I have an old friend who is a skilled electrician. When I first moved in to my new studio space I asked him to do some wiring work for me, since I needed to beef up the electrical infrastructure to run my lighting equipment. He was happy to do the work in trade, and he came over and did everything in under two hours.
For over a year, I waited to pay him back for our “trade” by photographing one of his big residential installations. I finally got a call from him this Summer.
The space was a home office. It had been exquisitely finished, including electrical work such as wiring for sound (wall speakers), accent lighting, sconces, a chandelier, etc, etc. It was a beautiful space, and it was my pleasure to capture some of my friend’s masterful work.
