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 …

West Kelowna View

With a little effort you can get to these amazing views around here in Kelowna, British Columbia. This was a nice hike up a mountain in West Kelowna and there was plenty to see from up there. I shot a bunch of photos but the landscape is a little dull at the moment and I …

Bellingham

Just a few old school pictures from back in the Bellingham days. I used to spend a lot of time in his town because I lived 20 minutes away and I really like this place. I haven’t been back to Bellingham in years and now that I’m living in a reasonable distance away (a 4 hour …

Skateboarding Around

My family and I have been practicing our social distancing these days. We are taking the CoronaVirus very seriously around here, but we are still trying to have fun. After all, my boys are only going to be 9 & 11 this one year and just because the world is going to hell at the …

Sunset for One

I needed to get out for a little fresh air the other day, but with all this Coronavirus business that’s going on I didn’t want to find myself around any other people. Lucky for me this little gem of a spot is just a few blocks from my house and I knew this exact spot …

The Dakhka Khwaan Dancers

These are the amazing Dakhká Khwáan Tlingit Dancers. How I ended up at this show is unbelievable. My wife and I were down in Vancouver for one night and one day to return some things to Ikea from our kitchen renovation and to pick up a bunch of stuff we needed to outfit our Air …

A Touch Darker in Portland

Street photography in Portland is great! The city is dense enough to have busy streets and the streets are beautiful. This is the perfect combination for getting good street shots, at least that’s what I think. I was just playing around in Lightroom last night editing some old photos. If you read this blog you …

A Little More Mexican

In the more touristy areas of Mexican vacation destination cities it can sometimes feel like your talking around in the US rather than Mexico. This I found especially true in Playa Del Carmen. Now don’t get me wrong, I love the United States, but when I’m in Mexico I like to feel like I’m in …

Brighter Days

I feel like I needed to add a little brightness into the blog. So many of my pictures have been on the darker side lately that I figured I’d go into my files and find something bright. I struggle with keeping dark photos dark and I always want to lean on the brighter side. I …

Fujifilm on the streets

Lately I’ve been missing shooting with my Fujifilm camera. I just loved all the little dials and nobs for changing your settings. The small camera (X-T2 in this case) made photography a little extra fun for me. The only thing is, I know I can get better images using my Sony camera (on account of …

Looking Around Kelowna

I’ve been looking around Kelowna for new photo spots ever since I moved here. Since I am new to the city all the photo spots are new, but I’ve been trying to find the best ones. I should probably just be shooting everything though since I live here and I’ll eventually cover it all haha. …

The Pick Up

So I’m picking up a leaf in this picture, but it was totally set up haha. Also, I was not planning on getting in front of the camera that day, so wardrobe was given zero thought. I prefocused using my manual focus Nikon Ai 50mm f/1.8 using a spot in the sand as an estimation …
