THE GREAT ICE SHOW, Winnipeg's Winter Wonderland, opened January 25, 2016.The ice sculptures were created by fifty specially trained Chinese ice artisans. Sculptures include life-size dinosaurs, an ice replica of Manitoba’s legislative building, huge sliding toboggan runs, an igloo and dozens of smaller sculptures of various wildlife, etc. The pilot project, The Great Ice Show, is the brainchild of Paul Kostas, the owner of Humphry Inn & Suites, Andy Zhao, general manager at the Hampton Inn by Hilton Winnipeg Airport, and Vivian Jiao of Humphry Inn & Suites. The Great Ice Show will run as long as the ice can be maintained intact. Have a look at some of my images.

"We all have a book inside us waiting to be written".
I am presenting 'The Art of Making A Book' for a second time on Thursday, February 11, 2016 at McNally Robinson Booksellers from 7:00 - 9:00 PM. The first presentation on October 9, 2015 was a resounding success and a full house so we decided that we would offer the presentation again in 2016 using names from a waiting list to begin. Space is limited and we now have only 8 seats left as of this morning!
Donovan Bergman of Friesens will be joining me to discuss everything you want to know about making a book. It will also include a Q&A. The event is sponsored by Friesens, The Manitoba Photo Friends and FlashFest (Winnipeg's Annual Photography Festival).
To register, please email email@example.com and let us know!

I was fascinated by architecture from very early on. For the last 20 years, architecture has been an important part of my commercial photography business as well as my personal work. Buildings are designed by artists and I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to photograph their works. I am attracted to the same design elements as when I am photographing nature - line, shape, form, pattern, texture and colour. From skylines to details, interiors or exteriors, I love capturing how light transforms "The Built Environment”.
Join me as my special guest this coming Wednesday, November 18, 2015 as I share my thoughts and images about 'Architectural Photography' for the Winnipeg South Photo Club. I presented a similar presentation last year for the Manitoba Camera Club but I have just revamped much of the presentation with new images! Presentation starts at 7:30 PM at Acadia Junior High School.

This Saturday November 7, I will be at Chapters in St. Vital (Winnipeg) to sign my Ontario book which was released earlier in the spring. The book was published by Turnstone Press and was printed at Friesens in Altona, Manitoba. The book was a recent winner of a 2015 Certificate of Merit in the Category Art Books at this year’s annual Premier Print Awards sponsored by the Printing Industries of America. With Xmas fast approaching, the book would make a fine gift for a loved one and I would be honored to autograph a copy for you. Hope to see some of you between noon and 3 PM.
