A Studio Vision Come True

November 01, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

It is not a secret that for the past 10 years I have shared conversations with others about having a studio space that photographers can share, in order to help grow their business, but without managing the overhead alone. My first studio space was in Allouez and I remember talking to my friend Mike Peters, after a meeting with our photography club that we had started with some enthusiasts, about my vision of having a space that can be shared by photographers. The location in Allouez served it's purpose however I wanted to be more visible and found a great opportunity on Broadway.  

In 2009, I started on my own in the studio and quickly got involved with both the Downtown area and On Broadway groups. I would like to thank Jeff Mirkes and Molly Vandervest for welcoming me and sharing my photography to help promote events in the area.  I love being part of the community and helping businesses grow, as well as seeing events come into focus for the growing Downtown Green Bay area! And on the Broadway side, Christopher Naumann helped get things rolling for me by getting me in touch with marketing events. It has been a pleasure working with the different people in the On Broadway office, and I have been excited to see the changes that have taken place since. I even had some great opportunities to share with business owners like 335 The Traveling Chef (Christopher Mangless), Red Barn Photography (Mandi Wilke), who was my first partner at the studio, Monzu Bakery (Jennifer), and Titletown Brewery (Brent). 

In 2015, I have gained some friendships, partners, and colleagues in the photography realm that now share the studio at 110 S Broadway.  We gave it a try at 411 Dousman but the space proved to be a little much in overhead and with a lucky phone call to Ray, our new landlord, we found a diamond in the rough. Scott Eastman wanted this space three years ago, and now he is in it! This vision has come true.  I have three wonderful partners that do awesome work. We have a beautiful studio that you can see just passing by.  There is an open house event coming up, but you always have an  invite to share the experience with your photo session at the studio, just give us a call and we will be happy to have you!

Thank you to my partners for being so patient with our second location.  Thank you for your visions and contributions! And thank you for helping this vision come true, to have a place we can share and help grow our own businesses!
