KIDS AND YOUTH BEHIND LENSES, FOR A CAUSE!

Welcome to our photography challenge open to all kids and youth ages 18 and under in British Columbia! Participants will receive weekly prompts from which they get inspired and go out into their community – or just their own backyard- and snap away! The top photos will be chosen to go into our calendar and sold at the end of the year! Participants also have a chance to win prizes, which will be announced shortly! Additional resources such as photography classes are made available to children and youth in our 100+ partner agencies and sometimes will be open to all.

May the odds be ever in your favour!

Mathias Fast

I love marriage. I say that because I truly believe in the value of the institution, and a little bit because my wife can see this. I believe that marriage should be fun, taken seriously but also lightly, and that it is the most fascinating lesson in love. I also love people. Endlessly varied, endlessly entertaining, the people I get to meet doing this job is the reason I do it. I was gifted with a passion for photography at a young age, and that allowed me the determination to get good at it. To be able to combine my love for marriage, people, and photography as a profession is an absolute dream come true. In my personal life, I am a husband, father, and traveller. My wife is an incredibly creative spirit, who inspires and challenges my work every day. She celebrates parenthood in such a fun and quirky way, that our daughter is the single most joy in my life. I love being the man that gets to do life with them. Our time throughout the year is split between Cape Town, Tanzania, and Vancouver, so that we’re always chasing the sun. I love where we are in life and am always looking forward to the next adventure!

In addition to her practice, Laura has developed arts-based programming across Metro Vancouver that ranges from student mentoring initiatives and workshops to art competitions, artist talks, film screenings and gallery hops. She has worked with Art Vancouver, Capture Photography Festival, the Magenta Foundation, TED and more.
