Shooting the Moon

Shooting the Moon

The full moon fell on Friday the 13th last week. I haven’t shot the moon before, so I went to the High Level Bridge with a bag full of gear. The moon was behind the clouds when I got there and stayed hidden while I waited at Sugarbowl. I gave up and went home empty-handed. But just before I went back inside, I noticed that the moon decided to come out. Here’s the result.

What’s in the bag?

What’s in the bag?

Ever wonder what’s in that bag I carry around ever day? Here it is. I have to carry lots of stuff as both a student at the University of Alberta and photo editor at it’s student newspaper, The Gateway. I like to carry light gear because I walk to school, class and photo ops throughout the day. That’s one of the reasons I shoot mirrorless. Here’s what I carry with me everyday and when I travel, and a photo of my film stuff.

Snow Valley

Snow Valley

Flying down a steep icy hill on planks of wood after only a few practice runs may sound terrifying, but that’s exactly what staff and students did last month. The University of Alberta’s Recreation Services held a ski and snowboard event at Snow Valley on January 25, including bus service to and from the University. I was invited along to take photos and decided to document the entire trip instead of focusing purely on the skiing itself.
