“A Night Out” celebrates the glamourous nightlife we all miss, featuring top photographers, models, brands & hotels in a lush photobook launching Tues. March 30, to raise funds for Canadian healthcare workers.
In a first for Canada, Toronto fashion photographer Isaiah Haber – www.isaiahhaberphotography.com – is thrilled to announce the production of a glamourous new charity photobook, “A Night Out” – www.anightout.info. The lavishly produced work, launching on Tuesday, March 30, 2021, contains the creative work from 10 photoshoots staged at 10 of Toronto’s finest hotels, each featuring a sumptuous blend of creators, top models and luxury brands. Proceeds from the sale of the book will go to support Canada’s overwhelmed frontline medical workers.
“The book’s concept came out of a notion that although this pandemic has kept us from going out since last March, everyone could nevertheless really use a glam night on the town,” explains Mr. Haber. “We’re all fantasizing about what we’ll do when we can finally head out to eat, dance and laugh again with our friends, loves and families. This book is meant to tease that dream a little closer to reality, while giving back to the selfless healthcare workers who’ve helped so many Canadians get through the crisis.”
Mr. Haber and his creative team are now putting the finishing touches on the collaboration, as well as producing a short “making of” video about the photoshoot to support the book’s launch. Each photographer’s contribution depicts a different image-driven story of a “fabulous and sensuous” night on the town.
The coffee table book will be produced in a limited print run. Production was sponsored by Peartree Canada (www.peartreecanada.com) and realized through dozens of generous contributing partners (see below). It is expected to sell out fast, thanks to the incredible publicity generated by an eager social media audience of some 3 million and by major news organizations including the Globe and Mail. All participants provided their services, goods, locations and creative efforts at no charge, and will be credited in the work.
The lockdowns have put immense economic pressure on millions of Canadian businesses, freelance creatives and, perhaps most brutally, the hospitality and tourism industries. This book is a collaborative enterprise, enabling everyone involved to show off their best work.
The entire creative team put into play full safety protocol, including pre-testing, masks and PPE, shooting in large open spaces and frequent disinfection of hands, equipment and work areas.
Isaiah Haber is a Toronto-based photographer with a focus on editorial fashion and creative portraits. Passionate about photography and philanthropy, he has worked with various charities including the Lions Foundation and We Charity.
