If you've ever met Steve and Anne Truppe, of trustudio, then you know how fiery passionate they are about their work. You also know that if given the chance, they could spend hours expressing their appreciation for their craft, for art, and for others who are like them and are entrenched in what they do. I love when I get to see these two, because their passion is contagious, and usually rekindles whatever fires I have going on at the time. They bring an energy to their work and their environment that is electric. So when I was finally able to hire them to assist me in a branding shoot for my work, I just about squealed.
I wish that I could have made a time lapse video of Anne and Stephen at work, so that I could share the intense process of photography with the whole world. Because it IS intense. I think we were all exhausted by the end of the shoot! Photographers are such an integral part of branding, marketing, events, advertising...I could go on. I would say even more so for trustudio, because they focus on business storytelling and telling your WHY. They are meticulous with every detail, and because of their background in architecture, they have a heightened eye for design, lighting, texture, and composition.
Shooting my work with them was such an electrifying, emotional, involved experience and I feel so grateful to have such talented friends. I can't wait to show you what we've been working on, to reveal the full project to the world. I have such big plans!! There is still so much work to be done, but this has been such a rewarding and fulfilling project so far. A reveal is coming soon, I promise!
In the meantime, here is a little sneak peek of MY version of my tools of the trade:
