Andrew Smith is a lifelong creative with 40 years working as a carpenter in movies and television, building the odd and the unusual. Now retired, he's an art photographer who creates pictures that are odd and unusual. His aim is to create abstract images from the reality around us.

David Williams is a Toronto street and landscape photographer who documents the relationships between people and their environments, both natural and created. These relationships may be fleeting or stable but they all tell a story -whether it be an accidental juxtaposition or a glimpse into everyday life.

Jeff Stewart resides in the East York area of Toronto. His interest in photography started in high school. He received a Bachelor of Applied Arts in Photography from Ryerson Polytechnical Institute (now Ryerson University) in 1986. Jeff’s photographic influences are varied. His photography can be seen on Flickr. Mary Crandall has, for many years, been walking the streets and alleys of Toronto taking pictures of people and places that catch her eye. She uses these photos in her blog (As I Walk Toronto) where she documents some of the many stories that the city has to tell.

Sasha Furlani is a digital and analog enthusiast whose practice covers a wide range of photographic genres.  Currently a Master of Arts candidate in the Film & Photographic Preservation and Collection Management program at Ryerson University, his passion for collections and photographic history is reflected in his approach to photography.
