More City

This is another angle from an evening a couple of weeks ago. I was hopping for a wicked sunset, but just got a bit of dusk haha. This picture is still alright. 🙂

Winter Rocky Mountains

Well it’s still very much winter around here (in Alberta)! But at least it make the mountains look nice. 🙂

Sunset Over There

I went out on Sunday night hopping to get a shot of the sunset over the Eastside of downtown Calgary. I stopped off at couple different spots before landing on this location. I made my way down the side of this little hill, set my camera up and waited. Unfortunately there were too many clouds over the mountains to the west and not enough over the buildings over the east side of the city. Not all was lost though, because I was able to get this shot and to be honest I am happy things worked out the way they did, because I would never have set out to take this angle and now that I see the finished product I rather like it. 🙂

Rocky Mountain Sun

I was out in Banff, Alberta this past weekend on a little family ski trip. The weather was pretty cold and it was snowing most of the time so I didn’t get a chance to take many pictures. I shot this photo on the day we left right before we headed home. The pictures from the ski hill are just some snaps I took with my GoPro.

2010 Seattle

I was poking around some old pictures of mine the other day and I came across this one. I shot it back in 2010 from West Seattle. It’s not the entire skyline, but it’s a nice little bit of it. I miss living in the Pacific North West, because you can actually get out during the winter and not freezing to death haha.

Snowy Edmonton

I was up in Edmonton last weekend and it was super cold and snowy! I stopped off at my favourite photo spot and shot a few quick city shots before I left town.

Great Falls Sunset

I don’t get down to Montana as much as one might think you would living in Calgary. It’s relatively close to get down there, but every time I leave the city I find myself wanting to get back to Washington or Oregon and that’s where I usually go. I think I am going to make an effort to find my way around Montana this summer and check out more of what the state as to offer. I shot this photo in Great Falls, Montana.

Instagram vs WordPress

I keep falling off my blogging regimen these days and I put a lot of the blame on Instagram! I think I have wrote about this before, but it just rings so true it is hard to avoid. I wonder how many other people feel this way? For me, I get a lot more interaction on Instagram so it only makes sense to dedicate at more time there. However, the longer format of the blog gives more creative freedom, but at a cost, time. Time is my main enemy here, I find when I am going peddle to the metal on Instagram I don’t make time for WordPress and vice versa.

Maybe time management is more of the issue here. If there was ever a time I should be ripping both full blast now is the time. During the winter in Calgary I find it too cold to go out much, so I am indoors more than I usually am. This extra time at home should give me the time to do both. So maybe I will start posting more again, I hope I will. I guess we’ll find out tomorrow haha.

Still Skateboarding

A lot of things in life change, somethings don’t. I have been riding around on my skateboard since I was around 8 years old. At times I skated more than others, but it has always been a part of my life and I’m sure it always will be in one way or another.

I shot these photos last night with the help of a friend. I set up the shot with on flash to camera right. I had my friend hit the shutter button for me while I did the skateboarding. 🙂 Thanks Nathan!

A Seat Under The Moon

I was out taking pictures with a friend of mine on Saturday night and I took a minute to grab a seat and enjoy the view. The moon was bright and the city was perfect. I love being out in the city at night and this moment was one to remember.

The Sprawl Jump

I was out shooting photos on Friday night and ended up at this place. I thought a near by art piece would make a good fisheye shot, but it turned out to be a bust. Since my other photo idea wasn’t working out I noticed this bench and I thought I might try jumping off it. Since I was wearing a t-shirt of my friend Jermey’s company I thought I’d ditch the jacket in the cold and big up his journalism project (The Sprawl). Jeremey is doing great journalism work here in Calgary and if your into the local political scene you’ll defiantly want to check him out.

To shoot this photo I set up my camera on a tripod at its lowest setting and framed the shot. I set up one Godox V860ii flash sitting on my camera bag to camera right. Then I started jumping around like a crazy person! 😉

On The Edge

I was wondering around the city last night looking for some new locations to shoot a photo. I went up a set of stairs between some buildings and ended up here. As soon as I got to the top of the stairs I new I wanted to get out on the ledge. I checked it out and had the vision for the photo in my mind right away. The ledge was on some pretty tight quarters, so I had my tripod spread out just enough to stand on the opposite side ledge and I put one flash on the ledge behind my left foot. I shot this photo with my Nikon 14mm f/2.8 and I don’t think anything less would have been up for the job. The picture turned out exactly like how I had pictured it in my mind and when that happens it’s always a good feeling.

Flight of The AE-1

I’m sure this idea isn’t new and there are people all over the world tossing their cameras around, but I this particular version was my idea. Location was key for this photo, as the background (even though it’s blurry) would play a big part in the over all feel of the final product. Since its winter in Calgary I thought I’d better find a place that had some contrast to the white snow everywhere. At first I was going to have a blurry city in the background, but I’m always shooting city stuff so I thought a bit of nature might be good to mix things up a bit. The trees provided the needed contrast and the glove I wore seemed to go well with the camera and over all scene. Once I had all that figured out I just stood in the snow with my camera pointed at this one and tossed it up and down until I got this shot.

Photography is so fun! 🙂
