Canada’s Golden Hour Project

 

CICERO_TONY_TORONTOs

On June 4th 2016, I took part in Canada’s Golden Hour Project.  Along with over 100 photographers across Canada, the task was to photograph Canada’s beauty at the magic hour of sunrise or sunset.  I managed to get this shot just as the sun was setting.

100cameras Feature

 

I would like to extend my thanks to 100cameras.org for the feature they did on me this month.  It is such a great charity that I feel strongly about and it inspires me that I can make a difference in people’s lives through my photography.  You can view the feature here: http://100cameras.org/news/2016/3/20/100.

Eric McCormick Sings for Rethink Breast Cancer

Last month I photographed a fundraiser put on by Rethink Breast Cancer which featured Toronto native Eric McCormack, star of Will & Grace and Perception.  The Concert I Never Gave held at the Winter Garden Theatre, featured a selection of his favourite songs, featuring B-sides and stories from his time growing up in Toronto through his years in Hollywood.  His band was a stellar lineup of musical veterans lead by musical director Loren Gold, keyboardist for The Who, Tyler Stewart, drummer for the Barenaked Ladies, Murray Foster, bass player for Great Big Sea, along with Alex McMaster and Neil Chapman.  The event was a great success as it raised $40,000 for such a worthy cause.

Transformations Through the Lens

 

With the New Year comes transformation.  After months of work, I have finished completely rebuilding my website.  With some new galleries it is now fully integrated with a purchasing option for my images in various papers, sizes and mounting formats.  To celebrate this I am offering a gift to the first eight people who sign up an account and try it out.  They will be entitled to a free 5×7 print of their choice.  Also, with any other purchase I will be donating a portion of the proceeds between these two personally meaningful charities.  The first being the ART for Cancer Foundation.  This non-profit charitable organization is committed to improving the quality of life of people living with cancer by providing an outlet for creative expression through the arts.  The other is 100cameras.org.  This charity teaches kids to share their perspectives through photography and then turns their stories into sellable products that directly fund medical, educational, and lifeline supplies for their communities.  For the free print offer enter code FIRSTEIGHT when checking out.

One other transformation was that of a school computer lab/library into my own mini gallery.  This past December I completed the installation of some more photographs that were purchased by William Lyon Mackenzie Collegiate Institute.  I installed three photos earlier in June and have completed the room with four more images.  There is something satisfying about having my work in a public space for many years to come.  Thanks again to all the staff and students at William Lyon Mackenzie Collegiate Institute for their support.
