MAY 12, 2018 !!

Manitoba Photo Events is excited to announce that we will be hosting Paul Zizka ( in Winnipeg on April 28, 2018.

Some of the topics he will cover are: Adventure Photography The Power of the Human Element in Landscape Photography Shooting Stars: A Zooming Introduction to Astrophotography

The event will be held, as in previous years, at the Samuel N. Cohen Auditorium in St. Boniface Hospital.

Please see attached poster or visit our website ( for all the details on how to sign up. The price is currently only $80 per person but will increase to $100 after January 31st so be sure to register early. We also have a special rate for high school students (limited seats); details are available on the registration page of our website.

To celebrate our 5th year, the team is considering hosting a social gathering and gallery viewing the evening before (on Friday, April 27, 2018) in the atrium of the Samuel N. Cohen Auditorium. It would be a fun opportunity to meet and visit with other photographers that are attending the event on Saturday. There would be no additional cost beyond your paid registration for the Saturday event. 

We hope you can join us in 2018 for a fantastic weekend of photographic learning and inspiration!

Check out the extra weekend workshops in the poster below.  The fee for either workshop is $100 and space is limited so get in early.  (THESE WORKSHOPS ARE NOW SOLD OUT BUT YOU CAN PUT YOUR NAME ON A WAITING LIST)


Join Paul Zizka and Manitoba Photo Events for a walk on The Dark Side.

Paul will lead a small group, demonstrating his photographic strategy and technique for shooting, when the sun goes down. Mother Nature may influence what we see, from clear starry skies to clouds and ambient light. From his years of experience Paul assures us there is always something interesting to capture at night.

Registrants will receive an update on the meet-up location at Bird’s Hill Park in April 2018.
