Celebration of Light

Posted by on Jun 28, 2017 in Arts, Blog, Gallery, News, Patterns/Textures/Shapes | 0 comments

Vancouver BC presents an annual Celebration of Light event where 3 different countries put on their own unique firework performance. In 2016, the featured countries were Netherlands, Australia, and United States, each on a different mid-summer night.

I made the trip up to BC from Portland for the United States July 3oth performance in 2016, and it was spectacular! In 2017, the featured countries will be Japan, United Kingdom, and Canada on Saturday July 29th, Wednesday August 2nd, and Saturday August 5th. Maybe I’ll make it again!

Arriving early to set up my photography equipment, I found a good spot above the massive crowds on the Sunset Beach Park for a good view of the performance off the English Bay Beach.

The fireworks have been the city’s signature annual event since the inaugural event in 1990.

The celebration has recently brought in over a million spectators over the 3 nights of the event.

Firework photography can be tricky, especially metering for long exposures to capture multiple blasts. It took me a bit of trial and error, but was able to get the settings right and snap away to capture many excellent quality images. Post-production helped remove the firework smoke.

The results from this firework photography adventure were very pleasing, and it was so much fun!

As United States’ Independence Day is approaching, wishing you all a happy and safe 4th of July!

~Celebration of Light~

I’d love to be your photographer and capture stunning memories of you, your family, your life! Contact Rob to book your portrait session for any occasion, or to inquire availability for wedding photography. Ask about specials for 2017 Senior Portraits and 2018 Wedding Photography!

Chasing Ebenezer @ White Eagle June 2017

Posted by on Jun 25, 2017 in Blog, Gallery, Portraits | 0 comments

This isn’t their first rodeo at McMenamins White Eagle Saloon in Portland, Oregon. After a phenomenal performance in March 2017 for their Outcasts & Refugees CD release party, Chasing Ebenezer returns for another flawless performance!

The new album is absolutely fabulous, be sure to get your copy of the album here. You will NOT be disappointed! This music is top notch and professional with a purpose. “In their soul-searching tribal folk rock music, Chasing Ebenezer reflects a yearning for peace in the midst of turmoil. They advocate for the abused and abandoned and seek to move hearts to sacrificial compassion.”

Thanks for blessing us with your beautiful gifts!

Enjoyed a long Memorial Day weekend at a lovely cabin in Chiloquin, near Klamath Falls in Oregon. Lots of yummy food, some relaxing, and this photographer’s heaven, logging museum at Collier Park!

Spent a couple hours exploring the park. These are a few of my favorites!

The stunning couple – Kyler + Heather – Prom Portraits!

Had a fabulous time photographing this great looking and fun couple!

Eastbank Esplanade in Portland, Oregon!

Until next time Kyler + Heather! Thanks for having me as your photographer!

I’ve seen these guys a few times before, but never like this!

Chasing Ebenezer packed the McMenamins White Eagle Saloon on March 13th 2017 for this special concert releasing their brand new Outcasts & Refugees CD. I have yet to hear the recordings, but I do know that the tracks performed live were phenomenal!

White Mounds

A couple years ago, as I was introducing my photography portfolio to online galleries, I spent (later thought to have wasted) a huge amount of time building a profile on redbubble.com/people/barakadefoto. A few weeks ago, that “thought to have wasted” all changed. A fan placed an order for a framed/matted print of one of my landscape images “White Mounds

hyperlink: www.redbubble.com/people/barakadefoto/9539007-white-mounds

The Red Bubble service is great, as they handle all manufacturing and processing of the transaction and provide the artist with a decent commission.

This blog post is shouting out a big thanks to this fan, and all Barakade Foto fans.

THANK YOU!

Sincerely,
Rob @ Barakade Fotografie

My wife and I decided to take a road trip from Portland, Oregon to Colorado Spring, Colorado in July 2015. At first we thought to maybe fly, but as we though more about the beauty we’d be missing in between, we started to plan a road trip instead. And we’re so glad we did!

This blog is the final installment, part 4 of some select photos from our trip.
