Ramah – Sudan to Calgary

More People of Calgary Action!

The People of Calgary

I met this fellow on a popular pathway by the river near Edwothy Park. I had just arrived, got my stuff ready and he was the first person to walk in my direction. While he was walking towards me I noticed he was wearing headphones, so my first thought was to just let him pass by, but I made the split second decision to just walk over to him, get his attention and then tell him what I was up to. Right when I stopped him and he took off his head phones I could tell he was a nice guy. I told him what was up and he happily agreed to participate. Here is what Ramah had to say.

I haven’t posted any People of Calgary stuff here for quite a while, so here ya go ;).

The People of Calgary

I ran into Cecilia at one of my favourite photo spots in the city, Crescent Road at the top of McHugh Bluff Park. I had just arrived there and got all my stuff ready to go when I saw Cecilia walking towards me. I said to my self, “this girl looks like the prefect candidate”. I walked over to her and told her what I was up to and if she was interested in participating, clearly she was and I couldn’t have been happier. I love it when the first person I ask says yes :).

Joe – Checking Out Calgary

I haven’t shared anything from here in a while. 🙂

The People of Calgary

I was recently contacted by a lovely woman by the name of Shiva Jahanshah about about doing a little profile on me and this blog for her TV show (“Who’s Who”). Of course I said I would be up for such a thing and we made arrangements to meet. When we met we did a quick interview and then they filmed me doing my thing talking to Strangers. Joe was the first person I had asked and he agreed to do it! Right after I was done talking to Joe, Shiva did a quick wrap up with him for the show. Here is what Joe had to say :).

Madison – Calgary Makeup Artist

Another post from my People of Calgary project 🙂 Check it out!

The People of Calgary

One day not too long ago I was kicking around Instagram and I came across one of Madison’s pictures. That picture lead me to her feed and I started to follower her on Instagram. After seeing a bunch of great photos of her there, one day I commented that she should be on this site and if she would be interested in doing such a thing. To my delight she said she would! So after a few emails we sorted out a date and met up in MacKenzie Towne.

We met at the Second Cup coffee shop on High Street. I got there first and when Madison came in she ordered and then walked over to the table I was at. I got up to shaker her hand and she was going for the hug, it was kind of funny but it gets better. I thought, oh ok we’re…

Lara Presber – Calgary Fashion Designer

More of these people of Calgary 🙂

The People of Calgary

Last week I was kicking around twitter looking for Calgary fashion designers and I came across Lara’s profile. I followed her and we exchanged a few messages regarding her work and my photography. It wasn’t long before the idea to have her on this blog entered my mind. I told her about the project as best I could in 140 characters and she liked the idea and agreed to participate.

I met Lara at her studio downtown the following day. She’s got a great spot in an old row of buildings in a rather central location. When I arrived we hung out and chatted for a bit about Calgary and a few other random things. The conversation was easy and natural, so much in fact I had to interrupt the conversation to get the interview going before I had all the answers to my questions before I had the chance…

I met Greg (aka Jimmi Riggz) at the 10@10 hip hop night I went to last month. After Greg’s set was over he made is way over to the bar and my table wasn’t far off. So I jumped up started to chat with him and told him about this blog, to my surprise he said he had heard of it! I asked him if he would be up for a quick interview and he was down. My conversation with Greg had a lot of laughs which made it one of the most fun interviews to date :). Here’s what Greg AKA Jimmi Riggz had to say.

Amber Schinkel – Global TV News Anchor

Here is a post from another project I am currently doing 🙂

The People of Calgary

A couple weeks ago I was watching the morning news on Global TV and saw Amber anchoring the news as I so often do. I thought to my self it would be cool if she’d do the blog. So on a whim I decided to send her a message on twitter to see if she would be into it. To my pleasant surprise she was! I met Amber at a Starbucks and we hung out and had a little chat before we got going on the blog questions. She was extremely nice and couldn’t have been more sweet. I can see why Amber is where she currently is in her broadcasting career. Amber is clearly great at her job and really is just a good person and very nice to be around.

Thank you very much for taking the time to talk to me Amber! 😀
