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 […]
One winter, I hiked through Fish Creek Park and snapped these photos with my Superheadz Blackbird, Fly TLR. The first photo (#1103) is of the Willans Family barn which was demolished a few years ago. The old log barn was built around 1910 by Norman Willans using white spruce trees that line the banks of […]
Last year, Sarah & I drove out to Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump, a UNESCO World Heritage Site whose history goes back approximately 11,000 years. We hiked along the interpretive trail where I took these photos.
Sarah & I spent an afternoon wandering around Ralph Klein Park. Even though Kodak UltraMax film is considered to be ‘consumer’ film, I quite like its color palette. I was happy with the way these turned out.
I recently bought an inexpensive hot shoe to PC sync adapter that allows me to use many of my film cameras with my studio strobes. I made Sarah pose for me while I tested it with my Olympus Trip 35 and took this photo.
Back in January, I decided to take on a 52 Week Photography Challenge. Since I shoot film, it’s difficult to have the photos from each week of the Challenge processed in time to have them posted in the corresponding week. So I have to post my photos late. Week 1’s challenge was to take a […]
These are the first few photos from my Diana Mini. I got my Diana Mini for free from Lomography for spending $100 on film (so it wasn’t really free). I quite like this little camera and am pleased with the results. Nearly every photo I took with this camera over Christmas was in focus and […]
One of my favourite places to shoot photos is in Union Cemetery. I love the rolling hills, trees and the view of the city. The cemetery is filled with history as well as many deteriorating headstones made from sandstone. Sandstone is very soft and does not withstand weathering over time. I shot these with a […]
These are the last of my photos from the Calgary Zoo back in February 2014. I had hoped to take more photos of the penguins, but I ran out of film.
