Studio Size Wall Gallery

Studio Size Wall Gallery

This inspires me to no end! The uber talented portrait photographer, Anna Mayer talks about her studio size samples....arranged in the most artful display I have ever seen "My husband, Brian, and I are partners in this photography venture. We both LOVE graphic design and have a blast taking that design off of the paper and onto the wall. We have designed many fun galleries for clients, for boutiques and coffee shop displays. This one is one of my favorites and hangs on the office wall opposite my desk. I am more of a “symmetry girl” and typically prefer galleries such as sixteen 10x10’s in a grid. However, I know that not everyone loves symmetry, including my clients, so I forced myself to think outside the box. The results were really more pleasing than I expected and this wall has grown on me. These represent almost all of my larger print sizes which is great for ordering appointments. They are printed on masonite from Millers and then mounted on three levels of foam core hidden behind to give them relief. We then hung the prints using Velcro strips. One side is sticky and is placed on the back of the foam pieces and the other side of the Velcro is actually stapled (with a staple gun) to the wall. The damage to the wall is very minimal and hanging is really simple! The hardest parts of doing a gallery like this is the original design, because it can end up looking like a mess if you are not careful and laying out the “relief” so that the various levels overlap properly. Overall, though, it is simply fun!" I think it's simply amazing. Don't you agree?

As a photographer based in Charleston, SC, summer is my busiest time of the year. So instead of vacationing elsewhere, I like to escape in my own city for a few days at a time. Given that Charleston won the 2016  “World’s Best City” award by Travel & Leisure, after being a top city for the past four years, there’s plenty to see and do and see as a guest in my own city!
