Canadian Reflection

It was kind of rainy one morning this past weekend in Kelowna and then the sun came out and it was beautiful. When I saw that shinning down on the wet street I had an idea. Find a big puddle and shoot some reflection shots. I would have preferred to shoot these photos with something …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

One Last Calgary Skyline

I shot this photo right before I moved away from Calgary. I figured after all the years of shooting the city skyline I had better get one last shot. I spent a lot of time looking at this skyline from around this view. If I needed to think or I was feeling restless I would …

Buildings Are Life

We are getting more tall buildings around here in Calgary. There are also more regular size buildings too for people to live in, which should be good for the city. I like it when more people are living in the centre of a city rather than in the suburbs and all the new buildings should …

Before Dark

I was out shooting some photos that did not include a view of the city last night. However the location I was shooting at had a pretty good view of Calgary. Just as I was wrapping up what I was doing I took a look at the city and figured it’d be a shame not …

Summer in Spokane

I took this picture back in 2012. My son Joshua and I were going for a ride on the ferris wheel in Riverfront park and I shot this photo from around the topside of the wheel. Spokane has since renovated the park and made a lot of changes. I haven’t been back to Spokane in …
