- C$59 for a 90-minute photography workshop for one (C$600 value)
Toronto based professional photographer and world-traveler Cameron MacMaster imparts the finer points of photography with up to five students per workshop. The 90-minute session begins with a quick tutorial on the basic functions of the camera–the primary focus being how to shoot in Manual Mode. After the tutorial, the group heads into downtown Toronto to experiment with their new camera skills. Each student receives plenty of one-on-one attention thanks to the small class size. Workshops are held every Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m., unless it’s raining or too cold to hold a camera.
For almost 20 years, Cameron MacMaster made a living as a professional dancer and choreographer but later pirouetted toward his true passion: photography. The self-described travel buff frequently takes his camera on the road, amassing photos at locales as varied as Mexico, Australia, and India, where he’s returned several times. He also explores downtown Toronto through his lens, snapping richly textured shots of the city’s towering architecture and skylines.
Cameron brings that same award-winning eye for detail to his sessions at Froz'n Motion, where he specializes in wedding and engagement photography, as well as portraiture. In lieu of gimmicky compositions, he prefers to frame his subjects as simply as possible, relying on the emotion of each moment instead of how cool those emotions look from a dangling helicopter ladder.
