Trade shows go on through out the year in many venues and can have a great reach depending on the markets it’s for. Public Trade Shows need to have a great variety of products and services so that the public feels its worth their time and effort to go.
This past October I went to the Calgary Baby & Tot show to film the show and get vendor and client testimonials. Jennifer James puts on a fantastic show and has a great selection of vendors that come year after year. The BMO centre is the mecca of public trade shows and hosts a variety of them in many categories.
Here is a great example of a vendor talking about why the trade show is a good one for them and why they choose to come and also sponsor the show. More trade shows need to look at this as part of their marketing campaign to both sides vendors and public. It can be short and sweet , but needs to clearly get the message out that this is a show you need to participate in or go to. Nothing beats a video with a vendor to sell the show to others.
Hopefully many more Trade shows will give us a call to do the same for them 🙂
Simply Elegant Events & Catering was doing a launch of Shagannapi GM new showroom in Calgary and asked me to come and film the event. The decor , Live statues, food, drink and entertainment was excellent. Everyone had a great time and it shows in the video.
More companies like Simply Elegant need to have me come to capture their event and show what they do for their clients. It’s a worthwhile investment.
Here is the video we produced.
This was a shoot at the Hotel Art’s this time with a couple. Played with using a soft continous light to natural light from the windows. We all had a good time trying to get a couple of good shots and experimenting with it.
For the past few years I have been fortunate to work with the team at Ski Banff Lake Louise Sunshine on a few projects the main one being Banffsnow.com which has been their monthly intro to the ski resorts in the area.
The beauty of the Canadian Rockies and the resorts make it hard not to get some of the best shots skiing and snowboarding.
Check out some of the segments I’ve had the chance to film.

A little fun with a model doing some bridal shots and couple engagement style shots.
I’ve done a lot of daytime time lapse, but decided to give the night a try. With it being dark out and thinking of timing and all that good stuff , here is what I shot with a Canon 7D and a Sigma 10-20mm lens . I think it’s pretty dramatic .
