To say what an honor feels like such an understatement, but honestly and truly I was so honored to be asked to photograph the AURP (Association of University Research Parks) Event last week, held at the Parliamentary Dining Room with guest of honor Governor General David Johnston. Not only is it a privilege to be able to photograph the Governor General, but to be allowed into Parliament to do so, made for an even more amazing night.
His Excellency the Right Honorable David Johnston is Canada’s 28th Governor General of Canada and has held that position since October of 2011. He is our representative to Queen Elizabeth II. What an amazing Gentleman, I couldn’t be prouder to say he is our Governor General.
A Rare opportunity to photograph the Parliamentary Dining Room empty. Once the MP’s come in for dinner no photographs are allowed. We were in a separate room, just off the main hallway.

Such a wonderful evening, thanks again to Carol Stewart and the AURP for allowing me this wonderful opportunity.
