Winnipeg Free Press - ONLINE EDITION
My JUNO themed portrait was shot in early February and is a little bit of a departure in that I didn't get a chance to interview the subject before she had to run off to another media interview. I had maybe a minute (probably less) while she waited for her ride.
Regardless, meeting Lindi Ortega at the Winnipeg Free Press News Cafe and listening to her being interviewed by John Kendle softened the blow a great deal.
Her album, Tin Star, was nominated in the 2014 JUNO category: Roots & Traditional Album of the Year: Solo.
Though she didn't win this year, I'm sure the JUNO's haven't seen the last of her.

About Mike Deal
After freelancing for the Winnipeg Free Press for three years, starting in 1997, Mike Deal landed a part-time job as a night photodesk editor.
His first day in the new position 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.
Having also just finished shooting a personal project that involved taking 2,013 portraits using just his iPhone in the year 2013, he looks forward to taking the portrait project concept to another level. He will NOT be shooting 2,014 in 2014! Don't be surprised if he stops you in the street and demands a moment of your time. You have been warned!
Another personal passion of his is street photography, capturing the people of Winnipeg amongst the beautiful architecture of its downtown.
In his off-hours Mike enjoys taking photos with his iPhone, walks in Assiniboine Forest, and spending his free time with his partner Ariel and daughter Anna.
"I go to the street for the education of my eye and for the sustenance that the eye needs - the hungry eye, and my eye is hungry." -Walker Evans
