Ryan Emond – Toronto Tempo

Local talent, Ryan Emond is back at it again. Being located in Toronto now, he wastes no time proving that this time-lapse is one for the books. Watch this video to catch a quick glimpse of Toronto in a nutshell.

I love this city. As tribute, I’ve pieced together thousands of photos that I think capture Toronto’s beautiful skyline, and the essence of the lively downtown core. All but one of the scenes in this time-lapse were shot between September and October of this year.

In some ways, my presentation of Toronto is a follow up to a recent summer fling in Ottawa, where I produced Capital Cruising; thanks to CTV Ottawa’s interest in using the video as an introduction to their 6 o’clock news, I was able to devote myself to the creation of what I hope is a piece that everyone in the city can enjoy.

Thank you to CTV Ottawa for utilizing my last video Capital Cruising (vimeo.com/​26830842) for their 6 o’clock news segment, which indirectly funded this project.

Thank you, Matt Black, of One King West hotels. You gave me the opportunity to behold some of the best views of the city. You should make this hotel a priority if you are visiting! onekingwest.com/​

Thank you, blursurfer. You showed me some crazy vantage points. Please check out his impressive work here: blursurfing.com/​

Thank you 1loveto for keeping in touch these past couple months and launching the video. Check them out at: 1loveto.com/​

Thank you to my family, Jon B, Layla T, and Martin L.

In the future, I’d like to set my sights on Vancouver, and my camera on the province’s sprawling landscape. Or a longer, properly funded Toronto film. If you have any interest in helping me accomplish this goal, e-mail me at: ryanemond747@gmail.com.

I’m shooting with:
Nikon D700 with various lenses rented from Vistek.
Motion with the stage zero dolly from dynamicperception.com/​ (Great product, and the best customer service I have ever experienced.)
I also use a set of Lee filters and an Orion telescope head for some of the pans.
