Westman cleans up after tornadoes touch down

At least two tornadoes touched down in western Manitoba on August 8, 2016. The following day I drove through the affected areas and met with residents assessing the damage and cleaning up after the storm. The article accompanying these images ran in The Brandon Sun and was republished in the Winnipeg Free Press.

Lest We Forget

On November 11, 2014 I attended the Remembrance Day Service at Vimy Ridge Memorial Park. It was a cold day but it didn’t hinder the large group of families, veterans and service men and women, who showed up to remember the sacrifices made for our country.


Boiler Magazine

In 2014, myself and four other creative communications students created a men’s food publication called Boiler Magazine. I took the following photos for an article I wrote about food & drink pairings. Chef Christopher Little, from Prairie Ink, and bartender Kaitlynd Landry, from Peasant Cookery, came up with the recipes for the spread.

This is a sample of images I took to accompany articles I wrote for The Projector’s arts and culture section.


In October, 2012, I took a trip to Churchill, Manitoba to visit a friend. I stayed in the tiny Northern town for 10 days and fell in love with the people living there and the wild atmosphere. While I only saw a polar bear once (and from a significant distance) their presence was constant — Natural Resource Officers had to scare bears out of town on multiple nights. Spending four days traveling to-and-from Churchill was one of my favourite experiences.
