Magic behind the lens
Colin Corneau is a photographer based in #Winnipeg #Manitoba, near the longitudinal centre of Canada and not far from the geographic centre of North America.
He brings 25 years of experience as a daily media photojournalist to your event, portrait or idea. He also shares the experience of extended visits to China, Thailand, Nepal and other countries with his work.
Colin has learned first-hand of the value #imigrants brings to our society, from decades as a newspaper photographer seeing the positive effects #newcomers have on the communities they join, to personal friendships with people from all continents. It's his hope that his photography can be a way to introduce our newer friends, neighbours, and colleagues to #Canadians.
