Men of Younge Street Toronto

The last few months have been very busy with photography. A highlight in late April was a photography commission by Water Babies Toronto Canada.

My brief was to finalise the training of a  new underwater photographer for Water Babies Canada and photograph over 30 babies swimming underwater. I stayed in Toronto for an extra day to photograph and soak up this very special city.

People always say that jetlag is a pain! And it takes a while to get over with such a small window of time in the city I really didn’t get time to adjust! So waking up in my Hotel on Younge street at 3am was just a bit weird and I felt a bit nocternal. Awake and hungry and a need to record my experience in this vibrant city I headed out. It wasn’t long before I found a Tim Hortons where coffee and a bagel got me though these overtired blues.

The following portraits below are from my journey down Younge street between 3am to 5pm – Men who work and live on this amazing street.
