And the winner is...

Thank you to the fans who took time to vote for the CJFL Fans Choice Photo of the Year.  1,163 votes were cast and a winner has been chosen!

Wanda Harron captured more than just football on the sidelines this past season for the Regina Thunder.  She took some unbelievable action photos, but it was a moment shared between coach and player that stuck out above the others.  It's the photo that gives her the CJFL Fans Choice Photo of the Year award.

About Wanda Harron Photography

My interest in photography began in about 2009 when I purchased a used DSLR & focused mainly on nature, landscapes and wildlife.

With my son in minor football at that time, I tried my hand at some action photography to get shots of him.  From there, Estevan high school teacher Stacy Dutka invited me to shoot a basketball tournament & then I started getting asked to capture some minor hockey games.  I was hooked.

I contacted the Thunder in 2015 about shooting some games just to gain experience and the club agreed.  Been roaming the sidelines for the team since 2016.  In 2016, I approached the Regina Red Sox of the Western Canadian Baseball League.  Been regularly shooting for them now for three seasons.

Photography has become such a passion for me.  It's more than just getting that good action shot, which I still strive to do.  It's about telling a small part of a story or emotion that each game has.  

I'm grateful to all those that have added to & support this passion.  I've been blessed to be asked to help capture memories for the 2016 Saskatchewan Summer Games, the 2018 SaskTel Tankard, the Regina Riot, countless minor hockey games, high school sports, synchronized swimming, other sports, graduations and families.

Big thanks go to my husband Dave and my son Kyle for understanding how photography feeds my soul.

Wanda is never afraid to try something new and always enjoys looking for different types of sports to stretch her photography skills.

Below is the CJFL Fans Choice Photo of the Year along with other examples of Wanda's work.  Congratulations Wanda Harron, keep up the great working covering the CJFL!
