NYC, here we come!

So excited to get a phone call from Monica Campbell Hoppe the other day. The director of the Canadian Tourism Commission congratulated both of us for each winning a Northern Lights Award for excellence in travel photojournalism. Monica also told us they would be flying us out to NYC for the award ceremonies - yay!

The winning article was about our journey up the Yellowhead Highway and the many First Nations sites and people we encountered along the way. It was such an honour to have master carver Chief Alver Tait invite us into his studio to watch him breath life into his cedar works of art.





The story was published in British Columbia Magazine. We have been so fortunate to work with the amazing people there like editor Anita Willis and art director Ken Seabrook for the past nine years - thanks for always making us look so good, guys!
