Jawny

I met up with an old friend of mine last night and of course I just had to shoot a few photos of the guy. Catching up with your friends is always fun and taking pictures of people is too. Definitely fun times as always with Jawny! Camera: Nikon D3s & Sigma 85mm 1.4 ~ …

Paul

This a friend of mine, Paul. We met up around midnight, downtown in Calgary. The time might seem odd and it is, but for this particular picture it had to be late at night. You see, Paul is standing in the middle of the street at busy (during the day) intersection. I wanted to shoot …

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 …

Fujifilm X-E1 & Canon 50mm 1.2

I picked up this Fujifilm X-E1 on consignment the other day when I was down at my local camera shop. The body was there for $250, so I thought why not. At that price you can’t really go wrong. The screen has some scratches on it, but that kind of thing doesn’t bother me. I …

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 …

Orange

I shot this photo with the help of a friend of mine. We sliced the orange and then put it between 2 panes of glass and set it up standing. We had one Canon 580ex ii (triggered by pocket wizards) set up directly behind the orange. We then took a piece of paper with a …

Wine

This was a fun picture to take. I had one large softbox set up to camera right. The background was a board with a bunch of white lights stuck to it with crinkled tinfoil stuck in between them. I shot this handheld while a friend of mine poured the wine into the glass. We made …

A Shot with Joshua

It’s not often I get to have a picture with my son Joshua. You would think I have tons, but unfortunately I don’t! I have decided that is all going to change and I am going to make more of an effort to get in pictures with my children. They grow so fast and it …

Stefany

I rarely post head shots here, but I really like how the lighting turned out on this one. Shadows can be your best friend when shooting portraits and I’d say that is the case for this photo. For this shot I had one Canon 580EX ii to camera left shot through a white umbrella. Thanks for …

New West Wedding Styles

I have a bunch of wedding photos that I posted to my old blog that shall never see the light of day again. I thought I would grab some of my favourite ones and post them on here from time to time. I shot this one a while back in New Westminster, BC. The location …
