Setting Up Shop

I’ve lived in the same South Williamsburg apartment for almost 8 years and have always entertained the idea of making it into a photo studio, but I needed an idea to motivate me into action. Enter the “We Are All Videographers” portrait series. Up until now, all the photos that I have published for this series were repurposed from the “Portraits For A Pledge” series I shot this past summer. They were shot outdoors with natural light and the space I needed to get the right angles.  I dug the way those photos turned out, but wasn’t quite sure if I could duplicate it in my apartment. So I took to task, invited my friend Julia to be subject number one, and to my surprise there was enough space, and just enough natural light (with the aid of a flash) to duplicate the same look and feel of the photos I took outdoors.

My hope is to document videographers from all walks of life, from every level of production, in a democratized set up that features them as the every-man/modern-day storyteller. It took me two days to set up shop, and yesterday I did my first shoot. I will start rolling out the new photos next week.
