Architectural Photographer, Angie McMonigal, shares beautiful, oftentimes hidden perspectives in her work.
Q >What is keeping you inspired or helping you get through this time as a photographer? Recommendations?
A > Attending webinars with APA and other photographers, lots of reading and watching documentaries:
Abstract: The Art of Design, Vertical City, Zaha Hadid: An Architect, A Masterpiece, How Much Does Your Building Weigh, Mr. Foster?), podcasts (BAAM, Tim Ferris, Armchair Expert, Conan O'Brien Needs a Friend). authors/books
I've been tackling the long list of books I never seem to get to. I just finished Why We Sleep by Matthew Walker, Ph.D., What Clients Love by Harry Beckwith and Santiago Calatrava: The Complete Works by Alexander Tzonis. I'm currently reading My Faraway One: Selected Letters of Georgie O'Keeffe and Alfred Stieglitz and City of Girls by Elizabeth Gilbert.
At this point hobbies are mostly catching up on all that reading I always seem to put off and spending more time with my kids playing games, doing puzzles, watching movies and going for walks.
art (how is your studio practice shifting)?
Work and inquiries have definitely slowed but I've had a couple of smaller sales and the partnership with Minted seems okay. I haven't been making new art lately, but have been reviewing some business practices for when things start getting back to normal. However, the books and shows I've watched and webinars I've attended will likely influence my work long term, time will tell.
I will be teaching at an online conference the last weekend of April with Out of Chicago Photography and I'm putting together an online webinar on licensing images with my teaching partner, Michael Muraz, through our site, Photography Unfolded. So, there's more teaching and ideas for future webinars I've been coming up with ideas for.
Thank you for sharing, Angie❤️
