"Club rats come one, come all. Before hitting the rock circuit this weekend, swing by the School of Photographic Arts in Ottawa (SPAO) on Dalhousie Street North for your fill of Ottawa rockers...
Among this year’s crop of grads is Jamie Kronick — when he’s not behind the lens, he’s a drummer with the band Paramedics. As part of his year-end project, Kronick approached fellow musicians to participate in his Songwriter Series...
...Kronick went to Canterbury and Glebe high schools. He later toured with the Ottawa band The Architects before picking up his first point-and-shoot camera. He started shooting bands at live shows and slowly accumulated better gear. He applied to SPAO and is finishing the portfolio program after two years of full-time study. He worked primarily with SPAO director Michael Tardioli in a process Kronick describes as a mentorship. “He forms you.”
...The results of that mentorship will be on display at SPAO’s Sixth Exhibition Portfolio Program, which features the works of 13 first-year students and 10 graduating students. April 29 – May 6. Vernissage Friday, April 29. 3-9 p.m. www.spao.ca"
