If you are looking for a beautiful 2020 Wall Calendar, I invite you to browse the selection above and consider purchasing one (or more!) of my calendars from your favorite local book store. These calendars are produced by Wyman who have produced fine calendars for decades now. I have also been working with them for decades! With the exception of two calendars (Canada - color and Inspirations), all the other calendars include my images exclusively. Some of these calendars are also offered in various formats such as mini calendars, etc. If for any reason you cannot find these calendars when shopping for gifts for family or friends, simply let me know and I will follow up and find a dealer for you.
As always, thank you kindly for your support over the years! It is always appreciated!

Join celebrated nature photographer Mike Grandmaison on his journey to Churchill as he ventures into the homeland of the polar bear. Combining photographs with enlightening facts on these animals and their environment, The Polar Bear: Lord of the Great North is intended to captivate anyone eager to take a closer look at these fascinating creatures.
Mike Grandmaison is undisputedly one of Canada’s true masters of fine nature photography. An alumnus of Sudbury, Ontario’s Laurentian University, Mike studied biology, graduating in 1976. For the two subsequent decades, he worked in water quality, as well as forest entomology and pathology, before turning his attention to professional photography. Camera steadfastly in hand, he has explored the breadth of Canada, his beloved country, and Manitoba, the province he has called home for the last thirty-three years. Mike owns and manages a full-service stock photography agency, and produces assignment photography specializing in architecture and nature for clients worldwide.
I am looking forward to seeing renown photographer Michelle Valberg's work live on the 'big screen' this coming Saturday, May 4. Nothing beats a 'live' performance for those who have the opportunity to attend. From landscapes to wildlife to portraits, Michelle - also a Nikon Ambassador - is sure to inspire. A photo event such as this is a wonderful way to grow as a photographer, to learn and to be inspired by the work of fellow artists. No matter who you are, one should always be receptive to seeing the work of other artists. I have attended dozens of photo seminars over the years and they have proven invaluable to my growth as an artist.
This is the 6th Annual Event sponsored by the Manitoba Photo Events. In the past, the group has hosted other well-known Canadian artists such as Andre Gallant, Darwin Wiggett and Samantha Chrysanthou, David duChemin, Dave Brosha and Paul Zizka.
The Saturday event runs from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM with registration from 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM. The event takes place at the SAMUEL N. COHEN AUDITORIUM of the St. Boniface Hospital at 351 Taché Avenue in Winnipeg, Manitoba. You can purchase your ticket online or in person from 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM on Saturday at the event.
Hope to see many of you there!

Michelle Valberg, this year's presenter at the 6th Annual Manitoba Photo Event, will provide an excellent opportunity for you to learn and be inspired. A Canadian Nikon Ambassador, she is well known for her outstanding photography of human portraiture as well as for her wildlife and landscape work. She owns her own studio and business in Ottawa and she travels the world leading adventure tours. Some years ago, I attended one of her seminars in Ottawa called ‘Dare to Dream’ - a celebration of Canadian women, the faces & stories of people with hiv/aids. It was a touching and inspiring program.
In Winnipeg on Saturday, May 4, 2019, Michelle will be presenting a one-day seminar in which she will discuss some of her adventures, focusing on wildlife as well as landscape. She will also talk about her philanthropy, or giving back through photography.
The event takes place at the:
SAMUEL N. COHEN AUDITORIUM
St. Boniface Hospital - 351 Taché Avenue
Michelle’s program will run from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM. Registration opens at 8:00 AM
