Best Photographer

Gold Winner Stoo Metz

Silver Winner Applehead Studio

Bronze Winner Nicole Lapierre

Stoo Metz is still surprised anytime they win Best Photographer (this is their fourth year running), but knows the secret to their success is simple: “I never saw myself as someone who was this business-y, but these days when you’re trying to be a full-time photographer, you just need to learn these things. There’s no excuse about not sending out emails.” When it comes to how the high-profile shutterbug—who’s been the official photographer for Halifax Pride and Neptune Theatre, amongst other gigs—gets the money shot? “I’d mostly say I’m a people photographer: The thing I enjoy the most is people and their expressions.”
