Partners in Photography

Lambton College Digital Photography is fortunate to have a great partner helping to advise and contribute to our program's success.  James Cowie operates Photo Tour Trekkers, Web Link a unique business that caters to photographers who want to travel the world, and who doesn't?

Cowie also is a member of the Digital Photography program's Program Advisory Committee, bringing his 30+ years of Photography business experience to our planning and strategies.   This fall marked the 10th anniversary of Photo Trekkers and Lambton Digital Photography partnered with them for the anniversary event held at Museum London.

Our student team photographed all aspects of the event for Trekkers, and created studio portraits of each guest in attendance. In addition we printed the hundreds of photos on the spot, allowing the guests to take home the portraits at the end of the evening.  Our students gained some valuable real-world event photography experience and we also gave Lambton College a great presence in the photography community of south-western Ontario.

Photos by our team were also used for Photo Tour Trekkers social media /  Facebook, Monthly Newsletter and promotions.

Partnering with industry representatives, and meeting nearly 200 avid photographers, was a win-win partnering for the Digital Photography program.  You can have your cake and eat it too!
