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 …

My 1st Pentax 67 Photoshoot

In early September I had the exciting experience of my first photo shoot using my Pentax 6×7 medium format film camera. I had been waiting on this day for a very long time so my excitement was through the roof. My brother in-law Robert was helping me out by modelling for me. I decided to …

Unassuming in Puerto Vallarta

This house on the corner looks so unassuming on the outside, but I bet it’s amazing on the inside. The house itself looks pretty big and has multiple terraces with what looks to be a nice little third (or forth floor, depending on what street your looking from) floor stand alone room or studio. Whatever …

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 …

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 …

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 …

The Great War Monument

I shot this one last night beside a fire hall downtown in Kelowna. I suppose it’s a war monument dedicated to some firefighters who went off to war. I don’t know anymore than that as I didn’t see any plaques around or anything with more info. Maybe I’ll meet some old guy there one day …

35 or Bust!

I’m back out and about shooting photos! Well, not that I haven’t been shooting photos, but I’ve mostly been sticking around home and my neighbourhood and getting out into nature. But things around Kelowna seem to be getting back to normal these days so I figured it’s probably safe for me go downtown and do …

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 …

Dark Night Juneau

My wife and I took Juneau for a little walk the other night along this boardwalk near our house. I spotted this little ledge under this light and thought it’d be a good spot for a picture. As you can see it was a really dark night! I think the picture works though because Juneau …

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 …
