My passage into this creative medium began when I graduated from the University of Lethbridge in 2001 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts, majoring in Photography.
My love of photojournalism and being able to capture a moment in time began when I worked as the photo editor for the university’s student newspaper, The Meliorist. My drive to work in the industry continued to blossom as I worked as a freelance photographer at The Lethbridge Herald for 4 years.
But in the end my love of people and the creative freedom of studio photography led me back to where I am today. Since my time at The Lethbridge Herald, I’ve worked as an associate photographer for Kimmet Photography in Lethbridge and for the last 5 years I’ve been based in Calgary with my own studio, Filipek Photography.
Through my photographs I tell stories, your stories. Whether it’s your wedding, the birth of your first child, or you crossing the finish line at a major sporting event, I will be there to capture that perfect moment in time and tell your story.
