|Billie Stechyshyn is a self taught, ameteur photographer. She started learning from photography sites and friends, "my friends and photography group really encouraged me to keep going and here I am now".
"Thanks to the Thunder Bay Memories group for all the likes. This helped me a lot to pursue this new venture. Started learning about two years now and really started getting serious about photography in the last 6 months."
"I constantly have my camera and my GSD pretty much at my side at all times. My dog, Jazz, is very helpful finding the critters for me on our walks and spot things for me to take pictures of. It's very nice and calm when wildlife is involved. I have no preference, anything that catches my eye I will take a photo of. I live on Lake Superior and get many nature pictures."
Billie was born and raised in Red Lake, Ontario, sunset country of the North. She met the love of her life and moved to Thunder Bay in 1984. In 1990 they purchased their home in what is now what is called Shuniah, Ontario, 20 minutes east of Thunder Bay.
"I have always enjoyed the outdoors. I did a lot of fishing back in the day. I am also very lucky to work at the restaurant down the road and always have a view of our wonderful Lake Superior."
Thank you all for taking the time to look at my photos.
