Rowing Photography Assignment - Ottawa Magazine

Last summmer I spent many early mornings photographing the Ottawa Rowing Club for Ottawa Magazine. It was a fun assignment.

This week I return to the rowing club to present the collection of photos I produced last summer. Rowers (elite and newbie) will be there as well as many people intrigued by the fun at the rowing club.

The nice thing is YOU are invited to come and see what the club is all about. Come for the people, the rowing or the photos!

There will be some complimentary copies of Ottawa Magazine and photos will be available for purchase.
