It's always a great evening when I have the chance to shoot with Sage Theatre...last night I got to sit through one of their last dress rehearsals for the upcoming King Kirby production, and it was awesome! If you get the chance, check it out down at Pumphouse Theatre from April 15-23

Need some shots of your own?

I'm looking forward to being a part of Bodyssey & Beyond 2016 in Banff, AB as their official photographer! From studio shots of finished designs to candids at the jams and classes you'll see me throughout the event.

Just wondering how many of my contacts here on Google+ are attending as models and/or delegates? If you didn't know about it, there's still some spaces available if you want to attend.

Install the mobile app below for the event schedule and information (open on your device and select "add to home screen" on your iPhones & Andriods). There's also a link to the registration page if you want to sign up for some classes and come out to Banff and join in on the fun!

Well, the #CalgaryStampede is over for another year. We didn't get up to too much during the event...worked a few 50/50 shifts at the grandstand...and mostly stayed away due to weather. We did get a chance to do a fun #bodyart collaboration leading up to he event...these are painted posters from years past by artists Amber Gillard, Lianne Moseley and +Rayna McDonald on our models Brandi, Alex and Bree. Shot in the +McDonald Photography and Body Art by Rayna studio in #NECalgary . #stampede2016 #yyc #calgary

Hi all, I'm Jeff and here's a little bit about me...

What circles will I fit into? 

Photography - portraiture, studio, events, landscapes, city & urban, HDR, skydive, martial arts, photo walks

Canada - Alberta & Nova Scotia

Sports - Skydive, Taekwondo

What do I do for a living?

I pay most of the bills by working as a Systems Analyst & Middleware Administrator. My day varies from selecting, installing, configuring, deploying and troubleshooting various computer applications and file transfer processes for use by business teams in a corporate setting…oh yeah it also involves drinking a lot of coffee :-)

What do I do for fun?  

A lot of my free time is spent with my wife and teenage daughter.  They’re awesome and they keep me on track in my crazy life. Speaking of my daughter...she's fundraising for her Summer Band Tour.  Click here to help with a donation to her fund

I fill up a big chunk of my off hours by taking pictures.  I enjoy shooting pretty much anything and like to challenge myself with styles and techniques that I haven’t tried before.  My favorite things to shoot are people & portraits. 

I actively participate in the Selfy Sunday Project here on G+ curated by Jeff Smith, and I also enjoy taking part in the Photography Scavenger Hunts organized by Chrysta Rae.  If you do nothing else on Google+ introduce yourself to these two people and try these'll grow as a photographer and meet some excellent people in the process. 

I do offer photography services in Calgary, AB, so if you're interested in a unique portrait let me know.  Some of my work can be seen at and of course here on Google+.

Anyway, I’ve rambled on enough.  If you want to know more, feel free to ask.  Otherwise, expect to see content from me mostly related to Photography with the odd piece of randomness that interests me.  I look forward to meeting you…

I have had the honor of knowing Master Lau and Master Kim since 1999 and highly recommend them and their programs at the Calgary Taekwondo Academy. Having trained with them first hand and witnessed their dedication to the martial arts, I can say with confidence that new students will have a positive experience from which to develop a solid base of knowledge, and returning students will be challenged to excel and refine their skills. It is great to see the continued success of the Calgary Taekwondo Academy, and I wish them all the best in the future! I look forward to training with you again soon. ~ Master Jeff McDonald
