Special air quality statement in effect

Deal, Mike


Mike Deal’s first day at the Winnipeg Free Press was supposed to be September 12, 2001.

But when he woke to the news of the two towers on September 11, he automatically headed into the newsroom.

For the next few years, he split his hours at the Winnipeg Free Press between photo editing and photography. In 2008, Mike was hired full-time as a photojournalist.

Mike’s training includes a journalism diploma from the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology in Calgary. He also spent time at the University of Manitoba, working at the Manitoban and the U of M photo club and taking fine art courses.

In his off-hours Mike enjoys taking photos with his iPhone (he is a gadgetaholic too), walks in Assiniboine Forest, and spending time with his partner Ariel and daughter Anna.
