Ben Pickering | CEO of Strutta | Dundarave Beach | West Vancouver Portrait Photographer

I had the pleasure of meeting Ben over drinks with my friends Maura and Dan, who also happen to be the founders of Strutta and Bootup Labs.   Ben had just moved to Vancouver from California as the new CEO of Strutta and we had talked about photography a bit, but since it’s wedding season for me, I kinda dropped the ball on setting up a photography session with him … until he reminded me at Launch Party …  We finally got together for this shoot at Dundarave Beach in West Vancouver where the weather was absolutely perfect and despite almost being hit by a train … I think Ben knocked this shoot out of the park!    Thanks Ben for being so easy to photograph and good luck at Strutta, it’s a great bunch!
