This year, I built a kitchen photo studio on my property in the Hudson Valley. It has 800 square feet of open space on the main floor, complete with 10′ ceilings, a concrete floor, and a new gas stove and fridge. There are 16′ x 4′ banks of north and south facing windows, and windows to the east and west.
Upstairs, there is a bathroom, storage area, and a collection of props, linens, and surfaces I have been collecting over the years. I have tons of vintage flatware.
Photos of the finished interior to come soon. As of January, 2019, we are installing a display shelf in the kitchen. When that is done, I will do a big photo update.
This studio is especially suited to shoots where there may not quite be a budget to rent a studio in NYC, but lots of space is still required. Who is tired of shooting in cramped walk-up studios in Brooklyn? How about strange vacation rentals?
This is the perfect place to shoot a cookbook, or any kind of photo campaign. We also have a tiny AirBnB cottage on our property, which suits 1 to 2 people. And our town is full of new restaurants and a new boutique hotel, should you want to bring the team for a Hudson Valley experience.
I am currently booking shoots for the coming months. Email me with any inquiries, no shoot is too large or too small to discuss.
