Downtown Brockville Blog

Introducing Our Newest Team Member

 

 

We're very excited to have a new downtown Brockville team member- Chris Hebert! Hired as our 2018 photographer, we wanted to learn a bit about who will be capturing us mid-bite or jumping on the bouncy castle during this year's festivals!   

 

 

 

While completing his Media Arts diploma in 2012, Chris found himself one credit short from graduating. With black and white photography the only class that fit his schedule, he was in for life altering events!

Taking colour out of photos means you have to shift focus to other points like texture or buildings.

Brockville, filled with textures and buildings, was the Holy Grail for Chris' final project!

One visit later Chris fell in love and was eager to learn more about our city. 

It turns out that he has strong roots within the Leeds and Grenville region. His loyalist ancestors settled in South Augusta in 1784. During the war of 1812, Sir Isaac Brock plus a group of soldiers even spent the night in his ancestors' basement!  His 5x great grandmother's cousin founded the village of Landsdowne and is the namesake of the Landon Bay Nature Park.

Currently, Chris is living in Quebec after completing a second diploma in professional photography from Concordia University.

Embracing the warm weather and festivals, you can catch him in Brockville majority of the weekends during the summer.

Check out some of his best shots in this year’s tourism guide or from past RHB festival albums! You can also check him out on Instagram for unique views of our downtown @dominionphoto182
