Allied Studios First Open House!!!


As you all know by now even though I am VERY subtle about it, (I’M EXCITED!!!!) I started renting space in the Allied Studios loft in DTLA this December and since have been having a blast shooting everything I can in the beautiful daylight bay I claimed, while also getting to know my studio-mates!

One of the many hurdles I have had as I grow my photography business and transition into the new to me market of food and beverage is the isolation I can feel as a freelancer. It’s very easy to get caught up in the mix of running around, meeting deadlines and marketing for new gigs and forget that this is a huge big city full of amazing folks that work just as hard on just as creative projects.

As I joined this space I was elated to get to share a physical space and some emotional space with all of these amazing creatives! We have (2) other photographers, a painter, a creative producer, an amazing graphic artist and a super rad clothing designer and now that we are a full house brimming with energy we decided to show the world what we are all about and open our doors for the first open house where we are all together! If you were not in the LA area (or were but were massively busy on your own hustle…I see you!) I want to share some shots I took of the most excellent event!
