"I'm a fan, not a critic," has become a personal motto for Amy Jo since starting to write for C.I.A. in 2012 where her love for Calgary and art collided. A photojournalist by trade, her work has appeared in The Labradorian, the St. John's Telegram, the Calgary Herald, the Calgary Sun, the Winnipeg Free Press, The Sun (UK), Exposure Photo Festival, the CBC and C-ing Magazine. She owns her own photography company, Quadrophonic Image, and is also the Director of Photography for Calgary Reads. When not taking pictures or out basking in Calgary's amazing art, she can be found in her garden or with her nose in a book.
