    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

    WINNIPEG, MANITOBA


    Michelle’s program will run from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM. Registration opens at 8:00 AM
