Winter Trips & Some Orb Spinning

I went all out during Christmas and spent many sleepless nights chasing after the stars and getting used to the cold Edmonton winter! A buddy also brought me to a “secret” spot in Airdrie on my way back to Calgary. I got to see some pretty amazing scenery out in the rangeroads of Airdrie close to Calgary! While out chasing the northern lights and getting to know more about stars. I realize there is a lot of extra traveling and time wasted when you arrive to a cloudy day!...

Engagement Session at Banff and Calgary Area

Traveling to Banff and Calgary for these engagement photos! Remember my long time best friend who pulled off a surprise engagement proposal at the Muttart earlier this year? Yes, these two love birds stand in front of my lens again for a formal engagement session this time with a little camping trip on the side! Unfortunately the whether that week changes extremely fast, and rained like crazy! We got to take a few while the rain gave us a break, but I decided to do one more in the...

Fashion Photography Session

Amidst all the insanity moving to Calgary, I managed to get some fun shoots in my system. I don't remember how long I have stepped away from shooting at studios indoor! Today I got Jennie and his friend on board at a vacant real estate I got hookups for, and tried out some ideas. Jennie was super excited as usual, with loads of clothing to choose from and put me on the indecisive train. These are the results! hello...

Merry Go Around Carnival Themed Engagement Photoshoot

So K-Days have began and I have since made lots of plans to shoot a whole lot of things that I envisioned. The day before I worked with a girl and my assistant while planning my route for the couples scheduled to shoot this week. It was seriously a whole lot of work! The crowd and noise was definitely a major issue I had to overcome for my client. I tested this shot in the Merry-Go-Around many times on my own before going for this final product. This...

Baja Bronze Sherwood Park Bikini Shoot

Another beautiful bikini shoot for Ashley for Baja Bronze Tanning Studio, this time with a twist! This photo shoot session has been in the making for the longest time! Not only did I build the lighting set up (as opposed to the traditional speed light or strobe lights), I have taken much attention to every detail and the background. The shoot was super fun with Ashley as usual, and everyone involved (along with the proud coworkers and owner of Baja Bronze) had a lot of fun! I even...

Winter Family Portrait Session

I have anticipated this shoot with the family for a whole month!After 2 extremely cold weekend, Edmonton finally got warmer! Having taught one of the girls from a former teaching job,  we were reconnected after a friend referred them to me. I have to say, I was a bit nervous about this whole thing because I had to put my teacher hat away for a day and order the family around for poses and instruction to get good pictures. Oddly enough, the friend who reconnected us thinks that I...

Calgary model CoCo

Calgary Trip Fashion Photography

I've had the opportunity to travel down to Calgary with a buddy a while ago, and I met up with an old friend who happens to be super talented and had some modeling experiences. for more info on CoCo you can visit her page here. This shoot was totally unplanned and uncalled for! We drove down with all the equipment I own simply because we don't know what location and how everything will be! I almost always plan my shoots, but this time I decided to let the shoot take...

New milestone and YouTube Chanel for mpStudio

whoa! 200+ likes on my facebook page! To celebrate, I decided to make a speed edit video of my favorite light painting photography on Photoshop. This couple of weeks have been crazy! First a road trip down Calgary and living in a hostel, then meeting Renee Robyn from Renee Robyn Photography, and getting a chance to eat dinner beside her and talk to her for hours about photography and life!  Not only that my mpStudio Photography YouTube channel was finally born a few days ago! There are so much I'd...
