During the Olympics, we were lucky enough to have been contacted by BC Business Magazine Online to do some photography for them. Basically, we took pictures of the city during the mad month of February, and we created slideshows for their site. It was a great project!
From that experience, we developed a nice relationship with their web editor and he contacted us to do a new project under the theme of Innovation in Vancouver. We deduced the topic a little bit and landed on the them of Vancouver’s Social Media Superstars.
At that point, we were more or less given the freedom to compile a list of people who we felt should be in there, and just giver. We had one week to do this, we had no idea if anyone would even want to participate in the project and we more or less had no idea if we would get this done on time.
But, we did! And the responses on the BC Business website have been interesting.
Some have been positive:
“beautiful photos. interesting quotes. cool focus on innovation”
“Kudos to all of you for making it to this list & doing a great work!”
Some have been negative:
“At best Nordica’s work is amateurish”
“Aren’t photographers supposed to help people look a lot better? some of those shots are down right embarrassing.”
Either way, we are quite proud of this project. We didn’t have any help creating the list of contacts and most of the people we had never met. So from that point of view, this project has been totally awesome because we got to meet some incredibly nice and intelligent Vancouverites.
So, thank you again to everyone who agreed to do this! We bugged and nagged you with emails and you gave us your time, and for that we are very appreciative. Hope to bump into you again soon!
Here is a link to the slideshow on BC Business.
