On November 18, 2010 I had the privilege of photographing the Land Awards Gala Dinner hosted by the Real Estate Foundation of British Columbia
. It was a stellar event celebrating the merits of ‘forward-thinking people and organizations – leaders in creating sustainable communities and making B.C. a better place to live. Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
, one of Time magazine's 'Heroes for the Planet and co-author of The Riverkeepers
, presented the keynote address at the awards, making it an extra special event for fans and environmentalists alike. Several of the guests and awards' recipients had the honour of having their portraits taken with Mr. Kennedy which I had the pleasure of taking.
Myself and co-photographer Brian Noppe
seamlessly captured the essence of the evening and gratefully, the foundation's uber talented organizer of the entire gala event, Leta Smith, expressed her thanks in a recent testimonial - 'With her [Linda's] creative eye and dedication to covering all angles and facets of an event, the black tie 2010 Land Awards can now be remembered through her photography. The quality and assortment of photos are of the highest quality (which we are also using for web and promotional use), as was the experience working with Linda Mackie Photography.'
