More Of This Guy

Another self portrait here :). This time I decided I’d try a little harder lighting, so I used a silver bounce umbrella to camera left with a Canon 580EX ii Speedlite shooting into it. I also had a silver reflector sitting in front of me on a slight angle facing myself. I usually prefer to …

Urban HDR

I went out to shoot some photos with a buddy of mine on Saturday and we met at a popular Calgary park/lookout. The plan was to meet at this look out and then go to this old closed down factory to shoot some photos and we did just that. I’d say I got one half …

Christmas Selfie

If you have liked my Facebook Page then you might have already seen this picture, but if you haven’t then here it is haha. I shot this one Sunday night down the street from my house. This shot is less about me and more about the bokeh! ;). Camera: Canon 5D mark ii & 50mm …

Selfie in Seattle

I think these pictures are close to 2 years old. I was down by the water in Seattle at Piers 62 & 63 taking some pictures. For whatever reason I decided this would be a good opportunity to snap a little Selfie action :). Both of these pictures were shot with a 5D & 24-70L …

Man In The Fisheye Mirror

I was shooting a house yesterday and I they had these cool mirror’s in the basement. So I quickly grabbed a quick picture of my self in one of them haha. Fun times going down in the real estate photography business ;). Camera: Canon 5D mark iii & 16-35L ~ Settings: 2 seconds – f/14 …

Running with a View

I was out getting some shots of the Calgary skyline yesterday and while I was there I shot a couple pictures of some girls running. This path they were running on is a great place to run because of the beautiful view of the city. I personally don’t run, but this view is almost enuf …

Seattle at Night

These are couple shots I took in Seattle that I really like. I shot them last year from Kerry Park in Queen Anne (my favourite neighbourhood). If you ever make your way to Seattle, a stop at Kerry Park is a must. You can see the whole city, ocean and mountains from there. If you have …

Calgary Canada, Skyline

I shot this photo of the Calgary skyline lastnight. I showed up a little early and ended up having to wait close to 2 hours for the shot haha. I’m happy with the outcome though. The photo is a 5 frame HDR. Camera: 5Dii & 50mm 1.8 MK1 – Settings: 30sec 5 frames // f14 …

Self Portrait

The mood to shoot a photo struck me this evening, but I had no one to shoot. So I decided I would shoot a self portrait. For this shot I used a Canon 5D mark iii & 50L with one flash set up to camera left. The flash was a Canon 550EX Speedlite shot through …

Canon FD Lens to Samsung NX Converter

I have a Samsung NX100 mirrorless camera that takes really great pictures, especially of people. I also own some great old 70’s era Canon FD manual focus lenses from the film days. So I bought a FD to NX converter to use my Canon FD lenses on my NX100. The converter came in the mail today …

Love For The 1st Canon EF 50mm 1.8

Let me start off by saying I own and often use the Canon EF 50mm 1.2 L Series lens. However, I still love my 50mm 1.8 mark 1, it’s a wonderful lens and produces amazing images. The glass used in the mark 1 is exactly the same as the cheaper built “Plastic Fantastic” 50mm 1.8 …
