I was surprised when a former client contacted me to do a portrait of her teenage son with his fencing gear. Fencing ? People still do this? After a little research I realize there are clubs and even tournaments! Manitoba Fencing Association has more information if you’re interested in the sport. It’s a little intimidating photographing a teenager with a sword but this mild mannered young man put me at ease. I basically had 4 day’s to shoot, retouch, print, and frame! The portraits were for a gift for his grandma, and she just loved them.
