There are two things in life that mean more to me than anything, my family and my photography. My family is my life and photography is my passion. With over 10 years of experience working throughout southern Alberta as a photojournalist and a traditional portrait photographer, I can confidently capture the ideal candid moments and create the images you are looking for.

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.
