International travel may be at an all time low, but we’re trying to keep our spirits high. We can’t exactly be gallivanting around the world right now, but what we can be doing is exploring our own beautiful backyards here in Ontario.
Our friend Evann graciously provided her property as a space to showcase some of our favourite frames. We were able to create some beautiful images while remaining physically distant; the models you see together are sharing a social bubble.
If you can’t vacation… staycation!

As a graphic designer from George Brown and a skincare aficionado, Celine enjoys art in many forms. She is an advocate for equality and inclusion and wants to use her skills to impact our community in a positive way. She will also walk your dog.

A very recent Digital Media Marketing post-grad from George Brown, Joshua is currently looking to enter the field – anyone hiring!? He loves to play basketball, play with his Nintendo Switch and play around with photography. When he isn’t playing, he’s reading about playing.

A multipotentialite who enjoys a good puzzle, Sue is still figuring out what they want to be when/if they grow up. Meanwhile, they give grounded and holistic readings at Blue Moon Tarot, volunteer for the LGBTQ community, and dream of retiring to a witch’s cottage in the woods.

Whether touring on their vintage motorcycle or paddling the local rivers, CJ – or “The Old Man” as their partner likes to call them – is always looking for the next story to tell. They find fulfillment by working towards building an equitable and fair society and growing tomatoes.

Somehow, even when she is exhausted, Andrea can still squeeze in another few reps. When she isn’t doing burpees, you can find Andrea educating the minds of our youth as a Kindergarten teacher, practicing the art of portraiture and making tents for her cats.
Andrea is wearing the SALT. Optics Audrey in colour Matte Brushed Honey Gold
A clickity-clacker by day and a paleo chocolate chip cookie baker by night, Matt loves creating things in his workshop and going on adventures. He is a Senior Business Systems Analyst at Miovision who will always have a soft place in his heart for Captain Picard.
Matt is wearing the Garrett Leight Hampton X in colour Matte Brandy Tortoise
