I could hardly believe it when I got the email...
The Executive Director of the Professional Photographers of Canada, Tanya Thompson, wrote to ask my permission to use the image on their website. She said that, in preparation for updating the images used on the PPOC Website, the incoming PPOC Chair, Ross Outerbridge, had selected a number of 2020 National Image Salon images to reflect our members nationwide. He picked mine to represent the Alberta page!
I thought it would be in a carousel of several images, but it's actually the ONE banner image for the Alberta page. Unbelievable!
They chose "Whimsical Wisps", a child portrait that I entered into the Salon this past January.
I took the image probably around 5 years ago in Toronto when I did a session with my best friend's family. As usual, I just let kids do their thing and that's how I got such a natural expression - it's just a natural moment of a really awesome kid. That kid is now in shock to have her portrait as the only banner image for the the PPOC Alberta page. Now that's an honour not many people can claim!
