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 …

Orange

I shot this photo with the help of a friend of mine. We sliced the orange and then put it between 2 panes of glass and set it up standing. We had one Canon 580ex ii (triggered by pocket wizards) set up directly behind the orange. We then took a piece of paper with a …

Lake House Wedding: Sunyoung & Santi

Anytime I book a wedding in late October or early November in Calgary I worry about how the weather will be. Usually this time of year we are walking around in snow! Sunyoung and Santi’s November wedding definitely had me concerned about what kind of weather we were going to be dealing with. Lucky for …

A Shot with Joshua

It’s not often I get to have a picture with my son Joshua. You would think I have tons, but unfortunately I don’t! I have decided that is all going to change and I am going to make more of an effort to get in pictures with my children. They grow so fast and it …

Stefany

I rarely post head shots here, but I really like how the lighting turned out on this one. Shadows can be your best friend when shooting portraits and I’d say that is the case for this photo. For this shot I had one Canon 580EX ii to camera left shot through a white umbrella. Thanks for …

New West Wedding Styles

I have a bunch of wedding photos that I posted to my old blog that shall never see the light of day again. I thought I would grab some of my favourite ones and post them on here from time to time. I shot this one a while back in New Westminster, BC. The location …

Waiting for the Storm

I shot this one on Saturday night. It had been raining all day and the clouds looked rather menacing. I thought rather than just another city shot, I might hop in front of the camera to add a little something to the photo. I was shooting with a friend of mine and he had a …

Silver Springs Wedding: Ashley & Dustin

The leaves and grass got green just in time for this wedding. The sun also came out right when it needed too! Sure the harsh light provides its own problems for taking pictures, but the ambiance and over all feeling the emerging afternoon sun brought with it was well wroth the trade off. This was …

Michelle

My wife Michelle needed a head shot for something or other, so I took this picture of her yesterday. The lighting set up I used consisted of 3 Canon Speedlites. I had one 580EX ii to camera right shot into a white bounce umbrella, one 580EX ii to camera left shot into a smaller white …

Wedding Party in the Park: Caroline & Danny

I shot Caroline & Danny’s wedding last weekend and it was a blast! The ceremony was an intimate setting, yet with a full house. The entire ceremony was beautiful and everything went rather smoothly. Well, it went smoothly after some forgotten flyers showed up 15 minutes late haha. After the ceremony we zipped over to Confederation Park …

4 Year Old Violet

This is the 3rd photo shoot I have done with Violet and her mom. Violet is about to turn 4 years old and for the past couple of birthdays we have done a photo shoot. It’s so fun to see her over the years and watch how she has changed. This year Violet was easier …
