The Harvest Picnic took place over the weekend (August 26, 27, 28) and was expanded to three days from the previous year. The list of performers included The Jim Cuddy Band, Alan Doyle & The Beautiful Gypsies, Joel Plaskett Emergency, Rheostatics, Great Lake Swimmers, Cowboy Junkies & many more. The event serves to celebrate the importance of the Greenbelt, local farmers, art, the outdoors and the eat-local movement. Canadian Beats was there for all three days and below are some great photos of the event.

I shoot live music performances and concerts. I love the excitement of entering a venue, knowing that I’ll be photographing a concert and enjoying the energy of the crowd. There’s nothing like being in a venue and looking at the expressions on the faces of people who are all transfixed by the talent onstage. I shoot about 120 shows each year, averaging 2 bands per show, as well as several all-day and weekend festivals in and around Southern Ontario. From the large venues to very small ones, bright lights or barely lit stages, I hope that my photos capture the enjoyment the artists have in doing what they love to do.
