Chasing The Gram

As seen on Toronto Financial District BIA’s blog

If there’s one place I spend a lot of time when I’m not working or sleeping it’s on the streets of downtown Toronto’s Financial district. Lots of time. So …

Chasing The Gram: Ain’t nothin’ gonna break-a my stride

Ain't nothin' gonna break-a my stride, Nobody gonna slow me down, oh no, I got to keep on movin'! 💃💥💃💥💃 ______________ Had a fun afternoon on the east side of downtown with @416citizen yesterday. I'll be the first to admit that I haven't spent much time shooting there and I'm not sure why, but it turned into an awesome adventure and I got some fantastic shots for an assignment I'm working on. That's the thing about freelance life, there's no such thing as "weekends off", every day when I wake up I can choose if it's a Monday, Friday, or Sunday, and whatever I choose has it's own results both negative and positive. But I'm ok with that, because I'm doing what I'm passionate about. For bookings, prints or any other inquiries contact me via DM or visit my website at www.wons.ca @nikoncanada

Chasing The Gram: New Years Day 2017

"New Year's Day. A fresh start. A new chapter in life waiting to be written. New questions to be asked, embraced, and loved. Answers to be discovered and then lived in this transformative year of delight and self-discovery. Today carve out a quiet interlude for yourself in which to dream, pen in hand. Only dreams give birth to change." - Sarah Ban Breathnach ? ________________ ? @dreamweaverdana @nikon_canada

Chasing The Gram: 2016 Instagram Top 9

What a year! It got down to the wire but I achieved even my goal of hitting 6000 followers before 2017. THANK YOU EVERYBODY! I met a lot of really great people this year who have inspired me, encouraged me, given me opportunities, and been a part of my 2016 story in some way. I just want to take a moment to thank you all, and if I missed your name it's not because I don't love you it's because it's 3am when I'm typing this and Instagram limits the amount of people you can tag. Also, I don't do 365 projects because I do 400+'s ? @1junglelady @dj_vilify @duchessanddragons @aynsleyjay @insightimaging @416citizen @raw.philes @freaktography @carolgong @cinnaavox @stilez @ericmarkdo @photified @javin_lau @benroffelsen @ashtontekno @pr0ject_uno @kehli_g @offleashstudio ... And many many more #2016

As many of you know I went on my first ever trip to New York recently and had an incredible time and met some really great people, including some of the men of Ladder 118 / Engine 205 "Fire Under The Bridge" house in Brooklyn Heights, Brooklyn. I initially snapped into the firehall's open doors from across the street as to not disturb the firemen relaxing out front at 2 in the morning and then walked away. I got a couple shots, not the ones I had wanted but shots none the less. I managed to get around the corner until I felt I had to go back and get the shot I wanted. I didn't know exactly what that shot was or how I was going to get it, but I knew had to go back. Upon double backing to the firehall with my friend @aynsleyjay we chatted with the firemen and asked if I could snap some shots, they welcomed me in and let me to take all the photos I wanted. We all chatted while I snapped away around the firehall, really nice guys, and after a few minutes I got this shot, thanked them for their time and we walked off into the night. I knew September 11th was coming up, and I wanted to post this image in honour of all the fallen men and women who didn't run from, but ran into the face of death and danger on that September morning. It wasn't until I Google searched Ladder 118 last night that I realized that exact truck wasn't only at Ground Zero, it was wrecked, the lives of 6 brave men on it lost their lives, only to be rebuilt and put back into service. If you take a moment to google search "Ladder 118 9/11“ you'll see some pretty intense images and the names and story of these heroes. The chalk board in the top right of this image hasn't been changed since 9/11 and still has the name of the crew as it was on this day 15 years ago today. @fdny RIP Ladder 118: Joseph Agnello Vernon Cherry Scot Davidson Robert Regan Leon Smith JR.
