New Work by Ryan Szulc

 

 

Photographer Ryan Szulc shares a new trio of images he created for The Drake Hotel in Toronto to promote its new catering service. 

 

Working with prop stylist Martine Blackhurst, Szulc set up a 1970s-inspired shoot that both pays homage to Dutch still life paintings and revels in the lavish offerings on the Drake Catering menu.

Q&A with Photographer Jessica Deeks

 

 

When photographer Jessica Deeks stumbled across the Ottawa Rock Camp for Girls, she knew it would be a great fit for her next personal project. The camp is a local initiative run by self-identified women that provides music programming to self-identified girls—from jam sessions to gig planning to rock 'n' roll nights.

 

Deeks timed the release of the portraits, below, to International Women's Day (the full collection, along with candids and video, is on her site). We asked her more insight about the project.

Rad Channels

 

 

If the medium is the message, Channel 13’s experiential and social campaign for a new shopping app geared to Gen Y’ers was the perfect match-up.

 

Shop Bonsai, a Canadian shopping app for millennial males that partners with brands and content creators to sell product through editorial, charged Channel 13 with its marketing plan. The Vaughan, Ontario–based creative agency is headed by—you guessed it—a trio of millennial males.

 

“For us, a big thing is connecting on the same wavelength as our client as opposed to a just producing a deliverable,” says Michael Gioffre, creative director at Channel 13, of the relationship. “We like to be hand-in-hand with our clients.”
