What is Connections?

CONNECTIONS LOGO.png

We are undergoing a lot of changes here at 1840 Danforth! We have a new brand name, Alternative Photo Services, which encompasses the gallery, print shop and pop up shows. Within this new brand is Connections.

Carissa and Bob are very excited about this new venture, and hope you are too! Here they give a bit of history surrounding Connections, and what to expect!

 

Bob

How did Connections come to be? 

 Connections is Carissa’s name, but the concept is a very long time coming for me.

When I started my company in 1991 I only did film and contacts.  My loyal customers have kept asking me to do more, like print portfolios, print exhibits, frame and mount, this led to the Elevator Gallery at 9 Davies in 1998. This experience showed me the difficulties of running a gallery but as well the need for a place for photographers to exhibit.

Now we see the need for our artists to exhibit and be known in other markets, which enhances their visibility and builds solid CV’s and reputation as a reliable working photographer who exhibits work.

The move to the Danforth, and building the gallery (which is above our printing and framing facility) was the first step.

The addition of Carissa and her marketing abilities allowed us to first work with groups in Montreal, now Washington, New Orleans and five other locations swirling around in her brain.
