You’ll be remembered as being one of my most challenging years, both personally and professionally. This year, the Manitoba Government closed down New’s Media including the photography dept. For almost 18 years I’ve been free-lancing under this dept. Incredible opportunity’s to photograph every walk of life, including royalty! It’s been a wonderful journey, beyond my wildest photographic dreams. I can’t wrap my head around these photoshoot’s being done with iPads, smart phones, and point and shoots, by whomever is on hand at the time. I’ve always believed it’s not the equipment it’s the person using it that create’s the image. It’s hard to believe that the PC government lacks the valve of photography from a trained professional. Is it just the sign of times? Is professional photography dead? I HOPE NOT! I still believe in good quality photography, Good lighting, posting, capuring emotion will NEVER go out of style, no matter what the medium! Smart phones have made photography fun, and although I don’t like selfie’s, I treasure the images of family and friends.
My year in review, is a mix of wedding, business portraits, family portraits and events. In studio and on location. It’s hard to pick 1 from every month, capturing love, life, and laughter!
As we say goodbye to 2017. I plan on ringing in the new year with the hope 2018 will be a little kinder. I’d like to thank all of you who still believe in professional photography,
All the best in Love and Laughter, Happy New Year 2018!
