Here are some shots from the opening reception for the North Face Kanazawa store. DJ Nori was there to select the music, Hikari set of the sound system nicely, the food was brought in from Tokyo including an incredible Parma ham from Italy! Very nice evening indeed. In total 4 hours of snacks shopping and conversation, my feet and back were tired before I even started work taking pictures of the store! The photos of the store are in the post below. We always have to wait until after the reception is over and the staff can put the store back together. The includes cleaning up, moving furniture, displays, lighting etc., It usually takes about an hour to two hours just to get the store back to a state where I can take shots. Then the staff has to leave the store for about 30 minutes while I shoot, they don’t minds as that is when they finally get to eat some of the left over catering! Thanks to the staff for a nice evening.
