Dina’s Picks for Favourite Photos of 2017

by

This year was a whirlwind of festivals and club shows, both close to home and in cities afar. I was fortunate enough to be able to photograph the final live show at an Ottawa institution, take candid photos of an incredibly personable band during an interview, and had the privilege to return for a second year to photograph a pair of recognized and respected international music festivals as approved media.

Choosing favourite photos is always a challenge as my taste will waiver on a whim, but below you’ll find a melange of 20-something images that spark fond memories. A few are from gritty bars while many come from outdoor events hosting thousands to tens of thousands of concert goers. Linger a few minutes and take a a peek through my lens.

The images were taken at Barrymore’s Music Hall, Beau’s OktoberfestDragon Boat Festival, Lee’s Palace, Metropolis (now MTELUS), Osheaga Music & Arts Festival, National Arts Centre, Newport Folk Festival, and Zaphod Beeblebrox (now The Twenty Seven Club) .
