The New Spectacle Studio!
Two weeks ago Richard Johnson and I signed a lease to our new studio. This is a big thing for us, and has been a long time coming. Rich and I met 8 years ago at a networking event for weddings, and as we handed each other our wedding portfolios we announced our hatred of being wedding photographers and videographers, and we've been thick as thieves ever since. A lot has changed since then, and all for the better. I left my wedding videography company to do combat photography shortly after I met Rich, and he stopped doing weddings and became a full-blown Creative Director for a multi-million dollar corporation. Some years went by like this as we honed our craft, and during that time Rich kept Spectacle safe and sound on the back burner. However, a year ago I returned from far away lands and Rich and I decided it was time for a big change of pace. We rebranded Spectacle, committed to it full time, and created some awesome works. Over the last year we've gained an unbelievable amount of momentum, one of Rich's projects even ended up being showcased in Washington D.C. by UNAIDS. We soon realized that our momentum wasn't fading, and that it was becoming more difficult to co-op with other photographers and studios due to the amount of work we were doing. It was time, time to bite that bullet and run our own studio, complete with a brick and mortar location. This is the first time we've had our very own studio, exclusive to us, and it's already proven to be everything we've hoped for. So here's to Spectacle, may it live long and prosper!
