Tdot Studio is Tdot Shots
You may know us from our involvement with the Toronto photography community. We launched our Instagram and website in 2018. We have featured more than 500 photographers on more than 1500 posts, interviewed 50 photographers for our Five Questions feature, and led hundreds of GTA photographers on photo walks.
As Tdot Shots we host the annual Iconic Toronto Photo Contest, and train creators to use Photoshop, WordPress and other tools, via our website, Tdot Studio (you are here!).
We are grateful for your support and we welcome you to our new community project!
