This was one of my first, if not my first shoot (can’t remember) during TIFF in September. It was my third time covering the festival since I was 18 and I just remember this being one of my busiest days. I had something right before this shoot, and then immediately after I had to run over to MuchMusic for my live on-air interview about who I’m looking forward to photographing at the film festival (which was really great and I’m hugely grateful for them having me). I had another shoot right after my interview as well I believe. Timing was very tight in between them all. Even worse: parking was a total bitch… it usually always is anywhere downtown in Toronto, but with the excitement from TIFF… even worse. All of this happened at rush hour too… my God… I just remember the sheer madness but somehow it all worked out perfectly and was an amazing day. I said to Adrian, “I’m like the Canadian ‘Teenage Paparazzo” … even though I’m not a pap nor have I ever participated in the “sport” he seemed to like that. He was a really cool guy. I was really curious to meet him because of his movie! My girlfriend ran into him later that day while she was guarding my laptop and showed him the photos. It was a good start to a great film festival… my best so far!
