New Studio is Complete
The new studio space is complete and it is amazing! It has more than double the shooting space. It is modern, clean and updated. It will allow for more creative light control as well as larger class sizes. Â We’ll have some natural light options inside the studio now as well
We now have an entrance on the outside of the strip mall just to the right of the door you have used in the past. Â There is a new purple sign over the entrance that reads “Alive Photography Studio Share” – just walk right in.
Private lessons are available for $50 per hour and can be done either in studio or on location. Invite your friends for steep discounts for additional students at a private lesson. Â Contact me for more details.
