Rick Mercer and Jann Arden at the Calgary Health Trust Fundraiser

Special Event Photography with On-Site Printing

I have had the pleasure of photographing a wide range of events over the past few years, providing services from candid event photography, to formal portraits, to photobooths (with or without on-site printing). and much more. This has lead to opportunities to photograph well known local politicians and other Canadian celebrities at many of these events.

At the most recent such event, the Calgary Health Trust Funny Bone Comedy Night I got to work at a meet and greet style reception with the great Rick Mercer and Jann Arden. They were the headline act for the show and then came down to the reception to shake hands with the VIP guests and to pose for pictures with them. We had a complete studio setup with on-site printing so that each guest was able to take home a memento from the event.

Rick and Jann were incredibly gracious and they both made sure to talk to all of the participants. They were very careful to keep each conversation brief (to keep the line moving) while making everyone in the room feel important and honored to be involved. Anyone that wasn’t a huge fan of both of them prior to the event surely are now.

After the line cleared out Rick Mercer looked over at me and asked if I wanted a photo too? Of course I immediately said Yes! Fortunately the candid photography for the event was being provided by my friend Neil (of Neil Zeller Photography fame) and he was right beside me when this happened. He was ready and willing to help out! Neil took a few shots of me with the celebrities before I returned the favor and made a few images for him. It was a great way to cap a very fun event!
