2015 TMAC Photo Award for Emily Carr’s BC

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.

TMAC Photography Award

Bruce has just been browsing on the TMAC (Travel Media Association of Canada) website and discovered that I’ve won the 2012 photography award for best action photo. I wasn’t able to attend the annual conference earlier this month in Saskatoon, so missed the awards ceremony. He called me as soon as he saw my photo on the website. Certainly an unusual way to discover that you’ve won an award. Anyway, I’m thrilled. The photo shows typical summertime action in the Okanagan Valley as a wakeboarder takes air on Osoyoos Lake. The photo was published in Okanagan Life‘s 2012 Annual Valley Guide. This is my 8th national award.
