There have been a number of changes in my business recently. I moved my studio down the hall last summer. The intention was to create a dedicated portrait space that could serve as both a commercial extension of my business as well as an incubator for ideas. The shooting space is small, but highly malleable affording me an efficient and intuitive workflow. A system of curtains and diffusers enables me to sculpt the light precisely; not to mention a sweet “north light” window.
Most important, it creates a quiet intimate space to have the interaction I like to have when I shoot portraits; a space where my subjects can feel safe and calm without the theater of a larger production. After many years of working exclusively on location; to be able to walk a few feet, flip some switches, and do work that matters to me is a real treat.
