In 2009 a team of Winnipeg photographers opened The River Studio, an art space located in the heart of Osborne Village in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The team operated as a collective hosting art exhibits and offering shooting space to photographers.
Fast forward to today... The River Studio Inc. is still owned and operated by founding photographers Lisa Waldner and Ronnie Abelada. Highly skilled professionals with years of experience, Lisa is at the forefront of the business and specializes in commercial photography while Ronnie supports the business behind the scenes, in addition to working on his own brand and artistic aspirations. They have held exhibits at numerous local festivals including Flash Festival and The Winnipeg Folk Festival. The duo still collaborates with other artists and are active in the greater art scene to this day.
