Get to know JJ...

Like most of us photographers, I consider myself to be so fortunate to be able to do what we do. I fell in love with photography when I was a child. I went through countless rolls of film photographing friends, family, pets and anything else that got in my path. Once I got a little older and discovered the magic of the darkroom I was hooked for life. I went to Victoria, BC for a year to study at The Western Academy of Photography. After graduating I came back, worked a few odd jobs to pay the bills but eventually got a position as a Jr. Photographer at the U of M Medical College. In 1993 I married my husband Mario and in ’97, we welcomed our first son, Stason into our family. It was at that point that we decided that I needed to be home to raise our family, which now includes 2 more sons, Marley and Jackson and a faithful Labrador named Cato. And so JJ Ali Photography was born. Now that the kids are getting a little older I am able to devote more time to my photography and also our Association. As Secretary/Treasurer I have been able to work with the board on a number of projects, see that our finances are kept in order and keep a record of all the goings on in our Association. My job is always evolving and never dull. I have learned so much from doing it and gained so much from working with so many gifted photographers.

Naked in the house! (kinda...)

So this year we are doing a revised shoot on the naked in the house theme from previous years.
It's all very hush hush to challenge our photographers as much as possible. So at an undisclosed location, at an undisclosed time on the 2nd of May 2010 (sunday) we will host an image challenge!

Each photographer will be given 20 minutes with an undisclosed number of models at our mystery location to create a few great images for review at a later date! The models most likley will not be naked - FYI

This is one of the best attended events on our calendar and is definitely one of the most fun and challenging - so you definitely will not want to miss this at all, for anything!

Keep watching this blog and your inbox for more details closer to the time!
