Welcome to my very first blog! I’ve been taking photographs since I can remember. Developed my first b/w print when I was 13 years old. I remember the little hairs on the back of my neck stood up and I was hooked! I started my business Photography by Michele in 1990, while working as a photographer with Bristol Aerospace and have been loving my career ever since.
I’m reinventing my business with a new web site, logo and blog! It’s a lot to do, but I’m up for the challenge and really need to jump on this social media band wagon. The new logo designed is in the works by the fabulous June bug designs. I can’t wait to see what she comes up with.
The sad thing about starting a new blog is I’ve already had an amazing career and can’t imagine what the future will bring. I really feel like I’ve “peaked” as I’ve been at this a while. Over the years I’ve shot for many magazines, some are no longer being published which is kind of sad. Winnipeg Homes and Life Styles and Manitoba Business Magazine are two which have long closed it’s door on the publishing world. I was lucky enough to have the cover shot on both as their last issues. Winnipeg Women, Ciao, Where Winnipeg, and Women Business Owners of Manitoba are still printing and magazines that I’ve worked for in the past. I’ve even had a cover on Military Technology! Over the years there have been many business, weddings, families, children, and newborn portraits. Shooting for the provincial government I’ve covered my share of news events, ceremonies, and dignitaries coming to our great city of Winnipeg. The Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Queen of England twice!
Starting a blog after all these accomplishments is a little scary as I hope I have something to peak your interest, who know’s maybe the best is yet to come 🙂
