Waiting for the Storm

I shot this one on Saturday night. It had been raining all day and the clouds looked rather menacing. I thought rather than just another city shot, I might hop in front of the camera to add a little something to the photo. I was shooting with a friend of mine and he had a …

Silver Springs Wedding: Ashley & Dustin

The leaves and grass got green just in time for this wedding. The sun also came out right when it needed too! Sure the harsh light provides its own problems for taking pictures, but the ambiance and over all feeling the emerging afternoon sun brought with it was well wroth the trade off. This was …

Tamilla Working

I did a photo shoot with this lovely young woman over the weekend. If you’re a regular to this blog then you might recognize Tamilla from a recent wedding I shot. And also her engagement photos before that. Anyhow, Tamilla needed some photos for her website, so we made our way around some indoor locations (because it’s …

Michelle

My wife Michelle needed a head shot for something or other, so I took this picture of her yesterday. The lighting set up I used consisted of 3 Canon Speedlites. I had one 580EX ii to camera right shot into a white bounce umbrella, one 580EX ii to camera left shot into a smaller white …

Flashy Horse

I have wanted to shoot this photo for a while now. This little public park is at one of the train stations downtown. One day when I got off the train at this stop I was checking out these iron art pieces. The idea for this photo came to me soon after that visit. The …

NY Jets Helmet

I have recently been working on a little DIY project and this helmet is the finished product. While I was down in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho this summer I found this old football helmet at a random thrift store I wondered into. For a measly $10 I thought why not pick it up and see what …

Lake of the Stars

Last thursday night I took a little trip to the mountains in and effort to escape the city lights. With me being an urban type of guy, this is some what out of character for me. However, I do enjoy a bit of fresh air and a starry sky from time to time and I have …

Mary Portrait

My mother in-law was just in town over the weekend and I shot this portrait of her yesterday. We shot the photo right in front of my house. There are a lot of trees around my house and I thought it would look nice to use them for a green background. I used one Canon …

Nooreen & Imran’s Calgary Wedding

I had the pleasure of shooting Nooreen & Imran’s wedding last weekend. Both Nooreen & Imran live in Edmonton, but had their wedding here in Calgary, as it is Nooreen’s hometown. I started the day off at Nooreen’s grandmothers house where the girls were getting ready. After a few photos I zipped over to the …

Uninterested Cat

The night before last I tried getting a picture of my other cat, but he wasn’t having any of it! I couldn’t even get the other cat to look in my general direction haha.  So last night  I decided to give it another go with my other cat “Panda Bear”. This guy wasn’t exactly into …
