Several weeks ago we spent some time shooting in another one of the large scale business spaces that lighting company Salex provided the lighting for. The concept here was clouds of light with very large circular installations spread throughout the office area.
Office lighting sure has come a long way since the days (and nights) that we spent working in an office.
We had the opportunity to photograph the Aga Khan Museum and the accompanying Ismaili Centre a few weeks ago. The care that went into choosing the design and finishes was evident everywhere. This is a place that you should definitely visit and see for yourself if you get the chance.
In September we began working with Marketplace Events – the company responsible for bringing Toronto the very popular Toronto Fall Home Show each year. This year one of the main features of the show was the Casalife Feature Home designed by FLOROHome Creative Director Emmanuel Belliveau and Project Manager Maria Perketa.
While shooting promotional material for media before the opening of the show we spent a couple of hours in the design space and during that time shot a few editorial portraits of Emmanuel, above. Note the custom built kitchen island in the first shot – just one example of Emmanuel’s design and build creativity. You can see more of FLOROHome’s work on their website: check them out.
One early morning in July we spent a few hours photographing the interior of the newly renovated Holt Renfrew store at Yorkdale Mall. Our objective with this shoot was to capture the lighting and the way it illuminated and complimented the merchandise in various departments.
Although we were surrounded by a plentiful selection of this season’s top fashions and timeless classics from a variety of designers we decided not to take the opportunity to browse – or look TOO closely – at the pieces on offer. That was probably a good choice, as the temptation to do a bit of shopping while we were there might have just been too much.
