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 (to be 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 …..
