I am finally home, after a whirlwind 3 months that saw me travel from Vancouver to Amsterdam to Paris to Vancouver to Toronto and finally back to Vancouver. My time was spent teaching workshops, shooting engagement sessions, capturing weddings and attending to the assorted tasks that keep the business running smoothly. It was an amazing and successful summer, one that I am so grateful for, but I am ecstatic to finally be home with my girls for a while. And, finally, I can get back to writing more consistently on this blog and sharing the work that has been sitting on my hard drive for months now.
Toronto is a wonderful city for photography, with beautiful architecture and amazing people. I was fortunate to teach two workshops while I was there: my weekend street photography course, followed immediately by a new, five day storytelling travel workshop with my friend and fellow Official Fuji X Photographer, Spencer Wynn.
I don’t shoot a lot when I teach street photography, as I believe that if there is a photo to be made it should be one of my students taking it. Still though, I occasionally make an image to illustrate a point or when I find a quiet moment while my students are on assignment. In this post, I’d like to ease back into the blog with a series of new street images from this world class city, the first of four articles featuring new work from Toronto.
I left my Fujifilm X100F at home for this trip (crazy, I know) and shot everything with my X-T2. I did stay with my preferred 23mm field of view though, using the Fujinon 23mm f/2 for all of my street work. I also had the 16-55mm f/2.8 zoom lens with me, which saw a lot of use during the travel photography workshop (more on that to come in a future post).
I hope you enjoy these little vignettes from the streets of Toronto. I look forward to sharing more with you soon and hope you all had a wonderful summer!
