2015 TMAC Awards - Best People Photo - Nuu-chah-nulth Dancer 1Super happy that this photo of Nuu-chah-nulth dancer, Timmy Masso, from the Pacific Rim chapter of Emily Carr’s BC (Book One): Vancouver Island, was awarded Gold for Best People Photo of 2015 by TMAC, the Travel Media Association of Canada. Timmy, who is wearing a kingfisher mask carved by his brother (artist-to-watch Hjalmer Westob), performed a segment of a dance that tells the background story of his family. Thanks to Emily Carr leading me on the most fascinating journey’s around British Columbia, I met the brothers at the Kwisitis Visitor Centre at Pacific Rim National Park Reserve. It is a tremendous honour to be recognized with my ninth TMAC award.
