Last month I made a couple of photo stops around Toronto. After the AGO, I stopped by the WilkinsonEyre designed pedestrian bridge that connects Hudson Bay’s flagship store with the Eaton Centre mall.

We shared our on-location approach to subjects, compositional tools and tips on working in series. A few days later we met up for our weekend of […]
