Here are some of the highlights of my day of photographing Craig Kielburger at WE DAY and at the events the night before.
As I wrote in my post yesterday, I was impressed with Craig. A couple of the things that struck me about him were how he always took the time to pose with people or shake their hands. It didn’t matter if the people were Martin Sheen or someone he didn’t know. He was the same friendly person. The other thing that struck me is this. I had previously only seen his onstage presence which is so full of energy and excitement and I was struck by how calm he was off stage. My impression of Craig Keilburger was of a deeply committed young man who is now in charge of a very large and very successful charity. I think Craig and his brother may just be what our troubled world needed.
Thank you to both of them for inspiring our youth and ourselves to do better.
To say this day was a high for me is putting it mildly!

WE DAY 2013!
This one of Martin Sheen was taken at the gala dinner the evening before at the Radison Hotel.
An amazing speaker for a 10 year old but also a smile that lit up rooms!
Craig’s willingness to engage with kids and adults was alway apparent.
Is this the singer from Neverest giving the personal assistant to Craig a massage? Her job is no easy task. She has to get Craig to where he is going on time.
These were taken at the press conference where Martin Sheen’s sense of humor was enjoyed by all!
The arrival of former president of Mexico and his very lovely wife.
More of the show.
Love the visuals in this display! WOW!
WE DAY 2013!
And that of course, is me onstage! With no audience of course!
My apologies on these being in the wrong order. It’s late at night and I am tired and was having trouble figuring out why the order is mixed up.
These next images were taken at the dinner the night before. First is Martin Luther King Jr.
