Got my first cover magazine today. Working for Entreprendre was challenging but fun. For their main story, they use 5 or 6 pictures, including the cover. That means you have to find and execute, in a short period of time, 5 or 6 fairly different pictures. As Frank O’Connor (Loyalist teacher) used to say: Creativity on demand!
Here is some pictures that I submitted:
Minister of Immigration and Cultural Communities Yolande James speaks with Gazette reporter Kevin Dougherty during a sit-down interview at her Quebec city office Tuesday May 22, 2007. James is the youngest minister in Jean Charest’s cabinet, and the province’s first black cabinet minister. She also carries the burden of being the only anglo in the pared-down cabinet.

Cindy and I went to see my parent at their cottage. As the evening went by, the golden light started to hit my father through the window. Of course, I could not resist shooting a couple of frames. A little bit of postproduction to convert it to black and white gave my what will be a beautiful memory of him someday.
