Photo courtesy of local photography whiz and all around good guy Chris Windeyer.
The guy on the left is Jimmie Papatsie, star cameraman with many years of experience in Nunavut (well, his whole life).

He is a local legend, and the most talented shooter and editor I have ever seen.

I've been working as a reporter for two and a half years in Nunavut, and now when I show up with Jimmie, I actually get respect from people. You can hear the wheels turning in their heads, "Well, he's working with Jimmie, maybe he isn't full of shit".

Jimmie makes me look good, glad to see Chris making him look good in this photo, from a military exercise off of Kimmirut.
