Buildings Over Here

I usually shoot photos of Calgary from the other side of town, because I think it looks nicer over there. From time to time I feel the need to shake things up a bit, so I grabbed this shot from the south side on my way home yesterday. Thanks for stopping by, Rob

Flashy Horse

I have wanted to shoot this photo for a while now. This little public park is at one of the train stations downtown. One day when I got off the train at this stop I was checking out these iron art pieces. The idea for this photo came to me soon after that visit. The …

Doable Winter

We are finally having some winter weather I can actually deal with in Calgary! It has been around 7C (44F) mark for the past couple weeks and it is only getting warmer in the forecast! I don’t know how long it can stay like this, but I’ll take whatever I can get. The warm weather …

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 …

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 …

Sunset City

Camera: Nikon D300s & 100mm f/2.8 AIS ~ Settings: f/16 – 1/250th – ISO 200 Last weekend I was at my local Starbucks enjoying a coffee and testing out a new photo editing app (Pixelmator, verdict is still out). Once my editing time was up / coffee was done, I started walking home. When I got to …

Uninterested Cat

The night before last I tried getting a picture of my other cat, but he wasn’t having any of it! I couldn’t even get the other cat to look in my general direction haha.  So last night  I decided to give it another go with my other cat “Panda Bear”. This guy wasn’t exactly into …

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 …

Train Into The City

I shot this photo last night from SAIT (a local college). I got there a bit early and tried a few shots while it was lighter out, but I knew waiting till the sun when down more would give a much better effect. Once the sun went down more I waited for a train to go …

Happy Cammy

Yesterday I decided it was a good day to take a picture of my younger son Cammy. He is always a good sport when it comes to getting his picture taken, so this shot didn’t take to long :). The picture on the right just shows the set up I used for this photo. I …

3 Year Old Violet

I did a shoot with Violet and her mom last year for her 2nd birthday and I had the pleasure of another shoot for her 3rd birthday! 🙂 The first few shots I used a reflector because the sun was blaring. The reflector really has a nice bit of light that I like a lot …

Drunk Girl Shakes Up My Pic

Last night I decided to go out and get some night shots of this bridge that is near my house. As I arrived I noticed a few sketchy looking people milling about, but they ended up going on their way, so I set up my tripod and camera. I set my camera to a 30 …
