Waiting by the Library

My son Joshua had a hockey game at one of the downtown arenas here in Kelowna this past weekend. No one is allowed to watch the games because of obvious reasons, so I while I was waiting I decide to go shoot a few photos. The arena he was playing at was on the other …

My 1st Pentax 67 Photoshoot

In early September I had the exciting experience of my first photo shoot using my Pentax 6×7 medium format film camera. I had been waiting on this day for a very long time so my excitement was through the roof. My brother in-law Robert was helping me out by modelling for me. I decided to …

Unassuming in Puerto Vallarta

This house on the corner looks so unassuming on the outside, but I bet it’s amazing on the inside. The house itself looks pretty big and has multiple terraces with what looks to be a nice little third (or forth floor, depending on what street your looking from) floor stand alone room or studio. Whatever …

Life in the East Village

There is a lot more life in the East Village of Calgary then there was a year ago. While I was living in Calgary there was always a decent amount of action in the neighbourhood, but it has got a lot more lively since I moved. A few new buildings finished up and some new …

Test Shot

This was just a test shot I took the other night. I’m thinking I will use this location for a portrait shoot. I think it’d be cool to have someone leaning on that railing on the right side the frame. With a person there I’d change up the composition a little, but it would be …

Waiting

I wanted to take a picture like this, but I didn’t have the location. I knew I wanted some lights in the background and I needed some kind of street light to hit me in the front. I drove and walked around Kelowna for about 2 hours before I found this spot. I tried a …

All The Lights

I had drove by this place a few times and I knew right away that I was going to go back one night and shoot a photo. I love all the lights on the sign and the strings of lights above the deck. These type of lights always look good in long exposures. The place …

35 or Bust!

I’m back out and about shooting photos! Well, not that I haven’t been shooting photos, but I’ve mostly been sticking around home and my neighbourhood and getting out into nature. But things around Kelowna seem to be getting back to normal these days so I figured it’s probably safe for me go downtown and do …

The Sails in Kelowna

This awesome public art piece in the middle of the photo is called “The Sails”. I’m not 100% if that’s the official name, but that’s what I’ve heard it been called. I think it’s a wonderful piece in a perfect spot downtown in Kelowna. I nearly didn’t share this photo because I though it would …

Flashback YYC

Here’s an old Calgary picture that never made it out the gate. I think the plan was to go back when that fence was down, but then I ended up moving haha. Maybe when I’m back in Calgary this summer I’ll actually go and re-do this shot. I guess it depends on what it looks …

Light My Steps

I love this staircase. The way it’s lit up at night like this it is just beautiful to me. This staircase is actually in a really nice location right by the Bow river in Calgary. Anytime I was going by this spot at night I would make a point to walk up or down these …

Draw Me In City

I was taking a look through some of my Honolulu photos and came across this one. I was surprised to see I hadn’t shared this one before. This is my favourite type of picture and I could stare at this one for a long time, so I cant imagine why I didn’t get this one …
