VANDOCUMENT is a team of passionate photographers, videographers, and writers.
We provide full service documentation to support, promote, and tell the stories of Vancouver’s movers & shakers through photos, videos, and articles.
By creating timeless, priceless event documentation of talks, launches, openings, festivals, and anything that contributes to the heart and soul of Vancouver, we are celebrating and strengthening our city!
VANDOCUMENT’s focus is on our city’s artists, galleries, centres, and festivals because that is where our hearts beat and souls breathe.
We also work for other organizations and companies, even if they are not directly arts-connected, as long as they are ecologically friendly and sustainable, and gender and culture inclusive.
- SUPPORT creators, orgs, and small businesses by providing limitlessly useful media assets for social media/promotion, advertisement, grant proposals, etc
- ENGAGE the larger population by showing the huge range of happenings, events, and launches that are happening at places that might otherwise go unknown, created by artists & entrepreneurs that might, too, go unknown
- CHANGE stereotypes about art and show that it isn’t an exclusive thing; that it is actually one of the most basic, beautiful, and rewarding aspects of life.
