A Field Trip With PhotoEd Magazine

May 10, 2018

On Saturday May 5th I had the privilege of joining a Field Trip put on by PhotoEd Magazine. PhotoEd is a great Canadian magazine that engages photographers and photo educators with content that feeds their passions. I recently became a subscriber after a few years of buying individual copies to read.

PhotoEd's Field Trip was geared to photography and media educators from any institution. I hope to share my experience in street/art photography through photo walks one day and wanted to take advantage of the great content that PhotoEd had on offer to help me reach that goal. 

The day included a session on how to lead a photo walk by the very talented (and personal friend of mine!) Diana Nazareth of Project Kids and Cameras. Fuji brought cameras to loan out for the walk, which was a nice treat. Later Flixel shared their fascinating Cinemagraph technology. In the afternoon we visited three exhibits put on as part of the 2018 Contact Photo Festival (be sure to check out the many shows on - now until the end of May!). That was followed by a great discussion about selecting and applying for post-secondary education with representatives from five colleges that offer photography programs.

Toronto photographer Christine Love Hewitt did an excellent job capturing the day, and I am sure PhotoEd Magazine will be sharing those on their website and on social media.

Here are a few of my images taken during the photo walk.

Thank you PhotoEd Magazine, and all of the presenters, for a fantastic day!
