Around a year ago, I was with another photography studio in Nashville. That was a hip space and I enjoyed being around other creatives on/off throughout the day. But it wasn't quite right and I had very little ownership.
Then a friend of mine and very talented photographer, Andrew Morton, met me for coffee one day and we discussed the possibility of opening our own studio in Murfreesboro; a city of over 120,000+ residents with zero true studios. To say we were excited was the same as saying photographers enjoy cameras. Yes...the idea was a rush.
Even the search for a space was a rush. Unfortunately, after almost a year, the thrill was fading. That space was too small. This space is too expensive. What about this one? No, it's too far away and smells like feet. Then, it happened...
118 W. Vine St.
It was perfect. On the square. Across from the park. Textures and colors galore. Built in 1920. Five private spots and across from free parking when we host events.
Is this happening?
Andrew and I were not giving up on a space in that year long search but we were getting close. The lease sign at 118 W. Vine St. went up and THAT day, we called and now we're open for business. A place to work and dream.
The images, films, music, vows, dinners, conversations, teachings and art created in this space is a dream. I'm thrilled Murfreesboro has a space like this now.
Artist. Come create. Brides. Dream about the day. Musicians. Come share your gift. Teachers of your craft. Plan away.
