Writing + Photography

Memoirs and musings of Darius Bashar. Toronto portrait photographer and writer, in pursuit of all things real, raw and intimate. 

Old Montreal

This past summer I was really lucky and got to work with a few super talented people in Montreal. I was hired as the Creative Director for a fashion campaign, for a brand called Cardinal of Canada. They make great quality men's overcoats that also look sharp. 

I was fortunate to have found a truly talented Montreal team with Brian Ypperciel who did a tremendous job as our photographer and editor and the lovely Florence O. Durand who killed it, as our stylist. We also hit the jackpot with our model Francis Cadieux, who surpassed all of our expectations. 

Lastly, I want to send a big thank you to my homie, Mr. Andrew Peek for bringing me on to this project. It wasn't easy, but in the end, it was well worth it. :=

If you're in the market for a stylish winter coat that will last many years, I'd definitely check out Cardinal of Canada's new website. I can tell you first hand that they make great quality products.
