And did it ever snow…

Trippy

Shot this today outside the Apple Store in Toronto’s Eaton Centre. Played around with the shapes for a while until I came up with this idea. Then I had to wait to get a single person inside the box. In … Continue reading

The Hand

Got in shit from the girl beside me on the bus for taking this shot. She was maybe 21 yrs old and not the subject of this photo. “You should really ask permissions to take people’s photographs, you know.” I … Continue reading

Bad Santa, BAD!

I came across this scene outside The Imperial Pub on Dundas East last night on my way home from shooting the Kensington Market Winter Solstice Parade. Man it was funny. They were having a hoot.

Dave Bottoms’ Guide to Street Photography

My 15 minutes of fame (well, only 5.15 minutes, but you get the point). Here’s a street photography video along with my shooting experience with Fujifilm’s new XPro3. Dale, from Vistek Toronto, shot and produced the piece. I think he … Continue reading

I shot this on Queen St near City Hall late March. If his sign doesn’t encourage people to contribute I don’t know what will. He’s actually an articulate and intelligent gentleman. He doesn’t like using shelters because he’s been robbed … Continue reading
