Scandinavian Business Club Dinner

10 Jan

Date: Wednesday, January 10, 2018 – 6 pm to 9 pm

Photographing Formula 1 and other stories from the career and life of Allan de la Plante

An award winning and highly acclaimed photographer, author, publisher, keynote speaker and artist!


Allan has won many accolades for his photography of people of action. He began shooting hard core sports in the early Seventies, following the F1 Grand Prix circuit and the Canadian downhill ski racers known around the world as the Crazy Canucks. In 1974, he covered the Russia-Canada hockey series for the National Sport and Recreation Center. Between 1974 and 1976, commissioned by the Bank of Montreal, he created the first Canadian Gallery of Athletes. In 1976 he was the Official Photographer at the Montreal Olympic Games.

In 1997, Canada Post unveiled two stamps on Gilles Villeneuve, based on de la Plante’s photographs. It was the ultimate recognition of de la Plante’s work and Villeneuve’s racing life.

He has published books on topics ranging from Pope John Paul II to firefighters to Gas B-B-Que cooking. Perhaps his crown jewel though is the masterfully written, brutally honest book about his good friend from rural Quebec who set the world on fire behind the wheel of a Ferrari.
