High Bridge in Spokane

I was kicking around Browns Addition in Spokane one day last fall and found this nice view over looking High Bridge Park. One look at the picture I took and you can guess as to how they came up with the name haha. Although the park name may be simple, it is definitely accurate because that is one super high bridge!

Straight Out of Camera Strangers

I am the proud new owner of the Fujifilm 56mm f/1.2 lens! I just got it yesterday and I had to go test it out, but I needed some people to take pictures of. I zipped over to Crescent Road in Calgary and met some strangers who didn’t mind having their picture taken. The featured picture is of Jesis, he was shooting a time lapse so I went over and started talking to him and after some Instagraming I got a picture of him. I also met this really friendly girl who was taking pictures of the skyline with her phone. We go to talking and we made a deal that I’d take some pictures of her with her phone and then I’d take some with my camera haha. Then the black and white picture, well these guys just came up to me lol. These guys were also out taking pictures and just came over to see what kind of pictures I was getting. Of course, I had to get a shot these kindred spirits. The night was fun and I got to meet some really cool people, always bonus!

All the pictures are straight out of the camera with no edits. Except for the B&W and the city shot. I just wanted to see how the color Fuji files would turn out in a black and white conversation. And the city shot just needed a touch of contrast a tiny pull back on the highlights. 

The sun was in full sunset mode casting a very warm/pinkish light here↖︎.

Fujifilm X-E1 & Canon 50mm 1.2

I picked up this Fujifilm X-E1 on consignment the other day when I was down at my local camera shop. The body was there for $250, so I thought why not. At that price you can’t really go wrong. The screen has some scratches on it, but that kind of thing doesn’t bother me. I got my vintage Canon FD 50mm f/1.2 on the camera and have been testing it out for the past week. Everyday I learn something new about the camera and I think I am close to figuring out the settings so the jpegs come out the way I like. FYI, I have been shooting raw since forever, but the Fuji JPEGs are supposed to be what’s up so I’m moseying down that road right now.

The pictures bellow (except for the camera shot) are just some random shots I took with the camera. All the photos are straight out of the camera with no edits applied to the pictures. From one picture to the next I had wished I made a little adjustment here or there, but I am getting closer to what I want as the days go on. I am sure by this time next week I’ll have that thing dialled in perfect, well perfect for me at least haha.

Coffee & A Wedding: Amy & Dwight

Amy and Dwight were so much fun! As I am sure you can tell from the pictures these two and their friends are a riot to be around and it was a pleasure for me to be able to be a part of their day. We started out at a coffee shop the girls have spent a lot of time hanging out in, and it was a wonderful idea because I absolutely love the photos we got there! Then we stopped off at this little park and shot a few more photos. The actual wedding photo shoot part of our day was by far the quickest I have ever shot. We had a whopping 15 minutes to shoot our photos! lol. As you can imagine the shoot was peddle to the metal trying to get as many pictures as we could in such a short time. To my surprise we were able to get what we needed and everyone was pretty relaxed :). Amy and Dwight seem like the type of people that no matter what the situation is, they will find a way to make it fun and that’s exactly what this wedding was.

Thanks for the fun wedding! Rob

Penticton Creek

I just happened to be walking by this creek at just the right time it seemed. I saw the spot where I took this picture from the corner of my eye while I was walking by with my family. I told my family to keep going and I would catch up and ran over to the creek. I shot a few photos and just as I was about leave I saw this girl walking onto the bridge. I quickly whipped my camera back up and snapped the photo. It was a lucky break that she came walking along with her dog, because the photo with an empty bridge is just not the same.

DIY Deadcat Mic Windscreen

I made a DIY video on how to make a Deadcat style windscreen out of the tail of a stuffed cat (teddy bear) haha. I did a couple tests and it worked really good! If you care about your video’s audio you might like this video. 🙂

Just Weeks before with Amy & Dwight

I went kicking around Princes Island Park with Amy & Dwight the other day to shoot some engagement photos. Funny thing about this photo session is it was only a few weeks away from the actual wedding! Not exactly typical, but who cares ;). We really lucked out with the weather because the days leading up to the shoot were really ugly out and then on the day the sun was shinning and it was sweater weather. Good weather, good people and a good location is a recipe for fun and that’s what happened.

I also shot a bit of video along the way too and have added it here if your into that sort of thing.

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 feel to the photo that does have it’s own quality. Figured I might as well just toss it up here too :).

Autumn Spokane View

The last time I went to Spokane in the fall I got a pretty wicked room that had this beautiful view! The deck was actually massive and I really should have got a picture of it, but I guess I forgot haha. Anyhow, if you want a good view this hotel (The Red Lion) has a lot of good rooms with nice views.

I thought might as well add a picture of myself on the the deck too ;).

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.
