Vancouver Event Photographer
As wedding season rolls down event photography quickly takes its place. Events are always happening in Vancouver, whether it be corporate, charities, fundraisers, grand openings, you name it, there’s something happening every night in Vancouver. This month we’ve covered just a handful. From BMO’s annual corporate event at the Sherton Wall Centre, UGG’s grand opening on South Granville, to Pom Wonderful’s giveaway which included premiering Morgan Spurlock’s The Greatest Movie Ever Sold to a lucky winner!

Pom Wonderful Event
Last week BMO held a small charity event in their office downtown and needed a photographer to take some photos of the event. There were a few cheque presentations and handing out of gifts to the various charities that BMO supports in the local Vancouver area. Everyone in attendance was pleasant and friendly and they did a great job of setting up the space.
For the below photos I was shooting with my flash attached for the portrait shots. The cheque presentations were shot with an off camera flash just right behind me. Advantages of using the off camera flash:
- Gives me consistent flash exposure. Shooting with an on camera flash would give you varying exposures unless you shoot in manual.
- No time wasted going from shooting portraits to the cheque presentations. I won’t be the reason why the event is held up.
- Allows me to simply point, focus, and shoot. No worrying if the photo was under or overexposed
- Only had to re-shoot a photo once because of a blinker
- No post processing needed for these shots. Quicker editing time.
The poster behind them and above their heads wasn’t my idea. I like the backgrounds as clean as possible but they wanted to make sure a person looking at the photo would know it was a BMO event.
BMW Canada launched the new 2011 5 series at Auto West BMW in Richmond on Thursday. The new car takes its design cues not from the previous generation but the one that ended in 2003, the E39 5 series. The new car chassis takes on the “F” designation whereas all previous generation models were classed with “E”. This is the longest model 5 series in the history of the BMW 5 series. Packed with a lot of technology this car is more like a mini 7 series than a 5. The styling is much more like BMW than the past series. The past series is probably one people will forget about. I don’t think there was much to like about that one, even the ///M5 didn’t look all that great. The E39 set the standard for the mid-class sedans and the new F10 series should do the same.
There was a nice assortment of exotics at the event.
Attention to detail. Check out the lights in the handles. Great for finding the handle at night.
