Ghost | Place Bell | Montreal Event Photographer

Swedish band Ghost brought their elaborate and theatrical tour to Laval’s Place Bell last night. Papa and his Nameless Ghouls, as per usual, put on an entertaining set, their Imperatour has been well received. Place Bell was nearly as full as you could have it, and having powerhouse openers like Mastodon and Spiritbox does help.… Continue reading Ghost | Place Bell | Montreal Event Photographer

Corporate BBQ | BDC Terrebonne | Montreal Event Photographer

Working full time in photography, mainly in events, is not all concerts and sports games. There are loads of corporate events that I get to capture as an event photographer. One client that I have had for many years (and for whom I worked with over a decade ago before going full time into photography)… Continue reading Corporate BBQ | BDC Terrebonne | Montreal Event Photographer

My Chemical Romance | Bell Centre | Montreal Concert Photographer

It had been 12 years since My Chemical Romance had taken the stage in Montreal. The highly anticipated reunion tour packed in the Bell Centre. The energy and intensity was as it had been in the band‘s prime. I was pleasantly surprised to see a varied mix of ages in the crowd. Thinking My Chemical… Continue reading My Chemical Romance | Bell Centre | Montreal Concert Photographer

Greta Van Fleet | Bell Center | Montreal Event Photographer

Greta Van Fleet have been tagged with bringing back classic rock and roll. Early comparisons to Led Zepplin were easy, but their sound is growing, a bit more mature, a bit more their own. I was psyched to see them for the first time on stage at Montreal’s Bell Centre. Brothers Josh, Jake and Sam… Continue reading Greta Van Fleet | Bell Center | Montreal Event Photographer

IleSoniq 2022 | Recap | Montreal Event Photographer

Back for its 7th full edition (+1 redux edition last year), Montreal’s Parc Jean-Drapeau EDM festival, IleSoniq, brought in 60,000+ dancing fans over its 3 days. I’ve covered every year of IleSoniq since it began its EDM domination back in 2014. To see how big it has grown is really cool, considering the under 10k… Continue reading IleSoniq 2022 | Recap | Montreal Event Photographer

Sam Adams “Wicked Easy” summer beer launch party | Riverside bar

My life isn’t all music concerts and sports teams. I absolutely love making images during product launch parties. I’ve work with brands such as Nutella, Disaronno, Fiji Water and many more in the past, creating images of the products and people enjoying them. Not too long ago, DDMG PR (who I have been collaborating with… Continue reading Sam Adams “Wicked Easy” summer beer launch party | Riverside bar

Alexisonfire | MTelus | Montreal Concert Photographer

Punk? Hardcore? Post hardcore? I get lost in the labels people assign to music. One thing is for certain, one of the longer lasting and heavier hitting bands, Alexisonfire, still knows how to deliver an intense show, 20+ years after the band first got together. Alexisonfire, or often called AOF, had 2 jammed packed back… Continue reading Alexisonfire | MTelus | Montreal Concert Photographer

Montreal Canadiens meet F1 champ Alonso | Bell Centre | Montreal Event Photographer

I was working a double header for the Montreal Canadiens a few weeks back where I was first capturing images during a custom hat design session with the team at Tricolore Sports, New Era Caps and Josh Anderson, Cole Caufield and Nick Suzuki of the Habs. I mean, I could stop right there and my… Continue reading Montreal Canadiens meet F1 champ Alonso | Bell Centre | Montreal Event Photographer

De retour depuis 2 ans d’absence en présentiel, le premier des gros festivals traditionnels de Montréal a eu lieu il y a quelques semaines. Les Francos de Montréal kicked off summer 2022 in grand style, bringing out the crowds to the Quartier des Spectacles. A great mix of new and more long standing french artistes,… Continue reading Francos de Montréal 2022 | Montreal Concert Photographer

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

Word of mouth is important, and in today’s visually obsessed world of social media, your businesses visual reputation is just as important as its service reputation.

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
