Spreading The Love for Ottawa

Yes I'm embarking on yet another creative side project - that's what happens when it gets quiet in the summer! It's a photo based tourism project called loveOttawa. The project is pretty simple in concept. I'm going to head out around Ottawa and ask people 'why they love Ottawa', and I'll ask them if I can take their photograph. My assistant Maija and I picked up a 4'x4' white canvas and ventured out for a hour this afternoon to test drive the idea with fun success!

The end result of the project will hopefully become a cool resource for folks who live in Ottawa and would like to know more about their city, and for visitors to Ottawa who'd like some helpful hints to what's worth doing and seeing!

You can follow the project at, on Twitter at @love_ottawa and on Instagram via the hashtag #loveottawa. If you'd like to participate in the project and/or if you'd like more information about loveOttawa please send me an email at
