I've transformed a short school bus into a working photography studio space on wheels. The mobile studio bears a dream, allowing space outside the box, one beyond the unrealistic financial constraints of leasing a storefront.
I aim to photograph my community through portraiture and by documenting local artists’ work for their own elevation, portfolios, and creative/professional advancement. My long-term goals include working with addicts and those grieving the loss or expectant loss of loved ones through photographic art therapy and portraiture.
In 2003, I learned how to operate a professional film portrait studio in San Diego, CA. For over 15 years now, I've been meeting clients in OR parks, lugging my studio setup into their homes, taking time to set up in their living rooms.
In Oct of 2017, I figured out an easier way. I love how the mobile studio provides convenience to my clients by allowing me to come to them, and still photograph in my own creative space.
I raised the funds to purchase the bus and for the tools needed to renovate it into my mobile dream studio.
Curious? Please visit my successful Kickstarter campaign to see how it all got started.
