Nino Rakichevich joined the festival for a full day keynote presentation on Sunday. His beautiful images were the inspiring backdrop to his many stories of international photographic adventures, like how he gets behind the scenes at Paris fashion shows.
Once the models Natalia Anja and Sarah Porchetta had finished with hair and make up by Jennifer Arnim-Andres, Nino took attendees out into the streets of New Westminster for a photo shoot/demo. He was originally doing a demo on the meeting room stage but Nino’s change of plan provided a more dramatic backdrop to really showcase his style of shooting. All those who brought their cameras had an opportunity to explore and try things Nino’s way. Watch out for cars!
