At The Lonely End Of The Rink

25 Nov

On Friday I was so pumped up about shooting at night after posting about it, I had to get out again.  Myself and a couple of other photographers got together and headed out.  We started at a park just south of the Danforth where, we stumbled on an empty rink, I thought of the lockout and the Tragically Hip song that inspired the title for this post.  From there we went downtown.  Here are a few frames.

Underpass Park – Toronto Development

23 Nov

I got out last weekend to do a bit of night shooting.  If you follow my blog, you know that Toronto at night is one of my favourite things to photograph.  Last week we got down to Underpass Park, part of the waterfront development plan here in Toronto.  If you get a chance, check it out either by day or nigh, it is a wonderful spot!

Toronto Street Shooting Photowalk

9 Nov

Yesterday, I got the chance to go out on a photowalk with more than 20 other great photographers.  Here are a bunch of images that I grabbed, as you’ll see, we found a lot of skaters.

It was really cool to bump into my old friend Taha on the walk, we ended up spending the whole day shooting together along with my friend Simon.  I didn’t know that he had taken up photography and further to that he is the greatest iPhone photographer I’ve ever met.  Seriously.  check out his Instagram feed and see for yourself.  That said, I processed everything from yesterday’s walk in black and white with the exception of this portrait that I grabbed of Taha, the colour was just too good.  You can see Simon’s set from yesterday by clicking here .  It’s neat to see how we each captured similar situations from different perspectives. Jay McIntyre Photography Toronto Street Photography Taha

Jeff And Natasha In Love And Getting Married

26 Oct

Remember Jeff and Natasha? We met up in Kensington Market on one of the nicer days this fall and did some exploring with a bit of picture taking along the way with a minor interruption in the way of a Steam Whistle delivery truck.  What a lovely couple! I am excited to be a part of their upcoming wedding.

Jeff And Natasha – Sneak Peek

19 Oct

Jeff and Natasha are one of the sweetest couples you will ever meet.  We got together in Kensington Market today and had some fun shooting their engagement.  Here’s a peek.

Keira Light Graffiti

3 Aug

I’ve really wanted to combine light graffiti with a model for quite some time now.  Keira and I connected through Model Mayhem and hit Graffiti Alley near Portland Ave.  She was patient with me as I tried to figure out exactly what I was doing and as the wind reeked havoc on my equipment.  There is room for improvement in technique but in the end we got some pretty good images.

Sheldon And Sherien In Love

29 Nov

What a ridiculously good looking couple!

Sherien is a repeat client that you may recognize from the film Colour Me.  Some exciting news about the film, the Bell TIFF Lighbox has picked it up and will promote it as a part of Black History Month!

Sheldon and Sherien were really fun to hang out with and shoot for the afternoon, here is a series from our time together.

Studio In The Street

11 Jul

On Friday night, my friend and I set out, as we often do, to do some downtown shooting.  As I set out to meet him, I was reminded of a video I watched a while back of Clay Enos shooting portraits in the street.  This gave birth to the idea to set up a studio in the street.

We set up an umbrella with my flash and wireless trigger and a reflector against a wall on the corner of Queen and Peter streets at around 11pm and started stopping people for portraits.

Update – I took a more incognito approach here

Jay McIntyre Photography Street Studio First things First was a couple of test shots on Paul, which grabbed enough attention to start stopping people for their free portraits.

This concept generated a lot of discussion about model release forms and whether or not I need one for this kind of shooting.  There is absolutely no plan to profit from any of these images, they will never be used commercially, so I see no need for a model release form.  The purpose of this shoot was to get some on location lighting practice while also giving people a free portrait that they can use for their social media profile pics and such.  And for me to do something that terrifies me, making myself completely vulnerable to strangers.  That said, if you see yourself in this post and would like the image removed, please let me know and I will take it down. (and email you a copy)

BTW, not everyone who’s image I took is pon the blog.  If you had an image taken by me, please email me for your copy!

I can’t wait to stand with them as they get married.  What a blessing they are to know.  What a blessing they will be to eachother!

Chris And Bonnie – A Sneak Peek

29 Jun

I am both excited and honoured to have a different sort of wedding request from Chris and Bonnie.  Instead of being asked to photograph their wedding, I’ve been invited to stand alongside Chris as he and Bonnie enter into this exciting new chapter of life.   Since I won’t be shooting their wedding, I offered an engagement shoot.  We went out to Centre Island this past weekend to get a few images, this image was the last one of the evening.  More to come.
