Well, she might be coming your way.
Kwandibens, Ojibwe (Anishinaabe), is an accomplished photographer, and she’s taken her Red Works Studio on the road to shoot portraits, headshots and promotional photos for anyone needing them. It’s fair to say that she has shot the majority of hot young Native entertainers in Canada, and quite a few from the U.S. as well.
Kwandibens arrives in Edmonton, Alberta, tomorrow (April 27) and will be conducting shoots through May 2. At this time, she still has several openings. After Edmonton, her schedule is as follows:
Regina, Saskatchewan: May 4 – 9
Saskatoon, Saskatchewan: May 11-16
Winnipeg, Manitoba: May 18-23
Thunder Bay, Ontario: May 25-30
Montreal, Quebec: June 1-6
Information on how to book a shoot can be found at her website, Redworks.ca. Whether you’re actually famous or just a legend in your own mind, this is a unique chance to work with a tremendously talented Native photographer.
Kwandibens is also taking requests for stops on a U.S. tour she is planning for the summer and fall. The booking page at Redworks.ca also has a request form for that purpose.
Her work has been featured previously on this site in the article “Photographer Nadya Kwandibens Looks at Skins in The City with ‘Concrete Indians'”. Below are some examples of some recent shots of faces you may recognize:
