28mm Manual Focus

I shot this photo with an old Vivitar 28mm f/2.8 Close Focus RL Edition lens. The lens is a Nikon Mount and I got a Nikon to EOS adapter from ebay to use it on my Canon bodies. This lens is crazy sharp wide open and at every aperture. I think it goes with out saying …

My Favourite Bridge

I wouldn’t call this a straight up shot of the Centre Street Bridge in Calgary, but you get the idea. It’s old, has style and is beautiful! Much like my self lol, kidding of course! (I’m not old) LOL ;).  Ok, ok, ok, for real though, this bridge is awesome and when you cross it …

Cute House in Bridgeland

I was at the park the other day with my 2 boys and I noticed this cute little house across the street. This house is not a typical Calgary style house and that is part of what draws me to it. In a lot of Calgary neighbourhoods all the houses tend to look the same and …

Calgary By The River

The river that runs through Calgary is rather low now and there was a massive area for me to walk out on to get this picture. It was just me and a couple Canadian Geese hanging out shooting photos :). I actually got a picture with those guys in it, but I’ll post that one another day …

Drunk Girl Shakes Up My Pic

Last night I decided to go out and get some night shots of this bridge that is near my house. As I arrived I noticed a few sketchy looking people milling about, but they ended up going on their way, so I set up my tripod and camera. I set my camera to a 30 …

Old Country Bridge

I was out shooting a house in a small town called Cochrane yesterday. The town is about 20 minutes outside of the city and is a nice little community from what I saw. I had shot houses in this community before and I always noticed this old bridge from the top of a large hill as your …

Happy Lady

Here’s another street shot of a very friendly old lady that was walking by me one day. She was walking down the street really slowly and I snapped a quick picture of her walking by, when she noticed I took her picture she gave me a big smile, so I quickly said “One more!” She gave …

Pipe Smoke’n Old Guy

I was walking down the street and noticed this old guy puff’n on his pipe outside of a bar. I immediately pictured the shot in black and white and thought it might be half decent. So I walked up to him and asked if I could take his picture, he nodded, put his pipe in …

Canon A-1

I was bored the other night so I decided to do a little product style photography. This old A-1 is sitting on my desk in my office/basement studio, so I just grabbed it and took this picture. For lighting I had 2 Canon 550EX Speedlites shot through umbrellas and one LED light pointing at the lens …

Winter City

I shot this photo last Saturday, which is supposed to be the first day of winter. I can assure you that winter has been in full effect in the city of Calgary for quite sometime! Anyhow, when I shot this photo I had zero intentions of using it for anything. At the time I was …

Bright Night In This City

This shot was taken right before the snow started to fly in Calgary. It is the south-west corner of the Olympic Plaza. I really like the old building on the left side of the frame. I wish there was more of these types of buildings still around in Calgary. Camera: Canon 5D mark ii & …

Heritage Park – Calgary

Today some family and I went on a little outing to Heritage Park here in Calgary. They got a bunch of old cars and gas pumps in one building and then in the actual park itself there is an old western style town with a train and a handful of old amusement park rides. I …
