I took a daytrip to Nanton back in June and just had to photograph the grain elevators while I was there.
This is a shot of the Fish Creek Library that I took using a Mamiya C220 TLR (twin-lens reflex). I love my Mamiya TLR! It is a big, beautiful, all-mechanical, medium format TLR that is a lot of fun to shoot.
I had originally shot these for Holga Week, but never got around to developing the roll in time. These were shot in Calgary’s Central Memorial Park on a roll of expired Lomography Lady Grey B&W 400 film. The park honours all those who served for Canada in various wars. I thought I would share these […]
Here are some more photos from the 1991 Stein Valley ‘Voices for the Wilderness’ Festival on Seabird Island. Many bands took the stage that weekend and sadly I can only remember one of them: Spirit of the West.
In July 1991, the Stein Valley ‘Voices for the Wilderness’ Festival had relocated to Seabird Island. I met up with some friends at the festival that weekend and shot these photos of the guys doing some face painting and body art. These were taken with my old point & shoot camera and a roll of […]
I went hiking up to Widgeon Falls last summer with my best friend. Widgeon Falls is located in Pinecone Burke Provincial Park in BC. I’ve done this canoe trip on Widgeon Creek and hike up to the falls many times before and I am never disappointed by the beauty of the park. Up at the […]
I took a trip this summer down to Nanton, Alberta to the Bomber Command Museum and while I was there came across these Packards on display. These were shot using FPP RetroChrome 160 film that was then cross-processed. I love Ektachrome and FPP RetroChrome is nothing more than expired government-surplus Ektachrome 2239. I thought these […]
I went to France this summer and had the time of my life! These were taken in Paris on the Pont Neuf (new bridge) where it crosses the Île de la Cité. The Pont Neuf is the oldest bridge in Paris. There is a platform there called la Place du Pont Neuf with a statue […]
Since today is Halloween, I thought I’d post a few photos of cosplay. I shot these at the 2014 Calgary Comic Expo. The last photo is of the Sons of Fenrir. They are reenactors who portray 9th century Viking / Norse culture. The detail of their costumes and campsite is pretty amazing and they reenact […]
I bought a Smena 35 online for super cheap. It has a lot of manual settings and is fun to shoot. These are from the first roll I ran through it and you’ll notice a lot of lens flare in the photos. These were all shot at Fish Creek Park.
I bought a used Lomo LC-A on eBay because I couldn’t afford an LC-A+. Unfortunately, despite the seller claiming the camera was in great condition, it was not. The film counter doesn’t work and there’s something wrong with the shutter. It randomly does not fire. I’ve tested this camera with fresh batteries and I can’t […]
I shot these selfies with my Praktica MTL3 and a Pentacon 50mm f/1.8 lens that I received for free! How I got this camera is a great story and I’ll tell it one day, but for now I thought I’d post the selfies. These were shot on Kodak Ektacolor Pro Gold 160 GPX that I […]
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 […]
I also bought an Instant Back for my Belair X 6-12 Jetsetter. It’s a lot of fun (my niece and nephew love it!) even though it’s not the easiest thing to use. Fuji Instax film is notoriously sensitive to light and even though it’s rated at ISO 800, I think it behaves more like ISO […]
More shots from around Camp Chief Hector including the adventure playground. These were shot on Fomapan Action 400 and it’s become one of my new favourite B&W films. I just love the deep blacks that it produces. Fomapan Action 400 and Kodak Tri-X are two film stocks I can’t live without.
