Zone Director: Michiko Nishijima

Welcome to the Atlantic Zone! My name is Michiko Nishijima. While I am originally from Yokohama, Japan, I have lived in New Brunswick, near Fredericton, for more than 20 years. A proud Canadian Maritimer, I live where we have warm Maritime hospitality!

I am very grateful to Freeman Patterson and André Gallant, who also live in New Brunswick, for giving me the joy of photography. It was a “zen” moment for me seeing the world through a camera. I became a CAPA member in 2000. I enjoy being connected with photographers across Canada and in the US through its activities and events.

The Atlantic Zone covers 4 provinces; New Brunswick, Newfoundland & Labrador, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island. Although the number of the CAPA members is smaller than most of other zones, that does not mean our passion and joy to photography is less than others at all!
