We will meet at the Allen Gardens Conservatory where we will have the opportunity to photograph one of the best and most extensive indoor botanical collections in Canada. Allen Gardens is host to an impressive array of plants and flowers allowing us to apply a number of photographic skills while enjoying the surrounding beauty. Guests will have the opportunity to employ macro photography, master depth-of-field, and lighting challenges while enjoying the many species of plants. Allen Gardens has 5 distinct plant environments and houses a wide variety of tropical, subtropical, and arid plants not native to Toronto. During the tour, we will pass through each section (environment) so Guests will have ample time for creativity. This experience is indoors and is, therefore, an excellent setting for photographers of all skill levels to have fun! Allen Gardens is located in downtown Toronto, with easy access to public transportation. The Conservatory is easily reached by bus, car, bicycle, and on foot. Parking is available in the local area and is usually paid-parking.
Hi, I am the Photographer behind Estate Photo Art, a commercial photography business in Toronto. I have had the opportunity to travel the world and photograph many incredible places. My philosophy is to create beautiful images of ordinary "things". My photography is defined by composition, lighting, and perspective, placing my emphasis behind the lens and less in post-processing. This experience is designed to stimulate photographic creativity by visiting important Toronto landmarks that also make for great imaging. I have over 40 years as a dedicated Nikon photographer. From film to digital platforms, I greatly enjoy the creativity, mated with the technical challenges of making great photographs. I also greatly enjoy passing along my knowledge, tips, and experience(s). Cheers!
The Allen Gardens Conservatory boasts a wonderful indoor collection of flowering plants from around the world. Photographers will have the opportunity to image rare orchids, unusual succulents, and truly beautiful surroundings.

This is an experience for any skill level photographer. The indoor environment lends well to imaging and the lack of wind, rain, and other detractions make for a really great location!
