Holy smokes am I EVER behind on blogging. I use my business account to keep everyone up to date these days most of the time, but when I can I like to try to get caught up over here as well. This post has been a LONG time coming, but I try to make sure I blog every session I do unless I don’t have a model release.
I have been part of the Lower Mainland Branch committee for the Professional Photographers of Canada (PPOC) for a couple of years now. Most recently, this year I have taken over role as chair of the committee. Last year I really wanted to organize a “big name” speaker to come and talk to our local members and give us something to get excited about! Since I had just done Scott Robert Lim’s Bahamas tour, seen him at WPPI and done Image Explorations with him on Vancouver Island the year prior I knew that he was just the guy for the job! I asked if he would be interested and he jumped right in. He stayed with us so I had a blast hanging out with one of my favourite mentors and the master of the use of off camera flash. Here are a few shots we took at Granville Island of our models during the demonstration part of his class that day.
Huge thank you to Scott for coming all the way up here and sharing so much knowledge with our members! I hope we can do it again sometime soon!
