Aurora Chasing Oct 8-9th – Edmonton, Alberta.

On October 8th, I had been awaiting word from the small October 6th CME, due to arrive between the 8-9th. All day, I had been updating the data from Solarham, along with getting reports from some of the guys over at the Alberta Aurora Chasers group on Facebook. By 9:30 pm, it seemed that the […]

Edmonton Skyline – June 19, 2013.

A few weeks ago, while getting myself ready for working night shift, I looked outside the window early in the morning, and the sky was filled with so many different colours of incredible oranges. I thought to myself, “Holy crap shooting the Edmonton skyline right now would be wicked!” I loaded up my gear as quickly […]

Aurora and Storm Chasing – July 9-10, Tofield, Alberta.

Some of you may have already seen one or two of the photos from this night that I posted on the Mike Isaak Photography page on Facebook. When checking Solarham.net earlier in the day, I noticed that the Bz was tipped sharply south. I also received a message from Curtis Reimer stating the same thing, […]

Kananaskis Country (Part 5 – Reflections)

Luke and I decided to head down to the clumps of aspens down by the shore and play around with some reflection imagery. It was partly cloudy, and slightly windy which made for some interesting light play on the trees. Instead of making your standard reflection shots, I decided to try out some abstract/painted reflection […]

Kananaskis Country (Part 4 – Shooting at longer focal distance)

Just a little post here as it’s been a while since I last blogged. Still slowly going through photos from September and sitting on them for a bit before posting. This image was taken just off Highway 40 in Kananaskis Country. It is a 5 shot blend using Exposure Fusion in Photomatix. I often shoot […]

Kananaskis Country (Part 3 – Long Exposure)

While out in K-Country, I also had the chance to do some long exposure photography. The photo below was after the first day of shooting various locations along Highway 40. This is Wedge Pond, the place we camped out at for both nights. We waited for the almost full moon to rise up high enough […]

Kananaskis Country (Part 2 – Unknown Creek)

This image was taken on a sunset shoot from the first day in K Country. Luke and I arrived here well before sunset to scout out compositions and this is the one I went with. While Luke was running around shooting different compositions I stayed right here and watched the sunlight fade away on the […]

Kananaskis Country with Luke Austin (Sunrise at Spillway Lake)

The weekend of September 25-26, I met up with fellow photographer Luke Austin to shoot somewhere in the Alberta Rockies. It was his last week in Canada and I was itching to shoot fall colors in the mountains so we decided to meet up in the Banff area. I tried leaving Edmonton early enough on […]
