Char­lene Rooke is a Van­cou­ver­based writer who mainly ob­sesses about wine, food and cock­tails. A for­mer travel mag­a­zine ed­i­tor, she went to New­found­land for the first time for her story about Fogo Is­land (“Rock Star,” p.66). “It re­minded me of some of the rugged spots on the northwest coast of Ire­land,” Rooke ob­serves. Of the nearly 40 hours of re­turn-trip travel be­tween Van­cou­ver and Fogo Is­land, she says: “Worth it.” Daw­son Creek res­i­dent Katie Tan­ner started tak­ing pho­to­graphs when her daugh­ter was born five years ago, but be­gan shoot­ing full-time last Jan­uary. Her spe­cialty is new­borns and chil­dren, but she does frame other sub­jects, such as the mayor of Daw­son Creek (“Best Cities for Work,” p.29). “It was re­ally fun,” Tan­ner re­calls. “He took me around to a cou­ple lo­ca­tions. We talked about the oil and gas [in­dus­try] and checked out a few things.”
