Without the support of my community, I simply wouldn't be able to do what I love most. Giving back to the community that has shown me acceptance, appreciation, and connection is incredibly important to me. Each year, I join a team of photographers, graphic artists, and publishers to create 'The Valley Faces of Business". It is a Rotary Club Project that has raised over $800,000 for community projects and supports by helping local businesses advertise what they do best.
Check out the gallery to see some of the incredible folks right here in the Valley. Their commitment to helping our community. I'm looking forward to gearing up for my 4th year on the project. Want to take part in the project too by advertising your business?

The studio is home to the Annapolis Valley Camera Club. We are a diverse group of photography enthusiasts, both amatuer and professional. Together we practice landscape, portrait, impressionistic, experimental, drone, and more. In the winter months our meetings are held indoors and based around theory and portrait. Come the warmer weather and longer days you can find us organizing field trips throughout the Valley. Some past trips and events have included: photography contests, photography exhibits at local museums, the eagle festival in Sheffield Mills, visiting other photography clubs, and inviting guest presenters.
Check out the gallery of some of our friends and previous outings. Also, you can get the latest information on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/165870790145326
2023 is the launch of the Annapolis Valley Modeling Network. This series of events hosts models, photographers, HMA's, and other creatives, both amatuer and professional coming together to collaborate and create. By hosting these events, we grow professionally, build new friendships, and encourage community development, promote tourism establishments, and heritage preservation through facility rentals.
This program has been inspired by the Photowalk Atlantic organization and with their blessing is being recreated here.
