It’s been a long time since my last blog post, but the studio has been quite busy this past month. In fact, just two weeks ago, I had a GREAT shoot with local artist John Palmer and his gallery manager and partner Ryan Lindsay. I had approached John and Ryan to commission them for an original piece with our address boldly emblazoned on it to place in front of the STP Images studio to help clients find our studio in the congested Museum District. I told them that our studio was hidden a tad from the street and when I described the location to them, it turned out that they knew the previous home owners. They had even visited our home and studio multiple times prior to us ever purchasing it – what a small world! As John was familiar with our place, he knew just what it would take to make a visible statement from the street. We’re completely thrilled with the artwork and can’t wait to get it displayed on McDuffie. There was a great blog post that Ryan Lindsay wrote on February 17 when the artwork was completed.
John and Ryan also mentioned to us during our consultation that they did not have any casual portraits of them working in the studio. They had a few formal shots in suits and/or ties for publicity, but they wanted something that really spoke to the way they work and live. So, after talking a bit about what they wanted, we decided a shoot in the John Palmer studio would be the best way to go. So, we loaded up the Jeep and headed over to the John Palmer studio, set up the lights and went to work in their studio space. It was a casual and fun shoot and took only 90 minutes from setup to completion. We got some great images for them and I know they loved them. John and Ryan stopped by this past Wednesday night to pick up their proofs and to view the video we created for them from the shoot (you can see the video on John Palmer’s Facebook account – go friend him now!). We’ve posted a few of the shots below and hope you enjoy them. Take a look and let us know what you think.
Please visit the John Palmer studio when you have a chance as well. They are located in the Heights and the artwork and their studio is fantastic. Thanks to John and Ryan for the great artwork and for the fantastic images!
