Anyone who has followed my social media meanderings over the past year may have heard me talk about getting a studio once, twice, perhaps three times. Well it finally happened! As of July 2014 I have a shooting space in NYC on 27th St and 6th Ave. I am honored to be sharing with the incomparable Beth Galton, who I have known many years. Party to follow soon!
The back story: A little over Eight years ago when my wife was pregnant with our second daughter I decided to take a break from commuting to be home a bit more. I completed a shooting space/office in my three car garage and started to use that as my home base, renting in the city when needed. Like anything, it worked great for a while. And I was certainly happy to have a low overhead in 2009. Oh lordy, 2009. Let's all have a moment of silence for 2009. But I began to miss being in the city and you know what they say, change is good. Having a studio in NYC is a much different prospect today than it was 20 years ago when I opened my first place. Many photographers, like Beth and myself, have banded together to share space and resources. There will always be a need for content, the struggle is to remain relevant in an ever changing landscape. It is truly a great time to be an image maker.
