Ottawa Riverkeeper Gala 2016
Over 400 river lovers came to the grounds of the Lemieux Island Water Purification Plant to celebrate the Ottawa River. We hope that you agree it was a magical location – surrounded on all sides by the river,
I am thrilled with the video that Craig made to showcase our 2016 Riverkeeper Gala. Craig is very professional, fun to work with, and his final product beautifully captured our magical night by the river. It certainly leaves the viewer wanting to be there!

Behind the Scenes
This years’ Ottawa Riverkeeper Gala was an amazing event with an extremely high profile guest list; Sophie Gregoire-Trudeau, Jim Watson, and Elizabeth May, were just a few of the honorary guests. The guest list was so stacked, in fact, that it presented a few interesting challenges while shooting. I had to be quick on my feet if I wanted to get good shots. I had to work around the security detail, photographers, and media representatives, not to mention all the other guests that were eager to bump elbows with the VIPs.
For this shoot, I added a variable ND filter to my lens, which cut down the sun light and allowed me to adjust the exposure as the evening progressed without needing to change any camera settings. This filter was a great addition to my gimbal setup and will now be a permanent part of my event kit.
