Small spaces can be tragically difficult to design, let alone capture in an image. We absolutely love working with the team at Work-Shop, a creative design firm in Providence, RI. They were commissioned by the Downtown Providence Parks Conservancy to develop a way to organize and manage the small Imagination Center downtown. A small interior that was once essentially a single season storage shed, piled high with equipment and programming supplies was transformed through whimsical, yet precise design into a three season remote office and storage facility. Work-Shop needed to be able to communicate the fluid and playful nature of their design solution, along with the multiple functions of the new space. The images we produced will help tell that story.

Dear Friends, Clients and Supporters,
With 2015 behind us, and already knee-deep in 2016, I wanted to take a moment to look back at the whirlwind that was last year. It began in January with moving the business to Providence, RI, where we are now proudly incorporated. The next twelve months were filled with travel, smiling clients old and new, photo shoots from the ground and the air, awards, publications, exciting prospects, and last but certainly not least: hard work and dedicated service. We strive to provide the best imagery and the best service, and that means being more than a photography provider. It means assisting with the backend work, helping marketing departments make magic happen with tireless coordination and communication, supporting web and graphic design on the behalf of our clients, actively seeking publication and awards opportunities to gain our clients exposure. It's no surprise to me that these efforts are working for both our clients and the Design Imaging Studios brand. I am immensely excited to keep the ball rolling in 2016 and help businesses in the A/E/C industry highlight their best work, showcase their brand and continue to grow.
Cheers to a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!

Shooting this contemporary home by William Masiello was an absolute joy.

Recently, I had the wonderful opportunity to not only photograph the interiors, but to sit down with Linda DiCarlo at her West Side Providence yoga studio to learn about Iyengar yoga, why she dedicated her life to the practice, and how exploring the method could impact a person's physical and mental state. I knew nothing of Iyengar previously, and very little about what drives a yogi. Linda's positive, centered attitude and balanced outlook not only provided great content for the multimedia piece we were producing for her marketing, but also motivated me to give her class a try!
As somebody who is often caught in the daily grind of work, walking the tight rope of balancing a hectic career and making time to care for a body injured by decades of contact sports, I eagerly and openly sought a way to bring my body and mind into alignment. A few weeks into the beginner classes at the Iyengar Yoga Source, I am learning the foundation, with great attention from the instructors. But more importantly, I am witnessing what is possible, if I continue. I'm not quite sure how best to describe it yet, the more advanced students describe it in the video below. It's a workout for your body: you sweat from engaging your muscles and stretching. Its a workout for your mind: you sweat from intensely focusing. But then something almost magical happens. You suddenly realize that you are so focused on what each part of your body is doing that everything else plaguing your mind has disappeared from reality. I have already seen and felt how this can reduce stress; I highly recommend you give it try and perhaps you'll find the same.
