Triple Flip | Calgary Commercial Photographer

Something a little bit different for me. I worked with Triple Flip Clothing on one of their recent Flip Girls Photo Shoots. Here are some of my favourite images.Calgary Family Photographer (Photo by Dana Pugh)danapugh.comFlip01Flip06Flip05Calgary Family Photographer (Photo by Dana Pugh) danapugh.comFlip04Flip08Flip02Calgary Family Photographer (Photo by Dana Pugh) danapugh.comFlip09Flip03Calgary Family Photographer (Photo by Dana Pugh) danapugh.com

I'm slowly trying to build my commercial portfolio and would love to work with other local brands. Especially once I have my own studio in the spring!!

My Tribe

Photography is, at times, a solitary career. Most people probably don't realize that, but I spend a great deal of time by myself. Sitting in front of my computer--editing, answering emails, dealing with my never ending file management needs, and very occassionally planning my next photographic endeavour.

I consider myself lucky to have begun my career quite a few years ago now...back when the size of the industry was a bit more manageable and the possibilities of meeting amazing photographers online and in person seemed easier. Thanks to that, I have managed to grow a rather large group of artist friends whom I lovingly refer to as 'my tribe'. Some within my tribe I talk to quite regularly. Others are there when I need them...and, I am there for them. It has been the single greatest thing I have done for myself as an artist, but also as a business person.

Luckily for me, two of my tribemates were recently in the Calgary area. I was able to spend a day with them out in Banff and Kananaskis. It was a very casual and laid back day filled with wonderful conversations and just a wee bit of picture taking. Here are a handful of my favourites.

Magical Light

When you live in Alberta, sometimes Mother Nature shows up to your sessions. If you are really lucky, she's in a good mood ;)Calgary Family Photographer (Photo by Dana Pugh) danapugh.com Calgary Family Photographer (Photo by Dana Pugh) danapugh.com_S5C4242_S5C4650Calgary Family Photographer (Photo by Dana Pugh) danapugh.comCalgary Family Photographer (Photo by Dana Pugh) danapugh.com

We started this session walking through a magical forest that lead to an amazing canyon and ended canoeing into the sunset. All that in the space of a couple of hours is what you get in Alberta's amazing backyard. How lucky are we to live here?

I was a little bit grumpy that day...it's true, but the second we turned off the highway and headed towards Kananaskis...with the spectacular fall display and the gorgeous setting sun...well, I felt at peace. It is truly a magical place. Such a pleasure to hang out with this family for the 3rd time :)

I have room for an evening session this week...and space for one my session on the weekend, if you want to take advantage of the amazing fall we are having.
