I have been slacking a lot on posting about my photography jobs so I thought I would try and get back to it. I think my last post was in May, 2019 and I have done a lot of travelling and working since then that I would like to share.
Instead of going back and covering them all, I am just going to start now and try to cover what I do from here forward. I will also go back and pick some cool things I didn’t post about and share some images.
For Halloween this year, I was hired to photograph opening day of Casa Loma’s haunted house, Legends of Horror, in Toronto. Each year, the Toronto tourist attraction transforms their grounds into one massive, haunted, immersive theatrical experience, with paths running inside and outside that are filled with frights and horrors.
The client wanted me to take photos from the walk through to showcase what visitors can expect.
It took me about 2 hours to go through the run each time, and I went back for a few things that I wanted to shoot more of. The normal run for a guest is around 1 hour.
The job was similar to an event photography shoot but very dark and the use of flash would take away from the ambiance making it quite difficult to get good shots. But when you did, they were spectacular. The team behind the setup did a great job on many of the scenes.
The attraction also has a bunch of actors which was very creepy at times. The girls in the prison and the ghouls in the household were all very scary and had many guests screaming out loud when startled by them. I also love the gremlin type character amidst half eaten bodies by the pond.
The Casa Loma’s Legends of Horror ran this year during the month of October leading up to Halloween.
Be sure to check it out next year!
