Do you have the rocks to throw down in the octagon? Will you have what it takes to pass your opponents guard? Can you land the hammer right on the button? No, no, I'm not talking about the UFC. I'm talking about the newest winter sport in Winnipeg.Read More
Copious amounts of snow, nipping winds and the worst drivers imaginable! That's right, winter is in full swing here in The Peg! Over the holidays we got blasted by snow... like a lot of snow! Here in Winnipeg we had record breaking amounts. In December alone we had more snow than the entire winter of 2015-2016. We really lived up to the nickname "Winterpeg Manisnowba". I don't mind the snow, but it kind of put the kibosh on me getting some northern lights photos. To give you an idea of how much snow there was, I was stuck in my grandparents drive way for 3 days until the rural snow plow came to dig us out. I was kind of bummed out that I didn't get the chance to shoot the aurora. On the upside, over the month of December I was able to get some really fun, wintery pictures. I love shooting in crazy weather conditions, so this month was great for me. Here is a selection of some of my favourite snowing/winter shots to remind you that baby, it's cold outside. Chill out and enjoy! :)
Also here is some bonus content. Just a snowy video!
We've been experiencing an unusually warm November this year in Winnipeg. While I do long for the full winter experience (which I'm certain we will get), I'm also loving the Vancouver-esque weather. Rain, fog, frost and mild temperatures are not the worst things, especially if you are a photographer. On Sunday morning we woke up to hoar-frost covering the city. When mother nature presents you with a shooting opportunity like this you must take it. With that in mind we decided to roll out to FortWhyte Alive, a pristine prairie oasis just on the outer edge of Winnipeg. We were not disappointed. The yellows and browns of autumn were replaced with a white layer of ice crystals blanketing everything in sight.
Here are some of the shots I came out with. Hope you enjoy!
