I mentioned it a little while ago, but now I can actually confirm it. I'm putting on a little art show in January featuring the work of Victoria's concert photographers.
The idea behind the event came while at a Peninsula Makes Things meetup in Sidney in early September. I ran the idea past Al Smith who was instantly on board.
YYJ Rocktographers is a photography event showcasing the work of a thriving concert photographer community in Victoria, BC. In essence the show is about celebrating the hard work of all these great photographers that sometimes goes unrecognized. Everyone involved is extremely talented, has their own style, and are wonderful human beings that I get to share a photographers pit with quite frequently.
Slowly all the pieces are coming together and it's getting exciting to work on putting the event together every night. Big thanks to Al Smith of VIC42 for letting us use his studio for the event and the outstanding support he's been giving me. Also my good friend Kathryn Lancashire for whipping up a website and logo for the event.
On January 22nd, 2014 we will be hosting an opening gala shindig for the event. There might be some live music, beverages, and good times. I highly recommend you add it to your calendar.
