Why we let go of our own photo studio and use Peerspace instead
By Jada Parrish | Article | 12/23/22
Why sign a long-term lease on one photo studio when you can choose from thousands?! For six years, David and I had our own photo studio. It was nice to have a place of our own, but it also came with a ton of added expenses. In addition to high monthly rent, we also had to pay for internet, utilities, furnishings, and insurance. The cost of having our own studio added up quickly and for years there...

How We Were able to Exhibit Our Photos at Miami Art Week And Art Basel!
By Jada Parrish | News | 12/06/22
Last year, David and I went to Miami for Art Basel and Miami art week for fun. We had no idea what to expect, we just knew it was a cool thing that artists did - so we went. Our minds were blown by the sheer amount of art we saw. We saw art that questioned us, inspired us, and confused us. It set our imaginations on fire. I think that was when I really knew I wanted to be considered an artist...
