Toronto Photo Walk – Part 1

Back in mid-December, I took a vacation day from work and spent the day shooting in downtown Toronto with my good friend Paul. We spent the morning shooting in and around Kensington Market (photos in a later post), before grabbing lunch and heading down to Harbourfront. We even used the new tunnel over to the…

Birthday Party

It must really suck having a birthday so close to Christmas… especially as a kid. Not because people we trying to combine presents, but because of peoples busy schedules.

Double Exposure Challenge

This project is something I’ve heard about before and have wanted to try out for some time. I approached my good friend Paul and asked if he’d be interested in doing a double exposure challenge.
