Alpine Mountains Landscape Photography

A couple weeks ago, a friend of mine and I, went on a short 8km hike just north of Lake Louise to the Bow Hut for the night.  Once we arrived we dropped our packs and continued to explore the area and climbed up a small peak called the Onion Skin.  We had a great adventure and took our time, especially on the way there, to capture some great photos.  Thanks to Martin for exersising his patience while I fooled around with my G11 "Point and Shoot" so we could come home with some fantastic memories! 

I couldn't resist posting a few pictures to this blog.  It is not my usual style of photography ie: landscapes! Although I do not normally shoot them, I love a great landscape photograph.  Many of them were "environmental portraits" that include Martin as a subject within the landscape.  The G11 proved again to be a great little alternative to a bulky SLR on a backcountry trip like this one.  The camera shoots RAW which still allows me to have some room to edit once in Lightroom.   Hope you enjoy!

Calgary Engagement Photography

red and green are complimenting colors.  I love this photo for the excellent shape(s) and patters.  And of course the excellent models!!!
Hello again!  Tis the season and I am getting swamped with a wide variety of photography projects including families, graduations, city contracts and of course weddings ;)  My wedding packages also include and engagement session where I meet with the couple months in advance so they can get to know me and get used to being in front of the camera.  The couple also has the benefit of having a ton of photos to use for anything from invites to online wedding websites.  I always return a disc of fully edited images in both "High Resolution"format (for printing) AND a bonus "web size" that is made to share online and look best when viewed from a screen.

I met with Darrell and Lindy in Calgary for their engagement shoot and came home with an abundance of excellent photographs!!!  Darrell and Lindy both pre-scouted some local hidden hotspots that they wanted to have their photos taken.
