Organizer of Wikipédia Takes Montreal


My user name is Benoit Rochon and I am from Quebec, Canada. I am a member of the Board of Wikimedia Canada and I have participated in Wikimedia projects since 2003. I am an amateur photographer and I upload my work often under a free license on Commons. I also have several friends who do photography so I also upload their works here, with their permission of course!

In August 2011, I organized the photo scavenger hunt "Wikipedia Takes Montreal" which aims to upload more photos about Montreal, and in 2012, the Canadian version of "Wiki Loves Monuments Canada".

I use two types of equipment to do photography. First of all, my iPhone 4 when I do not have my camera with me. Otherwise, I prefer a digital camera Nikon D3100 14.0MP DSLR Camera with AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm VR Lens Kit... A beautiful unpretentious lil' baby!
