Yellow

I just stubbled on this picture I took in the fall that never made it out the door. I actually like this picture, I just kind of forgot about it haha. I was just walking by and couldn’t help but notice the bright yellow tree peaking over the hill. I thought contrast of the bright …

Life on The Edge

I took a little trip out to Fintry Provincial Park a couple days ago to shoot some photos and make a video. I was doing a little review of the Nikon Nikkor 14mm f/2.8 lens. I shot some photos in this abandoned house and then made my way up a mountain to a this waterfall. …

Might as well stick Around

So after listening to the valuable information and points you guys gave me regarding either keeping my blog on WordPress or moving it, I have decided to just keep it here on WordPress. Making this general photography blog work with a wedding blog doesn’t really seem like something I can make work. I just don’t …

Test Leaves

These are just a couple of the test shots from the youtube video I posted yesterday. I just love the colour of these leaves so much I figured I’d might as well post them. If you didn’t see that video I’ll post it again at the bottom of this post. Camera: Sony a7R & Nikkor-H …

Nikon Nikkor-H 85mm 1.8

I recently got my hands on a Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 prime lens. Nikon released this version of the lens in 1964, so it’s definitely got some vintage qualities to it. I love the old look of the lens and it produces good photos. The lens isn’t perfect, but for the low price you’d pay for …

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 …

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 …

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 …

My Favourite Camera

This has been my favourite camera now for many years! I have and have had technically “better” cameras, but for whatever reason, I still use this one more than any other. It is the Sony a7R original. It’s a 36 megapixel camera with 14.1 stops of dynamic range and for me that is just perfect. …

Stone Church

I am a massive fan of old buildings. This beautiful old stone church is located in Nelson, BC. I’ve walked by this building many times and even attended an event or two there. It’s a wonderful building all around and inside too. Next time I’ll get more pictures and show the whole thing. Shot with …

Inside The Calgary Library

The interior of the new Calgary Library is wonderful! Since the library opened I have seen tons of pictures of the outside and inside and every little corner of the place. I really enjoyed a lot of the pictures I had seen and wanted to get a shot of my own. I didn’t want to …

Joshua’s Back On The Ice

My 9 year old son Joshua has started his 2018/19 hockey season here in Calgary. His team is participating in a tournament this weekend and last night I shot a few photos of him during the 2nd period (this was the only time I could stand behind/beside the goalie he was shooting on). In the …

A Night At The Beach

When I was in Puerto Vallarta in the spring I took many late night strolls around the city. The night I found my self at this location I had just been there earlier on in the day time. During the day the beach was packed and there were people everywhere. Even thought I like a …
