Our next online Sackville Photography Club meeting is this Wednesday, February 3rd.
We survived the “year” of January and here we are in February! It’s time to think about pouring yourself a beverage, filling a plate with snacks, pulling up a chair and getting comfortable and we will do our very best to bring you a full, entertaining and informative meeting.
We are more than happy to be hosting New Brunswick’s own, Maggie Hood, as our Guest Speaker with her presentation “Arriving at Creating”. If there is anything the past year has taught Maggie in her photography, it is lessons in the emotional ties we create with our work. Both lessons in the impact our work has on us as individuals, how it is tied into the fibres of our self-identity. After being led to look closer at her business, her personal photography, and also her own priorities, she arrived at a few conclusions: breaks can be good and feeling creative can be a practice. She’ll share some of the ways she tries to jumpstart her own inspiration and arrive at a place where creative portraits feel fun and meaningful.
Besides being obsessed with toques, animal snuggles and a yummy craft beer, Mag is super passionate about creating images that matter. When not out shooting, she can be found snuggled up in an animal pile on the couch working between naps. With almost 10 years of experience in the field, Mag shoots a wide variety of photographic genres. From family portraits to business and commercial photography, she has a knack for creating content for websites and social media that resonates with her clients. Having worked with a wide variety of clientele, from small local to international businesses, she is driven to create media that fits with the individual client’s unique project goals.
In the second half of the meeting Hugh Chisholm has the January Showcase “People” ready to roll and Mike Donahue will navigate us through the interesting and perhaps uncharted waters of the “Edit My Image” challenge! Ian Proctor will provide an update on Field Trips, Kevin Hall will update the Mentoring program and Chris Briand will take us through Club Business.
As a reminder, images for the EXTRA Showcase: “Anything You Want” will be due Saturday, February 13th to firstname.lastname@example.org .
We look forward to you joining us online this Wednesday, February 3rd at 7pm from the comfort of your home. You don’t want to miss this!!!! The Zoom meeting invite will be posted as an EVENT in the Members Facebook group.
