Young Women In Energy Corporate Photography and Events

For a number if years now I have worked with Young Women In Energy for their corporate portrait and event photography in Calgary. If you haven’t heard of YWE then please check out there website .

I don’t want to say too much about the YWE as I don’t feel I can do them justice with my words but what I can say is that it’s really an amazing organization that focuses on and cultivates women in the oil and gas industry. As a young women that spent my years at school leading towards and then all of my career prior to changing to photography working in oil and gas, they really resonate with me as a person and as a professional.

The women that they have as members and running the show are some of the brightest and smartest I have had the pleasure of meeting. Many of the women I have met at YWE events have been have been forging a way through the Oil and Gas industry and making it easier for the women following them to be able to make their mark as well. All while continuing education in MBA’s, doctorates, a whole plethora of degrees and awards. Then on top of this many are also starting families.

One really apparent area that I witness at the YWE is the encouragement of peer to peer mentoring and support between the members. Raising themselves up as a group while still meeting their own goals.

Every year the YWE has an awards ceremony and I have had the pleasure of capturing the corporate portraits of the winners since the beginning and it is something that I look forward to each year. As someone that tended to lean towards overachieving at everything I set my mind to, its so interesting for me to be around others that do the same. There is a drive and passion that is infectious to be around.

As I said I don’t feel I can really articulate in words everything that the YWE is and has become but I do recommend checking them out. You will also be able to see my imagery of past award winners on their site also.
