Portrait | Tom Forrestall

While waiting for the models to get their hair and make-up done for a fashion shoot at Chateau Laurier, I was roaming about scouting for the shoot locations and noticed this elderly gentleman sketching away. Asked him if I could take his photos while he worked and he happily obliged. We chatted for awhile after and turns out he is the famed Canadian painter Tom Forrestall, in town for an opening of an exhibition of his works. I made couple of prints and mailed them to him afterwards which he kindly replied with a hand written letter. :)
