With a long list of sold-out tour dates this past summer and the recent release of her first album in almost a decade, Shania Twain continues to be one of Canada’s most celebrated performers.
The Canadian Country Music Association® (CCMA) took over FirstOntario Centre for Canada’s biggest night in country music, celebrating the world’s top talent from the 2018 CCMA Awards stage. Broadcast live on CBC, the evening saw host Shania Twain awarded with Top Selling Album of the Year, Top Selling Canadian Album of the Year, the CCMA Generation Award and the coveted Apple Music Fans’ Choice Award.
One of the moments of the night will be Twain’s acceptance of The Generation Award. Only the second artist to receive this honour, Twain will be celebrated for her significant impact on the country music industry and her unmatchable ability to create mass awareness of country music around the globe.

I shoot live music performances and concerts. I love the excitement of entering a venue, knowing that I’ll be photographing a concert and enjoying the energy of the crowd. There’s nothing like being in a venue and looking at the expressions on the faces of people who are all transfixed by the talent onstage. I shoot about 120 shows each year, averaging 2 bands per show, as well as several all-day and weekend festivals in and around Southern Ontario. From the large venues to very small ones, bright lights or barely lit stages, I hope that my photos capture the enjoyment the artists have in doing what they love to do.
