O'Canada!

LITTLE SUCCESS

on a big celebration!

Brandon Ferguson: Freelance Photojournalist!

Yes folks, you heard it here first! Very proud to share a professional accomplishment from this passed Saturday. I was humbled to have been contacted by the Cambridge Times who needed a freelance photojournalist to fill in for the Canada Day festivities. 

This brought a certain sense of nostalgia out in me as one of my first conceivable careers outside of being a firefighter was to be a newspaper editor, so to be asked to contribute to the local paper I grew up reading was nothing short of a dream come true. That or perhaps me discovering habit hole with no apparent end.

What follows are a selection of my favourite photos from the day. Hope you enjoy!
