I used to have my office in my home. There was a living room area that I had a wall built into with french doors to be my office in my home. Needless to say, I was bursting at the seams. So, back in Nov, I finally signed a lease on a studio in Orem. That's right, I have a bonified office space/studio/lab/store front. I have gutted it (complete remodel from top to bottom) and am still in the process of the finishing touches (deck/loft, kids play room, kitchen etc). I hope to have it completely finished by the end of Feb/beginning of March. Photos surely to follow.
The other great this is there will be a lot more studio work since I now will have a 15ft wide x 20ft tall white cove for shooting (extends out towards you 15ft as well). Quite the upgrade in space from 150 sq ft in my house to the new 1800+ sq ft :). And I work side by side with 2 cool cats almost daily (exhibit a and exhibit b).
2011 is going to be one amazing year for sure.
PS, if you were wondering, I took every photo on that wall except the Obama one which is a signed Martin Schoeller print. And to give you a sense of size, the shot of the little girl in the middle is printed 16x20 on 17x22 paper.
As you read/look at this, I am in Dallas TX shooting their wedding. Where hopefully it is a good 40 degrees warmer than UT :).

And for you camera geeks out there, this is Kodak Portra 400 shot @ box speed with NO overexposing and if anything underexposing by a half stop. The bw images were shot on a Contax G2 on some generic color neg film from China.
This must be some kind of record. 3 wedding blog posts in less than a week!
Hands down, the grandmother who was crazy dancing is my favorite guest from all of my 2010 weddings. She even danced with me a couple times and winked at me too :). It was AWESOME to say the least.
Thanks Sarah & Tanner for having me out!

And super geeky tech info, the color shots are all shot on Kodak Portra 400 (except for the color Holgas -square images- as that was shot on Kodak Portra 800). And some of the Kodak Portra 400 is pushed to 1600, now guess which ones :).
