Hollinrake Portfolio PDF Available

Yes, the images on my website are really small. We had our reasons. Would you like to see them way bigger? Please contact me at the studio by e-mail kathryn@hollinrake.com or by phone at 416 465-8280. I'd be happy to send you a PDF version of my book. And if you can give me a little bit of direction in terms of the kind of images you're interested in I can even customize it for you before sending.

Cat Island, The Bahamas

My family and I spent March Break this year at a secluded little resort called Pigeon Cay on Cat Island in the Bahamas pigeoncaybahamas.com.  For just over a week we lived in the Casuarina cottage named for the casuarina evergreen trees abundant along the coast. The cottages are beautifully individually decorated with Mexican tiles, and other appealing details, each one unique and quaint. There is always a breeze on the island if not an outright wind, the result of which is a sound incongruously reminiscent of the wind one hears while hiking in the Canadian Rockies. I spent a little time on our trip attempting to depict the ceaseless wind photographically.

Step Into Health!

I haven't seen them yet but Toronto Public Health's Chronic Disease Prevention Program is producing posters and various collateral materials in support of their Step Into Health initiative encouraging people to "step into health" by taking the stairs. We spent a challenging day on a tight schedule shooting several models taking the stairs in multiple locations within the beautifully designed CNIB building on Bayview. Prior to the shoot day when location scouting we had to laugh when a group of employees in another building whose staircases we were checking out called out to the site manager that they wanted an elevator put in ASAP so they wouldn't have to keep using the stairs.
