Montreal Home Cover Fall 2011

I have been working with a great new magazine in Montreal. Montreal Home Magazine is a design and architecture publication showcasing the 'finer' side of Montreal living.

The production crew is great, and we always have a lot of fun on the shoots.
A big shout out to the team behind the scenes, they do an awesome job of laying it all out and getting it distributed on time.

Be sure to check out the latest issue in stores now.
If you are in the Toronto area be sure to pick-up a copy of the inaugural issue of Toronto Home Magazine

Shooting on the Streets, by the book.

When shooting in public areas and on city streets for commercial production the question of permits and insurance need to be addressed.

I recently shot on the streets of Montreal for a fashion client and thought I’d put out some helpful info which was given to me by a friend and producer Jubs. Thx Jubs!!

This post relates to small stills production where no roads were closed or other hindrances incurred due to the production.

Essentially if you are taking your production to the street you need to make contact with Valerie at Montreal Film & TV Commission, or like organization depending on your city.

In Montreal you can obtain a Fast-Track Filming Permit, which allows you to shoot on sidewalks, street alleys, parks and public places. There is no fee for the permit but processing is a minimum of 48hr turn around.

What you will need is to make sure you have proof of Civil Liability Insurance naming

City of Montreal as an additional insured for a minimum of 1Million. This can be added to you Commercial General Liability Insurance contract for a nominal fee.

I hope this info proves useful...

I am happy to have shot both French & English covers for the 2011 Spring Issue of

Sans Script

I shot this story a while ago, before winter could tighten it's grip on Montreal.
I wanted to keep things fairly simple, using only natural daylight. The best source available.
