Looking for ADVENTURE, EXCITEMENT, KNOWLEDGE & INSPIRATION ?
I am always looking for an opportunity to learn and be inspired; that's how I grow as an artist. Books, magazine articles and online portfolios provide excellent ways to learn about all aspects of photography but nothing beats attending a live performance by a distinguished artist. Whether you are a novice, intermediate, advanced, semi-professional, professional or accomplished photographer, there is always something you can learn and take away, depending on how receptive you are!
PAUL ZIZKA, this year's presenter at the 5th Annual Manitoba Photo Event, will provide an excellent opportunity for you to learn and be inspired. Paul, an award-winning photographer from Banff, Alberta will be presenting a one-day seminar on Saturday, May 12, 2018 which will run from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM. The event takes place at the:
SAMUEL N. COHEN AUDITORIUM
St. Boniface Hospital - 351 Taché Avenue
Topics to be covered in the seminar include:
Based upon his travels and explorations over 7 continents, Paul will present on:
The Power of the Human Element in Landscape Photography
Shooting Stars: A zooming introduction to Astrophotography
The EVENT is sponsored by The Manitoba Camera Club, Manitoba Foto Friends and the Winnipeg South Photo Club.

The 2018 'Manitoba' calendar features my photographs from 32 years of extensive traveling throughout my adopted province. In 2016, I also published a book called 'Manitoba - Land of the Unexpected' (Vidacom Publications). The calendar was 1 of 8 published by Wyman Publishing featuring my photography exclusively. Thank you kindly in advance for supporting my work! Enjoy!

With camera in hand I am an explorer. Sometimes I travel to the far reaches of this great country we call Canada discovering new locales but often I explore for new possibilities in the comfort and proximity of my own backyard. It’s important for me to create and just as important for me to create without any thoughts as to how an image might be used in the future. This personal work is important for growth as an artist and it brings much contentment. No matter what the tools are (iPhone) or what the technique being used is (ICM Intentional Camera Movement), the resulting image can be as important and fulfilling as any other. If I don’t come away with an image, the experience of being out there was enough. As Freeman Patterson said many years ago, this is simply “Photography For The Joy Of It”.
This coming Saturday, April 29, Manitoba Photo Events is sponsoring their fourth annual weekend extravaganza by hosting fellow photographer from Prince Edward Island DAVE BROSHA. Dave will present a one-day seminar about his work. Then, on Sunday, April 30th, he will conduct a workshop for a smaller group of participants.
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.
A wonderful way to grow as a photographer is 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. I plan on attending! Are you?
