Cranes and Sunsets

These past few weeks have been pretty insane to say the least. Recently moving into Toronto has given me more reasoning to get out there and shoot. On my latest adventure with one of my good friends Zach Bird  , we brought along with us Toronto Model/Photographer  Danya Maclean.  I always enjoy shooting with new people, and this was no different. 

We decided to hit up one of our favourite spots to catch the sunset, and it did not disappoint. 

We arrived to our spot around 7:45 pm. We aimed to get there for this time so we could capture the golden hour, as well as the sunset. The Golden hour creates very nice light and shadows for portraits, Zach took full advantage of the opportunity.

After shooting from the roof, we wanted to get just a tad higher. We then went up the crane. Where some of my favourite shots from the day were taken.

Big ups to Danya for climbing up the ladder! After this shot I noticed the cotton candy skies coming in, I was just a tad excited!

Hope you enjoyed this series! With the summer just getting into gear, expect many more to come.

SBC x Shangri-La Toronto

What I love most about being a photographer is the collaborative nature of the industry. This week I had the chance to work with a trifecta of super creative peeps. Neil Wong of Thank You Toronto, Melissa of Best Vacations and the hospitable staff at Shangri-La ( Toronto's premiere Hotel) 

We had the opportunity to have a photoshoot on the roof of Shangri-La for Canada Goose, as well as a photoshoot in the Garden Suite with model Melody Ichimura, showcasing some of her best Yoga poses for LuLu Lemon.

The day began with a brief meeting around noon. Here we all signed our waiver forms to access the roof. As you can see here, the view is absolutely beautiful.

Although we were only aloud to be in a certain distance of the edge, it was still a once in a lifetime opportunity.

With the weather being in doubt all week, our rooftop fun was cut short due to snow, yes SNOW! After the rooftop shoot, we headed down to the 6th floor to Shangri-La's beautiful garden suite!

This wrapped up our shoots! We ended the day with a delicious lunch at Shangri-La. This was really a great experience. Big props to Thank You Toronto for the opportunity! 

If you're visiting Toronto and want to get the full experience, Shangri-La is a must! Beautiful hotel with even better people.

Stay tuned for more!
