SFA and EyeEm Workshop Welcomes José Cabaço, Tutes, and Thomas Welch

Space for Arts and EyeEm hosted José Cabaço, Tutes, and Thomas Welch for a stimulating workshop on brand photography in a welcoming West Village studio. The three speakers, each with a wealth of experience, were invited to share their stories and secrets to success in shooting for brands. From the photographers in the audience, it was only positive feedback and rave reviews.  Rarely is there an intimate setting where photographers not only have access to these talented creatives, but were able to mix, mingle, socialize and connect in a way that impacts careers.

The change produced an organic flow of presentations; each talk seemed to parallel the typical career path, growing in sophistication, delving into more advanced niches, and ultimately touching upon many of the […]

“Toast Water is a culinary art book created by photographer Noah Fecks and renowned food stylist and author Victoria Granof. Together they illustrated vintage recipes from Noah’s Nana as a bound volume of inspiring photographs and original text. The size, binding and cover of the book is inspired by children’s holy books and was printed at a press that specializes in the manufacturing of Torahs.”
