Native Education College Graduation Ceremony

Vancouver event photographers are lucky — there is an incredible diversity of assignments to shoot in the area.  The Native Education College class of 2010 celebrated their graduation at the Joe Mathias Centre in North Vancouver the other day.  I was honoured to be asked to shoot the ceremony.

Congratulations to the grads for all their achievements!

The Beast of Bottomless Lake

BREAKING NEWS:  The Beast of Bottomless Lake nominated for Best Canadian Feature Film and wins People’s Choice Award at the Okanagan International Film Festival!

The Beast of Bottomless Lake wins People

The Beast of Bottomless Lake also just won Best Picture at the Mississauga Independent film festival, so we’re on a roll!  I was the film’s Stills Photographer.  You can see a slideshow of my stills on The Beast of Bottomless Lake’s website.

Reel West used one of my photos on the cover of their magazine:

Reel West Magazine Cover - Beast of Bottomless LakeThe Beast was made on a razor-thin budget and was a labour of love for all involved.  This is a little movie with a huge heart, and it’s a real pleasure to see it recognized with awards at the first two film festivals in which it has appeared. You can find out more about The Beast by visiting the film’s website.

In addition to being Stills Photographer for the production, I also play the role of Ernie McKellar in the film.  Ernie is a documentary film-maker, and much of the movie is seen through his lens.

When the movie comes out in a theatre near you, go see it!

Transylvania – Miklosvar, Romania

I just got back from a trip to Europe where I traveled by train through France, Switzerland, Austria, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, and Turkey, following the route of the Orient Express. Perhaps my favourite stop in Eastern Europe was Miklosvar, the Romanian village that time appears to have forgotten. People here live much as they did hundreds of years ago, drawing water from wells, riding horse and cart, tending to their animals (cows, goats, sheep, chickens…). It’s no wonder big budget Hollywood epics such as Cold Mountain choose to film in this region; the countryside is like something out of a fairy tale, like Western Europe might have looked before the industrial revolution.

Genevieve - Is it pollen, dust, or tiny flies filling the air in the second-from-the-top pic with the happy lamb?

Such lovely images – thank you for letting me travel through them!

And, I just LOVE the photo of the black kitty with the white nose twisting over and between the blue “barreaux” of the windowsill. Somewhere in France?

Thierry - Bonjour Fabrice,

Patricia m’a envoye le lien vers ces belles photos deMiclosoara. C’est que je suis en ce moment a Timisoara (une grosse ville du Banat). L’an dernier j’ai anime un atelier d jeunes documentaristes a Sibiel en Transylvanie, un tres beau village, tres semblable – seule la route et la rue sont beaucoup plus defoncees…
Merci. A bientot
