Leica CL Rangefinder

Did I ever mention this beautiful 35mm Leica CL rangefinder film camera I have? I actually got this before I got my Leica M3, but the M3 has such a big reputation that the M3 kind of over shadowed this little beauty this past summer. I actually really love this camera. It’s small, light, beautifully …

Meet Dora The Labrador Puppy

I guess I haven’t mentioned this here yet, but my dog Juneau had puppies! This is Juneau’s daughter Dora! Dora is the only girl Golden Lab puppy Juneau had, so we are going to be keeping her. We got 8 other beautiful little puppies here right now though and I’m finding it hard to accept …

Oilers Self Portrait

I have been setting up a studio in my house for the past little while. I finally got most of it together just in time to shoot a quick self portrait for the start of the Edmonton Oilers season. I didn’t spend too much time on this photo because I just got the studio together …

A Laugh, A Jump & A Bump

On Saturday a friend of mine and I met up downtown for a street photography mission. We started walking up 8th Avenue shooting random photos of people walking by and interesting things we saw. As we were walking along something very interesting caught my eye, it was the Canon Image Square. I had heard about …

Studio Time with Mr. Blackman

A couple of days ago I was sitting in my office editing photos when I got a text message that read “Hey Rob, you still in Calgary?” I quickly replied with a “Yes” and “Who is this?” haha. To my delighted surprise it was my old buddy from Toronto Damian aka Mr. Blackman. Damian said …
