Artsbridge Magazine

Friday, October 8th, 2010

I had the honor of having my photography in the latest issue of the Allied Arts Council’s Artsbridge Magazine, which is published biannually. Their main theme in this issue was the relationship between arts and the environment, and I was also asked to photo illustrate a couple of the stories within the magazine. My photo of Marie is across the front and back cover, with two photos of Starsha within. It was so much fun photographing for Artsbridge and I’m so thankful to have been given the chance :)

You can pick up a free copy at the Allied Arts Council office located at 318 7 Street South in downtown Lethbridge. (more…)

Drupal Camp Alberta 2010

Wednesday, September 15th, 2010

Because I design websites in addition to doing photography, I sometimes go to really nerdy conferences too! The guys at Redwall organized this year’s Drupal Camp Alberta, which was held at the University of Calgary over two days this past weekend. They had some really great speakers this time around and I learned a ton, plus had a great time with everyone. Not all nerds lack social skills :)

There are more photos after the jump. (more…)

Photo Club Presentation

Monday, September 13th, 2010

This Thursday I’ll be giving a brief talk at the Lethbridge Photo Club on how to choose a website for your photography. I’ll cover the differences between doing it yourself, purchasing a template, and hiring a designer. I won’t be talking about how to make a website, but rather how to determine what is the best choice for your work and skill level (and wallet!).

Date: Thursday, September 16th
Time: 6:30pm (I’ll be on around 7pm)
Location: Lethbridge Public Library Theatre

If you’ve never been to the Photo Club before, they allow you in for free for your first meeting to check it out and see if you want to buy a membership or not.

Hope to see you there!

2010 Lethbridge Sun Times Best of the Best: 2nd Place!

Thursday, February 25th, 2010

The results for the Lethbridge Sun Times Best of the Best contest, where residents vote for their favorite businesses, are finally in, and I am proud to announce I received second place for photographers! Thank you so much to everyone who voted and for all the support everyone has given me over the past year. I love what I do, and it is worth all the late nights and lost weekends to be able to do this for a living. THANK YOU!

I redesigned my website!

Saturday, February 20th, 2010

Woo hoo, I’ve finally redesigned www.tanyaplonka.com!

Improvements:

  • Bigger photos (especially here on the blog!)
  • Easier to find information
  • Not as much filler
  • Photos more recent than 2008!

It was so hard narrowing down photos for the galleries, and was painful to make some of the cuts I did. However, I’m so happy with the final result. I hope you like it!

Pontos de Vista

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2009

I just wanted to leave a quick note to say I am featured this month on the Portuguese photography site Pontos de Vista for my zombie photos. Woot!

If you have some free time, dig around the site… there are some really cool photos on there! It’s addictive like Flickr!

(After March, you should be able to find my gallery from this link.)
