THE CREATIVE PROCESS // Letting the Space Speak
Once I have a chance to see and feel and really absorb all that a space is, I can fairly quickly see what I would love to see the space become... in an ideal world where everything goes my way and becomes my vision - me, me, me. Right? But that is not a realistic outcome much of the time, especially when you are working with a client and not on a space for yourself. Duh. Sometimes you actually have to stop and consider their needs and wants (shocking I know!) and consequently this can, on occasion, impede the view or the vision, if you will.
That is not the case with this project, which is so very exciting and makes all of my crazy hair brained 'artsy' ideas that much more fun to attempt and hopefully make a reality. I can't tell you how fabulous it is to work on a project of this nature! The other great thing is that the particular use for this space is something I just happen to know a thing or two about. As someone who shoots in a studio space of my own and has to shoot projects of all varieties all the time, I guess I have picked up a thing or two about what a photographer might need for a space that really works for them. As a crazy dreamer type, I also happen to have just a bit of an understanding of all of those things a photographer might donate a kidney to have at their disposal, you know, if this were a perfect dreamy world where they had a perfect dreamy studio... needless to say I have big plans for this space, that is already ready to go, but is definitely ready for all of the fun and fantastic to be added to the mix.
