As the first female photographer hired by the Winnipeg Free Press, Ruth has been an inspiration and a mentor to other women in the male-dominated field of photojournalism for over two decades.
Ruth brings a fresh, spirited and decidedly female energy to everything from spot news, arts and culture and the photographs that touch our hearts and change the way we think about the issues of social justice in our community.
Ruth has also been the principal photographer for the magazine Winnipeg Women from its première edition in 2000. She has shot 32 covers and hundreds of articles celebrating the success of women doing extraordinary things.
Beyond her professional life, Ruth is a strong community volunteer working and lending her talent to projects such as the famous Art of Aging Gracefully Calendar, which raised over $10,000 for the Mature Women’s Centre.
