Photography is, at times, a solitary career. Most people probably don't realize that, but I spend a great deal of time by myself. Sitting in front of my computer--editing, answering emails, dealing with my never ending file management needs, and very occassionally planning my next photographic endeavour.
I consider myself lucky to have begun my career quite a few years ago now...back when the size of the industry was a bit more manageable and the possibilities of meeting amazing photographers online and in person seemed easier. Thanks to that, I have managed to grow a rather large group of artist friends whom I lovingly refer to as 'my tribe'. Some within my tribe I talk to quite regularly. Others are there when I need them...and, I am there for them. It has been the single greatest thing I have done for myself as an artist, but also as a business person.
Luckily for me, two of my tribemates were recently in the Calgary area. I was able to spend a day with them out in Banff and Kananaskis. It was a very casual and laid back day filled with wonderful conversations and just a wee bit of picture taking. Here are a handful of my favourites.
Always lovely to see the Solars!! Can't wait until our next adventure together!!
