For 5 years now its been a tradition of me taking a photo of our house with a different vehicle in front of it. Here is this year's photo that I just took. Take a look at my previous photos from 2010, 2009, 2008 and 2007 . Our tree is bigger now, we didn't have much snow this year, and we have more Christmas lights up :) My last post of the year... HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

2011-12-31 19:12 Vanessa Day: Kinda neat seeing the progression and also to see how much snow we've had in past years!

Can you believe it? December 29 and we have such a nice riding weather here :) I'm enjoying my time off and today I went out for a little ride on my Vespa.

For Christmas I got a GoPro camera from Tracy. I was looking at the camera for a while and thought it would be great to have it for my scooter trips and to use it for some interesting angles on my photo shoots :) Today I did a couple of tests. For the Vespa shot I attached camera to the top of my helmet, it worked well but I would need to find a bit better position and try some different angles.

For the bicycle shot I attached camera to Tracy's bike while she was biking behind me. Not many places on my bike for it, I would have to think about it. For the car shot I attached camera to the outside of my windshield. This was just a quick test and I'm looking forward playing with it more :)

Some photographs from a commercial photo shoot I did earlier this week for Fortis Alberta in High River, AB. I loved the foggy weather we had that morning :) Looking forward to another photo shoot for them tomorrow morning, this time in Okotoks, AB.

Tracy and I upgraded our bicycles. I'm not sure if this is an upgrade or not but we purchased two new folding bicycles. We got a Brompton and a MINI folding bikes, they both fold in seconds and fit nicely into my little MINI Cooper car :) Hopefully when the weather will get a bit nicer we can do some biking trips.

2011-12-13 22:17 Sergei Belski: Vita, hopefully we can all go biking together one day... on the beach or in the snow.. on the beach would be better :)
2011-12-13 19:09 Vita: wow, they look very cool, but I'll get me a beach cruiser, hoping it will just fit in the back of my convertible:)
2011-12-13 13:01 Trevor Z: Sweet, thanks. I'll have to check it out next time I'm there. Didn't see it the last time, so they must be hiding them!
2011-12-12 14:24 Sergei Belski: Thank you Trevor, good to hear from you! I got it at the dealership when I took my MINI for service. It looks great and very comfy bike as well!
2011-12-12 12:02 Trevor Z: Nice. Where did you get the MINI Bike from?

For the third year in a row I was happy to be asked to do a group shot for this company... here is one of the fun shots that I took this morning :)

2011-12-15 06:08 Tracy B!: TOO FUN!

Back in August I had a pleasure working with a great photographer Edward Ross. Edward needed a second shooter for one of his weddings in Canmore, AB and I was more than happy to help! In my 6 years of photographing weddings, oddly enough, this was my first time not being the main photographer. It was great to see how Edward works and not to have the pressure of being the main guy for a change :) Here are a few photographs that I took.

Here are some of my volleyball photographs that I took for Mount Royal University on Saturday night. After photographing for 6 years at the same facility it is pretty hard to stay creative, but I'm trying by running around and photographing from different angles.
