The JTP crew got an extended summer last fall, shooting in and around Ontario for the 2017 Spring/Summer Issue of Canadian Tire’s WOW Guide. We would like to thank the creative team and our dedicated crew of assistants, stylists, and retouchers for all their hard work.

Check out all the Behind The Scene shots of us ‘working’ hard. And be sure to pick up your copy of the WOW Guide!

The Gourmet Dad BTS in L.A.

Behind the scenes, Clients, Location, Travel

A little while back, our crew had the pleasure of spending some time in L.A. with Dean McDermott (and Tori and the kids, of course) to shoot his new cookbook, The Gourmet Dad: Easy and Delicious Meals the Whole Family Will Love. 

Here are some behind-the-scenes shots from our time working on this awesome project between Toronto and Los Angeles. To our discovery, Dean is just as serious about hamming it up for the camera as he is about food.

From the depths of the archives, we recently discovered some behind the scenes photos from one of our 2013 shoots with Canadian Tire!

It was one of our  more extensive projects, where we teamed up with many talented people including “Brought To You By”. With a lot of hard work, handy work, and smiles all around, the crew powered through, creating some on set magic!

Ah….The Great Outdoors

Behind the scenes, Location, Travel

At the very least, we can say we had somewhat of a “bonding” experience, after our 2 long days in the Ganaraska Forest.

We braved a sea of mosquitoes, a couple massive storms, rescued a set of keys trapped inside a vehicle, trekked through the mud carrying a dining room, while having a laugh about the state of our pruney fingers…

Thanks again to the entire team!
