35mm Juneau

Last week I took my Labrador dog Juneau up to a local park here in Kelowna called Knox Mountain. I wanted to take some pictures of her, but I wanted to try something new (or old depending on how you look at it). I decided I’d try getting a few 35mm film photos of her. …

Life on The Edge

I took a little trip out to Fintry Provincial Park a couple days ago to shoot some photos and make a video. I was doing a little review of the Nikon Nikkor 14mm f/2.8 lens. I shot some photos in this abandoned house and then made my way up a mountain to a this waterfall. …

Annie in the Alley

I always love looking down this alley because of the eclectic collection of painting in this one. This is actually down the same alley as the barber shop in the pervious post. This Annie painting always stands out to me though. If your walking by the Annie just kind of catches your eye. I’m assuming …

Barber Shop in The Alley

I’ve never got a hair cut while in Nelson, so I cant say if this barber shop is any good or not. But I will say that if I did need a hair cut and I was in Nelson, this is the place I would go without question. There is something about entering the shop …

Minolta in Nelson Part 2

I uploaded the second part of my Minolta 800si / Nelson BC video yesterday. In the video I walked around a couple of my favourite parts of town and shot some photos on Kodak Gold 200 35mm film. I’m happy with how this video turned out, so I think it’s worth a watch. The picture …

Nikon Nikkor-H 85mm 1.8

I recently got my hands on a Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 prime lens. Nikon released this version of the lens in 1964, so it’s definitely got some vintage qualities to it. I love the old look of the lens and it produces good photos. The lens isn’t perfect, but for the low price you’d pay for …

Pictures of Strangers (video)

When I was in Calgary in September I wondered around the city taking pictures of strangers. I wanted to shoot some photos of people with my Pentax 6×7 medium format film camera, but I didn’t have any models. I figured I might as well just go walk up to people on the street ask them …

Pelican Case Alternative

I bought this Pelican style case for my Pentax 6×7. I never thought I’d ever want to use a case like this for a camera. But when I thought about traveling with my 6×7 the idea of it banging around in the back of a car with a bunch of other suitcases in just a …

More Vlogging

So I decided I am going to try and make more videos this year. I don’t know how many as of right now, but the plan is just to make them till I dont want to anymore. I love making videos, but they are so time consuming at every step. We’ll see how long it …

Nike Destroyer Hike

So my family and I went for a wicked hike just outside of Puerto Vallarta. I shot a little video along the way and thought it was worth sharing here. This is the first video I really used my DJI Osmo gimbal in and I am very happy with the results. I think I’m going …
