The other week I had another opportunity to shoot for the fantastic organisation, Free The Children. This time, I was asked to shoot at We Day in Waterloo Region; the goal of the event was to “inspire students and educators from the Waterloo Region and surrounding areas, addressing some of the world‘s most critical problems and teaching them they have the power to be part of the solution.”

I was assigned to be co-founder Craig Kielburger’s photographer for the day; I followed him around photographing him with many of the We Day speakers and performers, including Al Gore, former U.S. Vice-President, author and Nobel Laureate, Reverend Jesse L. Jackson Sr., civil rights leader and politician, the Barenaked Ladies, Stereos, Shawn Desman, several cast members from Degrassi, and many others. It was a non-stop day of meet-and-greets, press conferences, interviews, and of course motivating and inspiring the students!
