I’ve recently become a bit of a boat nerd. Okay more than a bit considering I took a substantial detour after a shoot in Vienna in late 2016 to fly to London where I visited the National Maritime Museum. There I checked out some original tall ships from the 16th and 19th centuries. (See my blog post if you’re curious).
So it’s no surprise that I absolutely love this festival. I’ve shot it many times now and I think it’s one of the best festivals in the Lower Mainland for a variety of reasons.
The festival layout is very organic, with many areas for you and your family to discover. You’ll find artists and performers around every corner, historical figures who’ve been brought to life by actors, activities for the kids, and of course tall ships, fishing boats and many other types of floating vessels .
I’m inspired by events such as this one, where education and fun have been rolled into one amazing time and place.
Jon’s ability to capture the spirit and essence of a festival is consistently shown in the photos he takes. His skills and professionalism as a photographer are a big reason why we enjoy having Jon on our media team—he’s also a pretty nice guy too.Bryan Tasaka - City of Richmond, Manager, Major Events & Filming
