Photo by David Kilabuk. As a finale to the week’s instruction, the group chose a


location with stunning scenery a short drive from the hamlet and photographed a local model, Arctic Bay resident Hershie Enoogo, who wore a range of modern and traditional clothing for the participants to practice field lighting and portraiture techniques. “This might be the most northern fashion shoot ever,” laughs Brosha. The ‘cap’ to the week also stood out to Pudloo, who found many other highlights in the workshop, which included “learning new techniques, meeting other great photographers, seeing the greatest landscape in Nunavut, and having a prominent instructor.” Kines echoed these thoughts, saying that the “entire week


was incredible, from being able to tap into Dave’s mad skills, to seeing the incredible talent that the other photographer’s have. There wasn’t a low point in the course.” As one of the main goals of the workshop was to nurture business and arts development in the communities, “time will tell as to the ultimate impact,” says Brosha, “but I’m really excited (talking to the different participants) about the impact I think this will have. Already I’m hearing a strong interest to go back to their homes and giving portraits, commercial, and even wedding photography a try… when perhaps there was a hesitation before. I’ve told the participants to stay in touch, and hopefully this time next year there will be stories of success.”

away from photographing people, this workshop has caused her to reconsider photo- graphing portraits — partially due to the strong portraiture she produced the week of the workshop, which Brosha called “incredible — she has a real gift for capturing emotion which isn’t that easy to do in portraiture”. “I hope I can return again some day in the future to do something similar,” Brosha


explains. “But then again, how fantastic would it be a few years down the road to have a Nunavummiut leading a professional photography workshop for other Nunavummiut, instead of me? That is my real goal from this week — and I think it will happen!”
