I haven’t been updating lately because I have been
driving across Canada moving from Belleville Ontario to Edmonton Alberta
to start my 19-week summer job at the Edmonton Sun.

This weekend I was in Winnipeg for the Western News
Photographers Association
www.wcnpa.ca
annual Photojournalism conference.

I was VERY honoured to be awarded WCNPA Picture of the
Year 1’st place Feature picture and Photographers Choice Award for my “Bee on
Target” picture as well WCNPA Picture of the Year 2’nd place in the
general news category for “Wheelchair Race”.

These images were selected from over 800 entries from
professional news photographers all across western Canada so I am very
humbled to have won these awards.

I’ll post more soon when I get settled down in
Edmonton… gotta shoot an Oilers game on Wednesday!
