Calgary Sunrise

On Wednesday morning I was driving my children to school and enjoying this amazing sunrise. After I dropped the kids off I stopped at this city look out a few blocks from my house. I didn’t have my camera with me so I just shot this photo with my phone. I think the saying is …

Misty Montana Mountains

I shot this photo real quick as I was taking pictures of my Westfalia this summer in Glacier National Park. I figured since I was surrounded by all this natural beauty it would be a shame to not get a straight up landscape shot. It was actually raining when I took this picture and a …

Guard Lion

I knew this new lion statue was put up at a park near my house in Calgary, but I hadn’t got around to going to check it out. Last night I had a late night engagement to attend so I thought I might as will head out a little early and see if there were …

New Bridge in Edmonton

I was up in Edmonton, Alberta not to long ago and I took a stroll along one of my favourite streets (Saskatchewan Dr.) with some nice views of Edmonton. Along the way the new bridge jumped out at me when I looked at it straight on. Of course the bridge looks great from many angles, …

Urban Sunset

Sunsets over a city are always the best to me! I love the light shining off the glass buildings and different reflections in the windows. Usually when I shoot a sunset like this I get more of the city, but the tighter shot does show more detail and is pleasant to look at in its …

Grizzly Bear

My family and I were driving through Glacier National Park this summer and we saw this Grizzly bear just wandering along the side of the mountain! The longest lens I had with me was a manual focus Canon FD 100mm f/2.8. When we saw the bear my camera had on a 24-70mm so I scrambled …

Crystal Ball

So my friend Allen has been shooting a bunch of photos with this crystal ball he got. We were out shooting photos the other night and he pulled out the ball. I had just finished shooting a photo I wanted to get at the location we were at and he was still going at it. …

Ice Cream Night

When I set up for this photo I had no intentions of having any people in the shot. I just wanted to get the sign and the building in the frame. I was all set up and waiting for a bunch of cars to go by so I could capture all the lights. These 3 …

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 …

C-Square in Calgary

I only learned the name of this spot from someone who posted a comment on my instagram account. You would be forgiven if you thought C stood for COLD! lol, however it is actually “Celebration Square”. I saw a band playing music here last summer, it’s a pretty cool little spot. Not exactly jumping with …

Camera Man

After everyone in my house went to bed last night I decided to go out and shoot some photos. I had the idea for this picture a while back and I knew if I didn’t shoot it soon it would have to wait until the spring. The weather in Calgary has been pretty warm lately, …
