The Ritz Carlton Toronto
I just had to show these off – I was commissioned to photograph the new Ritz-Carlton hotel, by Cadillac Fairview, at Wellington and Simcoe. The new hotel is not only lovely, but it was a challenge to shoot because of the vast spaces and combinations of natural and tungsten lighting – and I love a challenging shoot =o)
I loved this room, high ceiling and a light, airy space. This was the only such space in the hotel which had a more traditional bent to it’s decor.
These two photographs were both of the hotel lobby. In each case you are looking at a 12 photograph panoramic stitch. I use photomerge in PS CS4 to stitch, and then blend the results by hand.
This is of the lower lounge for the restaurant. I love the chandelier.
This is the upper lounge of the restaurant, Toca. Hidden behind this table is the cheese cave.
The cheese cave is visible through the glass on the right. It’s the only one of its kind in Canada, part showroom and part aging facility. It showcases 80% Canadian product.
The hotel bar/lounge.
The shoot is not yet complete – I’ve still got to cover the spa, boardroom, sky lounge residential area and aerial study (possibly from a helicopter) Gosh, I love my job ;o)
