SBC x FlyGTA

It seems like forever since I've done a blog post, well because it has!

It's been a super busy end of the summer filled with shoots and such. I recently had the opportunity to work with a new airline flying out of Billy Bishop Airport. Greater Toronto Airways is a new company gearing towards adventure flying around the city. They contacted me to get some promo ariel shots, I couldn't say no!

Arriving at the airport, I had met up with the guys at GTA and within minutes we were getting clearance for takeoff! My ride for the day was a small plane, I believe for flight instructions. I had a small window to shoot out of, barely big enough to fit my lens through, but it worked great!

As you can see I had all the controls infront of me, and to be perfectly honest it scared the shit out of me! 

Our main focus was to orbit around the CN tower, getting as low as possible (which I believe the lowest clearence was 1700 ft above ground)

Here are some of my favourite shots!

Caution!

On my most recent adventure once again to the roofs, and I can honestly say as I am writing this my legs are feeling very weak. Another climb of a 60+ floor building can really make you question your body shape. The climbs are always painful, but the views are always rewarding enough for me to keep climbing.

This mini series is a combination of 2 buildings, kind of in the same area but with different architecture. 

Construction sites can sometimes be a challenge to shoot due to a lot of safety fences blocking your view, but what I see is a playground waiting to be discovered.

This concludes the mini series! Wish I could share more info hehe.

A visit to the Art Gallery of Ontario

Living in Toronto, one place I have never been to but have always wanted to was the AGO (Art Gallery of Ontario) The thing that has always intrigued me was the architecture. Although I have never really been into paintings and such, I have always respected art in any form.

One of my favourite displays was this beautiful room with several paintings. This shot was taken on a overhead lookout of the room. Thought it created a different perspective. 

I couldn't help but notice of how every person in the gallery looks at each piece differently. It is very interesting to see. If you haven't visited the AGO, I highly recommend it!


Stay tuned for more!
