I’ve definitely got to thank Yelp Vancouver for bringing me on to the team for this night. Good drink and food was had by all, and several laughs at The August Jack in Vancouver. The event hosted three local craft brewers and about seventy or so interesting foodies who enjoyed to the last drop the formers offerings.
A few weeks back, I was hired to shoot stills and video at Surrey Central Mall for local politicians, business owners, and Target VIPs to celebrate the opening of the Surrey store.
Finally, the M6 which I sent out to Kindermann eight months ago is finally back. It didn’t take him that long to finish working on it, but it was an expensive fix, so now that its back in my hands, I got right to using it. First up, two rolls of Neopan, most of which I shot at The Vancouver Remembrance Day Celebrations, with a few outside shots to get used to it again.
This past weekend, I was proud to have been asked to attend and photograph a party, thrown by Gino Odjick for the one and only Pavel ‘Russian Rocket’ Bure, on the eve of his jersey retirement with the Canucks. During his Vancouver years, Pavel spent a lot of time with Gino on the Musqueam lands, and thus, was honoured this night by the First Nations, receiving gifts and commendations from several local chiefs and bands.
It’s been almost a year since I last photographed Guy LaFleur, and this year saw nearly three full days with Mr Flower. Guy is a one of a kind soul, who recognizes that it was not only his skill, but his fans that made him a star, and he treats them with the same amount of respect that they show him. Always happy to work with Guy. I shot mostly video this time around, so scroll to the bottom for the 3:00 feature I put together!
Good ol’ Geroy, no longer a BC Lion still finds time to come out and sign for his fans in support of BC Cancer Foundation. I’ve said it before, but if you ever have a chance to interact with this guy, you’re in for a treat. Happy to have photographed him for a third time, earlier this month.
Last week I was out at UBC Golf Club for a Tournament put on by CREW Vancouver. It was a blast to follow around special guest Kirk McLean even though the weather didn’t always treat us the best. I definitely look forward to doing it again next year.
I’ve been working with Mt Pleasant Optometry for the last few years, and after a recent round of photos at their clinic on Broadway and Quebec, I was invited out on their yearly boat trip for Canada’s night of fireworks. It was an interesting trip, for sure – I also learned that a boat is the ONLY way to really watch the fireworks.
I pulled these photos out the other day at the same time as The Dreadnoughts (last post) while looking for a photo I took of Sheryl Crow, and wanted to share them with everyone. The post features photos of Colbie Cailet, Erykah Badu, Sheryl Crow, Sugarland, and headliner Sarah McLachlan. Enjoy!
Pastime Sports and Games, the store I cover these events for opened up shop an impressive 20 years ago, and wanted to celebrate with a bang. Cue former Vancouver Giant, and NHL Rookie Brendan Gallagher, who resides here off season. Brendan is the first hockey star I have photographed who is actually younger than I am. Seven years to be exact! He was a pleasure to deal with, and will do great things in his career.
