The Robert McLaughlin Gallery is a beautiful gallery and huge supporter of local artists. Every year, they hold a Juried Photography competition. Hundreds of photographers submit hundreds of ABSOLUTELY AMAZING photographs. I have no idea how they manage to select the winners. I was beyond honoured to receive the TOP CONCEPTUAL/NON REPRESENTATIONAL AWARD for the second consecutive year. The gala night was such fun. I am always intrigued when I watch live auctions, and so happy to hear that this piece has found a new home. It is one of my all time favourite images that I have created thus far. Congratulations to all the award winners. Stephanie Foden, Tom Ridout, Raymond Williams, Dave MacVicar, and Anthony Bailey
I am humbled and honoured to have been selected to participate in the 2017 Snap competition. One of my favourite images from this year was selected out of more than 450 submissions to featured in the SNAP Silent auction in March 2017. The proceeds from the auction will support ACT’s (AIDS Committee of Toronto) programs and services. I will be sure to send out details as it will be a great night.
I cherish each and every session that I am fortunate enough to be a part of but there are a few that have a very special place in my heart. Some of these special people are no longer with us, while others have moved to new provinces, yet each one will be forever cherished and when I look at their images, I will always feel gratitude. They have forever changed my life xo
