The stories behind the images on

Shangri-La Hotel Toronto

Shangri-La Hotel in Toronto

The Shangri-La hotel in Toronto is one of the newer luxury hotels the city has to offer. The challenge photographing this building was that the sun can really blow out the glass on the front so the shot had to be taken just as the sun was rising so there is a minimal amount of sun on the outer glass but enough natural light to show the details of the structure. In addition to this I wanted the flag blowing which of course requires a breeze coming from the north. I had set up at this location 4 or 5 times hoping for the right conditions and finally came up with the image above. This image and hundreds more can be seen on my main website

  1. Hi there Andy:

    I’ve spent the last few min just browsing through some of your photos. You have many that I really like.

    Sometimes I think to myself that it would be great for me to just start over and start photographing entirely new subjects. I get tired of the same old thing day in and day out. In the end it never happens however. I just keep plodding along. Perhaps one of these days. Who knows.

    Anyway, thank you for sharing have have a great day,
