Recently I was asked by PR Associates to photograph the Association of Mining and Exploration Conference at the Westin Bayshore downtown Vancouver. This is an event I covered last year as well and I was delighted to see that I would have the opportunity to capture Jean Chretien and Gordon Campbell speak at the Awards Dinner.

Covering the event gave me the opportunity to see Mr. Chretien speak and he started by poking a bit of fun at himself wondering how he was up so late (PST vs. EST).

Jean Chretien is an excellent speaker (most past PM’s are, doncha know?) but I found he had an extra wow factor when in person. This is one of the many things I enjoy about event coverage, the ability to see things that aren’t usually accessible to the general public.

I look forward to the possibility of covering this event next year and the interesting speakers that it may bring.
