All levels of photographers wanting to engage in conversations and practicing the art of photography are welcome. Audience: Adults and Teens Required Supplies: Any camera and lens kit you are comfortable with, plus: - Lens cleaning cloth - Charged batteries - Outdoor clothing and footwear for the season. - Bagged lunch - Water bottle Registration cost:  $95.00 plus GST & Eventbrite Fees*  * or register by phone: 403-931-3633, Tues-Sat, 10 am – 4 pm to avoid Eventbrite fees  Registration closes on February 28th, 2020 at 5PM . Artist/Instructor/Guide: I acquired my first camera as a university student and began a journey exploring photography. As an educator (Primary and High School) the camera became a way for my students to tell stories and share learning. As a school division Director and Learning Specialist I encouraged students and teachers to evaluate and share learning with storytelling, photographs, photo essays and digital stories. Now I teach photography, join a friend in co-creating and teaching the Japanese art form Haiga (Haiku and an Image) and make intimate images to inspire people to explore and “see” the world around them. Photographer/Storyteller David DuChemin speaks of “Chase the Magic” not the image. That is what I do every day when I pick up my camera.
