I shot these over Christmas as it snowed using Kodak Tri-X 400 film. I love this film! It has a wide exposure latitude and good contrast and I always get great results.
These were shot during my trip to Normandy, France in August. They are from the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial at Omaha Beach. Omaha Beach saw some of the bloodiest fighting on D-Day and the battle and cemetery are both featured in the movie Saving Private Ryan. These were shot using FPP RetroChrome 160 film […]
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 […]
Whenever I’m back home on the coast, I try to sneak in a hike or two while visiting family. These were taken during a hike through Lighthouse Park in West Vancouver. I like to hike a few of the lesser used trails (fewer tourists) and my favourite leads to Starboat Cove. I snapped these with […]
The shot of the canoes is one of my favourite photos. I love the light and dark of it. These were shot on Fomapan Action 400 film which along with Kodak’s Tri-X are my favourite B&W films.
I love shooting these two statues in Burnsland Cemetery and have photographed them many times with different cameras and film. These were shot with my Canonet QL17 and a roll of Velvia 100. I love the pink and purple tones of these shots.
I came across this really cool bicycle in Arromanches-les-Bains when I was in France this summer. Arromanches is where the British built a Mulberry harbour after D-Day in World War II. The remnants of the Mulberry harbour can still be seen today. I love rescale film and the red, orange and gold tones you can […]
When I was in France this summer, I took along a roll of Lomography’s LomoChrome Turquoise XR 100-400 35mm film. LomoChrome Turquoise is modelled after Lomography’s LomoChrome Purple film which in turn is modelled after Kodak Aerochrome (this post by The Phoblographer explains it all). LomoChrome Turquoise produces some wild color shifts, but it isn’t […]
Every year, the Calgary Zoo hosts an event for photographers called ‘Focused’. During the event, the Zoo opens two hours early for photographers to photograph the animals in the early morning light. These photos of Chilean flamingos were taken during last year’s Focused event.
I own a 35mm back for my Holga 120 CFN, so one day I loaded it up with some Lomography Slide/X-Pro 200 ISO film and headed to Burnsland Cemetery. Unfortunately, I had a little mishap while I was taking photos. The back cover fell off my Holga and completely exposed the film. I tried my […]
Sad news this week: the Holga has been discontinued. They won’t be making this iconic camera anymore. Some are happy to see its demise, but they are missing the point. The Holga is beloved because of its light leaks and vignetting. It’s not a DSLR. It’s a plastic toy camera. You can do things with […]
I took these photos of hay bales from a viewpoint overlooking St. Lambert-sur-Dives in Normandy, France. St. Lambert-sur-Dives is the location where Major David Vivian Currie of the South Alberta Regiment won the Victoria Cross for his efforts and bravery during the Battle of the Falaise Pocket in World War II. If you look closely […]
I shot these back in June at Heritage Park using a roll of Ferrania Solaris FG Plus 100 film that I bought from Katie Shoots Film (back when it was called ‘Curating Cuteness’). They turned out better than expected considering the film expired in 2007. The old steam locomotive runs all around Heritage Park and […]
These photos of bronze statues of First Nations people were taken in the Artisan Gardens at Bow Valley Ranch in Fish Creek Park. The Artisan Gardens honour the First Nations people who used to live in Fish Creek Valley.
These were taken at the Calgary Zoo in the Prehistoric Park. The dinosaur exhibit is actually pretty big and on a perfect day, it’s a great place to snap photographs. I think the cross-processed Fuji Sensia 100 film gives the scene an ethereal, other-worldly look and feel that is just right for photos of dinosaurs.
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 […]
