    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:

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

    I am looking forward to returning to Banff this coming January to present at the 2017 Banff Photography Summit as the Keynote Speaker. Amongst other speakers joining me at the Summit will be Outdoor Photography Canada Magazine's editor Roy Ramsay for which I have been writing and illustrating a feature called 'Discovering Canada' for the last 10 years. Incidentally, there is a great SPECIAL currently offered to new Outdoor Photography Canada Magazine subscribers.

    The conference takes place in the beautiful town site of Banff in Banff National Park in Alberta from January 13-15, 2017. Conference organizer Brian Merry has a variety of events planned and you may browse the itinerary and register at the Banff Photography Summit website. Personally, I plan on taking advantage of this conference by taking a little holiday to explore and photograph the beauty of the Majestic Canadian Rockies. I hope to see a few of you at the conference!
