Best Photographer Finalist

So last month I got an email that said (among other things) “You were recommended for the Calgary Event Awards as an amazing event photographer”, I’ll leave out all the other boring stuff, but that line pretty much says it all. Anything like that is always nice to hear, so with that email I tossed my hat in the ring. Then a week or so later I got another email that read “Calgary Event Awards 2017 – Finalists” and then “Congratulations!” blah, blah, blah. Nice! I guess some other people kinda like what I do too. So as it turns out I’m up for Best Photographer and it’s between two other photographers and myself. The awards are on March 2nd, so I’ll be sure and let you guys know if I win or not. 🙂

Enjoy The Sunset

exif-data-canon-5d-classic-ef-85mm-1-8I was out one day for a walk the park and was enjoying the sunset. I walked up on this couple who were taking it all in with a front row seat. That feather in the guys cap caught my eye and I thought putting the sun right between them would be perfect. I like how the sun looks in the picture and I love how it looked in person.

Special Delivery Spokane

I was walking around this neighbourhood (South Hill) with a friend of mine in Spokane. We had just took a stroll in a nearby park when this mail truck caught my eye. I thought the beautiful house the mailman was in front of made a nice little scene, so I snapped this photo.

Enjoy The Lights

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-5d-mark-iii-50mm-1-4I took this picture right when I showed up to this location. These two were standing right in the perfect spot for me take a picture of them. They seemed to be enjoying the lights and from what I could tell they didn’t mind me taking their picture. I was shooting with a 50mm lens, so as you can imagine I was quite close to them and I am certain they could hear my camera clicking away. I suppose they were just another friendly couple in Edmonton, which I am sure there are many :).

John Finch Park


On my last trip to Spokane, Washington a friend of mine took me for a little tour around John A. Finch Park. Even though most of the leaves had already fallen off the trees there was surprisingly still a lot of photographer buzzing around shooting photos. We must have seen at least 7 or 8 photographers there (not including us). Clearly this place is a very popular photography location for Spokane photographers and justifiably so, it is a beautiful park and from what I hear, summer and early fall is especially wonderful. I’ll have to make it out there a little earlier next time.

Riverfront Carrousel Lights

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-6d-24-70mm-settingsI love the lights on the building! I always enjoy walking by this place when I’m kicking around Spokane. There is a great carrousel inside that building and the location is perfect. Right at the edge of the park connecting the city and as you can see, by the water! As you can imagine, it is a beautiful place for a night time stroll.

Guys on a Mountain

I was hiking up a mountain one day this past summer and I saw these guys sitting on the edge of a cliff having a nice little rest for them selves. I thought it looked like a moment, so I shot a quick photo. I really should have taken one of their emails so I could send them the picture. I know I’d like a picture of me and my buddy sitting on the side of a mountain! Maybe they’ll come across this blog randomly one day.

Enjoy The View

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-6d-24-105mm-f4-isSometimes you just gotta have a seat and enjoy the beauty around you. When you’re in Lake Louise there is no shortage of places to do just that. I think this particular spot is definitely one of the best places to take it all in.

I didn’t know this guy, but I thought it was a good look the way he was sitting by the lake. I ran up behind him and shot about 5 photos. I was shooting at 24mm, so you can image how close I was to him. After I shot the first photo, he looked back at me and I shot my second frame. Clearly he didn’t mind because he just turned his head back and kept enjoying the view. 🙂

Well it’s that time of year again that all the hockey fans have been waiting for! The NHL preseason has started the real games are just around the corner. I am sure there are many fun nights in the near future for me in this building.

For the locals, I’m still peeved that Hartley‘s gone, but what are ya gonna do? Hope the Flames have a good year with the new guy.

My son Cameron and I took a walk to the store the other day and on our way there I shot this photo. I think next time I’ll bring a tripod and hop in the picture with him. 🙂

I was down at the park with some friends and my family on Friday evening when I took these. My sons were having quite the time on the slide and decided doubling up on the slide might be a fun time. Looks like they were right. 😉

Secluded Peace

exif-data-rob-moses-photography-canon-5d-mark-iii-300mm-f2-8-lTaking pictures of a city a night has a special kind of magic to it. I find this especially true when you are in a dark and secluded place like I was for this shot. My location was completely quiet and I was very much alone. Peaceful, relaxing and exciting all at the same time. I love it. 🙂

Summer Night Selfie

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-5d-mark-iii-ef-300mm-f2-8Not a proper selfie, but I did take this picture of myself :). I had been out shooting all night and thought before I packed it in I would jump in on a shot. To get the focus right, I propped my iPhone up on the 2X Extender I had with me with the “notes” app open for the white screen (as seen in the picture bellow). Once the phone was set, I ran back to my camera and auto focused on the phone and then set the lens to manual focus. I did a couple small adjustments, set the 10 second timer and ran back to my pre determined spot which was marked by my keys. I shot this photo about 4 or 5 times and it was easily the most fun I had all night!
