Summer Streets

The streets in Kelowna during the summer months are great. Lots of people around, things are happening and the trees are green again. Those leaves really do add a nice touch of colour to pictures. The trees would probably look better with a little less movement in them, but I’m ok with out this one …

Since I was Out

I was on a location photoshoot this past weekend and when we left the location I accidentally left at light stand on location. The photoshoot went a little long and by the time I got home and realized I forgot the stand it was already dark. I figured since I was out I might as …

Quiet View

I shot this photo from a quiet little path a by the ocean in Hadden Park. The view is of the West End in Vancouver, BC. I’m sure during the day there are loads of people around here, but at night it is pretty quiet. I love looking at the city at night and I …

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 …
