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.

Little Skateboarder – Stills & Video

On Saturday afternoon my 6 year old son Cameron and I went for a little skate downtown. We were heading to the very popular Peace Bridge to get a shot of Cameron on his skateboard in the middle of the bridge. However, when we got there the wind was blowing like crazy and it was kind of a bad scene. We decided to hit the streets in search of a new spot to shoot a photo. We found a spot with smooth cement, places to leave our gear and set up our cameras with very little interruption from passerbyers.

Not only did we shoot photos, but we were also rolling video on the whole thing for my vlog. I didn’t realize how many times I had Cam push off on his skateboard for the photo until I was going over the video footage at home. I didn’t count how many times he did it, but it was a at least 30 times! For a 6 year old to have that kind of patience on a photo shoot is amazing. I also noticed he took direction very well. I was super impressed by all of this at the time, but even more so after the fact. I think he’d make a good little actor or model if he wanted to go down that road. For now I think we’ll just stick to the skateboarding though ;).

Everyone seems to shoot photos at this bridge in Calgary, and why not its beautiful! I have been here a bunch of times, but on this occasion I decided to stand balancing on the back part of one of the benches there to get a little extra hight. I shot this one handheld with my Sony a7ii & Canon FD 50mm f/1.2. I can’t remember my exact settings, I think I was shooting around f/5.6 or so. I have said this before, but the image stabilization on the a7ii is just wonderful.

Oh and that title! Well you know, blue night and a red bridge. 😉

Just got a couple of people having their picture taken twice! I doubt they will ever see this one though ;). I shot this one in manual focus with my Canon FD 50mm f/1.2 at 1.2. I love that lens! The 2nd photo isn’t as cool, but I thought it was still worth sharing.

Island Among Towers

Here is a shot of the Calgary skyline with a nice view of Princes Island up front. Princes Island is a wonderful city park, with lots of trees, trails, bridges and plenty of open spaces to enjoy a picnic or just hang out with a bit of nature in the city. The modern Calgary skyline is a nice backdrop to such a great park. As you can imagine, this park is a great location for taking pictures.

I took this picture with a DJi Phantom 3 Professional flying camera ;).

Under the Moonlight

I shot this one a few weeks ago and keep meaning to post it. I love this bridge in the day and love it even more in the night. If you don’t know, it’s the Peace Bridge here in Calgary, Canada. If you have never been here, you haven’t been to the future ;).

Peace on the Peace Bridge

If you like a futuristic bridge, then the Peace Bridge here in Calgary, Canada is the one for you! I shot these photos with a fisheye lens. When I was getting the one of the guy taking a picture of the girl tossing up the “Peace” sign, I almost ran right into them because I was so close! haha. Thankfully they were cool and we had a little laugh :).
