10 things about Rose & Des

We are really excited to have Rose and Des join our team as associate photographers. They are passionate about photography and a lot of fun to be around. I asked Rose to pass on some juicy details that we could share with everyone...  
1. During the week, Des and I are cancer researchers. Our jobs involve a lot of photography; except our subjects are tumors, not people. 
2. Des carried the torch in the 1988 Olympic winter games on the first day of the Canadian leg just outside of St. John's, NL. That was a proud moment for him. 
3. We are fairly untraditional. I proposed to Des and bought him a camera instead of a ring. With intentions of formally proposing, I flung the camera bag at him. When he asked what it was for, I told him that if he accepted the camera, we were engaged. He must have really wanted that camera:) 
4. We have a really cute little boy, Andrew. His favourite words are uh-oh and that. I am sure as he gets older Mom, get that camera out of my face will be a big part of his vocabulary. That's okay, we have enough blackmail material to ensure that those teenage curfews will be respected. 
5. Des and I are real nerds. We may look normal but we are really only a few genes away from requiring pocket protectors. 
6. Our son's initials read ATP. If you are a true nerd like us, you will get that and love it. 
7. I have been doing photography since I was 15. I used to develop black and white prints in my parents' bathroom and dry my negatives clipped on their dining room fan. Our dining room and bathroom always had that vinegary darkroom smell to it. 
8. Des learned about digital photography using a little 2.1 megapixel digital elph. Some of the pictures he took with it are stunning and still hanging up as 8x10's in our house, proving that the one with the most megapixels doesn't always win the race. 
9. I am an artist at heart. My mother told me I used to sign my name by drawing a flower before I could read or write. I wish I had more time to draw, paint and sculpt, but I would require a couple extra arms and 30 hour days. 
10. Both of us have completed marathons. Des literally ran two marathons while I more or less hobbled, stumbled, and crawled my way through one (to my credit it was raining sideways). I have no plans to ever do it again.
