Event description

Description

In the 80s and 90s, athletic apparel brands helped define popular culture by celebrating sports heroes and inspiring us to become athletes ourselves. Since then, global athletic culture has changed the way we live our lives from the clothes we wear to how we get fit and what we call community.

From running to basketball to CrossFit to Spin, culture is on the move and there are so many stories to capture and share. In celebration of the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon, we're partnering with one of Toronto's best known and loved run crews, Parkdale Roadrunners, to tell the story of our community heroes and the movement they've helped create.

Jason Suarez is a NYC-based photographer who has worked with athletic brands like Nike, Adidas, Reebok, New Balance, and Lululemon as well as Kevin Hart, the New York Mets, ESPN, Spotify, Uber and other iconic organizations. He started shooting back in 2011 with his phone, inspired by photographers he saw on Instagram like @stevesweatpants, @jnsilva, @ilitchpeters and @kevin.ornelas.

Jason now travels the world shooting major marathons and training camps in Kenya and Ethiopia. He'll be dropping by Canon Creator Lab, fresh off an assignment covering the World Championships in Doha for Team USATF, to lead a 3 hour Session exploring the approach, technique and gear needed to tell the story of global and local athletic heroes culminating in a walk to a nearby park to shoot the Parkdale Roadrunners on their weekly run.


Session begins at 6:30pm sharp in the Canon Creator Lab at Free Space.
