Mike Deal started freelancing for the Winnipeg Free Press in 1997. Three years later, he landed a part-time job as a night photo desk editor.
His first day in the new position was supposed to be Sept. 12, 2001, but when he awoke to the news of the World Trade Centre attacks in New York on Sept. 11, he automatically headed into the newsroom and started work.
For the next few years, he split his hours at the Free Press between photo editing and photography. In 2008, Mike was hired as a full-time photojournalist.
