While on assignment for work, I had the opportunity to photograph what would be my first wedding. It was a staged wedding in front of Niagara Falls for the commercial that we were shooting, but these guys were together for almost 8 years and were more in love than most. I’ve travelled to many countries where this scene would have never taken place, so it’s nice to know that Canada (among many others) encourages people to be proud of the love that they share with someone else, regardless of their sex.
I’ve recently returned from almost four weeks on the road photographing the beautiful (and expansive) province of Ontario. I’m now winding down and sifting through the images. The shoot was for Ontario Tourism and along with the stills, they commissioned a video crew to shoot some beautiful b-roll footage as well. This image personally represents that quintessential summer feeling. It’s a cold Toronto morning out, so it’s fitting that this is my first post from what has become a large Ontario series.
For the past week, Torontonians have been finding ways to deal with an intense heat wave. Although it’s started to return to seasonal temperatures, most people are still trying to beat the heat and cool down, any way they can. Yonge-Dundas Square in the core of the city offers some willing people -and their pets- a chance to relive the good ol’ days of care-free sprinkler jumping.
On Monday I had the opportunity to photograph 3 time World Champion in figure skating, Patrick Chan. During a private meet and greet at the top of the CN Tower, Patrick met with Chinese media and a selection of Chinese tourists who won a spot in a national contest to fly into Toronto, Canada and meet the World Champion. Patrick really enjoyed the lower key media event as he has been bombarded with larger scale coverage since his win over the past weekend in London, Ontario.
