Finally wrote my exam today, now I should have some more time to go out and take photos. Headed out for a quick drive to the docks, nice sunset tonight. Maybe I'll pull out the tripod this weekend.

Day 240, A visit from Jacob

As I mentioned yesterday, I'm locked in my office tonight studying for an exam I have on wednesday. Jacob came for a little visit so I took a quick snap with my iphone. Gotta love his drool guard.

Day 239, I love studying!

After 4 hours of studying today, this is what my textbook looks like to me. I know, I know, only 4 hours? I really don't like studying. My final is on wednesday.... thank god. Then I'll have more time to get out and create more fine art nature photography. But for the next few days I'll be buried in the books...

Day 236, Plastic

By this time next week I will be accepting all major credit cards! And yes, I'm getting lazy with my daily posts... I've been busy studying for my final exam next week and working on creating a higher quality product for my fine art prints. I'll be posting about that very soon.

Day 234, How's my signature?

I'm currently in the process of changing how I offer my fine art prints, more to follow on this with some special offers coming soon. One thing I've been considering is where and how to sign my work. Then I started thinking, "How does my signature look to other people?" So........ what does everyone think?

Day 233, iPhone HDR

The iPhone has a decent little camera on it. This was taken with HDR turned on. Not bad for a phone. There's also rumours that the iPhone 5's camera will be just as good as most point and shoots.

Day 232, The Hachey's

Went out for a family outing by Kinoso Ridge this morning. We don't have many photos of the whole family so we set the camera on the picnic table and set the timer. Molly doesn't understand the concept of looking "at" the camera.....

Day 230, Back to Nature

I've been so busy since going back to work that I've been neglecting my fine art nature photography. This ends now. I will make more time to get out there and create more nature fine art photography. So stay tuned for more nature photography!

Day 229, I'm not even going to try to beat this photo.

Amy Jo took this photo of Jacob with her iPhone today.... I'm not even going to try to top it, she gets Day 229 of my project. Jacob looks all tough in his little Bumbo with his puppy slippers, lol. "What you looking at?"

Day 227, Molly's new haircut

Molly got a much needed haircut today...... she wasn't too impressed but she doesn't look like a street dog anymore.

Day 226, Some new canvases!

Just got a few new canvases for the art gallery in Beantrees. I'll be putting them up on wednesday if anyone is interested in seeing them in person. I just love the dock panoramic..... maybe I'll keep that one in my office....

Day 225, Is there always a storm cloud over Cold Lake?

This cloud was directly over Cold Lake South yesterday. I found it funny how it was clear skies all around...... I only had my point and shoot with me so I had to take five photos and stitch them in photoshop to get the whole cloud in the photo, that's how big it was.

And as promised, here's my bonus photo for Day 224 that I forgot about. Anyone know what kind of "butterfly/moth" this is?

A day in the life.... of Jacob! (Day 223)

Since Mami, Papi, Grammy and Grampy live so far away, we decided to follow Jacob around with a camera and make a little documentary slideshow of his day. Our goal was to have it ready for Mami's birthday.... which was yesterday. Happy birthday Mom! We worked on this late last night but wanted it to be perfect. So here it is. A day in the life of Jacob.

If you want the full effect, make it full screen and then select 720p to watch it in full HD. Enjoy!

Marc and Laura Engagement, (Day 222)

Had the pleasure of doing engagement portraits for Marc and Laura today. I was really excited about this shoot because I love motorcycles and they wanted to do something with their dirt bikes. Mosquitoes were out in full force but we made it thru the whole session. Here's a few of my favorites from tonight. Congrats on the engagement guys and thank you for letting me create your engagement portraits.

Day 221, I love Apple

I switched to apple in September 2006 and had my first problem last week. The DVD drive stopped working. My warranty runs out in 8 days and I had it fixed today. It was in the shop for an hour and a half. I'm not complaining. If I can go another 5 years without an issue I'll be happy. I'd also like to highly recommend Macrotronics in Cold Lake, their service was exceptional and super fast.

Photo taken with my iPhone.... another apple product I love.

Day 220, Where does time go?

Working on one of my assignments tonight, didn't realize how much time went by, next thing you know the street light comes one..... If anyone knows how to make more time, please let me know.

I liked the cool blue sky and the warm street light as well as the look the screen window gave the photo. Didn't even leave my desk for this one.

Day 219, What is it?

This one looks kinda obvious to me, but I always get weird answers, so we'll see. Once again, first person to leave the correct answer in the comments on the blog wins a free 8x10 of any of my fine art prints.

Day 218, Urban Eye

Just liked the way the cracks all lead to the manhole on 4 sides, centring it very nicely.

Winter Magic in the Canadian Rockies

Here is a slide show of my tour I did with Darwin Wiggett this past winter. What a great experience. I highly recommend any nature photographer to book one of his guided tours. They book fully a year in advance but you can always be put on a waiting list.

To get the full experience make sure you watch it in 720p fullscreen on youtube.

If you enjoyed the slide show and would like to purchase a print or canvas, there is more info as well as a gallery on my website or you can just drop me an email at

Day 216, Shore Paterns

Was playing with the shoreline while Molly swam in circles looking for a stick. I like the pattern of the pebbles and the reflecting ripples in the water.

Day 214, Squiggly Line

Took a quick snap on the way back from a test flight today. I think I may go and rent a helicopter one of these days and take some photos of the Marina.....

Day 212, It's not easy being a baby

The Hachey family was working on a little project today. Stay tuned for "A day in the life of Jacob". Our little star was getting a little tired as you can see. Such a hard life.
