I’ve been working at the Whistler Question newspaper for the last few weeks. It’s been a lot of fun, as my roots are in photojournalism, and I actually started as a Question photographer back in the 80’s. It’s a nice break from the weddings and commercial photographer that’s been my lot for the last few years.
These are a few shots from the Sarah Burke Memorial on Tuesday night. There’s been a lot of local residents who have been killed or injured this year. It’s a lot for such a small town, and I think as a community we really needed it.
Sometimes you get shoot sports events. Being in Whistler, it’s better if you do them in the middle of the night in a rainstorm. Kerr McEwen rides in the final event of the Whistler-Blackcomb King of the Rail competition beside the GLC.
