Business Privileges...

Saturday May 20th 2017  |  Mecaglisse Racetrack

Once in a while, we come across clients that let us benefit from the photography projects we cover. Such was the case with Husqvarna, when they unveiled the new 701SM to select journalists.

After the mandate was complete, I was offered to straddle the SM, for a 30min lapping session around the superb Mecaglisse course.

Photography has always been a hardcore passion, but this is a perfect example of a client taking it to the next level, when it comes to excitement and thrill.
THANK YOU Husqvarna!
This veteran had a blast, lapping this magnificent 74-hp beast!

Peppa Pig...

Friday April 21st 2017  |  Place des Arts (Maisonneuve Theater)

The beloved cartoon character came to life to entertain children of young age, at Maisonneuve Theatre (Place des Arts).
We can't deny the popularity of Peppa, as she filled the venue with two (2) representations on the same day!
We found ourselves covering this event with the same interest and passion as any other mandate.  Just goes to show you, that when you've found your calling, you know it. 

One thing's for sure, no one can ever say that SNAPePHOTO isn't versatile.  ;)

Dixie Chicks...

Saturday April 15th 2017  |  Montreal's Bell Centre

We had the pleasure of shooting the first few songs from the Dixie Chicks concert at the Bell Centre. However, due to a misundertanding, none of the photogs had a telephoto lens, and we were assigned to take images from the soundboard, at the back of the arena.

Needless to say, we're not thrilled with the results, but still, we're not going to refrain from sharing what we were able to capture.

EYE in the Sky...

Saturday April 1st 2017  |  Olympic Stadium


A rare oppurtunity was given to select individuals on this day, as we (SNAPePHOTO, La Presse & the Journal de Montreal), were given acces to a very remote section of the Olympic Stadium, that very few people have ever set foot, the technical ring!

During the second date of this years MLB pre-season exhibition game, we were escorted by the RIO's public relations consellour, as we made our way to "heaven", in order to snap a few images from a different angle.  The route was composed of steep ladders, tight crawl spaces, and shifting through openings in concrete ceilings, thus, not for the faint of heart.

It was an awesome experience that we can add to our repertoire of "cool things done", during our functions of being a photographer.

President's Breakfast...

Wednesday March 22nd 2017  |  Mise Au Jeu (Bell Center)

The Scotia Bank invited select clients and employees, to attend a private "President's Breakfast" outing, with no other than the Montreal Canadiens owner, Mr. Geoff Molson.

Attendees were privy to hearing Mr. Molson speak about various ventures, such as the brewery, the acquisition of the Montreal Canadiens hockey team, how he came about to pick up the concert aspect, as well as details of his life's path that led him and his family to the success they know today.

Nothing short of inspiring and humbling, to see and hear a man of his stature, be so down to earth.

L'importance de la photo en Marketing et Publicité...

Depuis un certain temps, nos mandats photos incluent l'aspect marketing lors de gros événements, soit lors des matchs du CH au Centre Bell, festivals, et des matchs du MLB au Stade Olympique. Ce n'est que lorsqu'on commence à couvrir ce genre de mandats, qu'on réalise à quel point l'aspect Marketing / Publicité est si présent et joue un rôle des plus importants comme source de revenu pour ce genre d'événement. Bien sûr, cela procure une visibilité accrue pour les entreprises et leurs produits... Ce n'est pas toujours l’aspect photo le plus plaisant ou intéressant à faire, contrairement à l'aspect sports, concerts, etc..., mais c'est tout de même nécessaire de démontrer aux clients qui investissent dans une telle visibilité, que leurs produits soient mis en évidence et que leur décision d'investir en vaut la peine.

Game of Thrones...

Friday March 3rd  |  Bell Centre

Game of Thrones is quite possibly the most popular television show of all time.
Fans were heart broken when the last season ended because now, instead of waiting until April for the show return, we have to wait until next summer.

Luckily, there was a way to cure your Game of Thrones blues.

The Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience came to Montreal.

It was an immersive musical and visual experience featuring all the original music from the TV series.

It was led by the actual composer from the show Ramin Djawadi with a full orchestra, a choir and it will all be accompanied with NEW Game of Thrones footage that was shot exclusively for the concert.
