Edmonton Sports and Attractions

I was born and raised in the City of Edmonton and it’s the city I love. Famous of course for West Edmonton Mall (WEM), once the worlds largest mall (and parking lot) and for it’s two teams, the Edmonton Eskimo’s (Esks) and the Edmonton Oilers (NHL). However, shopping and sports is not all that this city is about. Edmonton sports a bunch of annual events including the Edmonton Latin Fest, Cariwest Festival and Parade, Heritage Festival and of course The Edmonton Fringe. I’m and Edmontonian for sure and I love my city.

Edmonton Arts and Festivals

I’ve been involved in The Works a number of times as well as Art Walk held on Whyte Ave each year, and sponsored by The Paint Spot and I photograph a number of these events and festivals. The Edmonton Latinfest and Cariwest Festival always bring out some great crowds regardless of the weather, which in the past few years has been great and while not a festival, the Edmonton Grand Prix has been held each year with spectacular turn outs. The sounds of high performance car engines can be heard for many days during the summer.

Edmonton Photo Walk

I’ve had the pleasure of leading the Scott Kelby Photo Walk here in Edmonton for a couple of years and we always have such a good time learning new techniques, trying new angles and of course meeting new photographer friends. Prizes are awarded for the best photographs and it’s just always so much fun. So much fun in fact that the Edmonton Photo Walk deserves it’s own page.

This is a place to showcase all my City of Edmonton content… I hope you enjoy.
