In Camera City View

I shot this photo on Friday night from Rotary Park in Calgary. The camera in the picture is my Mamiya 645 1000s with a 80mm f/1.9. I had the camera set up on a tripod and had another tripod set up higher over the pictured camera. I shot this photo with a Sony A7R with …

Abandoned House Mannequin

Last weekend a friend of mine and I went out to High River, Alberta to check out this abandoned neighbourhood. The whole neighbourhood was built on in a flood zone and of course it had been flooded. The province(state) decided the residence could no longer live there so they bought everyone out. Anyhow, we walked around …

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 …

Lake of the Stars

Last thursday night I took a little trip to the mountains in and effort to escape the city lights. With me being an urban type of guy, this is some what out of character for me. However, I do enjoy a bit of fresh air and a starry sky from time to time and I have …

Modern Lights

I like when modern buildings have these kind of cool lights on them. Makes the city look futuristic 🙂 Camera: Canon 6D & 15mm 2.8 Fisheye ~ Settings: f/22 – 30 seconds – ISO 200 Thanks for stopping by, Rob

Old Camera & Older Lens

If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter than you might already know I got my hands on an old Nikon D70 with a Sigma 10-20mm lens for $75! I have been playing around with it lately just for fun and have gotten some good pictures with it. I put my old 1970’s 50mm 1.4 …

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 …

The Nikon DF or Nikkormat

With the release of the rumoured retro looking Nikon DF full frame DSLR (16mp) comes some big decisions for people who love the look and feel of the old school film SLR’s of the 60’s & 70’s. For most people, I believe the main decision will be, “Do I feel like spending the $2,750.  price …

Calgary Night Skyline

I went out to shoot a few photos last night and got some skyline shots. I shot these photos from Crescent Road in Crescent Heights. That street is probably my favourite street in city. The view you get while driving or walking on Crescent Road is amazing the whole way. If your ever in Calgary a …

My 5D Mark iii & 1D Mark iiN

A lot of people get hung up on having the latest and greatest of gear in the hopes that the camera will make them a better photographer. This does have a little bit of truth to it, but as far as camera bodies go, I don’t believe that truth carries much weight. Lenses is a …
