I was the official photographer for the 29th annual Lieutenant Governor’s BC Book Prizes Gala on May 4, 2013 at Government House in Victoria, BC.

The Lieutenant Governor’s BC Book Prizes Gala is a celebration of finalist authors, illustrators and publishers. The winners for the 2013 prizes were awarded as well as the recipients of the tenth annual Lieutenant Governor’s Award for Literary Excellence, Lorna Crozier and Sarah Ellis. CBC Radio personality Grant Lawrence hosted the evening’s festivities.

I have been the official event photographer for the annual Lieutenant Governor’s BC Book Prize Gala and Finalist Soirée for a number of years. During the events I roaming the venue to capture candid and posed moments with finalists, publishers, and attendees. At the Gala, I also photograph each award presentation and observe proper protocols with the Lieutenant Governor of BC in attendance.
