    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?
