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 …

Friendly Goats

I posted this picture and some others to my Westfalia blog. I really like this picture so I though I’d also post it here :). If you want to see a couple more pictures of these goats swing by, (letsgowestfalia.wordpress.com). Thanks for stopping by, Rob

Urban Sunset

Sunsets over a city are always the best to me! I love the light shining off the glass buildings and different reflections in the windows. Usually when I shoot a sunset like this I get more of the city, but the tighter shot does show more detail and is pleasant to look at in its …

Nikon Legend

Click photo to view in a larger size. So I have decided to take it back to the old school and start shooting some film again. When I was shooting film back in the day I was mostly shooting with a Canon Rebel, not exactly the greatest camera, but it was good for me at …

Head of Security

This gigantic public art piece downtown in Calgary is a very popular photo stop for locals and tourist. It is with good reason too because the head is awesome! Security around this head is a little overboard though. For instance, don’t even think of climbing on it or even pretending to climb, security will be …

The Sprawl Jump

I was out shooting photos on Friday night and ended up at this place. I thought a near by art piece would make a good fisheye shot, but it turned out to be a bust. Since my other photo idea wasn’t working out I noticed this bench and I thought I might try jumping off …

On The Edge

I was wondering around the city last night looking for some new locations to shoot a photo. I went up a set of stairs between some buildings and ended up here. As soon as I got to the top of the stairs I new I wanted to get out on the ledge. I checked it …

Selfie in the Night

After everyone at my house went to bed I decided I’d get out and shoot a photo. As soon as I got my gear in my car a light snow started to fall! I almost packed it in, but I thought it couldn’t hurt to take the few minutes drive to some buildings and see …

An Old Sunset

This picture was just sitting on my computer for the past few years. I was never planning on doing anything with it, but I needed something for my Instagram account yesterday and I just decided to post this one. It’s not a bad picture, but I just didn’t excite me. However, there is a peaceful …

Summer City

Summer time in the city is always the best! This is especially true for Calgary. The air is warm and the city is alive, a perfect set up for good picture taking. I shot this one on Wednesday night from Scotsman Hill. I used my Sony a7ii and Nikkor 55mm f/2.8 micro manual focus lens. …

Old Camera Park

Even in the middle of winter, Princes Island Park has people buzzing around. I shot this photo on my way home yesterday evening just as the sun started to set. I shot this photo with Nikon D2Xs & a 50mm 1.8G. Even though the D2Xs is an older camera now, it still performs wonderfully and is …

Stop and Enjoy the View

Camera: Nikon D300s & 70-210mm F4 at 70mm ~ Settings: f/16 – 1/125th – ISO 200 I was out the other day shooting photos with my Nikon D300s and an old lens that has kind of a so-so reputation. The lens is a circa 1986 – 87 Nikon AF 70-210mm F4. I personally like the …
