Here’s a couple new food photography promo pieces featuring some delicious salads and a sandwich I shot recently at Porta Via Restaurant. Porta Via is a great little restaurant and they make some of the best salads and sandwiches I’ve ever eaten. The ingredients are all top quality and everything is made to order right in front of you. The original restaurant is on Eglinton West near Renforth Drive, but they now have a second location in Markham and are starting to franchise. So watch for more locations soon.
Last week I finished a new logo design for my other website CanPhoto.Net. This logo builds upon the current leaf shutter logo that I designed several years ago and I think it looks a bit more refined. This new logo will be used for CanPhoto’s Twitter account, as well as our Facebook page. I’m also planning to print it on some T-shirts.
I’d love to hear any feedback regarding the new logo, and I hope you’ll visit CanPhoto.Net and check out our professional discussion forums as well as all the other resources we offer for Canadian photographers.
Happy 94th birthday to Nelson Mandela (Madiba is his Xhosa clan name). This picture of Mandela taken in 1958 during his Treason Trial is from a book I bought in South Africa called “Sof’town Blues”, which features a lot of great images by Jurgen Schadeberg, and other great South African photographers.
Starting tonight at the Bloor Hot Docs Cinema and running until July 12. Coast Modern: From LA to Vancouver, a legacy of inspired living by the pioneers of West Coast Modernist Architecture.
I’m going to try and go on Sunday when the directors will be there for a post-screening discussion.
This looks like a very interesting movie about John Portman, who was nearly run out of the American Institute of Architects and now is recognized as one of the most innovative and imitated architects ever.
