Yesterday I was hired to photograph badminton at Mount Royal University. I enjoy badminton but its pretty hard to photograph it, the gym has very old lights and it is very hard to find a nice and clean background. Here are a few images.

My last penguin related blog post, at least for a while :) A couple of days ago I was invited by the Calgary Zoo to photograph a penguin exhibit official opening event for them. It was a nice event to photograph with many people in attendance and of course it was great to see the penguins :)

Look at the fish size that penguin is trying to eat. It was interesting to watch them getting their food.

I was sitting and editing photographs when I saw some fresh snow... I decided to take a quick break from working and to go for a short ride on my scooter.

2012-02-17 12:17 Sergei Belski: Thank you! Truck happened to be there :) Yes Mini is my car, I don't use it as much because of my Vespa :)
2012-02-16 19:41 SonjaM: The first one is picture perfect in red and white. How did you arrange for the truck in the background? I take a guess that the Mini is your's or the spouse's...

I spent yesterday in Lethbridge, AB where I was hired to photograph a couple of high school basketball games. Here are a few images :)

Earlier today I went out for a ride with my friend Greg, me on my Vespa and him on his BMW motorcycle. I usually ride alone, but it was nice to ride with a friend for a change, although I didn't stop for photos as much as I usually do :)

2012-02-11 09:54 Sergei Belski: I think in situations when people don't see you.. they still not going to see you if you add more colour. Just drive like they don't see you and be aware and ready for it. But I guess whatever helps :)
2012-02-10 19:11 SonjaM: Greg, how about a yellow bike? Just asking because I had a yellow F650GS once... didn't help the cagers on the visibility though...
2012-02-07 15:58 Maple: Greg...are you sure that other motorists will see you? ??? :
2012-02-06 17:11 Greg_Plesche: I really need to get the neon yellow pants to match!
