Buskertainment – Downtown Yonge

For six straight weekends in November and December as part of their Winter Magic event series the Downtown Yonge BIA puts on an event called Buskertainment. In locations around the Downtown Yonge Business Improvement Area buskers perform on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 12:00-2:00pm and any donations they receive go to ‘Raising the Roof‘, Canada’s only national charity dedicated to long-term solutions to homelessness. This weekend is the final weekend for the Buskertainment event so if you are shopping in the Downtown Yonge area this weekend take a minute to take in the show.

Above, you will find our photos of a few of the performers who have taken part.

Beauty and the Beast

The photos above were taken at the first ever Winter Woofstock, held last weekend in the Direct Energy Centre at Exhibition Place.  Woofstock (and now Winter Woofstock) are annual festivals centered around and catering to dogs and those who love them.  The festivals are run by the lovely and very creative Marlene Cook. Marlene also runs the Sunday Antique Market in the North St. Lawrence Market and we have shot a variety of material for her promotions in the past. We always look forward to working with Marlene because besides being one of the warmest people you could ever meet, her projects are always a little crazy (think 6 dogs in hippy clothes swaying to a peace song adapted just for them) and always a lot of fun.

One of the events that took place at Winter Woofstock was a fully styled fashion show which included both two and four legged models dressed in their festive best. Making use of a few spare minutes before the models were scheduled to be back on stage we grabbed this model and fired a few quick frames of her looking a slight bit whistful.  The dog, perhaps, looks a  bit reserved – maybe even a little bashful… he IS after all, (gasp) naked…
