Manitoba Wildlife

 This is Part 2 of a series of posts featuring the photography of Brent Sharp. Spending time in our beautiful Manitoba Parks, as well as some northern communities, have provided Brent with an opportunity to photograph some of our wildlife.

 The coat colour of black bears is commonly black.
 However, it can range from blond, cinnamon or light brown 
to dark chocolate including many intermediate colour combinations. 



Brent Sharp lives in Winnipeg, with his wife, Gwen, and their son, Jacob. He's a carpenter by trade, but says he felt the need for a hobby that was not related to woodworking.  

In 1988, he got is first camera, an old 35 mm, from a pawn shop, by trading his time. He learned photography through reading and a lot of practice. Thirteen years ago, he got his first DSLR. By this time, he had come to realize that he could use photography to express himself. He took literally, the expression, "A picture paints a thousand words."

 Brent says he's always looking for an adventure, and something new to challenge himself with. He can never get enough of the outdoors....as we can see from his photography! His travels have taken him to Europe, Mexico, the US, and from coast to coast to coast. 



Brent now works as a teacher, training other carpenters. He's kept his passion for woodworking, but photography is slowly taking over. He's always trying to create more behind the camera than behind the computer. His own studio is now on the horizon, and his goal is to share something new with people every week. You can follow him on Instagram- bgassociates
