Music for the Gut….

Recently I photographed the “1st ANNUAL MUSIC FOR THE GUT” concert in Winnipeg for Crohn’s and Colitis Canada.  Besides being afflicted with this disease, I also volunteer my time to the cause by creating images that help raise awareness and funding that goes towards research and treatment.

MUSIC FOR THE GUT is a Musical Variety Show that started under the creative coordination of the Hughton Family in Saskatoon. This event has been raising funds for Crohn’s and Colitis Canada since 2011.  The Winnipeg Chapter of Crohn’s and Colitis Canada held the 1ST ANNUAL MUSIC FOR THE GUT WINNIPEG on Thursday, May 4 at The Park Theatre.

Jay Semko of The Northern Pikes helped to raise awareness and funds for Crohn’s and Colitis Canada.  The concert included performances from local artists such as The Piano Kings, Kenzie Jane,  Two Hip and more!

All proceeds went to Crohn’s and colitis research.  The goal is to bring medical breakthroughs and better treatments for those effected, as well as improving the lives of children and adults dealing with these chronic diseases.

WOOF, WOOF! I’m now a “Nationally Accredited Canine Portrait Specialist”…

I just received my 12th National Accreditation from the Professional Photographers of Canada (PPOC).  This time in “Canine Portraiture”.  This makes my Accreditation submissions 120/120…I have never had an image rejected for an Accreditation submission – ever.  While some people never achieve the Accreditation they are going for, or it takes them sometimes 5 or 6 attempts to get a successful group of 10 image all accepted, mine have always been accepted on the first submission.  That is something that I am proud of.

To celebrate, Impact Photographic Design is offering a Doggie Portrait Special (well, let’s make it kitties too as I’m also Accredited in Feline Portraits!).  Have your fury friend photographed (with or without their human family) and received a 12″ Aluminum Portrait on a metal easel.  That’s the session AND a finished portrait for only $99.00 + taxes.  That’s a $400+taxes value….. for 75% off! 

Call the studio today to book your session today!

I took Trump’s advice, but I don’t think this is “exactly” what he meant….

I just achieved my 11th Accreditation from the Professional Photographers of Canada (PPOC), this time in “FELINE PORTRAITURE.
For those that are counting that means I’m “110 for 110”.  I have never had an Accreditation image of mine rejected – ever.  I’ve known people who have taken 5, 6 etc tried to get one set of 10 images accepted by the judges for just one category.  That is something I am proud of
