The alum accepted multiple awards at the 2018 CAF Imagery Contest ceremony in November.

Alum Albert Law (BDes 2010) was in Ottawa in November to accept multiple awards, including Photographer of the Year, from the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF).

The annual CAF Imagery Contest celebrates photographers and videographers who capture life in CAF communities from coast to coast, and includes categories for advanced and novice contributors. Founded in 1968, the awards are granted annually in several categories. The 2018 competition included 1,418 photographic entries from 259 participants.

It's an honour to be recognized at the national level for the work I've done and I'm very grateful to have great people around me who have supported me throughout my career. Everyone from friends and mentors to the officers and soldiers that I work with; the people around you make all the difference.

Albert also received awards in the categories of People, Altered Image and Open.

After graduating from Emily Carr's Communication Design program and working for several years as a designer, Albert made the switch to full-time photography as a means to travel and to constantly push himself outside of his comfort zone. Over the past several years he has had the opportunity to collaborate with a diverse range of people, from pop stars to former special forces.

He plans to continue refining his craft and to deploy overseas with the military within the next few years. See more of his work on his website or Instagram.
