The following photo essay was contributed by Vancouver photographer Dave Roels (www.daveroels.com).
It never occurred to me that an artist and art gallery would be a part of Behind the Scenes in Tourism until I met Jamie Evrard. Arts Umbrella asked me to stop by Jamie’s home studio and take a few photographs of her. After the portrait session Jamie told me I could come back any time I wanted.
These photographs are an example of a fun time shooting Jamie as she worked away, totally ignoring me. A good thing, too, otherwise she might have painted me and not the flowers.
