Today I am in Montreal.
I have been hired by an agency that specializes in media and public relations.
My mandate is to photograph 2 events in the day of celebrity designer Philippe Starck.
Mr. Starck is in Montreal to kick off the construction of a new condo development of his design.
10am-12pm - Ground breaking ceremony and press conference. Position battles with other media. Photos are sent to the client minutes after the event wraps. Images will be used as handouts for media.
5 à 7 in the showroom. Philippe, food, and cocktails. An opportunity to learn more about the project. Meet other key principals. Classic event photography - groups, candids, portraits, action and ambiance, food and drink, documentary. Image delivery within hours.
Media and public relation professionals are good contacts for me.
