We have a wonderful local TV show called "Regional Contact" that covers creative folk in the Ottawa and Eastern Ontario area. I had sent them some info. regarding our local Autumn Artist Tour and of course included my blog with it. I got a call from the Hostess of the show saying how much she enjoyed the blog and wanted to visit the shop and see more of my work. How cool is that? She was also very interested in Marty's Mission Style furniture. It takes two days to do a shoot so the first to visit the other day was the cameraman. Jason was very patient with us and spent hours getting the shots that will eventually become a seamless presentation when it goes to air.
He started with Marty in the workshop. Lots of lighting equipment.
Here. Jason is shooting Marty in action. After lunch he finished up with Marty and then it was my turn. My studio is a little more cramped than the workshop and Joshua, the photographer here, was occupied keeping Odelia in his room while we worked. Sorry, no shots of that. However, we actually assembled a collage and then went out to the Milkhouse to get shots there. It was a long day, but fun too. Next week, the Hostess arrives with another cameraman to do more close-ups of the pieces we have created and to do the interviews. I have no idea when it will air, but it will be a little scary/ interesting watching ourselves, that's for sure.
