Over the years, I’ve shot a lot of photos at Union Cemetery. Most of the old headstones were made from sandstone and they have not stood the test of time. Sandstone is a very soft sedimentary stone and it is a poor match for Calgary’s climate. These photos were taken with LomoChrome Purple film and […]
A few years back, I photographed a Lancaster bomber running its engines. Afterwards, I wandered into the hangar and, to my delight, discovered a model making competition. Rows of tables covered in all sorts of model planes, tanks, cars, and spaceships were set up in the hangar. While the adjudicators were busy judging the models, […]
I took a trip to Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park a few years ago with a few other photographers. As we wandered around the ranch, we came upon a dog tied to a fence post. Naturally, we stopped to take photos. Soon after, the the family that owned the dog took notice and two children joined […]
These are from a trip to Lundbreck Falls in southern Alberta. They are from the day I drove down the Cowboy Trail with my photography club. It was a fun day and I would recommend joining (or forming) a photography club if you can. Photography can be a lonely hobby sometimes, so it’s a lot […]
These are from a day I spent at Spruce Meadows photographing show jumping. I was quite thrilled by the way these photos turned out, especially #1167 above. It took me a few rolls before I figured out exactly how to get the best out of my Canon EOS 3 that day. I wanted to capture […]
The Bomber Command Museum of Canada in Nanton, AB is home to a Lancaster bomber (FM-159). On certain days during the year, they take the Lancaster out of the hangar and run the 4 Packard Merlin engines. I was there one summer and snapped these photos on Imation Scotch Color HP100 film. (I also have […]
The front end of this hot rod was shot a few years back at the Show ‘n Shine in High River. I was in town photographing hot air balloons when I stumbled onto the Show ‘n Shine. I’m glad I did. It was a perfect way to end an already amazing day of photography: hot […]
I shot these in Fish Creek Park using discontinued and expired Solaris FG 100 film by Ferrania. I adjusted the ISO to 50 to compensate for the age of the film and I was really excited how the photos turned out. I wish I had more of this film.
These photos are of a horse named Kolor Kode that I shot during a show jumping competition at Spruce Meadows one year while attending a photography Meetup. I shot these using expired Fuji Super HG II 100 film that I picked up on eBay.
I like shooting rare and expired film. I like it when I discover an old film that not only still produces good results, but also has a unique look or color palette. These are from a roll of Valca Grano Fino Positiva cinematic film that I purchased from Labeauratoire. Since Valca has a recommended ISO […]
I spent a cold winter’s day wandering through scrap metal and abandoned junk on a small farm north of Calgary. These are a few of the photos from that day.
These photos come from a road trip down the Cowboy Trail with some fellow photographers. As we headed south on Highway 22, we stopped along the highway to shoot these photos of hats on fence posts.
It’s Christmas Eve! Tonight my family will have a great big dinner and then open a few gifts!
