PPOC 50th ANNIVERSARY NATIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY AWARDS GALA

PPOC LOGO
The Professional Photographers of Canada had big plans to celebrate their 50th Anniversary (1970-2020) along with their Awards Gala in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan April 24 - 27th. Unfortunately, those plans abruptly changed with the growing restrictions due to COVID-19. Instead of canceling the entire convention, it was decided to go ahead with the first (and hopefully last) Virtual Awards Gala that celebrates the successes and achievements of the dedicated service of their members as well as their photography skills. Many thanks to all those involved in producing this event.

This is a Photographer’s Tale, or maybe that should be “Tail”, of a Rescued Piglet, a Checkers Game, a Pro Photographer, and a Country Western Singer. See how this all turned into a nomination by the Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) for the Cover Art of an Album. Story as related by Brad Kelly.

Renowned Photographer Retires

Brian Boyle
After an amazing 45 (!) years, Brian Boyle - the ROM’s senior photographer - will be retiring at the end of August.  His last day will be Friday, August 30th.

Brian started at the ROM (Royal Ontario Museum) in 1974, and during his tenure, he has helped lead the transition from the analog 20th century to the digital 21st century.  When he started at the ROM, photographers shot everything on black and white film, using 4 x 5” cameras.  Since 2002, Brian has worked entirely with digital cameras and has led the ROM in establishing itself as a premier institution in the digital world.
