I always enjoy the call from my friend JP who operates Sarafina Pizza. This means we have to photograph some new flavours of gourmet frozen pizzas, which of course is followed by a true taste testing. For the second round of photographs we invited some non-partisan guests to partake in the tasting. The new flavours include Pepperoni and Quattro Formaggi, which are made with a crunchy rice crust; Pizza Funghi is on a multi-grain crust, and the Mediterraneo Veggie Delight is on a wonderful sweet potato crust. Needless to say all these tasted great and will be available in your grocers’ freezer soon.
Last month, I shot this opening sequence for the new music video show on Bravo! called Playlist.
Using the Canon 7D with some nice prime lenses and it’s HD video recording feature achieved this clean cinematic look:
Original music was scored and composed by Ricardo Temporao of The General Staff.
The show features new music videos and interviews with artists. You can see more of this show at http://www.bravo.ca/television/videos/
Have you ever wondered where all the pumpkins go after Halloween? It seems they line up to party with all their friends at the Souraren Park Pumpkin Parade. Locals bring their works of art to the park to show them off for one last time. There are over a thousand of them and some of the carvings are so good you would feel bad about smashing them!
When the end of summer comes in Canada, we tend to fear the fast approaching winter months! We like to stay warm, but still look good. What better way than with a styling coat. This past September I had the opportunity to work with some talented artists on a shoot for the launch of Johnny Yiu outerwear.
Christian Carter helped me with the shooting and the styling was done by Tammy & Karen Lo. Tosca Delfino assisted with the styling which featured some of her swimwear Tosca Delfino Swim. Hair and makeup was done by Talia Reingold and the model was Michelle G. The complete collection can be seen at http://www.johnnyyiu.com/ and more on the talented artists at http://squabnest.com/2010/09/behind-the-scenes/.
It is an annual event, and you must wear business attire. Shirt, tie, suit if you own one. The starting point is at the top of the hill on Yonge Street, just below St. Clair. Rolling down to Bloor St, west through Queen’s Park, and across Queen Street West. Then north on Spadina to Kensington Market, ending at the Longboard Living shop at 74 Oxford St. I rode my bike amongst them to capture the thrill of boarding the streets of Toronto on a whim. Needless to say the public was quite surprised. Skate or Die!
