So 4 years ago today I was in the process of moving into my new space. My old space had been condemned by the TTA ( Triangle Transit Authority ) to make way for the Downtown rail station. Guess what ? My old space is still standing and we don't have a light rail system. I got very lucky finding my space. I worked with the TTA relocation "specialist" whom themselves just relocated here from Denver and knew nothing about the area. I looked at a property a block away and stumbled across a for sale sign on this building. I called and put down $50.00 earnest money that day. 4 years ago was a stressful time, I had 2 little girls ages 1 and 3, I was running a successful photography business, shooting 3-4 times aweek and trying to find a new space before I was kicked out. I've always been a glass is half-full person so I took it all in stride. Things have worked out well. Business is good, my property value has almost doubled and there are big plans for the neighborhood. I've grown to love my space, it still needs alittle TLC, I feel very lucky.

I have a shoot coming up where I need a BIG space to shoot some BIG products. Time to do some location scouting. Big thanks to the people at Empire Properties for showing me the old Tires and Parts place. They just closed on the property @ 10 days ago. I loved the space, but not for this project, the ceiling are alittle low. I know most of my clients are cheap but I don't think they are this cheap. Can't wait to see what Greg Hatem and Empire Properties do with this space.
Some out takes from my shoot with the author of The Millionaire Mistress, check it out on Amazon, been on the best seller list. This was a Big Tex connection, if you've followed this blog you know anything to do woth Big Tex is always a good time.
