Yvonne bought her first camera, a Pentax Program Plus, in 1985 after graduating from Bathurst High School in northeastern New Brunswick. So significant was the purchase that it required a loan—from the local Save Easy food store where Yvonne was employed at the time. Diligently she repaid her debt over the next several pay cheques and to this day remains grateful that her employer saw potential in her budding enthusiasm for photography. Since those fledgling days Yvonne has created several thousand images for numerous national magazines, advertising campaigns and cookbooks. As for the Pentax, it was replaced long ago but Yvonne’s passion for imagery remains as strong as ever.
Yvonne is a long time member of CAPIC.
