I had a wonderful time meeting and photographing the team at Flitch Studios the other day here in the Denver area. We made some environmental portraits and captured some documentary photography as they worked. Their craftsmanship is amazing, and I’d LOVE to just sit in the chair they were working on at the time.
I was finally able to photograph Annie at The Denver Puppet Theater the other day. She is always amazingly busy, I found. That makes sense because Annie is not only a wonderful puppeteer putting on a variety of fantastic shows. She also creates all of the puppets, is a kind human being and provides a wonderful service to all of the children who attend. I believe that her method of helping people think creatively and open their mind is treasure to all those who attend.
A day of hanging out and photographing young, creative entrepreneurs brewing beer in Denver = fun + interesting pictures. I intend to visit each of these breweries (and hopefully some of the others in the area) again, for sure.
All the fun and photography reminded me that there is something about buying a product/service usually procured from a large corporation directly from an individual producer that is quite satisfying to me.
