January 23, 2014

Today I was interviewed by several students from the Red River College photography program. I've done this a couple of times now and it's really interesting to chat with people just getting into photography in order to help them avoid any of the pitfalls I fell into as well as with tips and tricks to promote not only a good career but a healthy life while doing it.

I consider it a great honour to impart knowledge that has helped me over the years as that's the only way we can develop and improve our hobbies and careers.

I don't do much advertising but each year I get a nice half page spread in the Festival du Voyageur for which I am their official photographer so I think it's important to advertise there. The following is my ad for this year, very similar to years past with a new photo:

A friend of mine(Bobby) found one of my photos on an article posted by Karen L. who was one of the travel journalists who I went on the epic journey to Churchill last year with. She used a couple of my photos in the article and credits me at the end.

You can see the article with my photos and learn about the journey here.

My Northern Lights and aurora photos are all on my "what" page. I think i may move them to the "Where" page which is for landscapes.

Event photography: Winnipeg Convention Centre - children's holiday party

Every once in a while I get to shoot something that really touches me and this was definitely one of those cases where the WCC put together a party for their staff's kids! Very cool event from a company that obviously cares about it's ppl. I was so touched by this that I offered all the prints requested as a gift. Just one little thing I could do at this time of the season.

Photographie publicitaire: Division scolaire franco-manitobaine - programme à Winnipeg Technical College

I can't lie. It's really fun being a photographer. It's not just all the rubbing elbows with rock stars, traveling around the city, province and all over this great nation, and it's not even meeting new people every day,but one really interesting part of being a photographers is getting to shoot for people or companies which have really meant something in your life. In this case, shooting for both a French educational association but even more so shooting for one of my alma maters, Winnipeg Technical College which I attended in my last year of high school...just last year... ;)

It's great to be able to go back and visit previous schools, areas and friends as well as to shoot in places I've never been before.

Nature photography & videography: Assiniboine Park Zoo - Hudson & Aurora the polar bears' first meeting

Today I hired two other photographers to assist me in shooting photos and video of a really interesting event, the meeting of two bears. It went really well...that is to say, the bears seem to have gotten along well and no blood was shed, and the video and photos worked well too!

You can see the video on the APC's YouTube channel: Polar Opposites: The First Meeting Between Hudson & Storm
This video ended up getting the 2nd most views of all the APC's videos by almost double the next video's views! Maybe I should do more video?

It's funny how life goes around in circles. My grandma and grandpa worked and met at Scotiabank. My best friend's dad was a manager at Scotiabank. So therefore I use them as my bank. What's even better is that my actual branch used me when they needed photography! It's great when as a client you turn a client into a client...wait, that made no sense...anyway, you know what I mean.

I love photography.
When I'm not shooting for a client I'm out shooting something for myself. Just having fun, trying new techniques. If I'm not shooting for myself I'm researching new gear or techniques to improve my photography overall. Along those same lines I really like to talk to people about photography, even when it's about the negative side.

Today I spent over an hour on the phone with a member of my photo club helping him with a problem with his camera and also with a wedding client of his who is really unhappy. I've been lucky to have very few "bridzillas" when I was shooting weddings and always do my best to make clients happy, no matter what so I had a great conversation and touched on a lot of the psychology of photography. Who knows, maybe I'll turn it into a workshop sometime!

Today, after an absolutely excellent 4 month period I'm finally taking down my long term gallery at the USB.
I had a small "official closing" since I didn't have an official opening and was very happy to be able to show it to family and close friends who hadn't yet seen it.

HUGE thanks to Mel, Jason and all the others who helped me get this organ is ed, to all who came and sent me nice comments over the inter-webz and to everyone who bought a print!
It was a great experience which I hate to say I didn't take full advantage of due to the birth of Jeremy, my first born as well as a multitude of other busying factors in the summer months.

Thanks again everyone!

Date: Monday, August 26th, 2013
Time: 7-9pm
Location: St Boniface University, 200 Avenue de la Cathedrale (use the Aulneau entrance by the Louis Riel statue)
