My latest photos for the SWU Soccer Club's Tier 2 BU18 team are now available for viewing!

It's been a fun season, with so many close games that could really have gone either way. Sadly, we just missed qualifying for the Alberta Provincials this year. Hopefully I was able to capture something for the boys and you can find some good memories here for you to enjoy!

Here's the link: SWU 2016 Outdoor Photo Gallery

Cheers!

Happy New Year!

It's been quite a while since I've properly blogged here as I ended up spending most of the past year "mini-blogging" my photography work over on Google Plus instead. I'm hoping to do a little better this year and wanted to start off with my favourite photos I took in 2013. This was a year I really grew in doing post-processing work, having acquired a couple suites of great tools (OnOne's and Nik's to be specific). I also surprised myself by starting to do a lot more work with black and white conversions, which I wasn't really interested in before.

It was pretty tough to narrow this down to only twelve, but here's what I came up with. Hope you enjoy and here's to a great 2014! Cheers!

Friday's Photo – Cotton Candy Sky

One of the great weather features we get in Calgary are the chinook winds. These typically bring in uncharacteristically warm weather in the middle of winter conditions. Along with the winds, we often see some great cloud formations through the days and nights. This shot was taken on such a morning on my way in to work. I love how the pinks and purples are reminiscent of a big pile of cotton candy in the sky.

Friday's Photo – Synchro Height

The Canadian Open synchronized swimming national championships have come and gone and I'm happy and proud to report that my daughter's team claimed the Gold in their event! (and a few others :)

So continuing with that theme, here's another one of my favourite shots from the Provincials competition that seems so long ago now. Here are two of my daughter's teammates performing another routine. The rest of the team is underwater providing support and a 'launchpad'. The girl in the air was sent flying from standing on the shoulders of the one you see in the water. These shots are always a challenge to capture because you only get one chance and they occur in mere seconds. After almost 8 years of practice, I still miss a lot of these, but I'm glad I was able to catch this one!

Friday's Photo – Synchro Splits

As some of you are probably aware and/or have been able to figure out, my daughter is a competitive synchronized swimmer. Last month, I was the official photographer for the Provincials competition and took thousands of photos (still available to order! </shameless plug>). Interestingly enough, the Canadian Open Nationals competition is currently underway right here in Calgary!

To that end, I thought I would dig out one of my favourite shots from the Provincials that I took of my little girl. Here she is during her duet – she's upside-down, being boosted underneath by her duet partner, while she does the splits. One of the things I enjoy most about shooting sports is being able to capture those split-second moments where, such as in this case, the big water splash is frozen in time.
