I‘m continuously looking for the shot. As I live and work in downtown Toronto, everything is a possible subject. Back alley. An odd angle on a building. How the light hits a bridge at night.

For the past few weeks, I used Instagram as a tool to push me. It started with the simple concept of photographing some of my favourite spots throughout the city—at night. Like many a big city, there’s an electricity in Toronto at night. A constant buzz. The following series is inspired by that. It purposely has left people (over 6 million and counting) out of the shots. Well, all but the last shot. That’s because the next series will be a portrait series of the people of this city.

As this was a purely creative piece, prints are available. I’ve already sold a couple. Just hit me up.
