On the road to Toronto

After an incredible two day workshop, we left Boston on the 15th of July and headed to Toronto for our second stop on the tour and our very first international workshop!

Before we reached Toronto we made a pit stop at Niagara Falls to explore the beauty Canada has to offer!

We made it to Toronto!

We spent the first day in Toronto exploring the wonderful city, and two of our Wild Ones did the Edge Walk at the top of the CN Tower!

Our second workshop

On the 18th and 19th of July, we had our second workshop. Our location for the shooting day was Toronto Island, a beautiful labyrinthine park reachable only by ferry (or swimming!) with many magical sites including historical buildings, old bridges, gorgeous forests and refreshing beaches with lake and skyline views. We provided a large variety of options for creating photographs including collected and designed wardrobe pieces to outfit our gorgeous models, and many props to choose from. Our students had opportunity to follow each of the instructors through live shoots and then create images on their own.

The second day of the workshop, focusing on business development and editing, took place at the wonderful  Developing Tank Studio right in the heart of Toronto.  The students had the opportunity to follow along in live editing demos and inspiration exercises by the instructors while also delving into their creative process during a free-time portion at the end of the day.
