Paul Bicycle Courier

paul matheson
Paul Matheson is a bicycle courier in Calgary.  I'm impressed.  I love cycling and I do it lots but... NOT in the winter.  These guys are tough.  Calgary is often cold and they seem to thrive in it.  Probably just my perception.  When not working he goes for bike rides.  He and his girlfriend have even planned a bike trip from Calgary to Neslon BC this year for the Shambhala Music Festival.

Paul works for On Track Courier Service in Calgary

Mellifluous Maddie

Maddie, wise beyond her years has a calming effect on those near her.  One of those beings that you love to have around.  Home for Maddie is Toronto where she plans to do some acting.  We did a photo shoot yesterday in Calgary near the reservoir as she needed some pictures for the agency.  Maddie is here for a few more days.  If you want to hire her leave a comment with your contact information and I will forward it.

Beautiful Lively Leah

leah whitmore
Leah is in Calgary working for ten days.  She's has a booth selling jewelry in one of those big 'membership' stores in Southeast Calgary.  Long days but she has the energy.  Leah has worked successfully in advertising and marketing - a very hard worker, she works and plays hard.  Leah must be a good person as she has two of the most wonderful kids you would ever want to meet!  There was so much going with Leah in a two and half minute photo shoot that I had to include two of her...

Sarah the adventurer

sarah jones
Sarah Manwaring-Jones is an adventurer.  For several years her job was to take people on canoe trips in different remote places in the world.  She would take school kids on a several week trip through the rivers of Labrador or go with a few good friends on a sea kayak trip from Cairns, Australia a 1000 miles to that very northern tip which put them a few miles from Papau New Guinea. 

Sarah now lives a slightly less quiet life teaching Yoga in British Columbia - minutes from the 2010 Olympic Village. You can find Sarah online at: Sarah and Lydia's Blog

I met Sarah at the Calgary Airport on her way back home to the coast after teaching a class in Canmore, Alberta.  We took a few quick pictures while she was waiting for her plane.

This is Brian

I caught Brian Lubbers doing what he loves to do: talk on the radio.  In this picture Brian is doing his thing on XL103FM.  The radio station had a booth and was announcing from the Calgary RV Show this past weekend at the Stampede grounds. Give him a listen.  You can also visit the station's website at XL103FM Calgary
