So this is me. Right now.
What can I tell you about Pearl the photographer?
Well, I can tell you that I truly love what I do. Taking photos for people that tell a story or connect to them, is the most important thing I do. I’m a memory MAKER.
Aside from being a photographer, my husband Frank and I own a second business together (Aspire Professional Studios) – which is a place for all photographers to learn and grow in their own craft. And helping others, this is my passion.
I am just finishing up my term as the chair of our provincial branch of the Professional Photographers of Canada. This is just another way that I can give back and help promote the strength and community that we, as photographers need to help teach and inspire each other. I am accredited by this National organization (www.ppoc.ca) and I currently hold 6 specialties.
And, Pearl, the person – she’s not much different. It’s most important to me to make meaningful connections with people in my life. You’ll rarely see me without my dogs, a cup of coffee and a smile. I’m driven. I’m full of ideas. You never know what I’m going to do next (neither do I!) I live and thrive in downtown Winnipeg. I love to travel, and make memories! And I just love love love people. Of every variety.
I truly believe that the magic that is created by a photograph can extend far past the people in them. If you can capture a person’s soul, you can share them with everyone. Life is precious. Make it memorable.
