Backyard Rinks


Owning a magazine in Saskatoon can be tricky due to our very diverse seasons. A lot of planning is involved to ensure that the stories selected are going to appeal to our readers, in the season that we run the story. Sometimes our cover shots need to be photographed over a year in advance to plan the season just right.

That being said we shot our cover for the Winter 2012 issue in March to capture the true backyard rinks in Saskatoon. Here are a few photos of the behind the scenes at one of the photoshoots done at the Soulodre’s house in Willowgrove. At the very bottom are some of the professional photos shot by Pete Lawrence at two different rinks.
