1- You are not alone - Toronto is filled with photographers!
This can be a bad thing if you see photographers as your competition, but it can also be the best thing for any photographer! Share your thoughts on photography, your tips and techniques, and you will in return get inspired more than ever if you make them your friends. In fact, photographers should be your best friends.
2- Most people in Toronto have an open mind and are supportive.
A big percentage of people in this city do encourage artists and entrepreneurs. Work at being creative and standing out of the crowd, and you will be successful without a doubt. There are many organizations and communities for artists - I highly suggest looking into them!
3- People are friendly.
Before I moved to the big city, I heard so many times that Torontonians were rude and cold. But it’s basically a generalization that people have about bigger cities. After I moved, I met so many down to earth and friendly people, so you really have to see for yourself. One thing that is true - Canadian are nice people. Which makes it easier for artists and entrepreneurs to make friends and connections.
4- There are a LOT of opportunities.
Everywhere you look. If something doesn’t work out, you can be sure to find something else without too much trouble. Just keep your eyes open at all time!
5- The money is here.
Being good at business is a must, and if you excel at it, the money will flow. Toronto has this great advantage over smaller cities in Canada.
6- The city keeps growing.
This means even more of everything in the future - more people, more talent, more jobs, more opportunities, more art. :)
