Assisting – Joaquin and Ana Pedrero @ Burnaby Lake Greenhouses


Despite all my personal posts this week (have to get back into writing SOMEhow)… I have been working. I recently assisted  Joaquin and his wife Ana Pedrero on a job for Burnaby Lake Greenhouses shooting their winter floral arrangements. For those of you that don’t know Burnaby Lake Greenhouses, they are a HUGE operation (they’re the people who supply Costco etc). They have over 150 acres of land, 75 of which is warehouse/greenhouse. One of the really neat things about being there was seeing all the employees zipping around on bicycles to get from place to place as it’s too far to walk quickly. I found out they have 250+ bikes on site, crazy…

Crazy awesome.

It was great working with Joaquin and Ana and I hope to be on set with them again sometime soon!
