Leading a Pack of Shutterbugs

Two moms, Ingrid Bird and Lisa Breure, take their own photography experience and pass it on to their children and other kids in their community in our Showcase feature of the May issue of More of Our Canada. The Langley Fundamental Elementary and Middle School Camera Club in British Columbia is producing many future photographers! Participating in Open and Themed competitions throughout the school year, these kids not only have a lot of fun, but produce very fun photos! See more of their creativity here that we couldn’t fit in the magazine!
