Cavalcade of lights

December 13, 2008

I was supposed to head to a house party but it was cancelled at the last minute. So I packed my gear and headed to City Hall. This was the last night of the fireworks from the Cavalcade of lights. If I missed this - I would have to wait till New Year's Eve for the next fireworks. For the last couple of years, the Cavalcade of lights always had some performance act doing an outdoor show but I guess because of budget cutbacks - no live performances were booked - only fireworks...

Anyways, here is what I was able to capture.

Rock Star

December 8, 2008 - A cold Monday evening, I was offered a chance to shoot some up and coming musicians at a Studio near Queen street east.

I usually don't shoot alot of musicans but I did have the pleasure of capturing some moments for Vanderpark in 2007.

and Plakaso in 2008.

This time, I did not have a photo studio or a club but there was a music studio to shoot in.

iFreeStyle Salsa Christmas Gala

Saturday, December 6, 2008

The evening’s main event was the iFreeStyle’s Salsa Christmas Gala. This was the second annual Gala I have been invited to and it was just as fun to shoot as the last one. The party has increased in size and has moved to The Great Hall on Queen Street West. The gala was semi-formal with everyone dressed with class and style.

As usual, the iFreeStyle parties have great food but I missed midnight Dessert Table! Best food I have seen of the Salsa christmas parties this year.
