Thanks man. These are not the ones going on the site but a basic idea, there will be an overall photo of each item like these, then three detail shoots of each piece.

beautiful furniture, Brian. My only suggestion on the photos would be to make the backgrounds in your pics a little more subtle. i found myself looking at the boards in the background as much as the piece in the foreground.

Good luck. I’m sure you’ll sell those pieces soon.

Nice pieces. Keep up the good work and push the envelope of your creativity and techniques. That will keep your work fresh and exciting.

Thanks everyone, still hopping that I will be able to make a living someday doing this!
jcsterling the show was just a local art fair not really a furniture show, working my way up to those.

Hi Brian I really dig the way you decided to show your work both in the photos and in the booth. I Like how pieces are on a pedestal to give it importance. One immediately knows that each piece must be unique. Your booth was very cohesive showing your style but at the same time you have allowed each piece to show without competing with the other pieces. I also like how you shot the pieces for your portfolio. It gives each piece context and adds character vs just shooting on a plane neutral background. I think it reinforces your mantra “repurpose reclaim, stay Green. Sales will come with your talent I am certain Man.

Your furniture is straight up dope man. Its the kind of furniture I envision building when I get my garage shop together. I loves me the simplicity of your projects-it really lends an air of elegance.
