Canada Day 2014: 2 ON 2 BREAKIN BATTLE!

On Canada Day this year DJ Serious and BBoy Benzo of the legendary Bag of Trix Crew/RBP hosted their annual 2 on 2 Bboy & BGirl battle at Toronto's Harbourfront Center WestJet Stage. Judged by FIL FURY, NASTIC, and FLEX BTX the turn out was  awesome with all the breakers (some as far away as New York City) competing for a $1000 cash prize.


Luminato VIP gala event…In an abandoned power plant! UNREAL!


On Thursday I was fortunate enough to attend the Yves St. Laurent & Luminato opening party with my father which was held at the old Hearn Power Station, usually the site of movie sets and the odd urban explorers who venture in to snap photos although the premises is patrolled by security 24/7, Thursday it saw a whole new kind of event.


DGC: Orphan Black Q&A

I was teamed up with my friend and videographer Nick from Ennkay Digital ( ) to cover the Director's Guild of Canada hosted screening of the season 2 premier of Orphan Black at TIFF Bell Lightbox. Following the screening they held a Q&A session moderated by Director Ken Girotti with; Director/Creator/Writer/Producer John Fawcett, Director/Editor Brett Sullivan, and Composer Trevor Yuile.


Michael Thompson Election Fundraiser


I had the pleasure of covering Toronto city councilor Michael Thompson's 2014 re-election fundraiser at The Courthouse on Adelaide St E. in downtown Toronto last week. Among the attendees were guest speakers and Toronto mayoral candidates; Olivia Chow, Karen Stintz, John Tory, and current Toronto Deputy Mayor, Norm Kelly.


Untitled & Co: SS14: Toronto

Untitled & Co SS14- Nick Wons-2212

Two weeks ago I had the pleasure of shooting the crew at Toronto-based fashion label Untitled & Co. for an upcoming issue of Product magazine, which was a TON of fun. He followed up after the shoot with an invite to their SS14 (Spring/Summer 2014) presentation event at the Storys building which was the first event of this kind for their company, certainly not missing out on an opportunity to support a friend and local business.


Abandoned warehouse rave? YES PLEASE!

Promise Heart Party_Nick Wons-7164

So for Valentine's Day this year seeing as how I was single I wasn't sure what exactly to do, until I got a message from my Montreal friend Cyndi about a party her boyfriend was throwing with the wonderful people over at Promise.  A-MAZING!


Projek: Dub FX @ Opera House ft Vilify


So last week I got to hang out with my long time awesome friend, Vilify, as she was in town to spin @ Projek: Dub FX. Prior to the party kicking off I met up with my friend Taylor from Vice X Virtue clothing (the same company I did these t shirts with) for a quick shoot with Vilify.


Labour of Love 2013 @ GUV

Labour of Love 2013

One word can explain #LoL2013... MADNESS! After all my years in the scene in Toronto as a photographer or as a party person I'd never attended a Labour of Love event at Guvernment before, until this year. For those of you who have never been lets just say it's a mix of some amazing music and artists, beautiful people (especially the dancers!), crazy light shows and enough energy to power a decent sized city all under one all access roof for 2 nights and encompassing Chroma, Skybar, Guvernment & Kool Haus venues.
