On the opening night of YYJ Rocktographers I was asked by Dave and Rebecca if I could help put together a photographer team for a benefit concert they were putting on for Hannah Day. I can honestly say it has been one of the most fulfilling and moving experiences of my photography career to date.
The wonderful thing about the Hope For Hannah benefit concert was seeing musicians, artists, businesses, photographers, and a community to support this little girl in her fight against the odds. We live in a beautiful place and sometimes we loose track of real struggles. So far 2014 has really shown me that this is a community that cares for each other. Supporting each other not just during tough times but also in times of celebration.
We shot sound checks, volunteers, setup, backstage, in the green room, princesses, marmots, bands, friends, and family. It was a stellar day that I can't say enough good things about. The bands were amazing.
It was a good day to support something bigger than us.
All of my photos from Hope For Hannah are on my flickr.
