Aurora

So we got some family in town visiting from Edmonton and BC. My sister in-law brought her friend Aurora along. We were all hanging out talking yesterday and I thought I might as well get a picture of Aurora. We just stepped in front of my house and I shot the photos with natural light.

I used two cameras, the fist picture I took with my D800E and my Sigma 85mm 1.4. The 2nd shot I took with my Sony a7R with a old manual focus Nikon 50mm 1.8. I edited both photo quite differently, the first is more of what I always do and the second a little more of a dull/darker style. Anyhow, I like them both and it’s always nice to take pictures of a new face.

An Old Friend

This is a dear old friend of mine from back in the day! Her name is Geraldine and we used to kick around Vancouver together. Sadly we have both since moved on to different cities. As you probably know I am in Calgary and Geraldine is surprisingly not far off up in Edmonton! Anyhow, we met up for lunch yesterday here in Calgary while she was passing through on her way to Canmore. It’s always fun catching up with old friends and what a better way to remember new memories but with a picture, so I took some. 😉

Out in These Streets

I was out kicking around Calgary last night shooting some photos. It wasn’t a particularly nice night for it, because the sky was rather dark, but there were people out and the atmosphere of the city made up for the dark skies. I met 4 different people and we all followed each other on Instagram. The first picture is one of those people. Big up to everyone down to meet someone new on the city streets at night. 🙂

Stacey & Benn Back Then

These photos are of Stacey and Benn and I shot them last month. Obviously the lovely couple has already received their photos, but I just couldn’t find the time to get them up here. Anyhow, I had such a good time with these two and even though the weather was being super crazy the night we shot photos everyone still had fun and we got some good shots. The light was constantly changing and the wind was defiantly blowing and that makes for a some what difficult shoot. Even though the weather wasn’t perfect, I fun times of the shoot were! 🙂

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 :).

A Walk On The Beach

My 8 year old son shot this photo of my wife and I walking on the beach in Cancun Mexico this past winter. I edited the photo for him, but he did a good job with the rest. 🙂

Penticton Creek

I just happened to be walking by this creek at just the right time it seemed. I saw the spot where I took this picture from the corner of my eye while I was walking by with my family. I told my family to keep going and I would catch up and ran over to the creek. I shot a few photos and just as I was about leave I saw this girl walking onto the bridge. I quickly whipped my camera back up and snapped the photo. It was a lucky break that she came walking along with her dog, because the photo with an empty bridge is just not the same.

Just Weeks before with Amy & Dwight

I went kicking around Princes Island Park with Amy & Dwight the other day to shoot some engagement photos. Funny thing about this photo session is it was only a few weeks away from the actual wedding! Not exactly typical, but who cares ;). We really lucked out with the weather because the days leading up to the shoot were really ugly out and then on the day the sun was shinning and it was sweater weather. Good weather, good people and a good location is a recipe for fun and that’s what happened.

I also shot a bit of video along the way too and have added it here if your into that sort of thing.

I put this video together for the intro page on my YouTube channel (youtube.com/RobMoses). I thought I might as well share it here too. If you like that kinda thing subscribe to my channel and keep in touch. 😉

Vlog: Calgary Event Awards

If you caught my post from a couple of weeks back (here), you know I was up for Best Photographer at the Calgary Event Awards. Instead of packing a camera along for the ride as I normally would, I decided I would shoot some video for my vlog instead. Watch the video and see how it all went down. It was a fun night and I hope to be back again soon!

Thanks for stopping by, Rob

Note: If you haven’t noticed I have added a vlog page here (found on the main menu). I will add vlogs as I make them. I don’t have any set days that I will be posting them yet, but they should be once a week at the very least. If your into that sort of thing you can just subscribe to my youtube channel at YouTube.com/RobMoses.

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. 🙂

Our Cancun Trip

rob-moses-exif-data-sony-a7ii-24-70mmSo as you may already know my family and I took a trip to Cancun Mexico recently. As you can imagine I took a lot of pictures. I will be sharing some of the Mexico pictures on here over the next little while, but I though I’d drop a bunch at once right now to give you an idea of how the trip looked. It was warm, fun and I’m looking forward to the next one!
