    Each year, the Manitoba Camera Club, Manitoba Foto Friends and Winnipeg South Photo Club come together to sponsor photography speakers that will educate and inspire the local photography community in Manitoba. 'Photographically Speaking' by David duChemin will be their third annual event. I have attended the two previous events and I would highly recommend this presentation to anyone interested in learning more about the craft and vision of photography.

    The event takes place on Saturday, May 7, 2016 at the SAMUEL N. COHEN AUDITORIUM of the St. Boniface Hospital at 351 Taché Avenue in Winnipeg, Manitoba from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM. Doors open at 8:00 AM for additional registrations.

    'Photographically Speaking' by David duChemin is just one of the many Manitoba Photo Events organized by this group. Check their website often for additional events.


    Speaking of other events, on Sunday, May 8, 2016 Manitoba Photo Events will be holding a series of small workshops. For additional information about these workshops, visit the Manitoba Photo Events website.

    It was a genuine pleasure to see the wonderful turnout last night for my presentation on architecture called 'The Built Environment' for the Manitoba Camera Club! The presence of colleagues and clients that I have worked with in the past was a good testament I think to the excellent work that we all did as contributors, both of the design work itself and of capturing that design in photographs. It was fun to take a trip back into 'memory lane' and revisit architectural projects from the last 20 years.

    I was honored last night to have amongst us, a number of architects who have designed and worked on some of the wonderful building projects in Winnipeg. They included Etienne Gaboury, Jason Kasper (Ideate Design Consulting), Larry Hamilton (Architecture 49), Michael Farion (Number Ten Architects) and Mike Karakas (Architecture 49).

    Thank you to all who attended - friends, colleagues, members from the various camera clubs and special guests!

    I begin the year 2015 with a presentation to the Manitoba Camera Club about 'The Built Environment'. Most of you are familiar with my nature portfolio but few have probably seen my architectural imagery that I have made of the built environment. Through my 19 year career as a full-time professional photographer, I have created a considerable and, I believe, a significant body of work around architecture. From my first architectural assignment documenting The Canadian Science Centre for Human and Animal Health in 1996 to photographing the Canadian Museum for Human Rights for a recent Canada Post stamp in 2014, I have been commissioned by some of the most important architectural firms in Winnipeg.

    So, for something completely different, join me this coming Tuesday evening, January 6, 2015 at 7 PM at the Lions Club of Winnipeg building, 610 Portage Avenue (in the Winnipeg Foundation Auditorium). If you are not a camera club member but would like to attend, simply let me know and I will admit you as one of my SPECIAL guests! Hope to see you there!
