CDS General Rick Hillier leaves the stage after giving the closing address at the NOIA conference in St. John's yesterday. This may be Hillier's last public appearance as the head of the Canadian Armed Forces and, as usual, it was a barn burner. it's doesn't take more than five minutes with him to realize why he commands so much respect from his troops.
The NOIA conference was a great chance to do some “on the run” portraits. When you can't pose your subject or set up lights you are always looking for a pause in the action …and in the right light! to capture something worthy and unique. This is very much the style of the “editorial” portrait. More to come!
