This weekend I photographed a hockey tournament in Airdrie. Lots of great action and I took some great photographs. Tracy was helping me out as she usually does if I photograph tournaments, and I could never do it without her, so I'm very grateful! Here are a few shots from the thousands I took :)

This morning I took my Vespa to the shop for its first service appointment. On my way home I found this nice place with a bunch of school busses, I thought it looked pretty interesting with a nice dark sky :) Busy weekend coming up, I'm photographing a big hockey tournament for the next 4 days... wish me luck :)

I spent the weekend in Penticton, BC, where I photographed Amanda and Greg's beautiful wedding. Click on the link to see their engagement photographs I did back on October 25, 2009 in Revelstoke, BC. The wedding was great, beautiful weather, and I loved Penticton. Here some of the photographs from the wedding day :)

2010-05-25 11:43 Tracy B!: LOVE THESE PICS! I think they are your best yet. Sure I am biased, but still! My faves are the ones inside the boat--the couple on the couch, and the bride by herself on the couch--AMAZING!

I just made it home from a wonderful wedding! I will be posting some wedding photographs very shortly but for now I thought I would post a photo of my MINI, because I love it just as much as my Vespa :) It is much harder to stop and take a photo with a car than with a scooter, there are really not many places you can pull over.

Tomorrow morning I'm driving to Penticton, BC to photograph a wedding! Before I go, I decided I would post some of my favourite photographs from today's family/grad photo shoot that I did at Fish Creek Park in Calgary.

Just came back from a wonderful family/grad photo shoot at Fish Creek Park in Calgary. Because it was so close to my parents house I decided to stop by and see my mom. This is a photo of my Vespa in front of their garage, I love that bush full of flowers :) I will post photographs from the photo shoot soon.

Sunny weather is finally here! Yesterday Tracy and I spent some time in our yard, had a nice little BBQ after playing soccer. Looking forward to have many BBQs this summer!

2010-05-17 10:08 Tracy B!: Wow, you sure make it look yummy! Kind of regretting not having any :(

It will be a busy week for me, I have some photo shoots and than a wedding to photograph in Penticton, BC on Saturday. Today was a relaxing day with Tracy and our friends! In the morning we visited Body Worlds & The Brain at the Telus World of Science... it was great, very interesting exhibit! In the afternoon my friend Greg and I went for a ride on our bikes. I'm happy that Greg still rides with me because I stop so much to take pictures :) Although my Vespa can go pretty fast, my style of riding is slow. I like stopping for photographs, like exploring different farm roads and finding where they lead.

2010-05-15 16:25 Maple: Did you name your new Vespa? Or is it a girl thing? Looks pretty sharp! When are you going to ride over here and show it off? I know Sergey would LOVE to have one ;) Now look at what you have done- he always ask if he could get one b/c you have one- ;)
2010-05-13 13:50 Greggy_Baby: I think you should have picked up some of those frogs while you were there and placed them in your underseat storage!
2010-05-13 11:24 Sergei Belski: Doesn't make a difference to me... I will explore anything :)
2010-05-13 08:45 Tracy B!: Obviously impassable does not mean impossible ;)

I had to do some errands today, like buying some chocolate at Costco, etc :) Also had to deliver photographs to one of my clients in Cochrane. It was a wonderful day and I had lots of fun riding my scooter.

I spent Saturday evening with this wonderful couple in the Town of Hanna, Alberta. We had a great photo shoot and here are some of the photographs :)

Yesterday when I did my photo shoot for the AirdrieLIFE magazine one of the guys was missing so I took some photographs of him this morning :)

As some of you already know, I upgraded my scooter. I got a 2009 Vespa GTS 250 and it is great! My longer trips should be much safer now :) Today the weather is not the best but I went out to scout some wedding locations around Airdrie and Calgary, and of course I stopped and took some photos of my new scooter.

2010-05-07 15:09 Sergei Belski: Thank you Dawn! Yes orange is better for photographs and I loved the colour, but this one is much better to ride and I love it! Is it ok to be in love with a scooter? Hmm...
2010-05-07 07:30 Dawn : WOW... upgrade already... I have to say I liked your orange one better.... Congratulations!!!!

As some of you already know, I'm a man of many talents :) I just came back from hanging some of my work, wedding photographs, landscapes, and animals at the Airdrie Public Library. I have 18 photographs displayed, pretty much all photographs are 20x30 canvas prints, and I think they look great! They are all for sale and will be displayed there for two months, so please stop by and see them :)

2010-05-03 10:40 Tracy B!: Looks Great! I'll have to take a visit to go check them out! Do you think the Teens will enjoy?

I did a bit of riding with my friend Greg this weekend. We rode in Airdrie, Calgary, and Cochrane, visiting different ice cream shoppes.
