The Ottawa Premiere of Corner Gas: The Movie

Last night we were invited to the Ottawa premier of Corner Gas: The Movie.  Creator of the show Brent Butt was there with some of the other cast members, Prime Minister Harper's wife Laureen,  the Honourable Shelley Glover, Minister of Heritage and other VIPs.  With the red carpet, screening and reception it was looking a bit like Hollywood here in the Nations capital region.  Here are some of my favourite photos from the evening and I must say I really enjoyed the movie. It really is refreshing to see our stories being told with Canadian talent and in our own way.  When asked whether he could have imagined the success of Corner Gas,  Brent Butt said that he didn't think anyone was going to watch it so they didn't have an agenda but just did what they thought was really good.  :)

Remembrance Day 2014 in Ottawa

Approximately 50,000 people turned up for the Remembrance Day Ceremony at the National War Memorial in Ottawa.  It was a beautiful day with warmer than normal temperatures - very much like the day Corporal Nathan Cirillo was murdered on the same site three weeks prior.    Her Royal Highness Princess Anne along with her husband Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence were also in attendance.

Ten Minutes to Photograph a Princess

I was hired by the British High Commissioner recently to photograph Her Royal Highness Princess Anne who would be visiting Ottawa and unveiling a bronze commemorative plaque in honour of 70 Canadian World War I veterans who were awarded the Victoria Cross.  

I was a bit nervous.  This was my first time being hired to photograph a royal visit.   So here are some of my favourite photos from that event.  All photos were shot with either the #Fuji #XT1, #XE2, 18-55 or 55-200 lens.

Veterans Appreciation Day

Today my father and other war veterans were honoured at the 19th Annual Veterans Appreciation Day.  Mr. Royal Galipeau, MP for Ottawa-Orleans presented Veterans of the Second World War with a limited-edition pin and certificate in recognition of their service to our country.  I am always proud of my father but today was special.  We must always remember them.
