Our Temporary Wix Flash Website

Wix.Com FalconRose Photo Website

Unfortunately, it's not as unique as I'd like it to be. I intend to put some work into a functional website in the near future and upload it to my Shaw account in which I hope to have a proper URL for it.

New Equipment on the Way.

FalconRose Photography has just acquired two new critical pieces of camera equipment. We (my wife and I) should be taking delivery of the Nikon D300s camera body and Nikon AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8 G ED lens as of the first week of May.



This Nikon D300s has the capacity to ramp up the frames-per-second rate from 6fps to 8 fps when coupled with the MB-D10/EN-EL4a combo

The Nikon D300s with the MB-D10 battery grip looks like this:


The lens and the camera will increase our flexibility to be able to shoot in low-light conditions (such as the interior of a church). The ability to rack-up the ISO if necessary and retain quality of image is crucial especially in both wedding and event photography. This will be a turning point for FalconRose Photography and a good step towards the other equipment that we need to make this business viable in the competitive market of wedding and event photography.

Update: Equipment received and being used.

Galen's and Cameron's School Portraits

I decided to go the American School style for school portraits. I was tired of the one or two sitting postures that are chosen for school portraits and I've found that the highlights were blown out. I decided to do the portraits myself and follow the individual style of outdoor photography. And then threw a throw-blanket over the bookshelf and used that as a backdrop for the indoor photos.

The ones of Cameron were taken indoors after the school photographer came and took his classmates' shots. I refused to let the school photographer do theirs.



Maybe we'll try another photoshoot with the both of the kids at school, either on the playground or on the basketball court outside.
