    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
    WINNIPEG, MANITOBA

    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
    Field Workflow
    Adventure 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.


    You can read more about PAUL ZIZKA online.


    You can REGISTER online at MANITOBA PHOTO EVENTS.

    You may also register in person before the event from 8:00 to 9:00 AM.

    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?
