Reflections on 2019

Image
As a photographer of musicians moving from the Cowichan Valley to Victoria in June of 2019, I was warmly greeted by several companies that host music. They include Beaconridge Productions, The Victoria Jazz Society, and The Victoria Blues Society. I have been privileged to be their photographer for many of their events and have posted galleries on my website at https://www.dodgeandburn.ca/2019/

The last event created by The Victoria Blues Society brought Rick Estrin and the Nightcats to us. This was a stellar band whose music and showmanship elevated the crowd and provided ongoing enjoyment to Blues fans. Here is a link to some of the photos: https://www.dodgeandburn.ca/2019/Nov-16-2019-VBS-Rick-Estrin-and-the-Nightcats/

My goals for next year are to belong to some of the photography teams here in Victoria, BC for music events, specificially MRG Productions and Ska and Reggae Society. I will need to find out who to contact. Relationships are everything and they need to get to know me…

Photographer of Musicians

In 2014 I started taking photographs of musicians performing at the Summertime Blues Festival in Nanaimo, BC.

I returned each year to take more photos. In 2016 I printed some of the photos and showed then to the musicians at the next festival. They were impressed. I received recognition and feedback that helped me build my confidence and motivation to continue.
