Quiet by The Creek

A few days ago my son Cameron and I were on a bike ride and we dipped into this wooded area to do a little photo location scouting. We found this spot, but at first nothing came to me, I just knew I loved the location. After I gave it some more though later that …

Post Time

Lately I’ve been posting at odd times. Mid morning has probably been a trend for me lately as I haven’t been to keen to do my blogging at night like I used to. I’m not even sure it matters, but for some reason I can’t help but think I having it ready to go the …

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 …

A Calm Afternoon in Kelowna

Yesterday I met my wife after work downtown for a little stroll along the lakeside. The lake was especially calm and so was the afternoon sun. It was sweater weather and even though there were lots of people out and about the entire vibe was pretty mellow. When the water is still like this it …

This View

I really love the view of Kelowna from the westside. I have some ideas for photos on this side, but I kind of want to wait until the leaves come back out. I might do that, but I might not have the patients. I guess theres no reason I cant do both haha. Anyhow, for …

Cliff Light

I went out for a little hike yesterday on a new path I had never been on before. The whole trip was really great, but there was a nice stretch where I was walking along this cliff and the views were awesome. When I spotted this part of the cliff with this great bit of …

Lake is Life

No matter what the weather is doing I love this lake. I grew up by the water is almost all the places I lived (and there was a lot) growing up. Other than when I lived Phoenix AZ I spent my life living by either the ocean or a big lake. When I moved to …

The Pick Up

So I’m picking up a leaf in this picture, but it was totally set up haha. Also, I was not planning on getting in front of the camera that day, so wardrobe was given zero thought. I prefocused using my manual focus Nikon Ai 50mm f/1.8 using a spot in the sand as an estimation …

She grows so fast!

I shot this photo a few weeks ago and I figured I’d better post it before she’s double the size! This little dog is growing at an incredible speed! I love her just how she is, but I wish she could stay a puppy for a little while longer. 😉 Shot on a Sony a7ii …

Penticton Winter Night

I took a little zip down to Penticton BC last night. I wasn’t there to shoot photos, but I thought it would be a shame to not at least try and get one shot while I was down there. I figured something by the beach would be good but it was really dark so I …

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. …

Another Christmas in the Books

I have always loved Christmas, but Christmas has been especially wonderful since I had these two beautiful boys. There is nothing like waking up earlier than you want to on Christmas morning because your children are so excited and cant wait another moment. I know how these  boys are so I had my camera ready …

Raymer Christmas Concert

Last night was the boys school’s Christmas concert. Usually these things are fun just to see how cute the kids are, but this year was a real joy to watch. To watch my two boys having so much fun in their new school with their new classmates made me so happy. You could see on …
