Another post? Yes! One might say that my New Years resolution might be to post more frequently. Whatever the case may be, here is more of my personal work!
The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise just had a Staff Gala on January 6th. Free food, alcohol, staff all dressed up nice at an amazing hotel is just the recipe you need for fun yet classy photos. These were all shot with a Nikon D800 and my used-way-too-often 14-70mm f/2.8 Nikkor lens. However, some of these shots were taken by a 50mm f/1.8D Nikon lens.
This is a shot of a few banquet staff doing some last minute touches an hour before dinner started. What a place to eat for free... if you're staff!
The AV crew doing their final checks as well and having a few laughs. Not a bad place to work at all...
Here's a panorama of the banquet hall taken from the stage. With a D800, this 35MB jpeg took a while for my laptop to produce from my raw files, but you can basically zoom in and see what's happening out the doors. So worth it (at least that's what I tell myself).
Here's a photo with the banquet hall filled with staff and their friends and family.
And of course, the free food was amazing! Finally get to taste what hotel guests get to experience during their stay here.
Obviously the night cannot be devoid of selfies. With everyone else taking some, I thought I'd join in as well.
After dinner is when the party really starts. With a room full of hard-working staff dancing is definitely the best to do to shake off the stress! Hope they do the Macarena!
Oh yes they do!
And of course, I must mention this special girl. Maya, whom you've seen in my past post, was the star of the night. She danced with all the adults, even went up on stage to dance! She told her mom that she "felt like a famous person" here... and like a true celebrity she enjoyed the attention.
Hope you all enjoyed the post! I will try to post more often so check back when you can!
Thanks for reading,
