Wawa Ice Fishing Derby
When Destination Ontario asked me if I'd like to cover the annual Wawa Ice Fishing Derby, I almost fell out of my chair. Northern communities have always fascinated me as subjects to photograph and I also have a pretty big soft spot for anything to do with fishing.
I booked flights that day for myself and a cinematographer up to Sault Ste. Marie on the North shore of Lake superior. From there, we drove 300km North on the Trans Canada Highway to Wawa, where we'd spend the next four days waking up early to shoot sunrise, backing up files and warming up at lunch and then going out to shoot again at sunset.
