Portraits, Parties, Nuptials, & Food

November is a busy month for me, as always shooting pretty much every day. It's always the most busy month to shoot family portraits and business corporate events. I photographed two weddings this month, countless family portraits, several corporate events, a whole lot of boudoir sessions, and several commercial sessions including a fantastic food photoshoot last week.

Here are some of my favorite shots from some portrait sessions and the food shoot.

Johnston Canyon photos

We are very blessed to live where we do in a safe free country where we are surrounded with incredible people and such awesome natural beauty. 

I shot these with my Phase One while hiking at Johnston Canyon in Banff. What a great day 
my love of photography started with nature photography and I now spend the majority of my time photographing people so it is very rare that I get the chance to go out and just look around at the beauty we have here in Canada. I was reminded why I was drawn to what I am so lucky to do for a living. I got into the purity of purpose of photography.

Calgary Wedding photographer

I was thinking Back for the year and some of the highlights it has been a great year. It started with an Article I was featured in for Phaseone (click on photo for link to the article.)phaseoneperrypage1.jpg

Then I attended the DWF convention in Tampa which was one of the best things I have done in Many years. I was flat kind of growing but I felt I did not have the competative edge I used to, I have had been to a convention since 1991 I used to feel like I did not fit in with where the wedding and portrait industry was so I chose to look towards commercial fine art and fashion for my influence and I guess I still do. what I a realized when I went to dwf ( which Dave Quinn from D.Q. studios recommened to me) was that there was community of like minded people sharing concepts and a vision and are feeding each other. I reallly was and am inspired. I think I have got some of my best images ever in the past year. 
I have met some really cool people in my travels from Yervant to Joe Buissink to Markus bell to  my friend James Day   and many more awesome photographers. 
It find it really remarkable tat I have now been a photographer for 23 years and am more excited and inspired than ever before.
