We don’t have the biggest downtown core compared to some cities, but I think it’s pretty specatular and it’s only getting better with new innovative structures/buildings going up every year. This image almost makes the core seem small, mainly due to the bridge/river being the focal point and the utilization of a wide angle lens.

My goal initially when doing this quick shoot of downtown Calgary, was to capture the fall foreground, I’ve caught a lot of shots like that in the past so I went near the river, the clouds though got so epic and I swapped out my wide angle in favor of 70-200, only regret is that I didn’t get a better panoramic of this, maybe a bit more top/bottom.

“Trying to differentiate your shots and body of work prooves difficult in a world where digital cameras are in every household.”

Waiting for my soccer game, I was down by the river on the east side of the river, looking for some unique spots/shots that I haven’t captured in the past. After mucking around with a few shots I noticed the tower peaking through the bridge, perfect opportunity to capture something unique. Trying to differentiate your shots and body of work prooves difficult in a world where digital cameras are in every household.

Calgary Downtown

One of my favorite spots for shooting downtown Calgary, you really get a focus on the bigger skyscrapers and once the new brookfield building is up, it’ll really all come together nicely. 

I’ve started working panormic shots more and more into my shoots. I feel like capturing spots like downtown Calgary really favors a wide panormic look that encompasses all the epic aspects of the architecture and scenery that our city holds.

This is the downtown Calgary shot that I was aiming for, I still need a graduated filter for my 14-24 lens, it would allow for a little less movement in the water, a silkier effect, but still allow the beautiful sunset to burst through and keep the buildings exposed properly.

Here’s a sneak peak of some pucoming posts, I was lucky to shoot a newly engaged couple, as well as a quick trip out to Moraine Lake in the fall, it was overcast but I still came out with a few gnarly shots.

Calgary to Vietnam

Ha Long Bay in Vietnam was the highlight of my trip, it’s a UNESCO world heritage site, a dream for photography, and all around was a great experience. If you haven’t heard of it, you can read about it here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H%E1%BA%A1_Long_Bay –

We started our adventure in the bay on our ‘junk boat’ a name completely unfitting for what it was, a three story monster of the sea, fitted with a huge crew including a chef, two captains, and a bartender! As we set out to see ha Long Bay, the scenery was breathtaking, I busted out my gear that I had hauled through 1,000+ KMS in the last 8 days by boat, taxi, bus, train, plane, and bicycle and shot away, I was familiar with Ha Long Bay and had an idea of what to expect but was really taken back seeing it in person, truly an incredible unique place unlike anything I had ever seen before.
We first got to stop at a popular tourist area where you can hike up really high to catch a birds eye view of the surroundings, it was REALLY hot/humid out, and my huge camera backpack didn’t pull any favors, I was a sweaty mess at the top and I dropped my bag and started capturing the beauty around.

 

 

Seen below, a bunch of junk boats stationed near the beach while tourists soak in the water and climb for a birds eye view.

This is where things got epic, manned with a tandem kayak we got to get out onto the waters ourselves and navigate through the endless limestone Karsts. Huge shout out to my wife who championed the kayak while I snapped pictures, and yes if you’re wondering, I brought my new lens (14-24) and camera onto the high seas, I had a lot of faith in our ability to stay upright! Fortunately everything worked out smoothly, we coasted through and I was able to catch some incredible images. As we were ending the journey, the sun was starting to set, so I told Allyn that we needed to get hammer down and get back to the boat! We paddled hard and I hopped out, ran to our bunk to grab a new memory card and rushed to the top of the deck to capture an incredible sunset.

“I told Allyn that we needed to get hammer down and get back to the boat!”

After I caught a nice panoramic of the sunset, I ripped back to the room and grabbed a zoom lens to capture some other details in the bay! Once the sun was set, I put the gear away, we had an incredible fresh cooked meal on the boat and then I tried my hand at fishing for squids, it didn’t go so well, but was fun to unwind and give it a go.

One early morning after an overnight train ride, we were busing into our home stay which was set in the beautiful countryside, we stopped 3/4 of the way there for breakfast and I opted to rip out to explore with my gear, I asked our wonderful guide if he could just drive up the road once they’re done and I’d keep an eye out for them, it’s times like this on trips where I find the best opportunities to capture unique shots and moments. About 500 meters from where they were having breakfast, there was an incredible rice field backed by big mountains and I was able to get in there right as a lady was tending to her crops, it made for a great candid on the spot shot.

I had SIX days with lots of free time, I ended up working most of them away, but I was able to grab a few shots in between a trip to the airport. I started near the reservoir, I wanted to see if there was a good angle with the water and the city in the background, it didn’t turn out well, got my dog out for a quick rip to see a few spots and then we jetted back to the car to try something new.

First legit spot we stopped was on bow trail looking into the downtown core along the new west LRT line.

Some of my best selling/most used photos are of this beautiful city, you’d think I’d capitalize on that, but the excitement isn’t there like it is when traveling or chasing a storm. The photo on the right here was captured for a client that needed a series of images featuring the city of Calgary as well as the mountains, they were used for advertising/promotions for a huge conference being held in Calgary. Many times I’ve caught my pictures of Calgary being used without permission as well, a big reason why my site carries watermarks on all photos for the last 3-4 years, it just became too much of a hassle to track infringers down.

This next series in this blog ‘ Pictures of Calgary ‘ #2 features a shot that was already dropped on Instagram (Click to check out) I went down to the peace bridge to see if I could grab a new angle/feel of this incredible piece of architecture, unfortunately Pokemon Go players were ALL OVER the top and surrounding spots of the bridge areas, there was also wedding photo shoot in there and I was crunched for time, so I went down below the bridge, left the exposure open and composed a panorama, I’ve shot this before but it was in the fall and there was more fog, I really like how the lighting came out from this shot.

Right after that I hopped out from below in my sandals, jammed my toe really good, and caught one more shot before I booked it to the airport.
