As a Toronto real estate photographer and interior photographer I get to see a lot of really cool places in the city. From condos to houses and offices, Toronto has some unique spaces and I love to shoot them.
I do a lot of interior photography for Spaces by Jac Flash, a company run by interior decorator Jaclyn Genovese. She mostly designs apartments, condos and houses but for this job she had worked on an office space.
As usual the place looked amazing and it made my job really easy. The exposed wood flooring, the big bay windows and the custom desks were all very cool. There was even a mini kitchen and living room area.
As an interior photographer, I always want to make sure I capture all the small vignettes within a large room as well as capturing the rooms size and content positions for the full room shots.
There were a lot of really nice decorative additions to the space. An old Toronto street sign, cool light fixtures, a rotary phone, beautiful furniture and a private office with all the trinkets.
The space was located in the downtown core of the city and we spent about 2 hours there capturing all the angles and small details. I mostly shoot wide-angle photographs but I have been using my 50mm more and more for the details and small vignettes.

I try to post my work on my Instagram page as well as I have not been keeping up with my blog posts on here. You will find my most recent work as an interior photographer there.
The 2019 Rugby Football League season has begun which means I am back as the sports photographer for the Toronto Wolfpack Rugby League Team.
For those that are not familiar with the team, this is their third season in the mostly British league, and are currently in the Championship League, hoping for promotion next year to the top tier Super League.
I am excited to be back as the team’s sports photographer for my 3rd year now as well. The team is the first ever transatlantic sports team and it is cool to be a part of that history.
As the only Canadian team in a league of all British teams apart from 2 fFrench teams, Wolfpack sponsors Air Transat is responsible for flying the opposing team as well as our team to Toronto for our home games. The five hour flight is not that big of a deal considering flights from Montreal to LA are similar in hockey.
It was also announced recently that a second Canadian team will join the league based in Ottawa. One of the owners of the Toronto Wolfpack, Eric Perez, has been working on this with plans to join the league in 2020 or 2021. He bought the Hemel Stags and will transfer the team to Ottawa.
As a sports photographer, it will mean that I can travel with the team when they play more games I can easily get to. There are also talks of a Montreal team as well as one in New York City.
If you have not been to a game yet, be sure to check one out! Tickets are not expensive and the atmosphere is great. A lot of people bring families for a day out in the sun.

Blue Goose Pure Foods is a company that distinguishes itself from others by farming premium organic and antibiotic free proteins, proudly raised in Canada. They often hold events around the city to help showcase some of their newest products. At one of their dinners recently, I was brought on as their event photographer and got to see what they are like behind the scenes.
If you don’t know who Jus Reign is, watch one of his YouTube videos. I first saw him, like most people, in his video Bounce where him and another YouTuber Timothy DeLaGhetto face off against each other in a parking lot, slowly entering a dance off move by move as the beat progressives along with their antics. The video is gold and sparked a massive career for the Torontonian. I was recently hired as the interior photographer to shoot his new digs.
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.
I worked again with the fast casual eatery Hopscotch who wanted to do a n outdoors shoot around the downtown core of Toronto. I met up with a couple of their reps who helped out with the shoot by providing me with two models and some helping hands.
I was recently hired by a friend to shoot at Casa Loma in Toronto, the city’s famous castle. My friend’s client was President cheese and they wanted images of their booth setup as well as guests interacting with their product. I don’t do event photography very often but I was available and love the venue.
I recently did a fun Food Photography shoot with Chef Devan Rajkumar for Blue Goose Pure Foods at a kitchen in downtown Toronto. The client wanted photographs of Chef preparing and serving items as well as some styled photos of the finished product.
I shot another nightclub for INK Entertainment after CUBE and REBEL. INK wanted interior photographs of UNIUN Nightclub in downtown Toronto so I accepted and ended up getting some of my favourite interior photographs to date.
