TOPW’s 7th anniversary, November 26th

October 18th, 2016

Another year has rolled around for Toronto PhotoWalks – November brings with it the 7th anniversary of the first TOPW walk!

We will be celebrating at Louis Cifer Brew Works on Saturday November 26th, starting at 5pm. We have the upstairs section but they do get very busy so they’ve asked us to arrive promptly as they may have to seat other people once they fill up downstairs.

We are hoping to set up a slideshow, so start picking out your favourite few shots from the past 12 months of photowalks. Instructions on how to send us those images will be added soon.

There’s also talk of a pre-party photowalk; we’ll update with details as they emerge. The important thing is to mark the date in your diary so you can join us!

Free Walk and Wonder, October 16th

October 14th, 2016

Geoff has proposed a leaderless walk; the plan is to meet at 10am on Sunday (Oct16) at the Starbucks on the NW corner of King & Yonge. Those who are there will decide on the route and stops. “We can organize ourselves based on numbers, weather and photo interests. There’s lots of local knowledge and photo experience to be shared.”
If you’re joining the walk after they start, Geoff’s phone number is 416-571-1809.

WorldWide PhotoWalk 2016, October 1st

September 19th, 2016

This year’s WorldWide PhotoWalk coincides with the regular Toronto Photo Walks schedule again, so the morning will be a combined walk.

Morning: If you want to join the morning’s walk, please join the WWPW list.

Lunch: The Monk’s Table (confirmed – they’re expecting about 40 people to arrive between noon and 12:30pm).

Afternoon: I’m guessing we’ll set off about 2pm – it’s going to take a while for everyone to be fed & watered. We’ll head across Rosehill Reservoir and back into the Yellow Creek ravine. Head north, under St.Clair, and into Mt.Pleasant cemetery. There are a choice of paths, but we’ll strike generally east until we reach Mt.Pleasant Road. There we’ll walk north to Davisville Ave; west to Pailton Crescent and along Balliol St to see Al Green Sculpture Park. It’s then just a short walk north on Yonge to the pub. [Map for the afternoon]

Post-walk pub: The Wallace (confirmed)

Portraits & Pot Luck, August 21st

August 10th, 2016

Thanks to Andrew for hosting this!

Time for a “walk” in the shade …

Andrew’s address: 40 Harriet St, Toronto …. 1 block north of Leslie & Gerrard

The plan: Gather at my house/backyard at 11am and for a couple of hours we will take portraits of each other – Yes! —- YOU get to be the models as well as the photographers.
I will have a few set ups in and around my house, plus there are some locations on my street that we can use.
I have light boxes, umbrellas, a few strobes, universal trigger … some stuff.
Bring your off camera flashes, any props or other gear you think appropriate

At 1pm-ish we will sit down for a pot luck lunch.
My backyard is quite large with lots of seating and is 95% shaded – by the trees, by the permanent tarp and the temporary parachute.

After lunch we will sit in the shade and talk a lot …..
