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.

Brittany & Ben

I did an engagement shoot with Brittany & Ben last weekend. The weather was calling for rain and Brittany & Ben are in town from England and were leaving the next day, so rescheduling the shoot wasn’t exactly an option. Lucky for us the rain let up for pretty much the whole shoot. Thanks for that sky! I had so much fun with these two. Many laughs were had and we got some cool shots! Fingers crossed for better weather during the wedding next year, but either way I know we’ll have a good time and get some good pictures :).

Rugby Wedding: Lindsay & Vinny

Clearly Lindsay and Vinny both love Rugby! Oh and their cute dog, who played a big part in their wedding. When I first met with Lindsay and Vinny they told me they wanted to do some type of Ruby wedding shots and right away I was excited, because I had never done any wedding shots like that and I knew it would be fun. When wedding time came around it wasn’t often I didn’t see that ruby ball kicking around and their dog was definitely there for everything too. Lindsay and Vinny were super fun and easy to work with. Their wedding party and parents were a joy to be around and I think we all had a wonderful time together!

Note: The two people who caught the bouquet and garter belt(it was on the ball) are a couple. 🙂

Thanks for a fun wedding Lindsay & Vinny!

 

Little Skateboarder – Stills & Video

On Saturday afternoon my 6 year old son Cameron and I went for a little skate downtown. We were heading to the very popular Peace Bridge to get a shot of Cameron on his skateboard in the middle of the bridge. However, when we got there the wind was blowing like crazy and it was kind of a bad scene. We decided to hit the streets in search of a new spot to shoot a photo. We found a spot with smooth cement, places to leave our gear and set up our cameras with very little interruption from passerbyers.

Not only did we shoot photos, but we were also rolling video on the whole thing for my vlog. I didn’t realize how many times I had Cam push off on his skateboard for the photo until I was going over the video footage at home. I didn’t count how many times he did it, but it was a at least 30 times! For a 6 year old to have that kind of patience on a photo shoot is amazing. I also noticed he took direction very well. I was super impressed by all of this at the time, but even more so after the fact. I think he’d make a good little actor or model if he wanted to go down that road. For now I think we’ll just stick to the skateboarding though ;).

Calgary Wedding Indoors: Madiha & Raheel

exif-data-rob-moses-settings-canon-5d-mark-iii-ef-28-70mm-f2-8-lAs you can imagine a wedding in Calgary in February is going to be indoors for the most part. Mariah and Raheel’s wedding was no exception, well except for this one picture of course! haha. We pretty much just ran out the back door of the hotel, shot this photo and ran back in! The rest of the wedding was held inside the hotel. This wedding was a short one for me, but it was 100 miles and hour the whole time!

When you only got so much time to get your shots there is a lot of quick shooting invovled and you tend to move around a little fast than you might normally go. At this wedding there wasn’t a moment I wasn’t taking pictures. Ok well, I did stop for 5 minutes to enjoy some of the amazing indian food! I’m not a crazy person after all, if there is indian food around you can bet I’ll be hold’n down a plate with the best of them ;). So after my blazing fast meal it was back to the shooting! Indian weddings are always so much fun, I didn’t get to stick around this one for the partying, but hopefully next time :).

Best Photographer Finalist

So last month I got an email that said (among other things) “You were recommended for the Calgary Event Awards as an amazing event photographer”, I’ll leave out all the other boring stuff, but that line pretty much says it all. Anything like that is always nice to hear, so with that email I tossed my hat in the ring. Then a week or so later I got another email that read “Calgary Event Awards 2017 – Finalists” and then “Congratulations!” blah, blah, blah. Nice! I guess some other people kinda like what I do too. So as it turns out I’m up for Best Photographer and it’s between two other photographers and myself. The awards are on March 2nd, so I’ll be sure and let you guys know if I win or not. 🙂

5 Year Old Violet

Time flies when you’re having fun. I took pictures of Violet for her 2nd, 3rd, 4th and now 5th birthday! When her mom Amanda texted me about doing the photos I could hardly believe it had already been another year! I still can’t believe it. Anyhow, Violet was a super fun as she always is and was more chatty and funny than last year. Seeing how Violet has changed over the years has been amazing and having the pleasure to take her picture each time has been an honour. Thanks for hanging with me you two! 😉

All photos shot with a Canon 5D Mark iii with a 50mm 1.4 & 135L

These 3 boys have been skateboarding around together for the past couple of years. This year they have been on their boards more than ever. I have found myself skating around the neighbourhood with them and remembering my own childhood of skateboarding. I thought I better get a picture of the original squad together before they grow up even more!

From left to right is my sons Cameron and Joshua and their best pal Leo.

Gingerbread Mouse

exif data rob moses sony a7ii 55mm 1.8 ziessI dropped in on the Marriott hotel on the weekend to grab a coffee from the Starbucks in there. As soon as I entered the hotel I saw this wonderful Gingerbread town. This little mouse who was just chill’n on a bridge especially caught my eye, so I took a picture of him and went on my way. 🙂

Doggie from a Walk

rob moses exif data canon t2i tamron 17-50mmOn Sunday I went to this cool Instagram meet up put on by @YYCinstameets. Everyone met up by the store down the street from my house and then we all went on a photo walk around my neighbourhood. It was pretty cool! This cute little doggy came along for the trip and I snapped this shot of him at the end of the walk.

Since this was an Instagram thing I figured I’d just share my Instagram picture from the day rather than a bunch of pictures here :). If your on Instagram, give me a follow and I’ll follow you back!

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 :).

My son Cameron and I took a little trip up to Edmonton, Alberta this past weekend. It was a rather rainy and foggy day in Edmonton yesterday and it was a little chilly, so we didn’t get out for many pictures. This shot was the last one I took before we hopped in our car and headed back to Calgary. I love Edmonton and hope to go back again soon! There are so many pictures I want to take there.

Feiyu G4 Gimbal Stick vs Handheld Video

Yesterday I shot a quick video comparison of me walking with a Feiyu Tech G4 Gimbal Stick vs Handheld video shooting. I shot the video with a GoPro Hero 4 Silver. I’d say the results were pretty straight forward, but let me know what you think.
