Deep Freeze

For the past little while, Niagara Falls has been getting some global attention, more so than usual. The deep freeze over both the Canadian and American Falls (much more dramatic over the American) has made it’s way into news, papers, even Jimmy Fallon took a jab at it the other night on his show…

The following images were taken yesterday afternoon. It’s moments like these that make shooting during a severe cold warning much more bearable.

top chef

Just warmin’ up at a recent shoot with Chef Carl Heinrich (season 2 winner of Top Chef Canada) at his restaurant, Richmond Station.  As is the case with any great restaurant, fresh, local ingredients are used on the regular here. Located just off the corner of Yonge & Richmond, in the heart of downtown Toronto, this is definitely somewhere you will want to eat…trust me.

Fort Henry

On a recent shoot to Kingston, Ontario, I took in the Sunset Ceremony at Fort Henry. The following are images taken within the fort.

Fort Williams, Thunder Bay

Ontario has a rich history, filled with European entrepreneurship and Aboriginal culture.  Fort Williams in Thunder Bay allows you to step back in time and experience a world long forgotten.

winding down

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.

Himalaya

This photo is from a few years back, during some time spent travelling throughout the top of the Himalaya’s in Northern India. Awe-struck for two weeks straight, the natural danger of the road made the views along the way that much more beautiful.  Route 22 will always have a special place in my heart.
