That would have been a challenge that the old Playboy of the 60s would have embraced and completed to everyone's satisfacation. Regardless of Mr Jagger.

Ouch - that'll do the back in.

Slow is a tough frustrating one, especially when you're waiting for the green light....

Nice package.  I'm sure your client is happy with those.  As SeanBK said....you lifted the space.

Well done.
AL

The big person chairs were all over the place; about a third of the chairs were wide.  And they were so heavy, I mean all of the chairs, like 45 lb. heavy. 

I did use supplemental lighting, but mainly on the stair to make it shine.  I had a couple of flood lights in the back of the office as well. 

And yes, it is a healthcare office, here is a couple more from the same job. 

BTW, I hate being slow and waiting for people to make up their minds.  I currently have a 15 project proposal out there; one partner said lets do this, waiting on the approval of the 2nd partner.  Come on, just say yes, lets get this moving before fall college sports practice starts up again.  (I just cant show up to a college in Sept. and say, "I'm here to photograph the women's locker rooms."   :D

I am in the process of "relocating" to NYC from Philly and, of course, need to change branding a little.  Shot these two Sunday; although I wish I had sun, I think they came out ok.  Both shot with the Rodie 55, which I am also trying to use more often too.

Hi Joe,

is New York the only place to be as a photographer in the US? It seems a lot of photographers are moving there – even Mark Tucker. Forgive, but I'm curious.

Best,
Johannes

That really depends on what your intentions are and what you want to do with your career.  If you are fine with being a somewhat successful photographer that has good clients and can support a family, then anywhere should be a good place.  And there is nothing wrong with this.  

But if you want to be the best, shoot the best, work for the best clients, use the best equipment, charge the highest fees, then you really need to be in a cultural Hub, and NYC is a hub.  This is where I want to be in my career in a few years, but Philly is not a hub; it is a pit stop between two hubs (sad to say about my home town, but it is true).  

I thought being in Philly would give me advantages, such as being able to learn the business before going after NYC and DC (which was actually a good thing since Philly is a little more laid back), having a lower cost of living, and being able to support NYC and DC clients equally as well since I am in between both cities.  My girlfriend, who is a food photographer, felt the same thing.  However we are finding that a lot of NYC firms do not look at us as "great photographers," but as "great photographers who live in Philadelphia."  I was flat out told by a very prestigious firm in NYC that they thought my work was exceptional and would consider working with me ... if I was in NYC, but since I am not what would be the point.  It is frustrating for both of us.  

To be the best, you need to be in a hub (or at least get established in one), plain and simple.

I can tell you from personal experience  and a lot if years in NYC. You should continue in Philly and make it look like your in NYC for awhile. Get a NYC number and address first, move in steps. living in  NYC is not a golden ticket. Why do they need to know where your house is? In the past if you shot in Brooklyn, you might has well have lived in Kansas. I had friends who got a NYC numbers and address and marketed themselves as a NYC photographers and did very well, why living in Brooklyn. I lived in NYC for over 10 years and did very well, but had very little money left to enjoy. I had another friend in the same boat that did extremely well in NYC and after 10 years moved to CT and he continues to do even better with his NYC number. Its a mind game, you just have to play it.

Hi Joe,

I don’t know you from a bar of soap. But there is an old saying when you are the best there is only one direction and that is down. Take some  advice from a 53 year old photographer who has done pretty good over the years. Longevity is a better option. Also I was invited to New York in the late 90’s to set up a studio and my replay was and leave my beautiful New Zealand no thanks

Cheers
