One of my last shoots of the summer was with the talented young harpist, Sarah Veber from St Philip’s, Newfoundland. She studies music in Ottawa but will be returning to St John’s to play with the Newfoundland Symphony Orchestra for selected concerts this season beginning with the Nov 11 performance of Mozart’s Requiem at the NSO MASTERWORKS 2; HONOUR. REFLECT. REMEMBER at the historic Basilica of Saint John The Baptist. We photographed her in a meadow in her home town overlooking Conception Bay, Newfoundland.

Finally catching up in this summer’s work. Check out our photo gallery from this year’s Sound Symposium XVIII, international festival of new music and sound art. A wonderful 10 day adventure in music, performance, sound art and acoustic wonders and aural delights! I got invited to shoot Sound Symposium in 1992 and I’ve been doing it ever since.

It’s not hard to forget that his stage, screen and theatre career was made in Toronto, Stratford and Los Angeles. The who’s who of the Newfoundland political, business and arts community all jostle to shake his hand as the stage crew tries to clear the stage.

I actually had a hard time getting this photo shot as people would wander into the frame to greet Pinsent blithely ignorant of the camera and lights.
