Just Off The Press: A visit to A La Fut Microbrewery in Ste-Tite for Beer Advocate Magazine
What I love about working with magazines is that they allow me to discover places I didn’t know about and meet men and women I wouldn’t have met otherwise. When Beer Advocate magazine contacted me for a new assignment, I was thrilled as it would allow me to discover a bit more how beer is done and how each brewery makes beer its own.
I love arriving early on assignments, it allows me to take in what I see around me. This time was no exception as I woke up at 4am to make sure I would get a shot of the facade of the historical house that houses the brewery. When I arrived, everything was perfect, except for the -32C temperature (-25F).
Then, I observed how beer was made. The brewery was very small so it was a bit tricky to get interesting angles.
For this type of assignments, I always do my best to get some product shots, detail shots and “in-action” portraits.
After a while, people get comfortable with your presence and then it’s the right time for an environmental portrait.
