[RSVP 03.26] 🥀 Covid-19 has disrupted our lives, economy, and culture. But in times of crisis, there is opportunity for growth. The creative community has a huge role to play in getting us through this while helping to create a vision for a more prosperous future. ⁣ ⁣ To help our community continue to be inspired and educated through this challenging time, we are launching a new online series called Conversations featuring members of the Creator Class community hosted by Director of Programming and @dhanioks. ⁣ ⁣ In each live episode, we'll dive deep into topics photographers, directors, designers, and creatives care about. These conversations will take place on Zoom, a popular free platform for online gathering, that allows for a rich, intimate and interactive experience. ⁣ ⁣ Our first episode features @luismoraphoto , a Colombia-born artist and commercial photographer based in Toronto. His eclectic portfolio of work includes covers for Toronto Life, lookbooks for OVO, celebrity portraits for the Toronto International Film Festival's annual portrait studio, and countless others. Most recently, Luis placed second in the Edward Burtynsky Award and published a book in support of his first solo show Say it with Flowers at the CONTACT Gallery. ⁣ ⁣ Luis is known for his still life photography, and in this episode we'll discuss his approach to the art form and how social distancing and self-isolation presents a great opportunity to become a better photographer while you're at home.

Musician-turned-cook and food photographer @dennistheprescott was taking a break from touring when he decided to borrow cookbooks from the library and make a meal for friends. The connection and community he felt in that moment inspired him to grow his passion for food, sharing photos of his dishes on Instagram along the way for fun – until Food and Wine called requesting he develop recipes and take pictures to share with their readers. Since then, Dennis has released his first cookbook, Eat Delicious, has had his work shared by the likes of Nigella Lawson, and continues to strive to inspire people to invest in time in the kitchen and around the dinner table.⠀ ⠀ We joined Dennis, who lives in his hometown Moncton, New Brunswick, to discuss food styling and photography, and how he doesn’t just want followers to like his photos – he wants to inspire them to build meaningful community around accessible, attainable meals. ⠀ ⠀ Director: Dylan Mitro @meetdylan⠀ Cinematographer: Matt Levin-Gold @matt.lg⠀ Producer: Stephanie Hooker @_stephaniehooker_⠀ Production Manager: Josiah Joseph @josiahjc⠀ Sound Recordist: Sam Rodgers⠀ Editor: Leah Lalich @leahlalich⠀ BTS stills - Tylor Key-Carr @tylorkc⠀ BTS stills - Jared Brookes @momentsbyblue⠀ HMUA - Mikey Elliott @elliotteyedeas⠀ Production Assistant: Marcel Phang ⠀ #canoncreatorlab

[RSVP 12.05] 🦉We all know that moment when the stage lights dim and the audience anticipation is palpable. What most don’t see is what happens behind the scenes. The tireless prep, unforgiving schedule, creative fatigue, endless rehearsals, nonstop jet lag, and finally: the triumph of when it all comes together. For the past 7 years @theo.skudra has been singularly documenting these moments for one of the world’s biggest artists, Drake.⠀ .⠀ Theo is the creative mind behind some of @champagnepapi’s most iconic images and director of his most recent videos (Money In the Grave & Nonstop), both showcasing his signature monochromatic style. He’ll be dropping by the #canoncreatorlab for a discussion and audience Q&A as well as a first-ever gallery of his work, giving us a backstage look at some unforgettable moments from his impressive career. ⠀ .⠀ Note that this is a 19+ event and space is extremely limited so be sure to RSVP [🔗 IN BIO].

Often a mentor to emerging photographers showcasing that aqua-photography is not an exclusive club, Zak will be stopping by the #canoncreatorlab at @Free Space to participate in a convo with photographer Tristan O'Brien (@tristancobrien) to share stories and images from the waves.
