Remembering Guy Lafleur | Montreal Event Photographer

There are many times where I have to step back and need to take in the moments my career has allowed me to be part of. Being one of the photographers on site to document the events surrounding the celebration of the great Guy Lafleur for the Habs was just that. I met Guy Lafleur… Continue reading Remembering Guy Lafleur | Montreal Event Photographer

Imagine Dragons | Bell Centre | Montreal Concert Photographer

Probably one of the more entertaining pop rock bands to see live are Imagine Dragons. While around since 2008 or so, they really started to make waves in 2012 and other than appearing at Osheaga in 2013, they have only played arenas here since. Gives you a good indication to Imagine Dragons popularity in town,… Continue reading Imagine Dragons | Bell Centre | Montreal Concert Photographer

Mika | Centre Bell | Montreal Concert Photographer

A little over 2 years is what it took for Mika to finally entertain Montreal. After an appearance on Star Academie, the ultra energetic singer was all smiles on stage at the Bell Centre. The crowd, who brought flowers for Mika, were just as enthousiastic to hear his hits like Grace Kelly and Big Girl… Continue reading Mika | Centre Bell | Montreal Concert Photographer

Wine masterclass @ the Ritz | Montreal Event Photographer

What a great opportunity to be asked to photograph a wine masterclass given by two of the big names in the wine industry: renowned wine maker Gérard Bertrand and world’s top sommelier Andreas Larsson. No wonder 150 people filled the main ballroom at the Ritz Carlton in Montréal for the almost 2 hours of tasting… Continue reading Wine masterclass @ the Ritz | Montreal Event Photographer

Salon du livre de Montréal | Montreal event photographer

Between lockdown x and sanitary measures y, there were a few months in late 2021 where business started to pick up, where things started to feel almost “normal”. I had photographed Osheaga and IleSoniq (slimmed down versions), a few portraits, old clients came back and new clients called. One of the nicer surprises was signing… Continue reading Salon du livre de Montréal | Montreal event photographer

Ilesoniq Redux 2021

Not sure how to put into words the feeling of being at one of our major outdoor festivals again. It has been a little over 2 years for me. The last outdoor festival I worked at was Ilesoniq back in August 2019. Ilesoniq Redux, a slimmed down version where concert go-ers are set in 500… Continue reading Ilesoniq Redux 2021

Surviving COVID 19 isolation as a freelancer

Another COVID 19 related blog post. Seems that everyone is talking about it, 24/7 on the news, neighbors, online, socials… it’s everywhere. I thought I would add to the noise and talk about how it is impacting the world of a freelancer who works mainly in event photography. Because really, I don’t feel like watching… Continue reading Surviving COVID 19 isolation as a freelancer

How to quickly add dozens of hashtags in your socials

Tired of always putting in the same hashtags to get some sort of pretend social traction? For a few years, I’ve been using a super easy shortcut on my iphone. I was chatting with random people while working yesterday and we came upon the subject of using hashtags and figured I’d create a new tip… Continue reading How to quickly add dozens of hashtags in your socials

Post Malone | Montreal Concert Photographer | Pierre B Photo

How do you classify an artist such as who has a stage name that was created with an online rap name generator? To say that Austin Richard Post (aka Post Malone) is a rapper isn’t enough. Posty kind of melds hip hop with country with rock and throws in a bunch of tracks while singing.… Continue reading Post Malone | Montreal Concert Photographer | Pierre B Photo

My summers are packed with the… Continue reading Best of 2019 concert photos

Gowan | Corona Theatre | Montreal Concert Photographer

A classic in the Canadian rock world for the last 40 years… Lawrence Gowan, known on stage as just Gowan, can still pack a venue, as was the case with the Corona Theatre. The venue had chairs all around, but by the end of the first set, the crowd was all standing. It was for… Continue reading Gowan | Corona Theatre | Montreal Concert Photographer

Jonas Brothers | Bell Centre | Montreal Concert Photographer

After a little over 6 years of being officially split, the Jonas Brothers finally decided to tour together once again. The once Disney stars from the mid 2000s had some individual solo efforts over the years, but judging by the loud screams at Montreal’s Bell Centre, the fans were just a wee bit happy to… Continue reading Jonas Brothers | Bell Centre | Montreal Concert Photographer

The Offspring + Sum 41 | Place Bell | Montreal Concert Photographer

Place Bell in Laval had an amazing double bill for punk rock fans last night. Legends The Offspring, along with Canadian punk rockers Sum 41, took to the stage in front of a packed arena. Presentement by local summer punk festival 77 Montreal, the evening started at an early 7pm with English punkers Dinosaur Pile-Up… Continue reading The Offspring + Sum 41 | Place Bell | Montreal Concert Photographer

Moist | Corona Theatre | Montreal Concert Photographer

It has been 25 years since Canadian rockers Moist released their multi platinum album Silver. I was 18 at the time, right smack in my first concert going phase of my life. I remember seeing them at Montreal’s Spectrum for the first time and their stage energy blew me away. I believe I have totalled… Continue reading Moist | Corona Theatre | Montreal Concert Photographer

50 photos for 50 years of rock and roll at CHOM FM

Never would teenage Pierre imagine that he would be part of the extended family of the radio station he listened to every day (and called in to contests way too often). CHOM 97.7 is celebrating 50 years today. 50 years of rock and roll in Montreal. Randy Bachman was the first even artist I covered… Continue reading 50 photos for 50 years of rock and roll at CHOM FM

The Chainsmokers | Bell Centre | Montreal Concert Photographer

The pop EDM duo The Chainsmokers seem to come to the city at least once a year, and each and every time, the place is turned into a party. From headlining IleSoniq last year, a sold out show in 2017, The Chainsmokers were back at the Bell Centre for their World War Joy tour. The… Continue reading The Chainsmokers | Bell Centre | Montreal Concert Photographer

J Balvin | Place Bell | Montreal Concert Photographer

The hugely popular Colombian reggaeton singer J Balvin made his way to Laval’s Place Bell and played in front of a packed house. While J Balvin had to step out of this year’s Osheaga lineup, he more than made up for it bringing his colourful stage (and fashion sense) to the city. Our restrictions were… Continue reading J Balvin | Place Bell | Montreal Concert Photographer
