We love asking BIG questions. We love photography. And we love what we call “the GBA” (Greater Barrie Area). Put all three together and it’s the perfect recipe for a volunteer community project – curating conversations with those who live, work and play in our region.

Our mission is to foster empathy, kindness, have a little fun, and to contribute to that wonderful sense of community Barrie is known for.

It’s been an incredible journey so far and we’ve shared amazing – and often hilarious – insights from people who opened up to us about life, love and what makes them get out of bed each morning.

Thanks for stopping by. We hope you enjoy our people mosaic. Who knows? Maybe someday you’ll find yourself in front of our lens.
