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. I first picked up a camera while I was at the University of Lethbridge. This is where I fell I love with taking pictures and capturing moments. This is also where I began my photography career, working as a photojournalist at the student newspaper, The Meliorist, and later on as a freelance photographer for the Lethbridge Herald.
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 moments in time continued to evolve as I started to explore the world of studio photography. From weddings to family portraits and everything in between, I’ve been able to capture all these moments and tell hundreds of stories.
For the last 8 years I’ve been based in Calgary with my own studio, Filipek Photography.
Now my days are filled looking after my 2 amazing kids as a stay at home dad while at the same time being able to work throughout southern Alberta as a portrait and wedding photographer I can confidently capture that ideal candid moment and create the images you are looking for. 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.
Contact me today! I’d love to tell your story and capture your moment.
