TriMet to the Bridge

rob-moses-exif-data-settings-canon-6d-50mm-1-4I had just walked across this bridge in Portland and saw the train coming up. One quick shot later and I had this picture. If I had a little more time to think I probably would have shot this with a slower shutter speed to show some movement in the train. I guess I’ll have to wait till next time to have another go at it.

The 2nd photo is just shot I took of myself while I was taking pictures off the top of this parking garage. 🙂

Best Photographer Finalist

So last month I got an email that said (among other things) “You were recommended for the Calgary Event Awards as an amazing event photographer”, I’ll leave out all the other boring stuff, but that line pretty much says it all. Anything like that is always nice to hear, so with that email I tossed my hat in the ring. Then a week or so later I got another email that read “Calgary Event Awards 2017 – Finalists” and then “Congratulations!” blah, blah, blah. Nice! I guess some other people kinda like what I do too. So as it turns out I’m up for Best Photographer and it’s between two other photographers and myself. The awards are on March 2nd, so I’ll be sure and let you guys know if I win or not. 🙂

Our Cancun Trip

rob-moses-exif-data-sony-a7ii-24-70mmSo as you may already know my family and I took a trip to Cancun Mexico recently. As you can imagine I took a lot of pictures. I will be sharing some of the Mexico pictures on here over the next little while, but I though I’d drop a bunch at once right now to give you an idea of how the trip looked. It was warm, fun and I’m looking forward to the next one!

If you follow me on Instagram (@RobMoses) then you probably already know I was hanging out in Cancun Mexico over the last week or so. If you don’t follow me on IG, Hello! sorry for the disappearance! 😉 haha. Anyhow, my family and I took a little time off and did some serious relaxing by the beach. I shot a few photos while I was down there and actually made couple video’s too. Here is one of my favourite sunset shots from the trip and the videos. I’ll get a proper post together in the next couple days.

John Finch Park


On my last trip to Spokane, Washington a friend of mine took me for a little tour around John A. Finch Park. Even though most of the leaves had already fallen off the trees there was surprisingly still a lot of photographer buzzing around shooting photos. We must have seen at least 7 or 8 photographers there (not including us). Clearly this place is a very popular photography location for Spokane photographers and justifiably so, it is a beautiful park and from what I hear, summer and early fall is especially wonderful. I’ll have to make it out there a little earlier next time.

Room With a View

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-6d-24-70mm-f2-8-lJust taking in the view from my hotel room’s deck in Spokane, Washington. I dialled in my settings and handed my camera off to my wife to take this one for me. It really was a nice view and I was fired up about the sweater I bought the night before at the Spokane Chiefs game ;). Always a good time in Spokane, I love that place.

A Shot with Joshua

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-eos-6d-70-200mm-f4-isIt’s not often I get to have a picture with my son Joshua. You would think I have tons, but unfortunately I don’t! I have decided that is all going to change and I am going to make more of an effort to get in pictures with my children. They grow so fast and it seems like I barely have any pictures of me with them. Here’s to a good start. 🙂

Enjoy The View

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-6d-24-105mm-f4-isSometimes you just gotta have a seat and enjoy the beauty around you. When you’re in Lake Louise there is no shortage of places to do just that. I think this particular spot is definitely one of the best places to take it all in.

I didn’t know this guy, but I thought it was a good look the way he was sitting by the lake. I ran up behind him and shot about 5 photos. I was shooting at 24mm, so you can image how close I was to him. After I shot the first photo, he looked back at me and I shot my second frame. Clearly he didn’t mind because he just turned his head back and kept enjoying the view. 🙂

I was down at the park with some friends and my family on Friday evening when I took these. My sons were having quite the time on the slide and decided doubling up on the slide might be a fun time. Looks like they were right. 😉

Summer Night Selfie

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-5d-mark-iii-ef-300mm-f2-8Not a proper selfie, but I did take this picture of myself :). I had been out shooting all night and thought before I packed it in I would jump in on a shot. To get the focus right, I propped my iPhone up on the 2X Extender I had with me with the “notes” app open for the white screen (as seen in the picture bellow). Once the phone was set, I ran back to my camera and auto focused on the phone and then set the lens to manual focus. I did a couple small adjustments, set the 10 second timer and ran back to my pre determined spot which was marked by my keys. I shot this photo about 4 or 5 times and it was easily the most fun I had all night!

On The Railing

sony-a850-minolta-100mm-f2-8-macro-rob-moses-exif-dataI was out for a walk around the neighbourhood with my son Joshua yesterday evening. I wanted to shoot a photo with my Minolta 100mm lens and I figured I’d find something to shoot a long the way. When we got to the spot in the picture, my son suggested I just take a picture of him. I’m glad he made the suggestion, because I love how the photo turned out.

Boys 1st Day of School

rob-moses-exif-data-sony-a850-minolta-50mm-1-4Another school year has started for my boys! This is Cameron’s (black sweater) first year at Stanley Jones Elementary. Cam has been looking forward to joining his brother Joshua, who has started the 2nd grade today. I love taking the boys to school on their first day, but this day was extra special since it is Cam’s first day of elementary. Seeing them both off together was really fun and I am looking forward to many more fun days to come.

Adventure of a Lifetime

Yesterday I took a trip out the mountains to do a some hiking. By the time I had passed the tree line something came over me and I decided it would be fun to keep going. It was clear to me that this mountain was much steeper than any hike I had ever been on, but the challenge and exhilaration that I knew awaited me at the top was too difficult to over come. So on I went. Every time I would make a little goal for myself I would reach it and then I’d make another goal to go a little higher and then higher yet. A few minutes after I took this picture it started to rain and that was my cue to get the heck out of there.

I knew if the rocks got slippery I’d be in some serious trouble, because one good slip and certain death awaited me! The way down was a lot more scary than the way up. The rain was coming down and I knew I had to be extra careful. There was a lot of sliding involved in my decent and I got to give it up to my trusty Nike sneakers, they never let me down and stuck to the rocks when I needed them too :). Sunday for me was an adventure of a lifetime and I can’t wait to do it again!
