Usually the chances of meeting a celebrity are about as good as finding a needle in a haystack, but things were about to change for some lucky fans at this year’s Juno Fan Fare!

And lucky me, the barer of an all access pass, I was able to get lens-to-face and got some pretty great shots!

I was impressed with the well oiled machine which had fans shuttled through fenced corrals, allowing them to get up-close and personal with the artists.

The two 1 hour meets seemed to end just as quickly as they started… And the delighted fans and I left happy!
