For the Toronto International Film Festival in Toronto, I was hired to take celebrity photos as the talent arrived and left my clients’ establishments. My client owns several buildings and restaurants that were hot spots during TIFF and they wanted to make sure they caught all the amazing people who graced their doorsteps.
Every now and again I take a break from the Toronto interior photographer life and shoot some lifestyle photography for friends and brands. My buddy Tristan Banning over at Sidewalk Hustle wanted some photographs taken of a new OVO hat and OVO jacket and asked if I could shoot them for him.
After shooting the photos with my friend Maria Florescu at the Hot Tub factory, we had talked about doing another shoot. The next time we were both available we met up and wanted to do a Guess or Calvin Klein styled shoot with bright white light and nice shadows.
In March I did a contract with the Ontario Government to help spread awareness about their quit smoking initiatives. As a part of that deal, I took photos of my fitness writers at Toronto Guardian to promote healthy living.
In the last week of March 2017, I dove into a deep opportunity to shoot an editorial photography project at Hydropool Hot Tubs, Swim Spas and Accessories showroom at 345 Superior Blvd in Mississauga, Ontario.
I got hired to shoot the CanTech17 Canadian Tech Conference at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. The main event for the day was a live video chat with Edward Snowden hosted by Bruce Croxon
(dragon’s Den, Lava Life).
I took some portraits of two members of the Toronto Hip Hop group Babylon Warchild.
Cellist Rafael Kuerti (Rumplestiltz) asked me to shoot some images for promotional uses for their upcoming album the War Journals.
I met with him and KDB to take some creatives on a bridge in Toronto.
I took some photos for Hawley Dunbar of Sidewalk Hustle who wanted some photos of her for an Adidas campaign. We went down to the fields at University of Toronto to catch some nice light on a sunny day.
