A behind the scenes look at photo coverage of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in Canada
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were ever so kind to drop into Kelowna as part of their royal tour of British Columbia and the Yukon this week. Here is a behind the scenes report on their visit. This is a bit of a long post, so you may need some time to sit down and read this one.
First I want to mention that I first needed to get accredited, and that is no easy matter. My editor had to fill out a very long and bureaucratic government form, this included a copy of my driver’s license and a letter of assignment from the newspaper that I work for with company letter head, I suggested he write “I hereby assign Gary Nylander, Kelowna Daily Courier staff photographer to photograph the Royal Highness’s, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the 27th day of September, 2016 in Kelowna, B.C.” I’m not sure if that’s what got written but it was a fun suggestion.
Humor: A Letter of Complaint from Her Majesty, The Queen
(Please Note: I can neither confirm nor deny this letter was sent. I personally think the portrait is marvelous, but I’ve been called “Old School,” so what do I know?)
Dear Annie Leibovitz,
I am writing in regards to the most recent photographs taken of me for my 90th birthday. I shan’t delve into all of them, but I feel it only right to make mention of my disappointment in the portrait of myself and the children.
Annie, this is NOTHING like what I emailed you from Pinterest. Furthermore, one is hard pressed to even find stuff like this on Pinterest so I’m not certain as to where you even came up with this idea. (Yes, I did just use the word “stuff.” I realize “stuff” is not befitting of a Queen’s vocabulary, but I am quite miffed and it just slipped out.)
Annie Leibovitz shoots British Royal Family portraits for The Queen’s 90th birthday celebration
Today marks the 90th birthday of Her Royal Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, and to record the occasion, celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz was chosen to create portraits of the Queen and her family.
While Annie is no stranger to photographing The Queen, their last professional interaction didn’t seem to go too well at all, and given their attitude towards some photographers, even if they might deserve it, it seems slightly surprising that Annie would be invited back for such a major event.
