Artist of the Week: Justin Thor Simenson

JUSTIN’S BIO:

I have always been drawn to photos. The idea that you an capture a moment in time that will never happen again has inspired me to become a photographer.

I used a Nikon Coolpix 4300 for two and a half years. I was pretty happy with it for its convenience, but wanted more. I currently use a Canon Digital Rebel XT. I am really happy with this camera. I have 4 lenses a Canon 15-55mm, Canon 75-300mm, Cannon 50mm 1.8, and a Lensbaby 2.0. I also have a Canon AE-1 film camera with several lenses included a 50mm and 75-200mm.

My goal as a photographer is to share the beauty of the places I have been with others. I print my photography on a customer by customer basis. This is to insure that each customer receives exactly what fits their own personality and budget. I also like to get to know each person that has one of my photographs.

Framing sale!

Through December 18th Chroma Studios is having a custom framing sale! 25% off our already low prices! We are open Saturdays noon-6pm or by appointment, Wed. – Fri. Give us a call or come by and see us! (We will be closed November 27th)

November First Friday: November 5, 2010, 6-10 pm

This month we are having a silent auction for charity. Unlike many silent auctions that focus on one charity, this auction will benefit several charities. Those placing the winning bid on a piece will choose the charity for the proceeds on that particular piece. 50% of the sales will go to charity and 50% will go back …to the artists. There are many local charities doing great work right here in Albuquerque.  Just a few to mention are the Roadrunner Food Bank, the Boys and Girls Club, Habitat for Humanity, the Wilderness Project, and Roberta’s Place.

The November First Friday Show will also be the beginning of our annual Holiday Art Sale. This show is always festive and fun with lots of fine art to choose from. Most of the pieces will be priced $250 and under! The holiday show will run through December 18th.  In addition, please be sure to visit our friends upstairs at Better Body & Beyond.
