So much is happening in the photography world at the moment, I’m not exactly sure where to begin. I’ve had the chance to work for a variety of events and functions these last 3 weeks, it’s exactly what I wanted for the new year, shoot more. I’ll start in chronological order since it seems to make the most logical sense.
In early January, I had a chance to take pictures at our associate party at the Rosewood Hotel Georgia, where I work. I’m planning to do a blog post soon of all the associates I’ve had a chance to shoot since we have such an array of talent at our hotel, I’ve had a chance to use them as models. Here are some photos from our associate party, where a few Canuck players made an appearance.
In a few days, the Rosewood Hotel Georgia is opening a upscale lounge and bar, Prohibition, located in the basement level. As described on the website ” As we travel back in time into the Roaring Twenties with daily live musical entertainment and sleek interiors reminiscent of the era’s speakeasies, our bartenders bespoke cocktails will challenge convention while honoring the history of the craft of bartending.”
Here’s a photo of our new Prohibition team:
I had the opportunity in the first week of February to shoot for two organizations, the Canadian Cancer society who is gearing up for the Daffodil Dash, and Relay for Life and the Alzheimer’s Walk, Walk for Memories which took place in Burnaby. Here are some photos of this event!
Relay for Life
In my last post I was telling you about a book I was reading. “Quitter-closing the Gap between your day job and dream job”, by Jon Acuff. Some sit in cubicles of their office dreaming of what they wish to have become, while others still are chasing after their dreams right from school. This book was a little deceiving at first, with the title ” Quitter . One would think that after reading the book, you would be ready to quit your job and live the dream False. Jon Acuff puts things into perspective, and what you should be doing at your day job to make you more successful. Here are a few points I took away from the book:
There’s a lot more in the book, but those were a few points I thought that were worth mentioning for those who were looking to separate from themselves from their day job and dream job. Worth reading if you’re purusing your “dream” job
And as always I love food, and I can’t resist talking about it. So here are a few places worth mentioning.
New restaurant: L’abbatoir. Rating: 5/5 Service, food, and atmosphere were awesome. Helen and I split the Venison tartar, while she had the roasted scallops, and I had the smoked duck breast. We ended the night with our own desserts Vanilla and yogurt panna cotta
Green apple sorbet, honey thyme granola, butterscotch, and the lemon meringue
Meyer lemon tart, candied kumquats, white chocolate ice cream.
