A year on the family farm

By | Blog, Farm Project, Photography | No Comments

My sister Elaine and I had the honour of sharing our farm photo project tonight at a harvest gala co-hosted by the Manitoba Agricultural Hall of Fame and the Red River Exhibition Association. It was a really great opportunity for us to share a selection of photos and stories about our family farm. We would like to thank the organizers for inviting us to take part, and the farming community for being so welcoming and supportive.

A winter visit home

My sister and I went home to visit our family this weekend. I say the same thing every time, but it was so lovely to be out in the country and to have time to visit and relax. Elaine and I were feeling very thankful for each other… both so happy that we have a mutual love for photography and for wandering off the beaten path. The highlights of the weekend were the northern lights and star photography, trudging through the snow in the Cypress River valley and eating soup, sandwiches and pie in the community hall.

50 days (a new project)

By | Blog, Photography | No Comments

In an effort to use my SLR camera on a regular basis, and get used to my new lens, I’ve started a new photography project called 50 days. My goal is to improve my photography skills, and get into a creative head space again. I’ve noticed over the last couple of years that while my technical skills are improving, my conceptual photos are getting few and far between. So my hope is that I’ll see some improvement over the next while.
