I can finally spill the beans on something we’ve been working on for quite some time now. After searching high and low we’ve finally found a new location for our studio. We are very excited about the move.
We’ll be in our new location May 1st, just in time for our May 17th Studio Lighting class. The new studio is about 400 square feet larger than our current space – and all of that new space is going to be dedicated to our workshops. This means that we’ll have a permanent classroom space!
The new classroom is being custom built for us. As soon as construction begins I’ll start posting photos. With the permanent space I’ll be able to offer more workshops. The first thing we’re adding are classes for post production. That means Lightroom and Photoshop. As things come together I’ll be making announcements about the new Photoshop classes.
I’m also going to be offering two free workshops. Neither workshop has a name (please leave your suggestion in the comments section) but they are going to be terrific.
The first workshop will be focused on using photography as a means for social change. I’ll be discussing ways you can use your skills at your local non-profit organization, church, animal shelter, border crossing, or war zone.
The second workshop isn’t really a workshop at all. It’s a gathering of people that meet to talk about their current photography and learn from each other. It will be limited to 10 people and won’t be a teacher/student type of environment. I will be the facilitator but not necessarily the teacher. Applicants will have to submit a portfolio and artistic statement to be considered. The group will meet weekly for about 12 weeks. Look for more details soon.
The new studio is located a few miles west of our current location. It’s on 40th street just north of Southern Ave. As soon as we have the lease signed and sealed we’ll be publishing the exact address.
The move keeps us close to the airport for folk flying in for our workshops but moves us out of the flight path so we don’t have to listen to jets flying over all the time. You can see the studio from the street so people will have a much easier time finding us, and the floors are brand new and beautiful!
So here’s what I need from you:
- Suggestions for the names of my new free workshops.
- Any special requests you have for the Photoshop classes.
- Word of mouth – please tell your friends about us. Our new location is twice as expensive and we really need to stay busy!
