TIA International Photography would like to take a moment to share a promo video from a very good friend, Canadian author Kirk DeMatas, regarding the upcoming published release of his 2nd compilation of profound poetry, “Conversations with Skeletons.” TIA traveled on assignment to Toronto last September to conduct the photo shoot with Kirk and mutual friends.
