A Night on Knox Mountain

The weather is finally getting warm enough (for me) to go out at night again around here. I took that as my cue to get out and shoot some long exposures. I decided to head up to Knox Mountain Park and see if could come up with any thing good. I brought my dog Juneau …

Dark by the Lake

I was walking around shooting photos in my neighbourhood over the weekend. On my way home I stopped by the lake to see what it looked like. I got there just as the last bit of light was about to leave the sky. I didn’t have a tripod with me so I just rested my …

A Dark Night on the Beach

I was bored and awake late one night in Puerto Vallarta, so I decided to grab my camera and take a stroll along the beach. I didn’t have to walk too far till I saw this scene and thought it might make a good picture. My favourite part of the picture is the two people …

A Night on the Beach

This photo is a few years old by now. I shot it one night while I was walking around the beaches of Cancún, Mexico. I was staying in the hotel in the middle of the picture. I just grabbed my camera and tripod and started walking down the beach looking for a shot. On this …

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 …

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 …

Kelowna Summer Heat

It’s been hot days in Kelowna lately. I’m not complaining though because at least when it’s nice and sunny outside it kind of draws you out, at least it does for me. When it’s super nice I want to be out there doing stuff. However, once the heat starts hitting that 30C/90F mark your options …

The Lights at Night

I shot a photo from this exact spot a couple weeks ago (see that picture here). At the time I didn’t have any longer lenses with me and I thought I’d like to get a shot zoomed in a little closer to this building. All the lights on he building look so nice at night …

Good Night Kelowna

This is a view of Ellis Street downtown in Kelowna. I had the idea for this picture when I was driving down this street one day. When I was thinking about this photo I pictured a lot more apartment lights on. I guess most people were already asleep or they were out? Either way the …

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 …

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 …

The Great War Monument

I shot this one last night beside a fire hall downtown in Kelowna. I suppose it’s a war monument dedicated to some firefighters who went off to war. I don’t know anymore than that as I didn’t see any plaques around or anything with more info. Maybe I’ll meet some old guy there one day …
