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.

Rugby Wedding: Lindsay & Vinny

Clearly Lindsay and Vinny both love Rugby! Oh and their cute dog, who played a big part in their wedding. When I first met with Lindsay and Vinny they told me they wanted to do some type of Ruby wedding shots and right away I was excited, because I had never done any wedding shots like that and I knew it would be fun. When wedding time came around it wasn’t often I didn’t see that ruby ball kicking around and their dog was definitely there for everything too. Lindsay and Vinny were super fun and easy to work with. Their wedding party and parents were a joy to be around and I think we all had a wonderful time together!

Note: The two people who caught the bouquet and garter belt(it was on the ball) are a couple. 🙂

Thanks for a fun wedding Lindsay & Vinny!

 

Tokie The Cat

Sony a7ii & 55mm 1.8

Sony a7ii & 55mm 1.8

This lovely little creature is my wife’s parents family cat. Her name is Tokie and the shenanigans she has caused over the years has been that of legend. To keep things as brief as possible I will tell you just one Tokie Tale.

Last summer while visiting, I was letting Tokie inside before I went to bed. I open the front door and call for her. Sure enough like a good cat she comes prancing up to the door. As Tokie is nonchalantly walking by, I kind of notice something by her face. I close the door and scurry over to her as she’s walking down the stairs. When I stop her to get a better look I see a scene that looks straight out of a cartoon. There it is, a little tail wiggling around!!! “TOKIE!” I got her trapped half way down the staircase at a corner turn and lunge forward to grab her. In true cartoon style she spits the little mouse out! LOL The next thing I know I am franticly shoeing away a cat and trying to save a mouse. The mouse lays on the floor for 2 or 3 seconds as Tokie makes a run for it, then BOING! The mouse is back up on all fours and dashing from one way to the next. As I try and keep him in the corner I call for back up (waking up more than a few people I’m sure). Once the calvary arrives we get the mouse in tupperware container and back out the front door to fight another day. That mouse had one hell of a story to tell and just by the fur of his neck he had the chance to tell it. 🙂

Tokie the cat is a wild one to say the least, but I wouldn’t (and neither would she) have it any other way!

Cat

a6000 & Soligor 28mm f/2.8 @ 2.8

This is my little pal who goes by many names in our house. My two favourite are “Cat” and “Stinky”😅. This picture was really random. It was just a test shot and not a lot of thought or time went into it. I kind of like how it turned out though so it thought I would share it. I shot this photo on a Sony a6000 with an old manual focus Canon FD mount Soligor 28mm f/2.8. Pretty good combination if you ask me.

Doggie from a Walk

rob moses exif data canon t2i tamron 17-50mmOn Sunday I went to this cool Instagram meet up put on by @YYCinstameets. Everyone met up by the store down the street from my house and then we all went on a photo walk around my neighbourhood. It was pretty cool! This cute little doggy came along for the trip and I snapped this shot of him at the end of the walk.

Since this was an Instagram thing I figured I’d just share my Instagram picture from the day rather than a bunch of pictures here :). If your on Instagram, give me a follow and I’ll follow you back!

Feiyu G4 Gimbal Stick vs Handheld Video

Yesterday I shot a quick video comparison of me walking with a Feiyu Tech G4 Gimbal Stick vs Handheld video shooting. I shot the video with a GoPro Hero 4 Silver. I’d say the results were pretty straight forward, but let me know what you think.

Fetch

Canon 5D mark iii 70-300mm DO IS exif data

I was driving by this park the other day and I had never seen it before. As I drove I could see it was rather hilly, so I decided to take a little drive around to see if there was any good photos to be had. I landed on this location and thought I might get a good skyline shot. Then this lady started playing fetch with her dog. Perfect! With out that dog in the shot it would be a little boring. Nothing like a bit of mans best friend to spice up a photo ;).

Bit Of A Challenge

Camera: Canon 6D & 70-200mm f/2.8 at 200mm ~ Settings: f/11 – 1/320th – ISO 400

So the other day fellow photographer and blogger Steve Boer (www.steveboer.com) passed on 5 day black and white photo challenge to me. The idea is to post black and white photos for 5 days straight. I love black and white, but there aint no way I’m posting 5 black and white shots back to back haha. So I told him I’d post one for one day and that’s the best could do. However, I decided to post 2 (on one day).

With all that said, onto the pictures. These two photos were clearly shot on different days. The first one was shot on a more mild day and the 2nd one a much more cold day (yesterday). You could probably guess from the snow on the ground and the guys ski goggles! lol. This is how I feel about biking, if it’s so cold you gotta strap on the ol ski goggles to take a cruise, then it’s to damn cold for biking! ;).

PS, Although these types of challenges are fun, I probably won’t make a habit of doing them when passed on to me. Just an FYI so I don’t hurt anyones feeling in the future.

On my way home yesterday evening I made a quick stop to shoot a few photos. This girl ran right by me on the sidewalk before she looped around in front of my lens. I noticed right away that her dog was carrying a piece of wood in his mouth haha. I guess it would be a good thing to have if the opportunity to play came up :).

Uninterested Cat

The night before last I tried getting a picture of my other cat, but he wasn’t having any of it! I couldn’t even get the other cat to look in my general direction haha.  So last night  I decided to give it another go with my other cat “Panda Bear”. This guy wasn’t exactly into it either and this shot was the 2nd one of 2 I was able to shoot before he ran upstairs to hide under the bed haha. I’ll try again another time :).

Buster Doggy

This is my neighbours little doggy, “Buster”. I took these pictures during the summer while we were having a bit of a block party. The cat he is playing with is my cat and his name is “Mittens” haha. I know, I know, I didn’t choose that name, trust me! ;).

Beautiful Creek in Penticton BC

While I was in Penticton BC, this summer I saw many beautiful scenes. This scene was one of my favourite and I just stumbled upon it. I was walking a long a very random path because I decided I wanted to park in a little further away from my destination so I could take in some more of the town. While walking I noticed the beautiful light shining into the trees. I ran over, found a good vantage point and waited for some one to cross the bridge. The first person had a dog, BONUS! These little decisions don’t always work out, but I’d say it did on this day :).
