I am often told I should blog, so this is me trying it out for the first time. Since graduating photography school in June 2015, I've been working as the photographer/sales associate at a mid century modern furniture store. For those of you that don't know what the heck that is, it's more or less 60's-70's style furniture with class and great lines. Being an interior photographer at heart, I am more than excited to share space with classic designs that shaped an era; and continue to have influence on designs of today. Pick up any of the big magazines; Dwell, Luxe, and even Connecticut Cottages and Gardens, and I can guarantee you will see MCM design elements and influences. I am just dipping my toes in the world of design, studying what is hot and what is not. That being said I've had the pleasure of photographing furniture with names like Knoll, Robsjohn Gibbings, John Widdicomb, Milo Baughman, and Hans Wegner. Having the chance to photograph these iconic designs has made me realize how essential it is to capture the room in a way that also flatters the furniture. Before photographing furniture daily, I was much less aware of how to make a piece look good as part of an interior photo. I am eager to see where this position will take me, as I start to make connections with people in the interior design and architecture field.
