We are pleased to announce that we have partnered again with the students and teachers at Parkdale Collegiate Institute, this year. Led by the talented team at Hello Foto, the students were instructed and guided through a number of photography methods and techniques. The photos displayed this year featured some very special subjects, Parkdale businesses and their owners! We are thrilled with the work the students have produced and look forward to sharing the portraits of local businesses and the people that own and operate them, with you the whole month of May, 2015.
