It's official... I'm leaving Nelsonville

I've decided to close up shop here in Nelsonville. I love the building... sigh... but it's not worth staying for. I've met a lot of amazing people and I've photographed lots of them... but I've come to realize that I need more than this space. I need an open schedule so I can work more on larger projects - and expand my work into larger markets and cities.

I must admit now that Nelsonville is not the right town for me. I have never seen a place more unorganized. It's all flying by the seat of your pants here. I just wish someone would have told me just how difficult it was going to be - not the business part, but dealing with the politics of the town - I would have thought twice about ever opening my doors.

What to do... what do to...

I've been pondering whether or not I should leave Nelsonville and try something different. I am in LOVE with the Marilyn & Me project and really enjoy working on large projects like this. I love photographing women and making them feel brautiful... plus more than 85% of my photo time is OUTSIDE the studio - and either on location or at an event. I question whether I really do need all this space. hmmm.... I need to make a pro/con list and really give this some thought. Oh.. and for those of who who've already given me your input, I REALLY appreciated it. Thank you. You've been incredible.
