My Latest Project - A Photographic Journey of the Tides Condo, Toronto

Hello to my fellow photography art lovers!  I'm thrilled to share some incredible news with you all. After months of dedicated work, I've just completed a truly exciting and inspiring photography project – one that I'm delighted to share with you in this blog post.

As a photographer, there's nothing quite like the feeling of embarking on a new project, and this particular one was truly special for me. I had the privilege of working on a commission project for the "Tides Condo" located in Toronto's scenic West end, near the tranquil Humber River. The challenge? To capture the essence of this beautiful area in 11 custom images, each representing the highlights of the surroundings across the four glorious seasons: spring, summer, fall, and winter. These images would be used to create a beautiful gallery on the hallway walls of the condo lobby.

I must say, immersing myself in this project was an absolute delight. The ever-changing landscape of the area offered a palette of colors, moods, and atmospheres that brought life to my lens. From the vibrant blooms of spring to the rich tapestry of autumn leaves, I was able to encapsulate the beauty that envelops Tides Condo throughout the year.

 

 

But here's the exciting part – these images are now framed and their new home is in the lobby hallway of Tides Condo, where they now stand as a visual testament to the beauty that surrounds the residents every day. Each image is accompanied by two unique QR codes, allowing curious passersby and residents to delve deeper into the story behind the photograph. With a simple scan of the “GPS Location” QR code, they're transported to the exact spot where the photo was taken, adding a touch of adventure to the experience. Scanning the “Image and Artist Info” QR code and they are taken to a page describing the image in greater detail, and also allowing them to order their own copy of the print.

To top it all off, I'm incredibly proud to share that one of my signature Toronto night shots has been chosen to grace the main lobby of the building. This shot captures the magnificent colours of the city at night, and when juxtaposed with the serene nature of the Humber River area images – it results in a truly remarkable blend of urban and natural beauty.

The response from the condo board and the tenants has been overwhelmingly positive. It's heartwarming to see how these images have resonated with them, as they've shared their appreciation for the visual journey I've tried to encapsulate. It's moments like these that remind me why I'm so passionate about photography – the ability to capture the essence of a place, a feeling, and a moment in time.

As I reflect on this project, I'm filled with gratitude for the opportunity to have worked on such a unique and inspiring commission. The process of capturing the ever-changing landscape around Tides Condo and translating it into art has been incredibly fulfilling.

Thank you for joining me on this journey, and I can't wait to continue sharing more of my photographic adventures with you all. Until next time, keep capturing the beauty around you through your lens!
