meeting – Speaker – Spencer Wynn (Travelling with a purpose)


After graduating from what was known in the 1980’s as the Ontario College of Art, Spencer enjoyed a rich career in storytelling for over 30 years. With a long and deep history in magazines and in the newsroom at the Toronto Star, he is all about creating compelling visual narratives. Travel, news events, human interest stories and many other opportunities are all rich with images.

Travel opens one’s eyes to the world and Spencer Wynn has been fortunate to have travelled extensively. His travels include 10 trips throughout China, a two-year assignment in India, a visit to coastal villages on Greenland’s west coast, and living with Inuit in the high Arctic. Gaining an understanding of local people in these far-reaching places can make one a better photographer and a better human being.

“Combining a passion with what you love to do is the key to personal happiness”! To that end, Spencer is leading workshops in Paris and Turkey in June & July of 2019. Spencer will also be visiting other places on his travels back to Canada. Regardless of where Spencer travels, he looks at things in terms of telling a visual story.

In this presentation, Spencer will share his storytelling images, tips and some remarkable encounters with fascinating people.
