About Heroes: I have met the most amazing people when I shot these biographies. All of them were heroes in their own right. Collectively they saved thousands of people or were saved themselves. I am truly grateful to the Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary (CCGA), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the National Search and Rescue Secretariat for giving me the opportunity to tell these awesome stories of lives who have truly made a difference.
