Back to School Brothers

Kids went back to school today! They were both really excited, more excited than I have ever seen them actually. I’m so happy they were so excited to go back, because they didn’t get a full year last year. They started a little late in the year at a new school and then the year …

Quiet by The Creek

A few days ago my son Cameron and I were on a bike ride and we dipped into this wooded area to do a little photo location scouting. We found this spot, but at first nothing came to me, I just knew I loved the location. After I gave it some more though later that …

Minolta 50mm 1.2 vs Pentax 55mm 1.8

I have been shooting with my Minolta 50mm f/1.2 for a long time now. I have always known the short comings of the lens and had accepted the trade offs (like lack of sharpness wide open) for the f/1.2 speed. I have also had my Pentax 55mm f/1.8 for a long time, but haven’t shot …

Test Shot

This was just a test shot I took the other night. I’m thinking I will use this location for a portrait shoot. I think it’d be cool to have someone leaning on that railing on the right side the frame. With a person there I’d change up the composition a little, but it would be …

Waiting

I wanted to take a picture like this, but I didn’t have the location. I knew I wanted some lights in the background and I needed some kind of street light to hit me in the front. I drove and walked around Kelowna for about 2 hours before I found this spot. I tried a …

How you doin?

We took the dog out for a walk by a river last night and I noticed this horse through these bushes in his or her little stable. There seamed to be a clear path to the fence so I though I’d walk over and say hi. I took a couple pictures as I do. The …

Boca De Tomatlan & Yelapa

A picture from Boca De Tomatlan, Mexico came up on my Instagram stories “memories” yesterday. Once that memory was in my head I had to go and look at some of the pictures I took there last year. I love looking back at these pictures because those trips down there are always so fun. My …

Newfound Beach

I knew I had to take my dog for a walk and I kind of wanted to get the kids out of the house for a little bit too. However I was not about to just take everyone walking around the neighbourhood as we usually do because noticed a lot more people walking down the …

Signs

I went for a little stroll around the neighbourhood yesterday. I walked by this travellers hotel that had all these cool little signs posted on some trees and a posts. I snapped this quick one and kept on my way as I didn’t want to be hanging around any longer than I needed too. I’m …

Sunset from the House

We had a lot of things going on around the house last night. As life was happening I couldn’t help but notice the beautiful sunset going down out in front of our house. Since the sunset was already in full swing I knew wouldn’t have enough time to get any where good to shoot more …

Juneau’s New Harness

Juneau got a new harness yesterday and I figured since she was style’n in her new gear I’d better get a couple pictures of her before it got all doggyfied. I didn’t spend to much time taking these picture. Just got her in the front yard and asked her to do a few poses for …

New Balance 997S

I was standing at my front window looking outside trying to think of a picture I could take while the sun was about to set. Then this idea popped into my head! My beautiful New Balance 997S’s that have been waiting in the wings would be just perfect on this dome light in front of …

Joshua

I haven’t took a real picture of Joshua in a while and I needed to test out some Fuji film simulations. Joshua was kind enough to volunteer for photo shoot. Trying to get this kid to smile and look at the camera isn’t easy, he always just wants to make a serious face for some …
