The Empress Hotel 35

This hotel in Victoria, British Columbia is outstanding! I love old buildings and this one does not disappoint. Normally I would have shot photos of this place a little wider than the 35mm I was shooting, but I only brought my Fujifilm x100T (with a fixed 35mm lens) with me to Victoria so 35 was …

Peaceful City View

There is something about city shots at night that I love. Everything looks so peaceful, but you know the city is alive. These are the types of views I can stare at for hours. I cant say I’ve ever lived in a house or an apartment with a real skyline view before, but I’d image …

Watching The Lights

This massive Christmas tree of lights is so great! I’ve driven by it so many times since I moved to Kelowna, but this was actually the first time I went up close to it. I’ve been meaning to shoot a photo of this light tree for a couple years now, so I’m happy I finally …

Finding Inspiration in Kelowna

I was out shooting a few photos last night in Kelowna. I haven’t been going out at night as much as I used to. I usually blame my lack of going out on there not being enough city for me to get excited about here. However, I found last night that it doesn’t even matter …

Joshua Basketball

Some of you long time visitors to this blog will probably remember my son Joshua playing hockey for so many years. Sadly Joshua decided he wanted to quit playing hockey and play basketball. Of course I was sad about him quitting hockey because I loved watching him play and I just love the game in …

Kodak Gold in The Park

Here are some of the photos from that last video I posted. This little park is so wonderful. I think the building is some type of cafe or something, I’ve never actually been in there. Come to think of it I should check that out sometime. I don’t often go to this park because they …

Nikon F90X Film Camera Review

In this video I review of one of my favourite film cameras, the Nikon F90X with the 50mm f/1.4D lens. I shot a roll of expired Kodak Max 400 35mm film for this review. Since I have shot with this camera a lot and I already know what kind of pictures I can get out …

Oilers Self Portrait

I have been setting up a studio in my house for the past little while. I finally got most of it together just in time to shoot a quick self portrait for the start of the Edmonton Oilers season. I didn’t spend too much time on this photo because I just got the studio together …

Leica M3 Videos

I recently got a Leica M3 rangefinder camera. I’ve been shooting with it the past month and getting to know the camera. I’ve loved nearly every moment I’ve had this camera in my hand. It’s fun to use and it just plain looks cool. Loading film into this camera is not like any other camera. …

Cam in Pandosy

My son Cameron and I went to Subway for lunch on the weekend. We just walked there from our hour in Pandosy (a neighbourhood here in Kelowna). Since I had my camera with me we just stopped for a couple pictures along the way. It’s always good to get pictures of the kids because they …

Pentax Espio Mini

I picked up this beautiful little point & shoot film camera and walked around the Olympic Village in Vancouver to test it out. I shot a bunch of different type of photos and I think I got a good read on what the camera can do and how it performs. I was shooting Kodak Gold …

This guy again

My buddy Aaron out here getting in front of the camera again for me. He’s good at that sort of thing. It’s always nice when your friends like having their picture taken, because I always want to take them. 😉 Thanks for stopping by, Rob

Better With a Person

I was walking around Granville Island when this beautiful art piece caught my eye. I stopped and shot a photo with this exact composition. Immediately after I shot the photo I thought to myself, “this picture would be a lot better if there was a person walking down the walkway”. So I stood there in …
