    Friend, graphic designer 'extraordinaire' and co-author Robert L. Peters and I are extremely proud and very excited to launch our book 'Natural Reflections' on Thursday, June 21, 2018 at McNally Robinson Booksellers. The launch begins at 7:00 PM in the Atrium of the Winnipeg store in Grant Park Mall. We invite you to check out the Facebook Page called 'Natural Reflections' to read more about the book as well as browse some sample pages.


    Rob and I met back in 1990 when he joined the young enterprise called 'Praxis Photographic Workshops' along with commercial photographer Paul Martens, Naturalist/Photographer Celes Davar and I, Forestry Technician/Photographer. Together we provided photographic instruction to the local community for a couple of years before our full-time jobs and family responsibilities made it simply unsustainable to continue. Celes and I had young families and challenging positions with the Federal Government while Paul serviced commercial clients in Winnipeg and abroad and Rob managed a small team of graphic designers at Circle (Design) designing work for clients around the world.


    Early on, Rob and I recognized that we had similar publishing interests and we began working on the framework that would become 'Natural Reflections'. Through a number of all-night stands after busy work days, we drafted the outline of five chapters and made extensive notes that became the ideas for each chapter. On and off, as time permitted, we reviewed the draft documents, made revisions and edited images. We pledged that some day we would see this project to fruition. Finally, in the summer of 2016, I met publisher Don Gorman of Rocky Mountain Books at an American Writer's Conference in Missoula, Montana and, after some brief communication, he commissioned 'Natural Reflections' for a future publication.

    We are both looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible to the upcoming launch on June 21, also coinciding with the Summer Solstice (First Day of Summer) and the National Indigenous Peoples Day. Mark your calendar!

    This coming Thursday, November 3 (2016) at 7 PM, I will be launching my new book 'MANITOBA - LAND OF THE UNEXPECTED’ in the Atrium of McNally Robinson Booksellers store in Grant Park Shopping Centre, 1120 Grant Ave) in Winnipeg, MB. This book was published by Les Editions des Plaines in Winnipeg and printed in Altona, Manitoba, making this another great 'Made In Manitoba' project, at least in my mind! This book is the result of some 30 years of exploring one of Canada's best kept secrets! I look forward to sharing it with you.

    I am pleased to announce that I will be presenting 'The Art of Making A Book' for a second time on Friday, March 18, 2016 at McNally Robinson Booksellers from 7:00 - 9:00 PM. The presentation had originally been scheduled for last month but had to be changed because of a death in the family. To all those who had already registered for the full-house, thank you kindly for your understanding. The first presentation on October 9, 2015 was also a resounding success. Space is limited so register by email to candicegordon@outlook.com


    Donovan Bergman of Friesens will be joining me to discuss everything you want to know about making a book. The event will include a Q&A and some publishing materials will also be given out. The event is sponsored by Friesens, The Manitoba Photo Friends and FlashFest (Winnipeg's Annual Photography Festival). I am looking forward to seeing you there!

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!

    This coming Friday at 7 PM, I will be launching my latest book 'Beautiful Alberta' (Firefly Books) at McNally Robinson Booksellers (Winnipeg). Alberta is a place I lived in for nearly seven years and the place that I have returned to over and over during the last 30 years to photograph and capture its magnificent beauty. I look forward to seeing some of you Friday evening and perhaps I can autograph a book for you as a gift to your loved one for this coming Xmas.
