It has been a while since I posted anything. rest assured I am still shooting!
Mercer Street – SoHo, Manhattan
With this year-end post, we approach the end of another decade. I was in New York City this past summer and it was easy to be transported to its former era. Some places seem to stand still in time forever.
Rocco’s Restaurant – Flat Iron District, Manhattan
The Flatiron Building – Flatiron District, Manhattan
Schnippers – Madison Ave & E 23rd Street – Flatiron District, Manhattan
The Stumble Inn – Upper East Side, Manhattan
Forty Floors, Five Hours, One Window
I finished off the fall with some more construction photography for one of my favourite client’s website portfolio. His company installs and repairs windows on hi-rise buildings. This is one job that requires the utmost attention and no fear of heights. The views from these rooftops, rarely seen before, are some of the newest in the city.
The Concourse Building now the Ernst and Young Tower – Toronto
Nuit Blanche Toronto 2019 – PorTALES
Also this fall, I was asked to produce an installation for Forno Cultura’s newest location on Queen Street West in downtown Toronto. So I called upon my artist friends and we created a light and sound installation which was well received by all. PorTALES was an immersive installation that employed coloured lights to engage with the custom designed audio and the audience.
This month I had the wonderful opportunity to volunteer for the Make-A-Wish® Rope for Hope, here in Toronto. This is a unique challenge event that calls on participants to raise pledges in exchange for a once-in-a-lifetime experience to rappel down the edge of a high-profile building. We did it on the east tower of Toronto’s City Hall, a height of 350 feet or 107 metres. All money raised by Make-A-Wish Rope for Hope rappellers goes to granting the wishes of children with critical illnesses in each respective local market. Going over the edge and capturing the participants’ expressions was priceless. I hope the kids get the same expressions of joy from their wishes coming true!
