So for the second year in a row, I was honored to be the exclusive event photographer for Oppotaco‘s big night of fund raising for Baseball Canada. Last year’s event (which can be found here) was a huge success so this year all eyes were on Cho & Delfino to see if they can deliver the goods once again and deliver they did! Here are some of my favorite shots from the event, enjoy!
Here are some red carpet pix. The night was cold and the red carpet was placed strategically beside the entrance but that meant a lot of the guests were still somewhat frozen after they checked in their coat and got ready to take their picture. As a photographer, you have to be able to think quickly on your feet and within less than a minute somehow establish a rapport with the subject(s) to the point where they’re comfortable enough to not only let you take their photo, but seem somewhat jovial in the process. It’s harder than it sounds, but here are a few of my favorites;
Here is the mega talented (and Juno award winning) Tomi Swick killing his set and later taking a shot of Patron with his band. I met Tomi at last year’s event and he was just as cool and fun loving this year as when we first met.
