Still Skateboarding

A lot of things in life change, somethings don’t. I have been riding around on my skateboard since I was around 8 years old. At times I skated more than others, but it has always been a part of my life and I’m sure it always will be in one way or another.

I shot these photos last night with the help of a friend. I set up the shot with on flash to camera right. I had my friend hit the shutter button for me while I did the skateboarding. 🙂 Thanks Nathan!

DIY Deadcat Mic Windscreen

I made a DIY video on how to make a Deadcat style windscreen out of the tail of a stuffed cat (teddy bear) haha. I did a couple tests and it worked really good! If you care about your video’s audio you might like this video. 🙂

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 ;).

These 3 boys have been skateboarding around together for the past couple of years. This year they have been on their boards more than ever. I have found myself skating around the neighbourhood with them and remembering my own childhood of skateboarding. I thought I better get a picture of the original squad together before they grow up even more!

From left to right is my sons Cameron and Joshua and their best pal Leo.

Skateboarding in Airdrie

Rob Moses sony nex-7 fisheye exif data

I was skateboarding at a skate park in a town 10 minutes north of the city yesterday. While I was there I noticed this guy skating one of the hand rails there and he was landing everything he tried. Prefect candidate to shoot a few photos of, so I asked him if that was cool. He was good with the photos, so I shot a few and amazingly he handed every singe trick with what looked to be “ease”. The guy is awesome! Unfortunately I didn’t catch his name, but I gave him my card and told him to email me and I’d send him the pictures. If he emails me I’ll update this post.

Someone To Talk To

I was out shooting some street photography this weekend in Calgary. I saw this guy on a street corner and couldn’t help but notice his mannequin head sticking out of his shopping cart haha. I imagine him walking around talking to this head, but I don’t know, I could be way off! All’s I know, is if I was walking around with a mannequin head all day I’d probably start talking to it haha.

I am not really in the habit of asking people if I can take their picture on the street, I usually just do it. However, when you run into a guy with a head sticking out of his shopping cart and a sharp ski poll on the side of it, better just ask a brotha haha. So in this case I did just that and the guy was more than happy to let me take a picture. It’s nice to see someone who can be having that ruff of a go at life still be able to smile when seeing the joy some one else get’s from their little eccentricities.

I hope things turn around for this guy! Good luck out there you two ;).

Skateboard Selfie!

I’m taking it back to the old school here with this dorky skateboarding self-portrait I shot yesterday haha. I had 2 flashes set up for this shot. I had one 580ex ii on camera left about the hight of the top stair pointing up and another on camera right about shoulder height. I trigged the camera with a Canon RC-1 remote, which is in my right hand pointing at the camera :).
