I think that the reason my passion for photography developed so greatly and quickly was due to photo sharing on Instagram. I had recently switched from a Blackberry to an iPhone and was thrilled to finally download the Instagram app. I saw so many iPhone users post images on Instagram and share on Facebook.
I started primarily following Instagrammers from the Paris area that shot similar images like myself. When I knew I was moving back to Toronto I began following people from the Toronto area as well. One of my favourite photographers I came across was Patrick Colpron, commonly known on Instagram as CandidCameraMan. When I arrived back in Toronto I reached out to Patrick and asked if he wanted to shoot together sometime. I never thought he would respond nor agree to meet up. He gracefully accepted. From that point on we met on several occasions to shoot around the city, sometimes just a few of us and other times in rather large groups.
Patrick has always been very helpful and willing to share his tricks and techniques. For those of you who don’t know him, we thought it would be nice to introduce him to our iLHP readers.
