Sportsnet NHL Launch Event

A few weeks ago Rogers and Sportsnet held an event at the Fairmont Chateau Laurier to share the details of their first season as the official broadcaster of all NHL hockey games. In attendance were NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, six-time Stanley Cup winner Mark Messier, Hockey Night in Canada hosts Ron Macleans and George Stroumboulopoulos, and many other Rogers executives. Everyone wanted to talk to Maclean, take a photo with Messier, flirt with Strombo, and give Bettman a piece of their mind!

Supermoon in Ottawa

Editorial photographer Blair Gable photographed July’s super moon rising over the Rideau Canal and saw the photo used in newspaper and websites all over the world. From the Ottawa Sun to Time.com. Occurring when a full moon or new moon coincides with the closest approach the moon makes to the Earth, the Supermoon results in a larger-than-usual appearance of the lunar disk.

Recently, editorial photographer Blair Gable had a project on the new Canadian medical marijuana industry published by Macleans Magazine, Reuters, the Washington Post, and Sun Media outlets. After spending months working on the photo/video story at Tweed in Smiths Falls, here are the results.
