Featured photographers and charities include:
Clare Hodgetts – Vancouver Island’s amazing shorelines and emerging surf culture feature prominently in Clare’s collection. It’s no wonder that she’s teamed up with Vancouver’s own chapter of the Surfrider Foundation for this one night only event.
Chris Collacott – British Columbia’s stunning landscape jumps into focus on 8 foot metal backdrops as 30 time Epson Award winning photographer Chris Collacott brings you to remote corners of the province.

Owen Perry – Take a trip through the ruggedly beautiful Great Bear Rainforest, through Whistler’s Rocky Mountain terrain, and rest peacefully along the Pacific Northwest coast as you explore the works of Owen Perry – AKA Circa 1983. His passion for the outdoors and its wild inhabitants echoes the work of Ian McAllister and creates a great synergy with conservation protection group Pacific Wild.
Dee Lippingwell – Vancouver born award winning artist Dee Lippingwell, often recognized as Canada’s most accomplished music photographer, shows how she’s earned that reputation by sharing with us her hand selected images of rock and roll icons she has photographed over the past 4 decades. Directions Youth Services is the perfect charity partner for Dee having set their sights on ending youth homelessness in part via their unique music recording studio focused intake center.
A note from the creator and organizer, Kemp Edwards:
“Ethical Profiling has been designing, producing and supplying innovative, socially and environmentally conscious products to the corporate and retail sector for years. Through the strong partnerships we've developed with our clients, manufacturing partners, and the numerous charities and non profit organizations, we've developed a new methodology for "giving back" that plays to our strengths. By designing and developing unique ethical products and selling them in ways that really engage the public, we exponentially grow our ability to give. In Focus Vancouver 2015 is about connecting people to their communities”.
