Two things. First thing, if you're visiting from reading Erin Habes article on BuffaloSpree.com, welcome. If you're looking for more photos from our Buffalo Spree shoot, you can find them a little further down in this post. The second thing is I'm happy to announce I'm ready to accept booking in my new studio at the historical Wurlitzer Building in North Tonawanda, right on Niagara Falls Blvd. This studio wouldn't be possible without the generosity and commitment from the management staff at the Wurlitzer and for that I am forever grateful to them for making a dream of mine come true. Right now I have nearly six hundred square feet of studio space, divided in two rooms on the third floor of one of the old Wurlitzer Factory buildings. With this announcement I'm also announcing my first block of bookings at a special price - $200 for a 4hr session which includes rights to all photos and retouching (if needed). Multiple sessions rate is $125 with a 3 session minimum. The studio at Wurlitzer is a really great space. It's an open room, with an off set room perfect for setup or a second smaller studio. There are two 6 foot windows that allow for constant east to west sunlight to shine in throughout the day. The room can be configured nearly any way possible for any style shoot as well as a freight elevator that will allow heavy gear/props to be brought up - I can't wait to do my first studio motorcycle shoot in a few weeks, but I digress. The goal of this studio is not just for my work, but for the work of others, and let other be able to create there. Later this spring and summer, pending legalities, I will open the studio up for daily rentals as there is a need for rentable space in Buffalo on a per/hour/day basis. Right now there aren't many affordable places for students, hobbyists, or other freelancers to be able to shoot - that will change this spring so stay tuned. So that's my studio announcement. As for the Buffalo Spree shoot, it was great to work with Erin Habes again. She's really a great personality and very committed to all things fashion in Buffalo. She originally tagged me to do a makeshift studio shoot at the Mass Appeal show last November. We got such good response from Mass Appeal, including the biggest one day hits this site has had, that we decided to do the same things for Runway 4.0 later this spring. We'll be meeting to see what more we can do to make the impromptu studio even better this time around. The make up shoot was shot last Friday at another room in the Wurlitzer, mud was still drying at my studio, and overall I'm very happy with the way everything came out. Photo's below. Cheers!
