The other night I went to see Begonia and Royal Canoe live at a bar here in Toronto. The show was amazing and I definitely recommend giving those bands a listen if you haven't already heard them. After seeing these guys play I remembered a video I shot/edited of Begonia for Fresh FM and Global News a few years back. It was supposed to be a kicker at the end of the Morning Show, but due to breaking news and a miscalculation of time by the producer (live TV, amirite?) approximately only five seconds of the video aired. I mean, this was a pretty quick and dirty production (set up, shoot, ingest at the end of one of my shifts, and then edited at the beginning of my next shift to have it air during the show that morning) but despite it having a fast turn around time it is still a shame to put work into something that never sees the light of day. Well today I'm changing that because I found a cut of it saved deep inside one of my hard drives. Here is Begonia performing Juniper. I hope you enjoy this throwback.
As you may or may not know I'm a photog at Global News Winnipeg... well, I WAS a photog at Global News Winnipeg. It is by far one of the coolest jobs ever. It was a pretty incredible opportunity to showcase stories on interesting people and events around the city and province. You never knew what you were getting into each week, and that was something I just loved about the job. To give you an idea of how diverse the weekly shoots were here is a little montage I put together of a few shots from my last 5 days at work. Hanging with polar bears, going to car shows and learning about what goes into being a wine sommelier are a few examples. I'm sad to say goodbye, but excited for new adventures on the horizon. Stay tuned to see what is coming!
