November General Meeting: November 22, 2017

Topic: Be a BIG fish in a small pond: Brian Thompson, photographer


Doors open at 7:00 p.m. Meeting Starts at 7:30 p.m.

Brian will be sharing with members some of the highlights of his 31 years as a staff photographer at The Expositor and will touch on his personal ethics as they pertain to news photography.  Working at a smaller paper has provided him with some amazing opportunities that may not have come his way had he been working at one of the bigger urban dailies in Toronto or elsewhere.  Since 2006, he has garnered 11 Ontario Newspaper Awards, an achievement which is very personally rewarding to him.  Brian will also share some of his personal photography outside of work for The Expositor, and his involvement with the Brant Camera Club, of which he is the president.
