We are so excited to announce what’s coming August 18th to Ottawa Studio Works.

Blair Gable, independent photojournalist and all-around interesting guy, will be giving a presentation, showing his work and sharing his experiences.

Blair specializes in political news coverage, professional sports and environmental portraiture. He’s had inside access to federal politics that has enabled him to photograph some of the most powerful presidents, prime ministers and royals in the world. (He was recently assigned to cover Prince William and Princess Catherine while they were in Ottawa!)

He regularly shoots for Reuters News Service, Macleans Magazine, the Globe and Mail, Toronto Star and National Post newspapers and his work has been featured in Ferrari, MORE, Zoomer, Profit and Canadian Business Magazines.

I hope you’ll join us on the 18th to hear Blair talk about his 10 years of shooting as an editorial photographer – from community newspapers to international news wires. His photo work will be exhibited  as well.
