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 …

Sony a7ii & Canon 50mm 1.2

I recently got a grip for my Sony a7ii. The grip is an aftermarket brand called Vello. The grip makes holding onto this camera feel way better and I am sure because of it I will reach for this camera more often than I do. The lens I have on the camera is a Canon …

A Burning Tower

I shot this photo back in February and kind of forgot about it. I was driving home one day and noticed the Calgary tower was lit up, so I made a stop off at Tom Campbell’s hill and shot this. I used a Sony a7ii with a Canon FD 80-200mm f4 lens. Amazingly, I shot …

Melissa for Coffee

This is Melissa, she is one of the realtors I work with. Yesterday I heard her say she was heading to a coffee shop by our office, so I cased her down so I could get a picture of her. She didn’t want to have her picture taken since I didn’t give her any warning, …

Night Over Water

Kind of a random shot here. I took this picture one night back in October. The street that runs a long the river is quite nice in the summer, but I have yet to get a good shot of it. Maybe this summer I’ll get a good picture. This long exposure will have to do …

Arcade Time!

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 :). Thanks for stopping by, Rob

Hipster Camera on The Hip

I had the idea for this shot for one reason, to show off the cool looking Canon A-1. I think the A1 looks extra cool with the grip attached to it, so I was thinking of how I could get a good picture with the camera being the main focal point and not just have …

4th Street Lights

The lights that line 4th Street in Calgary are wonderful at night. I wish all the streets looked like this. For this shot I had waited till some cars were waiting for the light to change, that way the street wouldn’t just be streaks of light. When shooting long exposures on the street it’s hard …

Pre-Focus Run

I like getting pictures of people running from this part of the city. The skyline background just does it for me somehow. On this day I posed a bit of challenge to myself. I wanted to get a shot of someone running, well, , , a woman running, because people like pictures of women running …

Cammy – Manual Focus

Camera: Sony A7R & Canon FD 85mm f/1.8 ~ Settings: f/1.8 – 1/1600th – ISO 100 Yesterday evening my son Cammy and I went for a little bike ride around the block and I shot this photo of him. I took the picture with a Sony A7R with a 1970’s Canon FD 85mm f/1.8 manual …

Canon A-1

I was bored the other night so I decided to do a little product style photography. This old A-1 is sitting on my desk in my office/basement studio, so I just grabbed it and took this picture. For lighting I had 2 Canon 550EX Speedlites shot through umbrellas and one LED light pointing at the lens …

These Ironmen

I was hanging out with my 2 little buddies today and it’s been raining out, so we were stuck inside. At first I was just taking pictures of these Ironman masks, then I thought I’d get these guys to help me out for a minute and put them on for me. I’m glad I did, …

Let’s Get Personal

Camera: Samsung NX100 with Canon FD 50mm 1.4 – Setting: 1/800th // f1.4 // ISO 100 I suppose this will be a rather personal post, as there is really no other reason I could think to post this picture haha. This is the coffee cup I start almost all of my mornings with. It’s a …
