Process photography reflects action and movement. These shots depict the celebration of creation, and can be either macro or micro, with tight crops and wide shots.
Inspiration images reveal the emotional aspect of artistic activity. These shots allow the audience to feel connected to what inspires the artists, and vary in style.
Place photography reflects the landscape of our unique city and the spaces where our artists create. These shots should feel documentary in nature, sometimes with a slight voyeuristic quality.
Portrait shots introduce the artists and connect our audience to them. These images depict artists in genuine moments of creation and should feel authentic and inspiring.
