Given that a job is easiest accomplished with the right tools it's smart to buy the best you can.
Mechanics and other tradespeople know this from bitter experience. Nothing is as much fun as a five minute task stretching into a bruised knuckle, inventing words because you've used all the ones you know, hours long horror show.
Photographers are no different. The best camera and lens for the task at hand, the best lighting you can afford and a place to use it all makes the job go better, the result be what was envisioned and most important, a pleased client.
Since I started my business beginning in Ypsilanti and branching out to Ann Arbor and all the surrounding communities the one tool I was missing was a place to shoot in bad weather and the ability to offer a wider range of services.
Finally that dream has been realized and the work on my new studio space is finished.
It's been a huge investment in time, equipment and labor (thanks to my son and Duane our painter) but I'm officially open and eager to entertain clients offering a much more sophisticated menu of shooting options in portraits, head shots and product photography.
Here are some photos of the space. Sincerely hope to see you soon.
