Tracy and I just came back from Fernie, BC. So much snow!!! Skiing was great but we didn't ski very much because we got stuck behind a car accident and the next photo was our view for a couple of hours. We had a wonderful time and it was a great trip!

2011-02-03 09:13 Violetta: your car can make it through that much snow??? U R lucky you have Tracy and Mandy with the shovels:)
2011-02-02 17:01 Ekaterina: So snowy in the mountains! we have to go there one of the weekends, haven't been there for some time now...love the contrast of your car and the snow.
2011-01-31 11:34 Greggy Baby: Gee I wish I had 3 other people to help me shovel my driveway. I am sure I would have been able to finish much sooner. My poor little Matrix would have gotten stuck in those conditions for sure!
2011-01-31 06:42 Tracy B!: Yikes, if that was the highway, I don't think we would have made it! Hopefully the awesome snow conditions stick around until Cam comes up this way!!!
2011-01-30 21:40 Sergei Belski: Thank you Kim :) The highway was in a better condition, this was on a side street :)
2011-01-30 21:25 Kim Quade: Beautiful pictures, but I got cold just looking at them....burrr! Is the picture with your car in it the highway from Fernie?

I had a couple of photo shoots for AirdrieLIFE magazine this morning and now I'm off to photograph a couple of basketball games :)

Day 3: We did so much walking in Vegas, I don't know how I will play soccer tonight! Here are the rest of my favourite photographs from Las Vegas. I took so many photos and it was very hard to chose what photographs to post :) We had a great time in Vegas but its good to finally be home!

2011-02-03 09:11 Sergei Belski: Thank you very much!
2011-02-02 17:03 Ekaterina: Great shots, my favourite hotel is on pic #12, so pretty!
2011-01-21 12:59 Greggy Baby: It was interesting reading tidbits of information about Las Vegas after the trip. Such as Las Vegas has 18 of the 24 largest hotels in the world. The largest being a complex in Singapore but with the MGM Grand being a close second and the Venetion following a close 3rd. It is amazing actually how much Vegas has changed in the last 25 years. Just watch some older movies or TV shows that have been shot there such as the Original Ocean's 11, Diamonds are forever, or the Vegas tv show. The place looked like a barren desert with open lots all over. Vegas' transformation is actually quite impressive. Alot of the traditionalists though much preferred the old Vegas to the flashy new Vegas.
2011-01-17 22:33 Sergei Belski: Violetta - 3rd shot is of some glass flowers on the ceiling of a hotel lobby.
2011-01-17 21:09 Violetta: I love Tracy's pics the best, and the one of Vegas light under the palm trees with the blu sky...and what was that so bright and colorful??? meduzi???
2011-01-17 10:56 Maple: Tracy- was tha pizza 'healthy'? It looks like it with all those veggies..heheeh :)
2011-01-17 10:53 Maple: AWESOME SHOT!!!
2011-01-17 10:38 Sergei Belski: Thank you very much for your comments! NY NY photograph is my favourite as well :)
2011-01-17 09:08 Greggy Baby: I'm still tired after all that walking around! Those two guys on the Segways had the right idea! The Cirque show with the Beatles was the best part! I hope nobody on the strip ate their own head :)
2011-01-17 07:25 Paula: These are absolutely amazing. Love them all! Especially that one of NY NY.
2011-01-17 06:25 Dawn: You have done a wonderful job of capturing Vegas... Amazing pics!!

Day 1: Tracy and I are still in Las Vegas on a mini vacation :) I'm a little behind on posting because I just don't have any time in front of my computer. These are from the first day of our trip. We left all the snow and cold behind and checked into the Mirage Hotel. We arrived pretty late so we didn't do much else other than have some amazing burgers for a late dinner :)

I had my photo studio all ready for a portrait photo shoot earlier today, but at the last moment it got rescheduled for a later day. I already had everything setup so I thought I would take a quick self-portrait :)

Today I spent some time at Calgary Motorcycle Show. If you like motorcycles, I recommend you go and see it tomorrow :) I liked many different motorcycles and Ducati below was very nice, but my favourite by far is still a Vespa!

This morning I got a call from my friend Kurtis from Spindrift Photography and he asked me to come out and take some photographs of him kite skiing. This was my first time photographing this sport so I was happy to try something new. Here are a few of my favourites, I hope you like the photographs :)

2011-01-05 14:02 Tracy B!: Great Pics! Hard to pick a fave, but would have to finalize on the 2nd last one! So, what the wife wants to know...did you try it?!

Tracy and I spent some time at the Calgary Zoo today and I took some photographs of the Zoolights. We had a great time! I think tomorrow is the last day they have them on so if you will have some time, go see them :)
