It started with a conversation sitting in her converted shipping container studio. And it ended in shear beauty - the earrings and the photos!
Bozeman based silversmith, Cynthia Wadley interviewed me in preparation for our day together: What do I like? What are my usual jewelry wearing habits? What message does my look send about me? What was I comfortable wearing - weight, dangle, swing, etc? Did I have a specific use for the earrings? And a whole lot of discussion of my personality. A process of the artist collecting the information and a customer/client dreaming of the perfect creation.
Then, we both got down to business: Cynthia to the business of silversmithing, me to photographing a day in her work life. What she does all day is beautiful, and here are the photos to prove it.
From my words to these earrings - the creative process is such a beautiful thing! And photographing it was a fantastic experience! We bounded over camera clicks and hammer strikes, forging a relationship that manifests itself in the only earrings I've worn since she presented them to me that afternoon.
So, what do you do all day that is beautiful and photo worthy? Don't fool yourself by thinking you don't have anything this fantastic going on in your business: Your small (or large) business, in Bozeman or anywhere in the US, is photo worthy - what you do all day is beautiful! And you know, of course, that I would love to be the photographer!
