Lethbridge World AIDS Day 2012

Lethbridge World AIDS Day 2012

This year I had the honor of photographing the World AIDS Day event held by the Lethbridge HIV Connection in Galt Gardens. People gathered together to form a human ribbon, illuminated only by candles (such a wonderful idea!). Despite it being a little chilly the turn out was great, and I got to crash the fashion show at the SAAG in my full winter attire, climb through a little trap door, and take the photo from the SAAG’s roof… not your typical Friday night! The wind made the candle-lit ribbon short lived, but it turned out great despite that :) (more…)

Hawksley Workman | Live in Lethbridge

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

This was possibly the best Lethbridge show this year! The Geomatic Attic brought in the super talented Hawksley Workman to Lethbridge this November and due to popular demand, the show was upgraded to Southminster United Church. It was the perfect venue for his stripped down show, which featured him on guitar and Mr. Lonely on piano and no other band members. He told hilarious stories in between songs, and drew out the show and over-sang because of how great the audio was in that space. His performance was stunning and sounded just perfect. He was so expressive that I couldn’t help but take a few photos! (more…)

Lethbridge Zombie Walk 2012

Saturday, October 13th, 2012

Lethbridge’s most recent zombie walk was yet again a huge success! This year the weather was gorgeous so there were more summer themed zombies, and as usual the makeup and costumes were so impressive! It’s great that so many adults and children can get together and have such a great time while shuffling along and eating brains :) I love when spectators pull their cars over to watch and participate when all the zombies attack them!

Coulee Carnage: Hammer Out MS | Warhammer Tournament

Monday, July 2nd, 2012

I have a feeling most of the people reading this blog don’t know what Warhammer is, and honestly, I don’t know much about it myself ;) (basically it’s a tabletop fantasy strategy war game, but Wikipedia does a better job describing it). The important thing, though, is that some guys here in Lethbridge got together and organized a weekend Warhammer tournament in efforts to raise money for MS. They had a killer turnout, and all together they raised $5000 for the MS Society! They got some great media coverage for the event, Coulee Carnage, and are going to run it again next year. I’m sure they will easily top that amount on the next one. Great works, guys! (more…)

Great Lake Swimmers | Southminster United Church, Lethbridge

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012

I haven’t had a lot of time for seeing bands lately, but when I heard about a concert happening at this venue I just had to go. I’ve also fallen into a rut of only going out to see bands I already know, but I hadn’t heard much of either Cold Specks or the Great Lake Swimmers before, and thought an early evening spring concert in an old church was the best environment for some musical experimentation!

The show was put on by Geomatic Attic and hosted in the Southminster United Church, which had such beautiful acoustics. Both bands gave powerful but mellow performances, though I felt Cold Specks stole the show. Though soft-spoken while making small talk, her voice filled the church when she sang. She performed her last song without guitar and without a microphone and it resonated throughout the entire space. Goosebumps! (more…)

For once it didn’t rain, and the Lethbridge Annual MS Walk was a huge success! This was my first year involved as the official photographer and I had a great time. The participants raised a ton of money for MS research, the volunteers did an amazing job organizing the event, and everyone had a lot of fun. I’m so glad I got to take part!
