After a pandemic hiatus, Riverfest Elora was back to Bissell park for festival number 12. The festival in this quaint Ontario town is made up of three days of art, food trucks, arts and craft vendors, community, and of course, music!

Live music photography allows me to combine two great passions. As a life long music fan and off and on photographer this a great match. From shooting small dark shows that leave me cursing the lack of light but energize me with their intensity, to large venues where larger than life productions entertain and amaze I am a fan of them all. I love living in the small town of Elora and continue to be amazed at the great calibre of musicians that come through this part of Ontario. Hoping to share some of this musical talent through my photography.
