Since 2011, I have worked on a freelance basis for the Vancouver Book & Magazine Fair Society and have been the Secretary on the board of directors since 2014. Word Vancouver is Western Canada’s largest free celebration of literacy and reading.
Since 2012, I have been the primary photographer for the main event on Sunday at Library Square—a full day of readings, workshops, exhibitors, and performances. I spend the entire day roaming the site to capture candid and posed moments with families, attendees, and authors.
