These have been busy times, and I have a number of changes to share with my community:
First off, and most business-changing, I closed the maginei studio at the end of the year, after being unable to secure a new space for the studio. I am still searching for a new studio location, and if you know of studio space available in Santa Cruz, I'd love to hear about it! So, what does that mean to you? First off, I continue to offer catalog and commercial services, but will have to set up at your location in the short-term. Location services continue unchanged.
Have I stopped photographing? Not at all! Just a hiatus from publishing on my blog. In fact, I have great news and kudos to a maginei client, ABW Construction, who just won a prestigious architecture award using maginei photography. Did I mention that this is the 2nd year in a row? Congratulations to ABW Construction, and photos to follow.
The last big item to share is that I am venturing into video - after helping out a good friend and cinematographer with a video shoot recently, I seem to have caught the bug. I'm in a steep learning curve as I discover the joys of audio, motion and location, as well as a completely different approach to visual narrative. I promise to share some results soon.
Well, it's been a belated 2009 update, but please stay tuned as change seems to be the mantra of my year.
Blessings to all,
