YORKTON - Local amateur photographer Tammie Latimer has recently had one of her photos published in ‘Our Canada Magazine'.
“We have a personal subscription to Our Country Magazine and they always have a call out for Canadian stories and photos,” she said.
“The magazine had requested stories from all Ukrainian Canadian people to celebrate our heritage and support the people of Ukraine.
The photo is of Latimer’s daughter Sarah.
“The photo of her is in her traditional Poltava costume,” explained Tammie Latimer, adding her daughter has “danced with Yorkton's Troyanda club for seven years.”
The photo was taken just on the east side of Yorkton in the early evening one fall day.
“The photo was taken in the fall of 2020 when we were all still locked down and looking for any reason to dress up and get out,” said Latimer.”
As for having the magazine chose her work, Latimer said is came as a surprise even though she had submitted the photo hoping it would be picked.
“I actually submitted the photo in the spring of 2021 and was very surprised when they called in 2022 to ask permission to use the photo,” she said, adding “the photo was just taken with my phone camera.”
Latimer said she typically just takes photo for herself, so it was nice to have it selected.
“I do enjoy taking photos but just for myself,” she said.
