This week (Thursday night and Friday morning), I was asked to put on one of my many hats (this time a hat which has been stashed at the back of my closet for many years) and become official event photographer for a major conference/”conversation” being hosted by UBC’s Centre for the Study of Democratic Institutions (CSDI). The Institute is hosted by the Department of Political Science and is an exciting addition to the university. Undoubtably one of the biggest events of the year was held this week when former Canadian PM, the Rt. Honorable Paul Martin came to speak at the Museum of Anthropology in an open-to-the-public “conversation” moderated by the CBC’s very capable and charming veteran reporter, Ian Hanomansing (the Anderson Cooper of Canada?). Here are some photos from the event.
Please note… I am not a professional photographer. Heck, I’m not even an amateur photographer. Give me some slack. What I lack in focus, style, and composition, I make up for in baking delicious muffins (people who make fun of my photos don`t get muffins!!)
Please note that these photographs were taken by LMH for the CSDI and cannot be reproduced in any form or by any means without written permission from myself or UBC’s Centre for the Study of Democratic Institutions (Canadian copyright laws kick in when the image is created… so there!).
