Capturing the elements of Arctic beauty. The idea behind — and the (ultimately successful) coordination — of the workshop Titled: I’m talkin’. Photo by Leo Eecherk


fell to one man, Arctic Bay Economic Development Officer Clare Kines. “I wanted this to be for photographers from Nunavut to develop skills and the mindset to start or improve a photography business. Too often, the stories being told in magazines through photos and photojournalism are being told from people outside Nunavut. I think there should be more of our voices and our visions telling that. Beyond photos in magazines and on websites, there is a dearth of photographers doing portrait or studio (photography) here, and the workshop was intended to develop these skills as well. The goal is to give people in the communities places to go where they can get professional family portraits and the like done, someone who people can turn to if they want wedding photos or professional photos of their newborns. Aspiring Iqaluit photographer Mosie Pudloo was vocal in the benefits she felt


the workshop offered. “I felt it was important for Nunavummiut, as it sharpened our skills and knowledge. We learned from the expert but also from other (Nunavut) photographers.” The workshop, held over the period of one week in May in both classroom and


outdoor environments, covered a wide range of subjects, including exposure and composition techniques, reading light effectively, portraiture and landscape photography, studio basics, and off-camera flash. Throughout the week, business opportunities and marketing techniques remained a constant focus. “I have taught dozens of workshops,” states Brosha, “but one of the things I found


most intriguing about this particular workshop was being able to focus on the business side of photography — a subject that I think is so important for anyone wanting to do this part or full-time.”
