A trip to London, Ontario

On Saturday, July 15th me and my Friend Lloyd got an invite to attend an Instameet in London, Ontario The meet was hosted by some local photographers that call the city home. Being from Toronto we saw this as a great opportunity to go and network and get a taste of what the London photography scene was like. To say the least, the hosts did not disappoint and we met lots of new Models and photographers and got to explore the local downtown area after shooting in the studio where the event was hosted. 

Below you will see the photos from that day... Enjoy

A short trip to Montreal, Quebec

July 22, 2017

On Saturday July 22nd I took a short trip to Montreal, Quebec to meet with a client to go over some ideas for a photoshoot, I got to Montreal at around pm to arrive on the train to downtown to meet with my client. Rather than go right back home I decided to go out on to the streets and spend the rest of my day shooting the new Ferris wheel added to the city's skyline this summer at the old port. After shooting the vibrant colors at the port I made my way over to Chinatown to shoot some street photography and explore Montreal in a few key locations which are listed below. Enjoy the set from my short trip 

Locations: Montreal, Quebec

- Chinatown

-Old Port of Montreal

- Ottawa gay village, St. Catherines street
