Rhea Tregebov – Poet & Author
I just wanted to do a blog post about a lovely woman I had the pleasure of meeting this summer. Her name is Rhea Tregebov and she is an award winning author of poetry, fiction and children’s picture books. She is also an Associate Professor of Creative Writing at the University of British Columbia.
My friend Billie Livingston, author of One Good Hustle, who I photographed recently, gave Rhea my info and so she got in touch with me. Rhea needed an author photo for her new poetry book, All Souls, which is out now.
The photography session with Rhea was very straight forward as she just wanted to get a photo in the can and move on with life. She needed a full body portrait shot as the photo was to be for the inside sleeve of a book. I could tell what a great lady she is to work with. We got a good shot for her book and her publisher was happy too.
It was a great experience. Rhea and her husband Sam welcomed me into her home in Vancouver, where we did the shoot. It turned out that her house was one that I had spent many childhood hours in because a friend of mine had lived there. It is a beautiful home.
Rhea’s book of autobiographical poetry, All Souls, launch earlier this month and you can read about it in WE Vancouver: New works from Annabel Lyon, Rhea Tregebov, Linda Svendsen.
You can find more information about Rhea on her website: www.rheatregebov.ca
Although I could not make it to the opening, I will definitely be getting a copy for myself.
My best to you Rhea. Thank for a lovely photography session.
