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 :).

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 ;).

Spokane Nights

I love wandering the streets of Spokane at night looking for photos. Riverfront park is probably one of my favourite parts of the city. There are tons of great locations to shoot photos in a very condensed area. This view is one of my favourite of the city. I love locations where I can sit, enjoy an urban park by the water with the view of a beautiful city.

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 ;).

A Downtown View

I shot this one from Tom Campbell Park by my house in Calgary. I don’t live to far from this place and on my way home one night last summer I decided to stop by and shoot a photo with my 300mm. Earlier in the night I was out with a friend of mine shooting some photos a lot farther away from the city, I thought I might stop off here and see what kind of results I got a little closer in. Not a bad shot, but then again it’s pretty easy to get a decent shot from Tom Campell Park.

Vlog: Calgary Event Awards

If you caught my post from a couple of weeks back (here), you know I was up for Best Photographer at the Calgary Event Awards. Instead of packing a camera along for the ride as I normally would, I decided I would shoot some video for my vlog instead. Watch the video and see how it all went down. It was a fun night and I hope to be back again soon!

Thanks for stopping by, Rob

Note: If you haven’t noticed I have added a vlog page here (found on the main menu). I will add vlogs as I make them. I don’t have any set days that I will be posting them yet, but they should be once a week at the very least. If your into that sort of thing you can just subscribe to my youtube channel at YouTube.com/RobMoses.

Beautiful Palace

exif-data-rob-moses-sony-a7ii-zeiss-24-70mmI took to the streets one night in Cancun to shoot some long exposures. This was the very first picture I took that night and I could have easily just walked right back into my hotel and been happy haha. They got some really beautiful resorts around Cancun, and this one is one of my favourite.

TriMet to the Bridge

rob-moses-exif-data-settings-canon-6d-50mm-1-4I had just walked across this bridge in Portland and saw the train coming up. One quick shot later and I had this picture. If I had a little more time to think I probably would have shot this with a slower shutter speed to show some movement in the train. I guess I’ll have to wait till next time to have another go at it.

The 2nd photo is just shot I took of myself while I was taking pictures off the top of this parking garage. 🙂

Drop The Bass

I was out kicking around the streets of Calgary last weekend shooting some photos with a friend of mine. I spotted this guy from across the street and knew I had to get a shot of him. He was drop’n the bass on some funky tunes and was real cool about a picture. Love people like that!

Surfer Dude

I was wondering around the streets of Isla Mujeres (a small island off the cost of Cancun) on day when I noticed this guy sitting here. He looked like a surfer dude who came straight out of the 1960’s to me. Well if they had cell phones in the 60’s haha. Anyhow, the dude has a real vintage vibe and I thought it matched up with the scene just perfect.

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. 🙂

Cancun Reflection

exif-data-settings-rob-moses-sony-a7ii-24-70mm-zeissI shot this one in the hotel zone of Cancun Mexico. I had to walk across this ledge of a building to set up the shot. The window used in the reflection had some type of mirror coating on it and it worked wonders for the photo.

I have added a shot from my Instagram account showing where I shot this photo from. You can see the window I used for this photo on the further side of me. I was set up at the far corner.
