Adult Treehouses

When we think of treehouses, we probably get ideas of children playing in their yards and having a private place to get away and have fun. However, more and more people are investing time into the art that is creating “adult treehouses.”

These have everything from fully decorated rooms and furniture to professional grade electrical work. Check out some of the photos below for yourself.

Van Gogh in Science

One of my absolute favorites when it comes to painters in the amazing Vincent van Gogh. So, when I found out about this really cool take off of his famous “Starry Night” as created in a scientific setting, I had to share it. I hope you enjoy.

Creative alternatives to your own studio

I used to rent a space to use as a studio for my model and portrait photography work in Pittsburgh. But after a little while, I noticed I wasn’t using it enough to maintain a regular shooting location for the price I was paying. So, if anyone else is also in need of a shooing space from time to time but nothing more, these ideas might help you with some alternative options for indoor shooting.

Airbnb

These vacation rentals are much like hotels except you have a wider variety of options like using an entire house or apartment. The cost is often reasonable and the variety of locations is wide.

Hotel rooms

While these are more expensive and have some major drawbacks including a negative reputation for legitimate photo sessions, they are an option that might work at times.

Unrented property

Sometimes commercial store or office space owners may be willing to allow you to use their space for a short period of time so that they are at least making a few bucks off of a vacant location. You might also be able to arrange a trade with them to provide photos for rental ads in exchange for shooting space.

Bars or clubs

Often during the times when these establishments aren’t operating, the owners or managers may be willing to allow you to use the space for your photography work.

Office rental space

Some groups and companies like Regis rent out spaces for meeting and events. This is a good way to find a safe and professional atmosphere for your shoots.

Extra rooms

If a fried or family member has an unused room at their home you can always ask them if they’d let you use it for your art.

Just a note:

Be sure you are on the same page with the owner of establishment when it comes to the content of your photography work and the images you plan to shoot at the location. This is a major part of being professional and not getting yourself into any legal issues.

New Social Media Sites

Maybe you are looking for more outlets to promote your creative ventures. Or maybe you are just tried of the direction your current social media accounts seem to be going. Whatever the reason, I recently came across two very new social media outlets that you might just find useful.
