Drop The Bass

I was out kicking around the streets of Calgary last weekend shooting some photos with a friend of mine. I spotted this guy from across the street and knew I had to get a shot of him. He was drop’n the bass on some funky tunes and was real cool about a picture. Love people like that!

Music Video

Some of you might remember me mentioning I was going to be shooting a music video for a guy this summer (this guy). I have finally finished it. It was my first crack at music video and I think turned out alright. I didn’t realize how much work it was to get a whole video done! I had fun making the video, but the editing process was a little time consuming for my taste. Even though I had a lot of fun making the video, I’m not sure if I’ll do another one. My passion is in photography and I think I’m best off sticking with that.

The video was filmed over 2 days. I shot with a Canon 5D mark iii with a 50mm 1.4, a Sony VG20 with 50mm 1.8 & 18-200mm and a GoPro Hero 4 Silver on a Feiyu Tech G4 Gimbal stick. The editing process was lengthy, because I could only work on it at night after all my photo work was done and my family had gone to bed. As you can imagine this made for some long nights. Anyway, take a look at the video if you like that kind of thing ;).

People On The Peace Bridge

On Saturday I decided to head back to the Peace Bridge. This time I wanted to shoot something a little wider, so I brought my 6D & 28mm 1.8. It was a nice day in Calgary, so there was lots of people around and no shortage of photo ops. Here are a few of the ones liked best.

Sheep Dogs & Strangers in Banff

The other weekend a friend of mine and I headed out to Banff to shoot some photos. It just so happens that there was some type of Olympic block party going on the same weekend! Good luck for us right :). We ripped around Banff shooting photos and when the Sheep Dogs went on we were there. While bouncing around the party we bumped into a friendly group of people who invited us to stop off at their house party. Not being one to turn down a random adventure with strangers I said let’s go! So off we went! Here are just a few pictures of some of the cool Banff strangers we met.

Thanks for the invite and fun time guys! ;).

Studio Time with Mr. Blackman

A couple of days ago I was sitting in my office editing photos when I got a text message that read “Hey Rob, you still in Calgary?” I quickly replied with a “Yes” and “Who is this?” haha. To my delighted surprise it was my old buddy from Toronto Damian aka Mr. Blackman. Damian said he was in town and going to be recording a song at Red Tree Records & Studio and invited me to come hang out. Naturally I went down to see my old pal and I took a couple of pictures while I was there :).

DJ Jimmi Riggz – Calgary Turntablist

Another post from my People of Calgary blog 🙂

The People of Calgary

I met Greg (aka Jimmi Riggz) at the 10@10 hip hop night I went to last month. After Greg’s set was over he made is way over to the bar and my table wasn’t far off. So I jumped up started to chat with him and told him about this blog, to my surprise he said he had heard of it! I asked him if he would be up for a quick interview and he was down. My conversation with Greg had a lot of laughs which made it one of the most fun interviews to date :). Here’s what Greg AKA Jimmi Riggz had to say.

The other night I went out to a local hip hop night to interview someone for my People of Calgary Blog. I stuck around and shot a few photos after the interview and thought I’d share a few of the pictures here 🙂 If you would like to see a few more stop by here.
