Introducing one of our newer Atlantic members, Jason Bowie! Jason has been photographing people for more than 20 years and joined PPOC in March of 2020. Because the pandemic forced his normal travel schedule to grind to a halt he was able to refine his work in his free time and earned his first accreditation in Sports in August. He is a father of two (both currently in university) and lives in Riverview where he operates a part-time studio. Jason has always had a passion for photography and was recently recognized for his work with 2 Judge's Choice Awards, Best in Class for Press and the Joe KR Stone Award for Best Commercial print at the PPOC Atlantic Regional Image Salon competition. He recently earned his second accreditation in Portrait.

Tracy specializes in Pet Photography in the Greater Moncton area, and this is all very awkward for her as she is also the PPOC Atlantic Webmaster and Social Media Chair, so she has to write these posts herself.
