For more than 10 years, Magenta Studio Photo's talented photographers have teamed up with clients to craft custom-fitted photo sessions. Each session starts with a consultation to review the myriad options available for solo portraits, couples, families, and more. Then, clients can create a preferred ambience by selecting background colours and lighting options. Tailored photo sessions give models the chance to pose with props brought from home or from Magenta Studio Photo's costume cache. Following the session, photographers are happy to review every pose to ensure satisfaction and to help subjects select shots that can be immortalized on a fleet of products, such as prints, iPhone cases, and home accessories.
Customers can peruse the homepage gallery for examples of Magenta Studio Photo's moment-capturing prowess, and consult the FAQ page to answer any inquiries.
Employing professional broadcast equipment, the memory restorers at Toronto Home Movies weave threadbare tapes into a sleek tapestry of digital imagery. Adept analog whisperers gently coax VHS, HI8, 8MM, Digital 8, and MiniDV ($12.50 per hour) or film ($25 for 100 ft. of 16mm film) into selflessly giving their content to the 21st century. Audio/visual virtuosos ready home videos, old movies, and public service announcement collections for transfer with a thorough cleaning and conditioning. After technicians edit out reel markers and empty frames, computers step in to scrutinize and enhance every frame for optimal colour and clarity. Customers leave with a high-quality DVD that, like every sequel ever made, is a vast improvement on the original.
The image doctors at Black’s transform damaged snapshots into mint-condition memories with their photo-restoration service. A seasoned staff member artfully scans aged pictures in disrepair from years of nostalgic glances, sending the original home with the owner for safekeeping. Camera-captured likenesses then undergo a digital time warp that expunges them of all scratches, tears, and poltergeists lurking in the background in three days or less, regardless of the amount of initial damage to the source print. After the corrected portrait has been inspected by the customer, the rejuvenated image takes its frameable form in a 6"x8" print, and a CD traps both the restored and original images in its data-storing underbelly to use for additional prints or as references for photorealistic macaroni portraits.

With two one-session tickets ($22 each) to this year's event, you and a guest will get admission to the five-hour session of your choice. Each ticket comes with five drink/food vouchers ($5 total value) and a sampling glass. Lap up libations in the original fermenting cellar of the former Gooderham and Worts Distillery while ignoring the plaintive moans of James Worts's ghost, or delve into delicious dining with a gourmet fare fair at The Boiler House. While taste buds are kept occupied by the slate of savoury drinks and elegant edibles, ears can eat up live music from some of Toronto's local soundsmiths. Throughout the weekend, complimentary seminars will be held on a variety of topics, including spirit selection and wine pairings.
