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 …

Lighting

Nature is awesome! Right before I took this picture I actually had my camera pointed in the opposite direction. I was shooting some photos of the Calgary skyline when I noticed some flashing going on behind me. Excited at the prospect of getting a lighting bolt picture I spun my camera around and started snapping. …

5 Year Old Violet

Time flies when you’re having fun. I took pictures of Violet for her 2nd, 3rd, 4th and now 5th birthday! When her mom Amanda texted me about doing the photos I could hardly believe it had already been another year! I still can’t believe it. Anyhow, Violet was a super fun as she always is …

Tamilla Working

I did a photo shoot with this lovely young woman over the weekend. If you’re a regular to this blog then you might recognize Tamilla from a recent wedding I shot. And also her engagement photos before that. Anyhow, Tamilla needed some photos for her website, so we made our way around some indoor locations (because it’s …

Michelle

My wife Michelle needed a head shot for something or other, so I took this picture of her yesterday. The lighting set up I used consisted of 3 Canon Speedlites. I had one 580EX ii to camera right shot into a white bounce umbrella, one 580EX ii to camera left shot into a smaller white …

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 …

NY Jets Helmet

I have recently been working on a little DIY project and this helmet is the finished product. While I was down in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho this summer I found this old football helmet at a random thrift store I wondered into. For a measly $10 I thought why not pick it up and see what …

Mary Portrait

My mother in-law was just in town over the weekend and I shot this portrait of her yesterday. We shot the photo right in front of my house. There are a lot of trees around my house and I thought it would look nice to use them for a green background. I used one Canon …
