The Red Dress Campaign photo-shoots are taking place and will continue on throughout the summer, to add to the work of the Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women and Girls. Following the work of Jaime Black, a Metis artist from Winnipeg, created The REDress Project five years ago. It collects red dresses from the community and hangs them in public spaces as a visual reminder of the women who are no longer present.
Clear Skies Photography will do a series of photo-shoots of women in a red dress to demonstrate the realness of the Indigenous women, sisters and mothers who are too often, being lost to murder.

Vicky Laforge began her career as a social worker in the early 90's working within her own First Nation community called Nipissing First Nation. Workshops, developing training and working with individuals ranging in all issues affecting community people from addictions, suicide prevention and family interventions. With a flair for working with people she eventually began facilitating workshops and eventually provided training to addictions workers in Ontario. This grew to national work in children's programs, Aids awareness training and training for shelter workers in the Arctic.
Vicky became a strong advocate within the country in women's issues particularly with women leaving violent relationships (as a result of losing both of her parents (2006) to murder when a relative was exiting a violent marriage. This work grew through the years and she began working with the National Inquiry into Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women and Girls. Today, Vicky has attended hearings, assisted families, sat on committees for Victims with Victims Services and Corrections, and spoken at many events raising awareness and preventing further violence within Indigenous Communities. This happy-go-lucky type gal is vibrant, and enjoys looking at the positive side of life and brings this attitude with her in her speaking engagements.

At this point in my career there is not much I have not captured....I do not refuse to do projects, for example, nudes. I am open and professional in all situations. I have photographed births, boudoir, fashion, modelling shoots, high profile events, government assignments, and assisted other photography companies by being an assistant and second photographer.
