Published July 19, 2013 -- While in Switzerland photographing the Vancouver Police Pipe Band's participation in the Basel Tattoo, I pondered different ways to effectively communicate the efforts that go on behind the scenes.

Apart from travel fatigue and adjusting to foreign language/currency/food, the band also has a fair amount of equipment to deal with and an intense rehearsal schedule.

Yesterday, I followed them to Messe Hall 1 where they met with all the other pipe and drum bands for choreography.

They were expertly coached by Stuart Samson on how to create this year's formation.  Watch this 8 second time lapse movie summarizing a 2 hour rehearsal as it really shows how massive the rehearsal space is and how hard they all work to perfect the performance. See if you recognize the shape of this year's formation.  If you are familiar with the branding for the city of Basel you might know it!
