Behind the Camera


Are you a promoter or a band? Do you need just the right photo for promotional purposes.

Orest Dorosh is a freelance photographer based out of the Greater Toronto Area. Orest started out in photography many years ago, back in the film days. Orest put down the camera for while to pursue a career as a graphic designer in which he still makes a living. He got into concert photography because he loves music and loves the energy rush you get coming from the stage. And how else could he get so close to some of these performers that he adores so much.
