We have decided to give Pictage photographers the opportunity to share their studios with the Pictage community. Every month we will be featuring one of your studios in our Studio Tour Blog. We are interested in viewing and being a part of studios all across the nation as each month our very own photographers take us on a tour.
For our first tour we will be featuring Orlando Pictage User Group leader Brian Adams. Brian Adams Photographics, Inc. is located in Orlando, Florida. He describes his studio as…
“My studio space is a juxtaposition of sorts, which is a lot like my photography. The building which houses my space is an 85-year-old restored bungalow in the middle of downtown Orlando. While the outside has a classic, traditional feel, the inside has a very minimalist look. People have also said that my photography is fresh and new, but is classic enough to be able to stand the test of time. My interior studio setup reflects the style of my wedding photography: clean, simple, modern, high-impact, and lots of emotion. When guests walk through the door of my studio, I want them to stop in their tracks when they see the 5 spot-lit 40×60 canvases on the walls. I chose each image for their emotional quality. One is sweet, one is fun, one is dramatic, one is romantic, etc. I invite my guests to walk around the space, past the fresh flowers, and into each room, before they settle onto the comfy sofa in my meeting room. Here, they are able to enjoy a cold beverage while they view my wedding slideshow on a flat-screen TV and look through a variety of albums. They see my front office and my assistant, but what they don’t see is behind-the-scenes, where I have 6 Mac workstations set up with an equal number of editors, as my other company, EditTeam (www.editteam.com), is based in the back-half of my studio”.
Take a look!
If you are interested in participating in our Studio Tour Video Blog, we ask that you send us a short email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, the city you live in and a few photos of your studio. Every month we will choose one studio to share their space with us and we will feature it on the next month’s blog. We want to see whatever you think viewers would find most interesting, unique, beautiful, inspiring, hilarious about your studio – you choose! Whether you work in a studio like Brian’s or if you work in a Starbucks regularly, we want to see it! Also, you can show us in whichever medium you choose – stills, video (even home video type footage), etc. Thank you for your participation, we are so excited to start touring your studios!
