Scandinavian Business Club Dinner

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.

Guests are always wel­come! Invite col­leagues, clients, friends and fam­i­ly.
