo a couple of days ago when I was out getting a skyline shot. I had been searching for a vantage point from the east side of town looking west and found a 6 or 7 story high parking garage. My first attempt at getting in the garage was unsuccessful, as the stairwell …

Big & Small

I was kicking around a park in my neighbourhood today with my little buddies and Cammy here decided he needed to take a little walk down these stairs. Some how I like pictures with big staircases in them so I quickly snapped a couple shots :).  I couldn’t decide what I liked better, the picture of …

Calgary Uptown Eastside

I shot this photo of Eastside Calgary last night. The look out where I took this picture is just a few blocks away from my house, so I figured rather than watch Seinfeld or Frasier for the millionth time, I’d go out and have some fun. Right after I had set up my camera and …
