Come this fall, I have been doing photography professionally for about six years (and as a journalist for 20+). To this point, most of that work has been “in the wild”: events, environmental portraiture, editorial, and on location.
But over the last few years I have repeatedly thought how nice it would be to have a permanent studio, a place to do more controlled portraiture and headshots, to meet with clients in a quiet, pleasant environment.
And so, when the artist studio that neighbored our publishing company’s office became available, I decided to take the leap and snap it up. I had always loved the beautiful light this space gets and thought it would make a perfect studio. And of course the location cannot be beat.
Of course, 20 years as a working painters’ studio meant the space needed a lot of TLC. Here are some before pictures.
But, after Todd and his team got the floor sanded and all the walls repainted, it just took some curtains, a bit of furniture, a v-flat (thanks, Bob!) and the studio is now open for business! And, yes, the light it gets is amazing. Perfect for some winter, natural light portraits.
